Odds To Win The 2016 MLB World Series

The Cubs signed Jason Heyward over the last week - and may have dealt a massive blow to the rest of the National League that could be felt for several years.  Despite the signing, the odds for Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles Dodgers did not change.  This is not what is supposed to happen when a player like Heyward signs.  The +800 odd is a absolutely bang on though.  I would not put any money down for the value, however they would be my pick to win the World Series if I picked any one team right now for next year's Fall Classic.

The ripple effect of the Johnny Cueto‘s signing did not hit the odds very much for the Giants.  San Fran went from +1800 to only +1600 in one week.  The Dodgers also did not lose any ground – standing firm at +1200??

This is crazy. I am not saying the Dodgers value at +1200 isn’t actually right.  What I am saying is that the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series Champs should be right there with them.  At least at +1300 – or even more favored than the 2nd place Arizona Diamondbacks.

San Francisco has the best Starting Pitching and Bullpen in the Division. This team also has a comparable lineup 1 – 8 with both the 2 clubs in Arizona and Los Angeles.

There is no doubt that the D’Backs heart of the lineup is better, but guys like Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and Matt Duffy all featured decent offense in the 2015 campaign.

The Giants have won the World Series in 2010, 2012 and 2014 recently.  A lot of the core is still intact for 2016 - and they have added Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija to their Starting Rotation.  The Dodgers have had one of the worst winter's in the Majors so far - and must counter with a premiere player left on the open market

The Dodgers have had one of the worst winter’s in the Majors so far – and must counter with a premiere player left on the open market.

When you add in a championship pedigree of proven playoff performers and you can see how the Giants should be looked at a little bit more after this latest signing.

These are the reasons why they are the play of the week.

Speaking of two teams that are on the bad odd list every 7 days here this winter – and with poor offseasons are the Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers.

I have been railing on the Bucs in several articles because of their lack of spending.  They have lost 4 players from their 98 win campaign (A.J. Burnett, Pedro Alvarez, Neil Walker and Charlie Morton) and added just Jon Niese and Juan Nicasio thus far.

The Rangers are minus Yovani Gallardo – and have only really added Bullpen help.  This while Houston goes and trades for a Closer like Ken Giles this week.

I am also down on the San Diego Padres.  I fully believe they should be down with the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves right now.  They, Colorado and the Reds should all challenge 100 losses in the next season.  Their odds should reflect that.
