Reading Time: 4 minutes read

It is nearly here. Major League Baseball 2021 season will start on Thursday, April 1, 2021, with all 30 teams playing the opening game on the same day for the first time since 1968. The betting options for the 15 games in a single day will be an exciting experience for our bettors in this MLB productive opening day.

Spectators will be able to attend the regular-season games. However, seating will be restricted and the public will have to wear masks and be seated in separate groups of seats while keeping a safety distance.

In the 2021 season, the championship will consist of 162 games and will keep some of the rules implemented in the atypical 2020 campaign that was reduced to only 60 games as part of the adaptations and modifications that had to be made due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Los Angeles Dodgers were the champions of the 2020 MLB World Series, 32 years after their last time in 1988. 

February 17 was the official start of Spring Training where the teams’ pitchers and catchers held their first official practices. The position players started working with their teams on Monday 22 February.
