Top NCAA baseball betting apps 2024

DraftKings Sportsbook in KY

DraftKings Sportsbook KY says it posts more college baseball regular season odds than any other sportsbook. That said, in April 2023, we could find only moneyline odds for a handful of games involving major programs.

As of January 2024, no College World Series odds for the 2024 season have been released, but they could be listed soon because the college baseball regular season begins in early February.

BetMGM Sportsbook in KY

BetMGMBetMGM Sports says it has the best college baseball betting odds and lines around. In reality, it posts only moneyline odds for regular-season games involving major programs.

There’s a drop-down menu offering First 5 Innings bets, but it is just there to tell you these bets are not available in college baseball betting markets. We assume BetMGM’s college baseball odds are ramped up for the College World Series games, but that remains to be seen.

Can I live bet on college baseball?

Online sportsbooks post numerous lines that you can bet on ahead of college baseball games. In theory, these same sportsbooks should allow you to bet on those same lines during the games at odds that change with the action on the field. However, in reality, the small amount of action college baseball draws means sportsbooks won’t dedicate the resources required to make live college baseball betting happen.

If any sportsbook does offer live college baseball betting in the future, it will likely surround College World Series games.

How to bet on college baseball in Kentucky

Online sportsbooks offer three basic college baseball game lines, including:


Pick a winner and lock in your bet at the currently posted odds ahead of the game. If your pick wins, you get paid at those odds.

Kentucky might be at +105 on the moneyline against Louisville at -115. That means a $100 bet on the Wildcats would pay $105 plus your bet back if they win the game. Meanwhile, a $115 bet on the favored Cardinals would pay $100, plus your bet back if they win the game.

Run lines

The run line is baseball’s point spread. The run line must be factored into the final score to determine which side wins each bet. Most standard run lines are set at 1.5 runs, which means betting that the favorite will win by two runs or more. Of course, you can also bet on the underdog to win the game outright or lose by a single run.

Louisville might be at -1.5 (+110) versus Kentucky at +1.5 (-105) on the run line. Louisville is the moneyline favorite (as seen above), but with the run line factored in, Kentucky becomes the betting favorite. The Cardinals need to win by two or more for run-line bets on them to pay off. However, you’ll win run-line bets on Kentucky if they win the game or lose it by one run.


Totals are bets on whether the final combined score of a game will be over or under a line set by sportsbooks. The odds are usually close to even on both sides of this bet.

If the UK vs. Louisville game has a total set at 5.5 runs, the over wins if the teams combine to score six or more, and the under wins on five or fewer total runs.

How to bet on college baseball futures

You can bet on any team to win the College World Series all year long in futures markets. You book these bets at the currently posted odds, locking in the odds when you place your bet, no matter how much they change throughout the season.

The best odds on the favorites are available in the offseason and early season. These odds will shrink significantly once the College World Series is set.

Are there F5 Innings bets in college baseball?

In theory, sportsbooks should allow you to place First Five Innings bets on NCAA baseball. After all, this college baseball bet type—which is essentially a moneyline bet concerning only the first five innings of the game—is popular for MLB games.

In reality, the limited action on college baseball means sportsbooks aren’t dedicating the resources required to set college baseball First Five Innings lines. If any sportsbook does offer First Five Innings betting in the future, it will likely surround College World Series games.

Betting on the College World Series

The College World Series is the NCAA men’s baseball championship finals. It’s held every June in Omaha, Nebraska, with the top eight teams coming out of the 64-team NCAA Division I Baseball Championship tournament. The teams get split into two, four-team brackets where they play one another until a bracket winner emerges. These bracket winners face off in a best-of-three championship series to decide the National Championship.

You can bet on moneylines, run lines and totals for every game in the College World Series and NCAA Division I Baseball Championship tournament. Plus, College World Series futures are available all year long.

Public betting on college baseball

Look around and you might find one sportsbook has a different line than the others for the same college baseball game.

Why is that? Well, the goal of every sportsbook is to take in even amounts of money on both sides of every bet. That way, they can earn from the small profit margin built into the odds instead of worrying about which side wins or loses. When a sportsbook sees lopsided money coming in on one side of a bet, they might move that line or change those odds to try to get the betting back to even.

The cause of the discrepancy might be the majority of the betting public liking one side, or even just one or two big bets on that team. Either way, you can take advantage of the movement. Oddsmakers are stunningly accurate when they set college baseball betting lines, and you can bank on that fact by betting after a line has moved.

You’ll either get a better price or improved odds when betting on what oddsmakers first said would happen. This is called “betting against the public” because you are betting against the action that forced the sportsbook to move the line. Unfortunately, the limited amount of action college baseball draws at most sportsbooks means these opportunities are quite rare.
