Baseball Fantasy Betting

Sometimes bettors want a break from traditional wagers — whether it’s through their favorite online or Las Vegas sportsbook. What better way than to jump into the fantasy sports wagering world? In many instances, it may require more work in terms of research on teams and even on specific players. Who’s on a hot streak? Which player is in the midst of an ongoing slump? Who is on the waiver wire that is worth putting in a claim on? These are some of the things you’ll need to consider when participating in fantasy sports, specifically fantasy baseball. [+]

This kind of research is invaluable to your traditional sports betting too, so it’s a win-win. If you’re looking for a change but don’t know where to start, there are several online fantasy sports websites to choose from that will meet all your wagering needs.

One of those leading websites is DraftKings.com — a fantasy sports company that allows bettors to play in one-day competitions to make quick cash.

Looking for something a little more long term? DraftKings has you covered there too as the website has the option to set up a free league and invite friends. The leagues continue as long as you want on a daily or weekly basis. DraftKings’ format allows bettors to avoid the injury bug or draft day busts.

FanDuel.com — another leading online fantasy sports website — offers similar features that DraftKings does.

Not close to a computer to set your lineup? No problem. Both FanDuel and DraftKings have apps that keep you in the game regardless where you may be.

If you’re looking for long-term commitment, there are other websites such as Yahoo, FanTrax and ESPN that provide fantasy services, allowing bettors to create their own leagues and invite friends. 

Fantasy Baseball Tips

Now that you’re apprised with some of the leading fantasy sports websites out there, you’re ready to sign up and start playing. DraftKings has paid out a total of $3 billion since its inception, so you know there are big bucks to be had if you put in the time and research.

There are many strategies you can take in an MLB fantasy draft. If you have an early pick in the first round, it’ll be hard to pass up on Los Angeles Angels star and two-time American League MVP Mike Trout. He’s the complete package. Trout’s a home run hitter, an RBI machine and can even steal bases. He hits for average and his on-base percentage makes him one of the most valuable commodities in fantasy baseball.

In salary cap leagues, a player like Trout will cost a huge price, so managing the rest of your money to make sure you can field a competitive team is paramount.

As far as pitchers go, there aren’t many better than Los Angeles Dodgers ace and Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw. When healthy, Kershaw is the best in the Big Leagues and he proved that in 2014 when the lefty went 21-3, making many fantasy owners out there very happy in he process.

Fantasy Baseball Tools

Being active is key when taking part in any fantasy league. Drafting a team and leaving your lineup unchanged for the entire season will result in a poor finish. Fantasy sports requires daily activity from setting your lineup to scouring the waiver wire — hopefully picking up a hidden gem or a young prospect that will rocket your team to the top.

Fantasy sports wagering is not for everyone, especially traditional bettors who believe the best way to make money is through moneyline, point spread or prop bets. But more and more of the traditionalist bettors are making the leap to fantasy sports, and for good reason.

Are you ready to make the jump to fantasy sports betting? With the right research and commitment, you’ll head in the right direction.
