Betting on the North Carolina Tar Heels baseball team
The UNC Tar Heels NCAA baseball team is a beloved North Carolina team that draws in fans and bettors alike. If you’re interested in betting on Tar Heels games, many college baseball betting options are available at North Carolina’s online sportsbooks.
Here’s a look at three common bet types when betting on UNC Tar Heels baseball:
Tar Heels moneyline bet
The moneyline bet involves picking which team you think will win. At many North Carolina sportsbooks, you can find competitive moneyline odds for UNC Tar Heels baseball. Negative odds indicate the favorite to win the game, while positive odds indicate the underdog.
If you want to place a UNC moneyline bet, consider an example game between the Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils. An example of moneyline odds at Caesars Sportsbook or BetMGM Sportsbook might look like this:
|UNC Tar Heels||-150|
|Duke Blue Devils||+130|
The negative odds indicate that UNC Tar Heels are the favorites to win the game, and bettors must bet $150 to win $100 in profit. If you bet $150 on the Tar Heels and they win, you would receive a total payout of $250 ($150 in winnings plus your original stake).
On the other hand, if you bet on the underdog Duke Blue Devils and they win, you would win $130 in profit for every $100 bet. A $100 winning bet on the Blue Devils would pay out $230 ($130 in winnings plus your original stake).
Tar Heels run line bet
More experienced bettors may find value in run line bets, which are essentially baseball’s point spread bets. They tend to even the playing field by adding a point margin which the favorite must overcome to win spread bets. Odds for both sides are set at a certain value, which means you need to wager a certain amount to win a certain amount in profit.
Consider an example game between the UNC Tar Heels and the Virginia Cavaliers if you’re interested in placing a UNC run line bet. If the odds are listed as follows:
|UNC Tar Heels||-1.5 (-110)|
|Virginia Cavaliers||+1.5 (-110)|
The negative odds for the Tar Heels indicate that they are the favorite to win the game, and bettors must bet $110 to win $100 in profit. If you bet on the Tar Heels and they win by two or more runs, you would win $100 in profit for every $110 bet.
Conversely, if you bet on the underdog Virginia Cavaliers, they would need to either win the game outright or lose by one run for your bet to be successful. If the Cavaliers lose by only one run, you will win $100 in profit for every $110 bet.
UNC Tar Heels totals
Over/under, or totals, bets mean wagering on the total number of runs scored in a game. North Carolina sportsbooks offer totals bets with different lines and betting odds.
Here’s an example of what a totals bet could look like:
In this example, you can bet on whether the total number of runs scored in the game will be over or under 8.5 runs. The odds for both sides are set at -110, which means you need to wager $110 to win $100 in profit.
If you think the game will be a high-scoring one and bet on the over 8.5 runs and the game ends with a score of 6-4, you would win the bet as the total number of runs scored in the game is 10, which is over 8.5 runs. If you bet $110 on the over, you would receive a total payout of $210 ($110 in winnings plus your original stake).
On the other hand, if you believe the game will be a low-scoring one and bet on the under 8.5 runs, and the game ends with a score of 4-3, you would win the bet as the total number of runs scored in the game is 7, which is under 8.5 runs. A $110 winning bet on the under would pay out $210 in total.
