Examining MLB World Series Odds After A Month

At the current time, the Houston Astros (+450) and New York Yankees (+550) are the top teams in odds to win the World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers (+600); who check in third.

Of course the Boston Red Sox are lurking at +1100 after that. However, another surprise team has made a big jump after that. People had the Tampa Rays as a surprise team in March. Now, the Rays are equal with the Red Sox at +1100 on Bovada to win the World Series. Furthermore, it’s not that hard to envision the Rays playing their way into a wild and deep October run.

From there, a whole host of teams according to Bovada are in the mix for the Fall Classic as the baseball season moves towards May.

Prediction as of right now

I have to say – the AL is wide open and I think that one of the large market teams will eventually win out; swallowing up the small-market Rays. While in the NL, I think the Los Angeles Dodgers will still reign supreme; making their third straight appearance in the sport’s final series of the year.

Who has Value?

At the current time, any team in the NL East offers some value due to the tight race ongoing in their division. Also, the Cleveland Indians really haven’t hit their stride yet. To get the Indians at +1800 could be considered huge value for some. Finally, the Tribe’s division mates Minnesota Twins are playing excellent baseball under Rocco Baldelli. With everyone focused on the Rays, the Minnesota Twins at +2800 could be a solid value bet for bettors.
