Runline Meaning – A Very Popular Type of Bet Available in Baseball Games
Last Updated: May 31, 2022
The runline is a popular baseball point spread bet of -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog.
It’s one of the main baseball markets and provides sports bettors with additional betting value in matchups where there’s a clear favorite and underdog.
For example, if you bet the runline on the Red Sox (-1.5) against the Dodgers (+1.5), the Red Sox need to win by more than one run for you to win the bet.
If you place a wager on the Dodgers, they can win or lose by one run, and you’ll still win your bet.
