It is no longer April. What chance does a team have to make the playoffs if they are in first place on May 1? the last 10 seasons suggests it is about 50/50.

That and more on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Tim Hudson, Allen Craig, Hank Conger, Jesse Chavez, Edwin Encarnacion and Carlos Gomez all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

Odds To Win The 2014 MLB World Series – Updated For Week 5

Kansas City is the latest best bet on the board.  I have fared well picking good weeks recently for the Reds and Rockies, so lets see if we can keep this up.  The Royals are 14 - 12 - and 1.5 GB the Tigers heading into play today.  At +3500, there is value.

Kansas City is the latest best bet on the board for bang for the buck. I have fared well picking good weeks recently for the Tigers, Reds and Rockies, so lets see if we can keep this up. The Royals are 14 – 12 – and 1.5 GB the Tigers heading into play today. At +3500 to win the Fall Classic, there is value there.

Last Weeks best bet on the board that we slated was the Colorado Rockies at +6600.  With a strong week, and 5 HRs in the last week plus, Troy Tulowitzki has elevated the Rox to near the top of the NL West.

This week, they jumped all the way to +3500, marking the second time in as many weeks, our best bet almost cut their odd in half. We also said the Yankees were a good play at +1600, and they vaulted up to +1200 again,

The Royals have gone 5 – 5 in their last 10 games, and have receded from +3300 – +3500, however this will be one of my top plays this week.  These guys are 14 – 12 now, and haven’t even played to potential.

My #4 and #5 picks for best bets had struggles this week.  Texas went from +1600 – +1800, which isn’t a massive fall, and the Reds went from +4000 – +5000.  Again, I question the logic of placing these guys so far back. Read the rest of this entry
