And what better time to get some juicy odds than the MLB postseason?
The Major League Baseball playoffs kick off on Tuesday with the AL Wild Card and NL Wild Card games.
Are you a baseball wagering enthusiast? Or maybe a complete newbie to the world of MLB betting? Either way, with the Caesars Super Boost, you can sit back and enjoy some killer ROI over the long run.
Caesars Super Boost for MLB playoffs
The MLB playoffs kick off on Tuesday with the Boston Red Sox visiting the New York Yankees in the AL Wild Card Game (8:08 p.m., ESPN). The NL Wild Card game then takes place on Tuesday (8:10 p.m., TNT) between the St. Louis Cardinals and visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.
Each one-game Wild Card series presents a lose-and-you’re-done or win-and-you’re-in scenario.
Those winners then advance to the best-of-five Divisional Series (Oct. 7-14). The best-of-seven League Championship Series (Oct. 15-24) and best-of-seven World Series (Oct. 26-Nov. 3) then follow.
So, despite the regular season being over, dozens of games remain in the 2021 MLB postseason schedule. As a result, Virginia sportsbooks are offering all kinds of betting opportunities with all manner of promos.
One of our favorites is the Caesars Super Boost. We’ve previously discussed the daily odds boost, but it’s worth repeating as we approach the MLB postseason.
Each day, Caesars in VA offers one bet as the official Caesars Super Boost. This special betting market offers significantly boosted odds for a specific wager that day. It’s usually a moneyline option, but other wagers, including prop bets, are occasionally offered.
Although each Caesars Super Boost is limited to a $25 max wager, there’s still immense value.
After all, consider the next two Caesars Super Boosts. As of Tuesday afternoon, the Red Sox were +115 underdogs, and the Dodgers were -216 favorites at Caesars. However, because of the boosts, you can get the Red Sox at +175 odds and the Dodgers at +100 odds.
How big are Caesars boosts?
So, what does an improvement of +115 odds to +175, as well as -216 to +100, mean for your bottom line?
Quite a bit, actually.
Let’s assume each wager wins and that you do the max bet of $25. In the case of the Red Sox, your profit would increase from $28.75 to $43.75 (an improvement of 52.2%). For the Yankees, your potential profit jumps from $11.57 to $25 (up 116.1%).
As you can see, these are not insignificant gains. (Of course, Caesars officials know this, and that’s why wagers are capped at $25 each.)
More often than not, officials will take a modest favorite (say, -125 to -200) and offer it at +100 odds for the Caasars Super Boost. And sure, you won’t win every one of those bets. But because of the added value each boost adds for a player, you should come out ahead even if you’re making your picks with the flip of a coin.
Additionally, officials usually save the daily Caesars Super Boost for that day’s biggest game or event. And with MLB garnering much betting interest this time of the year, MLB playoff games will likely be a regular offering in the weeks ahead.
