Betting on the MLB World Series in New Jersey has become a lot more interesting.

In fact, leading sports betting software developer Kambi, which powers the DraftKings Sportsbook, SugarHouse Sportsbook, and 888 Sport online and mobile sports betting operations in NJ, has launched an extensive range of pre-game and in-play betting opportunities for MLB’s championship series.

Baseball’s 2018 World Series began on Tuesday with Boston Red Sox beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 in Game 1.

However, Kambi-powered operators have already begun offering access to the company’s wide range of relevant game and player-related markets. These include batter-by-batter and pitch-by-pitch markets throughout every 2018 World Series game.

That means gamblers on Kambi-powered operators are already wagering on in-game markets that include the result of the next pitch and whether a batter will strike out the next time he’s up to bat.

Additionally, the in-game markets extend to batter and pitcher performances from both teams in every single inning throughout the series.

Plus, Kambi-powered operators are offering unique pre-game offers on player over/under run and hit lines, and a wide range of stolen base and head-to-head markets.

Every single World Series betting option

According to Kambi, DraftKings Sportsbook, SugarHouse Sportsbook, and 888 Sport will be offering a wagering opportunity on every single betting angle throughout the entire World Series.

Moreover, Kambi Head of In-Game Simon Noy said gamblers enjoyed its wide range of MLB betting options throughout the season. Now, the plan is to offer even more throughout the World Series:

“It’s been great to see the popularity of Kambi’s fast betting options during this season’s MLB, including each visit to the plate. Therefore, we are excited to add a number of new pitch-by-pitch markets in time for the World Series, as well as an extended range of player props to complement our already extensive offer.”

Dodgers versus Red Sox

The Dodgers didn’t win Game 1. However, third baseman Justin Turner went three-for-five and scored a run. It’s a stat line that made gamblers who bet on him in the in-game markets happy.

Sports better who backed Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi in the in-game markets made out as well. In fact, he went four-for-five with an RBI and three runs scored.

Game 2 of the series will go off  Wednesday night. Similar pre-game and in-game markets will be available through Kambi-powered online and mobile NJ sports betting operators throughout.
