Spring is upon us and that means that a sports bettor’s fancy is turning to baseball. The boys of summer have already sprung into action and so have several of the top online sportsbooks, which are pitching in by offering MLB-related promotions.
Let’s look at some of the ways bettors can cash in on MLB action.
PointsBet MLB Home Run Insurance Offer
Place a bet on any player from the selected game to hit a home run. Bettors will receive their money back up to $25 in free bets if that player fails to hit a home run but their team wins the game.
William Hill MLB Bonus – Money Ball
At William Hill, with their Money Ball promotion players can access bonus prizes in the form of free bets each day of the MLB season based on the performance of selected players from selected games.
Bettors must place a pregame, full game, moneyline wager of at least $50 on one of the teams in the selected games. Participants can be awarded for up to two qualifying games, but will only be awarded for the first bet per qualifying game.
One player from each of the selected teams is chosen as that team’s representative for this promotion. Suppose a player were to wager on the Los Angeles Angels and the player designated for the promotion by William Hill was Angels outfielder Mike Trout. Bettors would receive $10 in free bets for every hit, RBI and run scored in the game by Trout and $5 for each walk or stolen base Trout produced.
Credits will be applied directly to a participant’s William Hill account within five business days after the promotion period has expired. The free bet must be used within seven days after it is awarded into the account or it will expire.
Borgata Friday MLB Parlays
Every Friday at Borgata NJ is MLB parlay day. They offer bettors the chance to play both team and player parlays in MLB games slated for each Friday during the course of the season.
Two MLB teams are combined into a parlay package. Wager on that tandem and if they both win their Friday games, the bet cashes.
Player parlays combine a duo who must accomplish pre-established achievements during their Friday games. For instance, it could be Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers hitting a home run and Randy Arozarena of the Tampa Bay Rays knocking a hit. If both of those events occur, the bet cashes
