It is the oldest professional sports league in the United States and Canada – and has long been dubbed “America’s Pastime”. From a bettor’s perspective, with 30 teams playing 162 regular season games (that’s a huge 2,430 games in total if you were wondering), there is never a shortage of opportunities for baseball betting online, which makes it popular among experienced and novice gamblers alike.
