Baseball Betting and MLB Betting

Baseball betting totals at SBG Global are something that serious players look at each year. There are a number of factors to consider when looking at totals in MLB betting including umpires. That is why, this 2016 MLB betting season we want to advice you what to look at every time you wager baseball at SBG Global.


Baseball betting for some people really does involve wagering on totals. There are gamblers and handicappers that consider totals a great way to make money in baseball betting. Some of those gamblers really look at the umpire factor. Finding out the home plate umpire before each game is easy enough to do, so taking umpires into consideration when betting totals is something you should consider.

Baseball betting totals are available on every game from April until June at SBG Global. That means you have a lot of games to choose from. Looking at umpires is one way to increase your chances of winning in MLB betting. Remember that umpires rotate from first base to home plate and around the diamond so you can easily predict who the next day's umpire will be. Also, you can go to the stats page and verify the Umpire Report. MLB stats with us also include games, matchups, team stats, pitcher stats, pitcher reports, standings, trends and injuries.

If you are looking at baseball betting totals there are some things to remember going back to the umpire trend. It seems like a good idea when you bet on baseball to follow statistics from previous years but for some reason the data doesn't always hold true with umpires. It could be that umpires are human and not the most consistent so their trends are tough to figure out. Nevertheless, SGB Global always tries to have the best and most precise statistics for all MLB betting fans.

With baseball betting totals there are the basic stats like ERA, hitting, home/away numbers etc. Those are usually incorporated into the MLB betting line. The umpire is never taken into consideration as the oddsmakers simply don't care who is behind the plate. This also applies to baseball bet sides since there are trends for umpires in terms of how they call a game for the home or the road team. Most people ignore this factor but there are some interesting stats to look at in regards to umpires.

There is no question that totals in baseball betting don't get as much attention as sides. That doesn't mean they can't be profitable and looking at the umpire factor might just give you the added edge you need to win in MLB betting at our sportsbook.

2016’s World Series MLB Betting Preview

2016 World Series BettingEntering the 2016 MLB betting season, the top sportsbooks had the Chicago Cubs pegged as the favorites to win this year’s World Series. Several months down the line, the Cubs have failed to disappoint and are on their way to proving several preseason predictions true. Coming into the season, there were plenty of reasons to jump onto the Cubs bandwagon, but seeing Chicago pull through is still a momentous occasion. After all, the last time the Cubs made the World Series was back in 1945, and the last time they won it was in 1908. You know, the year of the Tunguska event. So to say that the city of Chicago is ecstatic would be an understatement, especially when considering the horrors they’ve had to endure at the hands of the city’s NFL team.

Why A-Rod deserves to be in Baseball’s Rogue Gallery

Alex Rodriguez legacy On August 12th, 2016 MLB betting fans saw the last of Alexander Emmanuel "Alex" Rodriguez. Why is A-Rod not getting a season-long victory lap like David Ortiz? There is one very important reason for that; people actually like Big Papi. And that’s a good thing; more power to him. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that being disliked, or even hated, as Rodriguez is, is actually a bad thing, especially in sports. Everybody rants and raves about sports heroes. Michael Jordan is a sports hero. Jackie Robinson broke barriers. Muhammad Ali is a role model.
