First 5 Innings Pick Today

  • Giants Moneyline vs. Astros (-120)

At -130 or better, I’m betting the San Francisco Giants will grab an early lead against the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

Right-hander Logan Webb (5-5, 2.92 ERA) will get the start, as he continues to lead the way for an injured San Francisco rotation. He’s allowed two earned runs or fewer in five of his previous six starts, with the lone exception being a New York Yankees lineup teeing off on everyone.

More importantly, the Giants will face Houston left-hander Framber Valdez (5-3, 3.53 ERA) in this matchup. They rank eighth in the league with an wRC+ of 114 against southpaws this season.

THE BAT X gives the Giants a 58.7% chance of leading after the first five innings, making a fair price for this ticket closer to -140.

What’s the First 5 Innings Bet?

First 5 Innings odds (aka F5 Innings) are baseball’s version of first-half odds. You’re betting on only the first five innings of an MLB game, meaning the bet will be settled — at the latest — after the completion of the fifth inning.

Here’s an example for a Chicago Cubs-Philadelphia Phillies game:

If you bet $10 on the Cubs F5 Innings run line of +0.5 (-140), you’re betting the Cubs will be tied or winning after five innings. If the bet hits, you’ll receive $17.14 (including stake).

First 5 Innings run line (aka spread), over/under total, and moneyline are available for each MLB game.

How Does the First 5 Innings Moneyline Work?

Which team will be leading after five innings?

Here’s an example for a New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game:

If you bet $10 on the Yankees’ F5 Innings moneyline of -120, you’re betting the Yankees will be leading after five innings. If the bets hits, you’ll receive $18.33 (including stake).

What Does +0.5 Mean for First 5 Innings Betting?

When you bet a +0.5 F5 run line, you’re betting that team will be tied or leading after five innings.

Here’s an example for a Kansas City Royals-Cleveland Guardians game:

If you bet $10 on the Royals’ F5 Innings run line of +0.5 (-130), you’re betting the Royals will be tied or leading after five innings. If the bet hits, you’ll receive $17.69 (including stake).
