MLB props: Just say 'Yes' to a run in the first inning

We are an impatient society. A quick resolution works well in a lot of areas, including the betting market. As prop betting has increased in both supply and demand, sportsbooks have found ways to set lines that offer instant gratification.

Wagers such as “First to 10,” “No Score in the first 6:30” and “Goal in the first 10 minutes,” to name a few, are popular because they don’t require following an entire game. The bet is resolved quickly and everybody is able to move on.

These types of bets are good for both the bettor and the book. 

The bettor can make a bet, have it graded and move on to the next thing. They are simple, straightforward wagers that require as deep of a handicap as one wants to complete. 

They are good for the book because winnings are likely to be reinvested and losses end the action for bettors, who will often move on to something new.
