The Red Sox have been on fire in the 2000s since ending “The Curse of the Bambino” in 2004, when they won their first World Series title in 86 years. Since then, Boston won three more World Series titles in 2007, 2013 and 2018.

In 2021, the Sox surprised many by winning 92 games and securing a wild card berth in the playoffs. They made it all the way to the ALCS, where they were up 2-1 on the Houston Astros before falling in three straight to end their season. With a scrappy crop of players on their roster that proved their worth last season, Boston is looking to capitalize and bring another Commissioner's Trophy to Fenway.

Betting on the Boston Red Sox

Red Sox Spread (Run Line)

When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.

The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.

Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Red Sox game:

  • Miami Marlins (+1.5)
  • Boston Red Sox (-1.5)

As shown above, the Red Sox are favored by 1.5 runs against the Marlins; the minus sign (-) indicates Boston is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Boston here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Red Sox would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Marlins +1.5 would win if Miami won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.

The Red Sox were 84-78 on run lines in 2021, covering 51.9 percent of the time – putting them in the top half of the league.

Red Sox Moneylines

Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.

Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:

  • Miami Marlins +150
  • Boston Red Sox-180

Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Red Sox, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Marlins would net $150 if they pulled the upset.

The Red Sox went 92-70 in 2021, putting them in second place in the AL East and tied for the seventh best record in the league.

Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.

Red Sox Over/Unders

Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.

If the number for our hypothetical Red Sox-Marlins matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.

Red Sox totals in 2021 were in the bottom third of the league when betting the over, hitting at a 74-85-3 clip.

Red Sox Props

Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Rafael Devers over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Chris Sale will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.

Red Sox Futures

Expectations are high right now in Boston after 2021, so bettors still have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Red Sox futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Red Sox to win the AL East, win the American League Pennant, win the World Series, or even individual awards like winning league MVP.

How to Bet on the Boston Red Sox

MA lawmakers have yet to come to an agreement on budgeting and the legality of college sports wagering, which is standing in the way of the legalization of Massachusetts sports betting. Discussions on the fine print of HB 3977 will be ongoing until further notice. MA residents can expect legalized sports betting by late 2022 or early 2023.

Massachusetts residents will soon have the option to travel to Maine to place their bets on the Red Sox. Maine sports betting was legalized on April 19, 2022, after Gov. Janet Mills passed LD 585 almost two weeks after the State Senate approved the bill. Sports betting is expected to launch in the Pine Tree State by Aug. 2022, a month before the end of the MLB season.
