Odds To Win The MLB 2015 World Series + Best Bets

Last year’s opening 3 wagers for the World Series netted us an eventual winner. I plunked almost $14 down on a 25/1 bet for the Giants (and failed with Rangers and Rays bets). Throughout the year, I was able to secure odds of 50/1 and 80/1 for the Royals during down times, and then hedged those bets in the playoffs. It was a thousand dollar profit year for the selections.
In the next few weeks I will finalize the Over/Under Best bets that I put down yesterday. Again, last season I was 3 out of 3 for top Over/Under picks, and will likely pick the same 3 teams (KC and WSH over their opening regular season wins of 81.5 and 93.5, while I picked SD under 84.5) out of the 10 total wagers I go for this campaign).
But this article is about the Fall Classic Winner in 2015.
The bets I hammered down today (courtesy of http://www.bet365.com)
1. Washington Nationals $100 on +550 Pays a profit of $550 if the Nats come through with the title. One of these years, the foregone favorite will actually win the World Series – unlike last year’s bizarro playoffs, where the underdog won all rounds of the postseason. The addition of Max Scherzer is the ultimate lock down for this to happen.
I love the DC squad playing in the NL East. I am not sold on the Mets and Marlins, both have aces coming back from Tommy John Surgeries, and the Braves have a popgun offense. The Nats will also speedbag the Phillies all year.
2. Detroit Tigers $50 on a +1200 wager: Any team with David Price anchoring the starter staff has a great chance for a regular season. Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez will find a way to nurse through the regular season, and I am waiting for Yoenis Cespedes to impose his will on the MLB during a contract season.
This is the highest value they ever have had during the preseason in years.
3. Seattle Mariners – $35 bet on a +1500 risk that pays a $525 profit. I am predicting a Nationals and Mariners World Series, so naturally I love the M’s at +1500.
T4. Baltimore and Toronto – Both $30 picks for 20/1 odds. Both AL East clubs will net a +570 profit. I have cornered 4 AL teams to flood the market, meaning I will be cheering for the Nationals to win the National League Pennant, but will likely have a few clubs here that will be in the Playoffs, otherwise it will be a disaster anyway.
Worst Odds Value (Stay Clear)
1. LA Angels +1000. I think a serious regression is in order. I think they will contend for a Wild Card Spot, but with Seattle in the AL West, I believe they should be the favorite.
2. SD Padres +2000. They have no business being up with the Orioles and the Jays for the odds. They will take too long to gel as a unit.
3. Chicago cubs +2000. See #2 on the Worst odds. I think they have a better chance to have a winning record than the Padres though.
4. KC Royals +1800. For a team that most website have an OVER/UNDER with of 81.5 (same as the Yankees and Oakland), they are the ones with the least amount of value here. Not saying they won’t contend for the playoffs, because I believe all day, they are an 84 – 86 win team this year, just hate the value they currently have. If they struggle early, that is when I will bet them again like last year (when the odd rises).
5. Boston Red Sox +1400. This gambling website did a great job of odds here, this is just the 5th worst value that is all. It actually makes sense because they have listed all 6 Divisions in the top 6 favorites, of which I believe the Red Sox also have the toughest path to win. I wouldn’t place any money on these guys, with that odd still though.
