MLB F5 Bets Can Make Your Season


If you have never partaken of an MLB F5 bet, you are missing out on a market that can make your pockets jingle. The MLB F5 bet is the equivalent of NFL and NBA first half bets. Just like those markets, the MLB F5 market offers just about every wager that is available for a full game.

MLB bettors should consider making MLB F5 bets.

For example, you can bet the MLB F5 moneyline, run line, and total. These MLB F5 bets are graded once the bottom half of the fifth inning is complete. The outcome of the game doesn’t matter. It’s only what happens in the first five innings. Betting the MLB F5 makes a ton of sense if you understand baseball. Read on to see what we’re talking about.

Starting Pitchers & MLB F5 Innings

Blake Snell won the 2023 NL Cy Young award last season. He had a very impressive second half of the season and finished 14-9 with a 2.25 ERA. If you look a little deeper at his stats, you’ll notice that Snell only pitched 180 innings across 32 starts last year. That comes out to a little over 5.0 innings per start.

Unlike the MLB days of yore, starting pitchers rarely go deep in games anymore. San Francisco’s Logan Webb led the majors in innings pitched last year with 216. That means Webb, on average, pitched a full six innings and part of the seventh. That is rare.

Blake Snell pitched 180 innings last season in 32 starts.

The best starting pitchers will usually always hit the five inning mark. That’s why MLB F5 bets are all about pitching. Smart bettors – and the elite MLB handicappers here at Sports Hub – will break down pitching matchups to get a clear view of any potential MLB F5 wagers.

Examples of MLB F5 Bets

Let’s say you have an ace pitcher like Corbin Burnes of the Baltimore Orioles. He will pitch today for the O’s against Kansas City. Burnes is a perennial Cy Young contender with a career 3.25 ERA. He’s pretty good.

Now, it’s early in the 2024 season, but the Royals are off to a 2-3 start. If not for an 11-0 win over the Twins, Kansas City would be nowhere near averaging four runs per game. Historically, the Royals finished 23rd, 24th, and 24th in scoring over the last three MLB seasons.

So, Burnes versus the Royals lineup. You can bet the Orioles at -172 for the game or you can back Baltimore and Burnes on an MLB F5 bet at -165. If Baltimore is ahead of Kansas City after the first five innings, you win the bet.

Today’s Kansas City-Baltimore F5 bets

One cool thing with MLB F5 bets is that you can bet on a three-way moneyline. Since the game isn’t over after five innings, your MLB F5 bet could be on a tie after five innings. In today’s case, you can get Baltimore to win the MLB F5 at -115, Kansas City at +188, and the tie at +415.

It’s also possible to make an MLB F5 bet on the total. Again, the wager only counts the first five innings of the game. Today, you can wager on the MLB F5 Over 3.5 at -120 or the Under 3.5 at +100. 

As I said at the beginning of today’s Daily Report, if you haven’t considered MLB F5 bets you might want to start. There are some great opportunities out there.

Sas Insider rules the Sports Hub leaderboards.

Sas Insider is not the only SportsHub handicapper that has been tearing it up recently. Guys like Seth Cohen and James Acker have been models of consistency as well.

Let’s see how our cappers did yesterday.

  • The sweeper: As mentioned, Sas Insider is just killing it. Point spread, moneyline, props, MLB F5 bets, you name it. Yesterday, the Insider went 16-9 and added $700 to the bankroll. That puts Sas Insider up $1364 for the week, $2189 for the last 14 days, and a remarkable $4357 for the last 30.
  • Call me Al: Al Grant put in four picks yesterday and if you followed them, you won $400. Over the last three days, Al is now 7-2 with all of his picks.
  • Plus-money MLB: Three of our Sports Hub exclusive handicappers each went 2-0 yesterday. They were separated in winnings by their baseball performance. Kyle Parker ended up third on the board with $243 in profits thanks to the Blue Jays upset of the Astros. Neal Harris also had Toronto, but at +136. Neal totaled $236 and Evan Lewis won $220 by picking the St. Louis Cardinals (+120) over the San Diego Padres.

Harper Plays Dinger Derby with the Reds

Philadelphia’s Bryce Harper had himself a day yesterday. He hadn’t had a hit all season until yesterday. Read below to see how he finished. 

Harper wasn’t the only Philadelphia athlete to make his presence known last night. The Philadelphia 76ers welcomed their big man, Joel Embiid, back into the lineup. It seems like it was just in time too.

Here’s what’s trending right now.

  • Harper rips dingers: Philadelphia’s Bryce Harper got his first three hits of 2024. All three were home runs in the Phillies’ 9-4 win over Cincinnati. Harper finished the game 3-for-6 with the three homers and six RBIs. If you had the Phillies on the MLB F5 runline, you would have been a winner thanks to Harper. 
  • Embiid back, Sixers win: Philly’s Joel Embiid returned to the court eight weeks after undergoing a procedure to repair the meniscus in his left knee. It was a solid return. Embiid scored 24 points, had six rebounds, dished out seven assists, and managed three steals as the Sixers beat Oklahoma City 109-105.
  • NIT points explosion: “Cream Abdul-Jabbar” didn’t disappoint last night. Indiana State beat Utah 100-90 in an NIT semifinal last night. Robbie Avila, owner of that nickname, had 26 points and 10 rebounds for the Sycamores. Teammate Ryan Conwell actually led ISU with 27 points. Indiana State will face Seton Hall for the NIT title on Thursday night.
  • KC voters reject tax proposal: The voters in Jackson County, Missouri, said no to a tax proposal that would have funded a new ballpark for the Royals and major renovations to the Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium. Royals’ brass has said the team will not play at Kauffman Stadium past 2030. If something can’t be worked out, would Kansas City lose its MLB franchise?
  • Elite big matchup: The NBA has gone old-school. Last night, Denver defeated San Antonio 110-105 as two-time league MVP Nikola Jokic got the best of rookie sensation Victor Wembenyana. Jokic scored 42 points and pulled down 16 rebounds. Wembenyana almost pulled off the quadruple-double. He finished with 23 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists, and nine blocked shots.
