Odds To Win The 2013 MLB World Series, Plus Odds To Win The NLCS + ALCS Matchups

Its funny how one Anibal Sanchez Start can sway your opinion.  While I am still picking Boston to win the ALCS, you should wait til after Game #3 to see if Verlander wins, then you can bet some money on the Red Sox to win the ALCS, when they are underdogs.  Right now, they are both about even.  Both of the Tigers and Red Sox are +240 to win the World Series.

Wainwright has been money in the bank since the club acquired him. He is 99 - 57 (.635) with a 3.11 ERA.  Wainwright will be considered for another NL Cy Young, which will likely mean a top 5 vote for the 3rd time in 4 years.  The RHP has led the NL in wins 2x (2009 and 2013).  He also has a  4 - 0 mark in PostSeason - with a 2.03 ERA in time as a Closer - and as a Starting Pitcher.

MLB Reports Picks Verlander

Series Tied 1 – 1

About chuckbooth3023

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 . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
