MLB Live TV, Online Coverage, Schedule & Odds May 2016

The MLB live TV schedule continues as the calendar flips to May. With many day games on the horizon, live TV and online coverage will heat up in May as teams prepare for the long stretch of summer that lies ahead. So far, April has belonged to the city of Chicago as the Cubs and White Sox have both gotten off to great starts.

The Cubbies were the preseason favorites to win the 2016 World Series, and while one month doesn’t make a season, so far they have lived up to the hype. At 17-6, Chicago is the top team in National League and with a pitching staff that has been lights out, the Cubs are hoping to end one of the longest droughts in sports history this fall.

Not to be out done by the in-state rival, the south-side is also jumping so far this season as the White Sox are off to their best start in over a decade. As of May 2, the White Sox lead all of the majors with 18 wins, and at 18-8 on the season, they have a 3 game lead on the Tigers in the AL Central.

Once again, it is early in the season, but as of right hear and right now, Chicago is on top of the baseball world.

TV coverage will be provided by several outlets for games in May, including ESPN, ESPN2, MLB Network, FOX and FOX Sports1. You can also follow the action live online through Watch ESPN, MLB.com and the FOX Sports Go app. As always be sure to check your local listings for the coverage in your area.
