How to bet Opening Day: White Sox-Angels originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

How to bet MLB Opening Day?

PointsBet will release odds for the White Sox game closer to game day and will release odds in three categories: The spread (how many runs a team is expected to win or lose by), the total runs scored in a game and the moneyline, which is betting on a team to win the game straight up.

But there is an even better PointsBet game for White Sox Opening Day.
