AL EAST

Analysis:  Last month I had the Orioles as my favorite for the Division at +650, and now they are at +130.  

With recent injuries to several Blue Jays and Yankees key personnel, and the continued struggles of Tampa Bay and Boston, this is a no-brainer.

Baltimore has a 3 game lead on Toronto and a 4 game lead on the Bronx Bombers.

With the Bronx Bombers missing 4/5ths of their rotation, I actually believe the Rays are in better position to win the AL East.

1.  BAL +130 (+650)

2. TOR +168 (-133)

3. NYY  +300 (+320)

T4.  BOS +1600 (+500)

T4.  TB +1600 (+5000)

AL CENTRAL

Analysis:  30 days ago I liked the Royals paying +700 for the odd at the AL Central.  It was right before they went on their big streak.

I would not bet this Division at all, but if you do, I still KC at +700, as I do believe if you played out 7 simulations of the two teams, that the Royals could win the pennant once.

The Tigers are just too strong for the rest of the pack.  The Royals have a series going right now versus the “Motown Boys” – and better win 2 out of 3 against them right now to stay in the race.

I would bet the Royals for the Division, but also bet the Tigers in daily play during the next 3 games from Friday to Sunday.  

1.  DET -600 (-500)

2.  KC +700 (+1000)

3.  CLE +1100 (+600)

4.  CWS +5000 (+2500)

5.  MIN +10000 (+5000)

23rd

AL WEST

Analysis:  The A’s were at -188 one month ago, and held a similar division lead to what they have now (3.5 Games), yet have seen their odd shrink in half.

The trades of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel is good, but shouldn’t have swayed the odd that far.

The Angels are paying a good odd, just as they are not far behind the A’s in talent. 

Seattle is just too far out of the AL West at 9 games, but thankfully they can still win a WildCard berth, and then pitch Felix Hernandez in the game.

1. OAK -333 (-188)

2. LAA +275 (+225)

3. SEA +1400 (+850)

4. TEX +40000 (+1600)

5. HOU +50000 (+50000)

 

NATIONAL LEAGUE

NL EAST

Analysis:  My pick last month benefited me big time – when the Tomahawk Choppers slid down the standings, and Washington has fared bettery.

My pick last month benefited me big time – when the Tomahawk Choppers slid down the standings, and Washington has fared better.

The Nats and Braves are deadlocked in the NL East.  The Oddsmakers still love Washington.

The Braves are a decent squad, but the injury to Evan Gattis had tilted the side of the favorites.  

Washington is deeper on offense and defense, and while the Bullpen’s are pretty even, I would still take the Nats Relief Core anyday.

1.  WSH -180 (+130)

2.  ATL +150 (+150)

3.  MIA +3000 (+1600)

4.  NYM +5000 (+5000)

5.  PHI +10000 (+10000)

 

NL CENTRAL

Cincinnati Reds

Analysis: This Division is so close between the 4 teams, that it will be a fun fight to the end.  

It may be like 2013, where the Wild Card teams both reside from the Central, however the Braves/Nats/Giants/Dodgers all have easier schedules than what these guys will have.

They could all beat each other up.  Last month I was favoring the Cards, but now Yadier Molina hurt for St. Louis, and Cincy’s Joey Votto/Brandon Phillips for the Reds on the shelf.

I am giving Milwaukee the best chance to win the NL Central, but my favorite odds will remain with the Reds.

T1.  STL (+140) ( -110)

T1.  MIL +140 (+138)

3.  CIN +550 (+1200)

4.  PIT +700 (+900)

5.  CHC +50000

 

NL WEST

Analysis:

This was too easy last month, where the Dodgers were a 2/1 odd, and were showing signs of going on a streak.  

The pitching is dominant, and the Giants are facing injuries on offense, and the pitching staff is up and down.

The rest of the Division are going to serve as ‘get well cards for SF and LAD down the stretch.  

The D’Backs, Padres and Rockies might as well deplete all veterans from their clubs with expiring contracts.  Their rosters should be easier to face in Aug and Sept.

1.  LAD -225 (+200)

2.  SF +180 (-275)

3.  COL  +15000 (+800)

4.  SD +25000 (+10000)

5.  ARI +30000 (+15000)

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/
