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

The Tigers should be a unanimous choice for the 1 odd to win the World Series.  It is only because the A's have to contend with the Angels, and all NL Divisions are close.

The Tigers should be a unanimous choice for the #1 odd to win the World Series. It is only because the A’s have to contend with the Angels, and all NL Divisions are close. I would take Detroit’s rotation and 1 – 9 lineup over Oakland in a series right now, with the A’s possessing a better Bullpen as their only advantage.

With the trade deadline coming and going, the new odds have been posted to win the “Fall Classic.”

The consensus among bettors is that the Athletics and Tigers by virtue of their trades are the top favorites.

1st off, there is no way the A’s should be rated higher than Detroit.  The Angels are just 1 game behind Oakland, which would force them into the Wild Card Game.

The ‘Motown Boys’ hold a 5 game lead on their nearest Division rival Kansas City, therefore should be a heavier rated club.

Detroit has a playoff pedigree of going to three straight ALCS’s, and the A’s haven’t won a playoff series since 2006.

I am not putting down the A’s, the odds are just so low, that it is not worth a wager.

Tampa Bay is also a big longshot.  They should be pegged worse than what they are right now.  David Price is not on the squad anymore, and the +5000 is based on the run they did when he was on their staff.

The Rays have climbed from +13000 all the way to +5000 in about a 6 week stretch, however this team is more likely to finish around the .500 mark for the rest of the year.

The Nationals have surged to a 3.5 Games lead in the NL East over the Atlanta Braves, who have lost 6 straight games.  These clubs meet up several times in the next few weeks, and you have to figure the Nats rotation will give the club the boost to create even more separation.  Having this club as the #5 favorite in the MLB for the WS Title is not being smart.

The Yankees, Blue Jays and Orioles all are formidable opponents for Tampa.

I am surprised the Canadian squad is not taking a beating on their value, as they did not help themselves much near the July.31 deadline.

The Jays are a bad odd this week, however if they can survive until Edwin Encarnacion comes back, they may be a team to look at throwing some cabbage on.

The truth is that the gamblers are becoming wiser as the year continues on.  The oddsmakers are following suit, and adjusting the odds accordingly.  finding 5 value picks for both ends of the spectrum has become increasingly difficult.

The Angels have actually closed more on the A;s, and are among the better values to wager on right now for the World Series.  While I am not sure about their Pitching staff in comparison to the rest of the AL clubs, their offense 1 - 9 is the deepest now, with Yoenis Cespedes now away from the A's roster.

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/
