Baseball Betting Money Management

Baseball betting money management is one of the most important parts to making money during the baseball season.

Did you know that there are at least 90 games on the baseball schedule each week? If you double that amount to include the over/unders on each game that gives you 180 separate chances to make a baseball bet each week during the long baseball betting season.

Baseball betting money management begins by deciding how many games to play and how much money to bet on each game. With 180 baseball betting opportunities each week that gives us a lot to choose from. This means you don’t have to make a baseball bet on every game. You can really afford to be very selective with your baseball betting. The season stretches from April until October, so there is plenty of time to find games you really like. You can’t be like many bettors that go overboard and bet numerous games each day. Unless you have a very large bankroll and a good baseball betting plan, wagering on that many games is a recipe for disaster.

If you are going to make a baseball bet on a regular basis then keeping your wager amounts small is a wise decision. Many people recommend that your baseball bet amounts be at about 5%. If you want to take it a step further then you might want to keep your amounts at 2% or even 1% of your overall baseball betting bankroll. Baseball betting, like other forms of betting, is a game of ups and downs, and you want to be around for the ups, and not get wiped out by the downs. No game is a lock or an absolute winner.

When talking about baseball betting money management you can’t forget about the bankroll. You need enough money to be able to make plays of 5% or less. Let’s say you have a $1,000 baseball betting bankroll. That means your plays should be at $50 or less. That is sometimes hard to do, but in the long run you will be better off. The last thing you want to happen is to get ruined early in the year by a bad streak. Keeping your bets at a reasonable percentage of your baseball betting bankroll can make that happen. If you want to make wagers of $100 or more then you should have at least a $2,000 baseball betting bankroll for your wagers.
