Odds To Win The 2016 MLB World Series

The Tigers had a nice week of 3 -1 to start the year. Miguel Cabrera and he offense looked good. The Starting Pitching was given a massive lift with Jordan Zimmermamnn doling out a Shutout on the Comerica Park opener Friday. In a competitive AL Central, the Motown Boys should still be in contention for a playoff spot all year, and be given respect. Instead, clubs are ahead of them in the AL that shouldn't be. At +2200 they are a bargain. They are the best bet on the board this week.

After the 1st week of action the gamblers have spoken.  The Cubs are solidifying their status as the favorite.  Despite a slow week – the Jays are still tied with the Royals for the favorites in the Junior Circuit.

They finally have pegged KC at the right mark.  In fact, I have no problem with the top 5 odds listed at all.

The first place I have found value is with the Nationals.  They went 3 – 1  in the 1st week. and will throw both Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg 2 times each this week versus the Braves ( 4 game series) and Phillies (3 game series).  I could see this team winning at least 5 games, which would put them at 8 – 3 or better after next Sunday.  Bet them now before their odd jumps to +800.

To begin the year the NL East was rail thin in difference. and with Washington jumping out to a bit better of a start than New York – coupled with the cupcake schedule this week. they are a great value on the board.

Detroit is going to my favorite selection of the week.  They win 3 of 4 games, have solid offense – and yet maintain their same odd from last week, when all of the AL West clubs did not have a winning record except for the A’s, and the AL Central and AL East had the usual culprits only playing okay (in addition to Baltimore).

While I received better value at betting the O’s to win the American League Pennant in my preseason picks (At +2800, which is now what they are listed at for the World Series following their 5 – 0 start.)  Listen I am happy I made those picks, and the ALCS win was the way to go versus the +5000 bet they had – as I think all AL clubs would be underdogs in the Fall Classic against the top 5 favorites.

Boston Gets Blanked: Then There Were 23 Teams Left In 2016 MLB Shutout Survivor + MLB Runs Scoring Survivor Update

The Jays won a critical AL Divisional game versus the Red Sox to salvage their weekend – but also knock out one of the favorites not to be shutout before all other clubs.  Marco Estrada frustrated and stymied the Beantowers at the Rogers Centre.

With plenty of clubs having not played 5 games yet, Boston could finish higher than 23rd still, if those other clubs get walloped more than 3 – donut.

In MLB Runs Scoring Survivor, the Cubs picked off their 7th variations, and could be the 1st club to complete once they hit games where they score 8, 5, 3, 1 and 0 runs.  Perhaps the zero may be the toughest total to reel in for them.

There is a huge logjam at tied for 2nd with 5/11 variations.  Washington has only played 4 games, so you will have to forgive them for their low 2 different variations.

The Padres have completed 6 games this year. were shout 3 times to start the season, then scored 16 and 13 runs right after, and then finally place a number between 1 and 9 runs yesterday with 3.

We will take the amount of games played as the factor in determining who wins, so even if a club finishes 1st – all others would have to have passed the mark for them to be deemed the winner.  Tiebreakers will go to the clubs who scored the must runs on their final variation.  If there is still a tie, the standings for Runs Per Game (in the MLB) will be the next tiebreaker.

There is some lunacy in scheduling games in places we know will be cold and miserable.

And somehow I tie in the baseball season to how TV networks do their shows now.

Enjoy this “For All Seasons” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast

Manny Machado, Brandon Belt, Marco Estrada, Joe Ross, Eduardo Nunez, Nick Markakis, Felix Hernandez and Jeff Locke all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.
