Odds To Win The 2014 World Series Currently + Best/Worst Value Bets

The Orioles are in a brutal part of their schedule in which they are on a 10 game roadtrip to the west.  They dropped 2 out of 3 to the A's over the weekend, and now play 4 @LAA and 3 @ SEA before returning home to play the Angels again next week.  All of their Division teams won their weekend series, including the Yankees Red Sox and Rays sweeping - and the Blue Jays taking 2 out of three versus Texas.

With our Monthly Rankings article coming on Thursday, I thought I would do this weekly article right now, even though 3 games have only transpired since the ALL – Star Break.

There has been some movement for sure.  I had a paltry week of predicting at 2 – 5 – 3, but am still prognosticating decently for the year.

Late last week, I bet the Rays, Indians and Red Sox for the World Series at $5 bets.  TB pays out at 100/1, Cleveland 80/1 and Boston 65/1.

I also will win a lot of money in the AL East, unless the Blue Jays or Yankees take down the division.  That is another article for another time.

The Oakland Athletics should be the AL West favorite, but to have them ahead of the Dodgers and Tigers is probably not realistic.  Worst yet, is that the Angels are actually higher on the odds to win the World Series than the A's, according to Baseball Prospectus World Series chances.

The Oakland Athletics should be the AL West favorite, but to have them ahead of the Dodgers and Tigers is probably not realistic. Worst yet, is that the Angels are actually higher on the odds to win the World Series than the A’s, according to Baseball Prospectus World Series chances.  Oakland is better set for the regular season, and because they have to fend off the Angels, it may force them to play a WIld Card Play In Game.  Don’t bet them at +500. because that odd is not ever likely to go lower than that.

As for the World Series wager, if any team from the AL Central wins the title, I am up at least $500 worth of profit.

If the Red Sox or Orioles win the thing, it is about $800 worth, and the Rays would net me $2000, as I have hammered the hell out of them, expecting a bounce back, and taking advantage of high value.

In the National, I rolled the dice with the Pirates for some NL Central winning odds of 9/1, and they are climbing up the Division fast.

Milwaukee, St. Louis, Los Angeles and any team in the NL East (except Philly) can squash my profits into flames.

My hopes for the NL circuit lie within Cincinnati ( I can win about $1700 for a WS win, got them at 66/1 odd when they started 3 – 8.)

I also have taken advantage of high odds for the Bucs at 80/1 back when they were struggling.

The AL West can dash my World Series cash quest as well.  Of note, my best Division bet of the last 3 weeks was picking the Angels both at +250 and +300 for an AL West win.

The trades the club has done has armed them with a nice Bullpen now.

1. TB +8000 (Pivotal 8 game stretch before the Trade Deadline, need to go at least 5 – 3, if do, could keep the team intact.

3. WSH +1000 (lift off sometime soon)

4. PIT +3300 (They are sneaking up on people, and could pull of a trade to help, and they are healthiest in the division)

5. CLE +5000 (Are back in the Wild Card Race too, and have some cupcakes to play in the AL Central, with the rest of the teams selling off pieces, maybe even KC.

Worst odds on the board This Week (Value Wise)

toronto-blue-jays-logo-300x300

4.  Cincinnati +3300 (Brutal weekend versus the weekend, and injuries are piling up)

5.  BAL +1800 They play 7 of the next 10 games versus the Angels, mixed in with a series at Seattle.  New York in contrast, plays Texas 7 of next 10 games.

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/
