An absolutely abysmal week for predicting which teams would jump on the leaderboard for odds.
Even though I did go 4 – 6 in the weeks prognostications, I pegged the massive loss for the Rockies.
This team plummeted from a +4000 to a +10000 odd to win the Fall Classic. I had the Indians (who skyrocketed from +8000 – +5500 by virtue of a 6 game win streak.)
The Reds also have a +5500 odd, as oppose to +6600.
The Jays are all the way up to tied for 5th on the favorite board, going from +1600 to +850.
Baltimore, Boston and New York all took drops in odds this week that were fairly minor.
Best Bets on the Board Last Week To This Week (Value wise)
1. Boston +2200 (+2800) LOSS
2.. New York +2000 (+2200) LOSS
3. Cincinnati +6600 (+5500) WIN
4. Baltimore +3500 (+4000) LOSS
5. Cleveland +8000 (+5500) WIN
Worst odds on the board Last Week to this Week (Value Wise)
1. Toronto +1600 (+850) LOSS
2. LA Angels +1200 (+1400) WIN
3. Seattle +5000 (+4000) LOSS
4. Oakland +800 (+600) LOSS
5. Colorado +4000 (+10000) WIN
Odds To Win The 2014 World Series This Week (Last Week Odd)
1. Detroit Tigers +550 (+550)
Not a good odd considering the team is 4 – 14 in their last 18.
2. Oakland A’s +600 (Up From +800)
Don’t like this odd once the playoffs start. No dominant ace.
T3. LA Dodgers +800 (+800)
No way the Dodgers and Giants should be tied. SF holds a 8.5 Games Lead and should be higher. LA could still go for a run in the postseason even as a wildcard club.
T3. San Fran +800 (Up From +900)’
This is a great odd with such a big divisional lead.
T5. Washington Nationals +850 ( Up From +1000)
The team is lucky Atlanta cooled off.
T5. Toronto Blue Jays +850 (Up From +1600)
While I like the Canadian team for a playoff birth, I can’t pick them in the postseason.
7. St. Louis Cardinals +1000 (Down From +900)
Cards 5 games out, and are 3 – 9 in their last 12 games. Should be more of a longshot.
8. Atlanta Braves +1200 (Down From +1000)
This odd is legit.
9. Los Angeles Angels +1400 Down From +1200)
A brutal stretch where the A’s swept them, and the Astros played them tough.
10 . Milwaukee Brewers +2000 (Up From +2500)
The Brew Crew have a nice lead in the division despite going 20 – 20 in their last 40 games. This odd is about right.
11. New York Yankees +2200 (Down From +2000)
The Bronx Bombers should be lower for the odd. This betting entity must believe what the MLB reports does, that this squad will make some trades.
12. Boston Red Sox +2800 (Down From +2200)
The Red Sox 9 games out in the East, but only 4 behind a playoff spot.
T13. Baltimore Orioles +4000 (Down From +3500)
The O’s offense is heating up.. Pitching help on the way. They could be a force. Nice odd here.
T13. Seattle Mariners +4000 (UP From+5000)
The M’s always fall once they climb over .500. Destined to be a break even team as constituted.
15. Pittsburgh Pirates +4500 (+4500)
Bucs perfectly pegged with this mark.
T16. Texas Rangers +5500 (Down From +3500)
Team is only 1.5 Games out of playoff bar, have Darvish, and could wheel and deal for other Pitchers, and offense is playing better.
T16. Cincinnati Reds +5500 (UP From +6600)
Joey Votto coming back soon. Cincy just 3 games out of the playoffs.. Winning pedigree for the last several years.
T16. Cleveland Indians +5500 (UP From +8000)
Have won 6 games in a row, have pulled within 3 games of the Tigers, and have a nice division to play in
19. Kansas City Royals +8000 (Down From +5000)
The Royals have gone 5 – 3 in their last 8 games, and have dropped this much? 2.5 Games behind the Wild Card, and 4 behind Detroit. Still a talented squad that went 47 – 34 in the last 81 games in 2013.
T20. Colorado Rockies +10000 (Down From +4000)
Rockies going the wrong way. This happens every year. Fast Start. cool down after Memorial Day.
T20. Miami Marlins +10000 (+10000)
Hold a Wild Card Slot after getting happy on the Rays this week. The odd is par for the course.
T22. Chicago White Sox +15000 (+15000)
Jose Abreu and Chris Sale, and 2.5 Games back off Detroit, and just 1 off the Wild Card Leaders. Good Value there.
T22. Tampa Bay Rays +15000 (Down From +4500)
Massive slide with 10 games lost in a row, and this year may be the season they never get back on track.
T24. San Diego Padres +25000 (Down From+15000)
Everyone hurt or underperforming.
T24. Minnesota Twins +25000 (+25000)
Twins playing .500, but not enough pitching.
26. New York Mets +30000 (+30000)
Mets aren’t doing anything
27. Philadelphia Phillies +50000 (Down From +15000)
Bad team, coach should be fired.
28. Arizona Diamondbacks +75000 (Down From +50000)
I will tell you what. This team shouldn’t be the 28th favorite here. For a few dollars wager, this team might get back in the race for the Wild Card anyway.
29. Chicago Cubs +125000 (Up From +150000)
30. Houston Astros +200000 (+200000)
If they had a stud pitcher to bring up, this might be a nice play for the value.
