Odds To Win The 2014 MLB World Series – Updated For Week 8 + Best Value Bets

If Chris Davis is at his HR centric best, all of a sudden this team is lethal from Nelson Cruz, to Adam Jones, and hence should I say a healthy Matt Wieters crushing from the DH slot, or potentially this team could ink a Morales, or trade for another guy.  Pitching Staff is holding up, and now it is time for this team to roll.  Having New York, Toronto and Boston so heavily favored over them for this category is a farce.  Take the +3500 value.

I had my worst week for prognosticating the best odds, however I made up for it, with the worst odds of the week.  In all, I was 4 – 4 – 2 for the week.  I still have not had a losing record, and many winning ones.

The Rays and Royals have plummeted in their odds for the World Series.  I am not sure about either one of them getting back into the race, although that Tampa +5000 this week is very tempting.

The Kansas City offense is a joke.  They should sign Kendrys Morales after June, and then turn around and trade Billy Butler.  Morales won’t make much more than “Country Breakfast” and is a more consistent hitter all around.

You could also acquire some more depth somewhere else for Butler’s services.  Heck, Seattle needs a DH right now, and they aren’t even calling Morales for all we know, and are going with Nick Franklin until Corey Hart is back.

Stephen Drew has definitely been hindered by the Draft Pick compensation.  Now with Detroit losing their Starting Shortstop for potentially the entire 2014 year, the door has swung open for the 31 Year Old player from Georgia.  If I were Drew and his agent, I would push the envelope for a 2 year deal, or at least have a total near the $14.1 MIL barrier for a one year contract.  Drew is coming off a World Series year in 2013 with Boston, where he fashioned a .777 OPS and 50 Extra Base Hits in just 442 AB.  For the club to re-sign him at a discount is a solid move.  Will Middlebrooks is hurt, and you just deepened the clubs depth.  The Beantowners could pull off several more moves, and with the Rays pitching staff hurt, and the Yankees rotation decimated as well, the +1400 is a decent odd.

You have to love the Jays offense so far, but the Starting Pitching will always worry me, and I don't think Buehrle can keep this going all summer long.  At +2000, I don't see it.  Especially with Boston and Baltimore residing in the Division, and the Yanks and Rays being able to provide stiff competition - even if they are out of it themselves.

Liriano was a dominant ace in 2013, putting forth a top 10 NL Cy Young Finish (9th), while winning a career high 16 games, only losing 8 and having a 3.02 ERA.  He kicked in his 2014 salary for $7 MIL after making a a valued $1 MIL in 2013.  The problem is that the LHP doesn't ever back up a good year with another.  AKA "The Bret Saberhagen Syndrome."  Since he is 0 - 4, with a 4.86 ERA thus far, our words of wisdom seem to be shaping up.  NO 2013 Liriano, no playoffs.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at http://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
