How to read MLB Vegas First-Five Innings Odds

Playing first-five inning lines is similar to playing a full game, but it’s exactly how it sounds – you cash a ticket after the first five innings by picking either the favorite or the underdog. Some bettors enjoy these wagers more than your standard full-game bets, as the result is mostly dictated by the starting pitchers, as opposed to the games getting into the later innings with your result being at the mercy of the respective bullpens.

Similar to our Run-line and Moneyline, every game on the board shows with pitcher information, as well the Date and Time of the Major League Baseball games of the evening.

In baseball, the Favorites and Underdogs are listed for that day’s games. The First-Five Inning Odds will show the favorite listed with a (-), and the underdogs will be denoted by a (+) symbol. Most online wagering sites, as well as all betting apps and offshore sites, will do the math for you. But it’s a rather simple equation.

L.A. Dodgers -120 (Bet $100 to win $83.30)
St. Louis +100 (Bet $100 to win $100)

In the above example, L.A. Dodgers is listed as the favorite (-), while St. Louis is considered the underdog (+). If you’re making a bet on the Dodgers, favored to be leading after five innings, they would return only $83.30 on a $100 wager at minus-120. Some sportsbooks will also offer fractional odds, and in this particular situation the Dodgers would be a 5/6 favorite. The decimal format is also sometimes listed, especially popular overseas, and the Dodgers would be listed as 1.833 on the board.

Since the Dodgers are the favorite, the Cardinals are considered the underdog. Bettors receive a larger return on their initial stake. In the example above, a $100 winning wager on the Cardinals would return a $200 total, which includes a $100 win and your original $100 stake. The fractional odds for this example would be 1/1, with the Cardinals listed at 1.00 with the decimal conversion.

How to First-Five Inning Over-Under Odds

Again, like a full nine-inning game, you’ll be betting the total amount of runs between both teams.

Washington vs. Philadelphia 5 o-10

In the above example, you would bet on the total either going over five runs or under five runs. If the total number of runs after five innings equals five between the two teams, it would be a push. If you were to select the over, and the total number of runs on the board would be six or more, you would win a total of $200, which includes your $100 win and your original $100 stake. If you selected the under, and the total went had four or fewer runs on the board, you would win a total of $200, which includes your $100 win and your original $100 stake. Exactly five runs would result in a push, and you would get your $100 stake back.
