Current Odds To Win Each MLB Division 2014

 This club often reminds me of an aging heavyweight fighter.  You may beat on them for a time, but there is always that chance the team will land a haymaker on you.  2007 was one of their days in the sunshine.  2014 may see them at least make the postseason again.  With a 20 - 1 odd for the club, the value is there for a longshot pick.

The season is upon us this weekend for real.

The LA Dodgers have a chance to do some serious damage with the North America Opener versus the San Diego Padres, as part of a 3 game series.

If they win 2 out of 3 in that set, this will go a long way in burying the San Diego team early.

In the NL West, since LA is 2 – 0 already, the Rockies are now paying 20 – 1 odds to win the Division.

While I am not saying this will happen, the value is there.

Also I can’t believe how the injuries have not effected the odds on the Tigers.

Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain, Billy Butler are part of a young core of talent that could really all flourish at the same time.  The franchise had added Veteran  Starting Pitching this year and look as strong as ever to end the 28 year Playoff Drought.  The management and ownership has spent more money than any Royals team in club history.  The will probably battle with the Detroit Tigers all season long for the AL Central Division

The franchise had added Starting Pitching this year and look as strong as ever to end the 28 year Playoff Drought. The management and ownership have spent more money than any Royals team in club history. The will probably battle with the Detroit Tigers all season long for the AL Central Division.  With a hungry young squad, and an ailing Detroit team, several prognosticators have picked KC to upset the 3 time reigning AL Central Champs.  At +450 for this achievement, this is good bang for the buck on a bet.

Bruce Rondon, Jose Iglesias and Andy Dirks are not household names, however they help weaken the club for the 1st part of the year.

Kansas City at +450 is a nice odd. Look for Yordano Ventura, and Danny Duffy to give the team a bunch of flame throwing chuckers that could catch an injured Tigers club off guard this season.

When you factor in the White Sox, Twins and Indians could have sub-par years, the Royals may be able to get fat on the other clubs.

The Angels have been given a consistent odd of +200 to win the AL West, and are tied with the A’s for the mark.

The Rangers are the Divisional leaders are +175 for the title.

Texas is starting Tanner Scheppers in their opener.  Stay away from wagering on the Division

Tampa Bay at +250 is still a good team to throw some sheckles down on.

Milwaukee is only a few years removed from an NLCS appearance - and will have Ryan Braun back for a full year.  Their 1st four starters could all win 10 - 15 games, the OF could club 75 HRs and steal as many bases, and they have strong offensive players in the Infield that could breakout.  A +1500 odd is considerably decent for this longshot club.

A +1500 odd is considerably decent for this longshot club.  The problem with the team may lie within the Bullpen, which has to be a worry.  I just don’t see the value in picking St. Louis.  Throw in Aramis Ramirez having a 2012 like year, and the ‘Brew Crew” may surprise.

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker
