Preparation is everything when it comes to Major League Baseball betting. With a grueling 162-game regular season, bettors are often turned off by the thought of having to keep track of each team before putting their money down on a daily basis. We’re here to help with the MLB Calendar — a downloadable calendar for bettors to use throughout the season. Downloading the MLB Calendar is easy. Simply click the link provided, save it to your computer desktop or handheld device.
From there bettors will have the luxury of circling key dates, from the opening pitch in April to the final out in September.
MLB Schedule 2017
The defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs will have a tough challenge right from the start of the 2017 campaign. The Cubs open the season on the road with a nationally televised game against the St. Louis Cardinals beginning on April 2 — the first of a three-match series.
The first two games of the series will be a pitching duel as Jon Lester and Carlos Martinez do battle to kick things off. All-stars Jake Arrieta and Adam Wainwright will take the mound in Game 2. This is a series bettors will be racing to their favorite sportsbooks to put money on, especially considering the Cubbies return as the +450 favorites to repeat as World Series champions.
The Boston Red Sox are the frontrunners to reach the World Series from the American League. The Red Sox — also +450 World Series favorites — kick off their 2017 campaign with an inner-league matchup against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Twenty-game winner Rick Porcello will take the mound on April 3.
In a potential World Series preview, the Red Sox and Cubs will clash in a three-game set at Fenway Park on April 28, 29 and 30. The series finale will be a nationally televised game.
Planning and research is key in baseball betting. For all the action, be sure to download the MLB Calendar to stay ahead of the competition.
