Sports Betting is Taking Over the U.S. Now What?

There’s going to be a lot more Americans betting on sports this MLB season. A variety of new states, including New York, launched regulated sports betting within the past six months. 

OddsJam has MLB odds and betting lines from over forty sportsbooks, including FanDuel and DraftKings.

This screenshot above highlights one of the most important strategies when it comes to sports betting: the importance of line shopping. DraftKings and FanDuel are the two most popular sportsbooks in the States, but they also have different odds for the Reds and White Sox moneyline in the screenshot above. 

If an individual just looked at DraftKings and placed a bet on this game they would be doing themselves a disservice. The difference between -108 odds and -110 odds might not seem like a lot, but if you are consistently placing bets with the best odds offered to you then you are maximizing your profits over time as well.

Overall, the sports betting scene is taking over the sports landscape as a whole. You can’t watch TV for more than 5 minutes without seeing at least one advertisement for a sportsbook. 

Now, even sports teams and leagues are starting to take advantage of this movement. What was once taboo for people affiliated with sports teams to even mention has now become an arms race to partner with and sponsor sportsbooks. 

With the MLB ending the lockout and returning on April 7th, this MLB season is going to see more volume of bets and amount of money bet on baseball than ever before. Not only that, but more and more states are working to legalize mobile sports betting as soon as this year!

At OddsJam, our goal is to help enhance your sports watching and also betting experience. The odds screenshot of the White Sox and Reds game you see above is a completely free feature that we offer.
