Odds To Win The American And National League For 2016

Back to Back AL pennants and this years World Series Winners. They should the biggest favorite to win their respective division so far on the board. As such, hould be the favorite to win the AL Pennant as well. franchise has most of the core nucleus all heading for Free Agency before the 2018 season. If I were a fan of this club - I would be okay with the team rebuilding after this, but for now to throw all chips in and try to cash in on a chance for a small dynasty. Dayton Moore and the Brass should use any one of their Minor League Players to acquire the next piece or 2 to make that happen in 2016 and 2017.

As such, should be the favorite to win the AL Pennant as well. This website has them listed as +1200 to win just their league championship.  This is the best odd on the board for the entire offseason, and I have plunked down $50 on them.  It baffles me how the oddsmakers still give this club no respect.

I can’t express enough on the awesome value that the odds are singing to me right now.  The KC Royals at +1200 when most gambling establishments have this same odd for the World Series?!  Bet this all day long.

If you looked to the last post I did on the League Odds, you will see almost a perfect record of me dissecting the odds.

All 3 favorite odds clubs for the AL are ridiculous. Boston may be right on course for the top ranked Junior Circuit team, but at +450?  No way.  The Rangers and Astros are also not a given to be that high of an odd either.

Toronto is also an excellent odd to wager this week at +850.  Come on guys really. You have them listed at the same odd as the New York Yankees?

The Mariners, Twins and White Sox all have great odds listed for their League Championship totals.  I am not saying they will win, but all have a punchers chance.  Minnesota won 83 games in 2015, and the White Sox and M’s have decent winters thus far from acquiring talent.

Speaking about a shot based on value, the Marlins are listed as +3000 favorites to win the World Series on some sites, yet have been listed as +6000.

The Senior Circuit was actually pretty fair overall with the totals. The Cardinals have the best bet at +800. The Mike Leake signing this week has leveled the deck a little bit versus the Cubs this week. Even if they don't win the NL Central, they should make the playoffs and then who knows what could happen.

I also don’t buy the leap of faith that much by wagering on the Giants.  They may be just slightly ahead of Los Angeles for the NL West right now, and I believe Dodgers management will counter with some big moves between now and later.

The Pirates continue to get the benefit of the doubt by oddsmakers despite residing in the same Division as St. Louis and Chicago.  I like the John Jaso signing, however my guess is he will be dealt midway through the year to an American League team.  The guy doesn’t rate well as a First Baseman defensively.  Clearly he is a Designated Hitter.

The American League may feature all teams with 70+ wins in 2016, and as such with parity more rampant, Oakland has the worst odds to win the Junior Circuit Pennant at +600. I also feel their may only be 1 or 2 teams that top the 90 win barrier in 2016.
