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.
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.
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.
