Another week has passed – and it is time to get serious in our World Series picks.

To start off, I have eliminated 11 teams from the chance to win a World Series.  These clubs include: BOS/CWS/MIN/TEX/HOU/PHI/NYM/COL/SD/ARI+CHC.

It has been a great handicapping year for yours truly, but that could all unravel in the next few weeks.  I had a 6 – 1 – 3 record for best value bets.

As for the entire season, my bets have been plugging away at a great clip.

My best move was to hammer the KC Royals for a $20 wager at 50/1, then hit them for a $7 wager when they rose to 80/1 about 5 weeks ago.

Another highlights was placing $75 on the Tigers when they were at 11/1 odds after a slow 1st week.

I also managed to throw down some nice cabbage on the O’s at a 50/1 odd in May, but also to get them at 6/1 for the Division just after the Jays went on their win rampage – courtesy of Edwin Encarnacion.

Last week I took advantage of a Braves 40/1 odd that presented itself.

I also have heavy bets on the Blue Jays and Angels (got them both at 20/1 – although the Canadian club is looking like a bad selection now.)

For other fringe teams, I also might have lost when plunking down some money on the Yankees at 40/1 last week.

I hit up the Rays pretty good at the start of the season, but more so when they were on fire before trading away David Price.

I will probably lose about $80 on them overall, but I could stand to win in the 2K range, if they could pull a miracle run.

I wagered on the Indians and Bucs back in the 80/1 odds days, and that looks okay…I also hit up the Reds with a big $25 bet at 66/1 odd, which looked nice at the ALL – Star Break, but doesn’t look so good now.

Last week I also made a bet on the Brewers at +1800, before they went down to the same odd the Cards did.

I have never put money on Oakland, Seattle, Washington, St. Louis or Los Angeles to win the World Series because the value has never been there…

On a small note, I did place a $10 bet on the Mariners to win the AL West with a 35/1 odd.  They could make some serious ground if the A’s and Angels split a 4 game series this week, and they continue to roll.

Overall, I am happy with my year recaps, and at least I may be able to hedge some of these bets for a yearly profit at the end of the campaign.

Still no respect by the gamblers at all.  They are more than 2.5 times the underdog Detroit is, and are just tied for 9th in World Series Odds with San Francisco.  Now I ask you, who would you rather have out of those two?

This week I am still running with the Royals, because they hold a 2 game lead, and are 2 and a half times more an underdog than Detroit.

I also liked the value for the Indians (sneaky team with nice schedule), Orioles, Cardinals (could be the week they take over NL Central reigns) and the Blue Jays (play Boston).

I am still leery of the Mariners, who don’t play well at home, are due for a letdown – and have to face the Nationals later this week, facing Jordan Zimmermann and Stephen Strasburg.

Still hate the Oakland odd as they are not sure fire to make anything in a one game playoff – potentially against David Price or Felix Hernandez.

I am down on the Giants, who were obliterated by the Nats over the weekend, and I still can’t shake the fact the Brewers are .500 since a 20 – 7 start.  St. Louis will be better than that heading down the pike.

The Yankees are my 5th team on the down list, having to face James Shields, Rick Porcello, Max Scherzer in 3 consecutive days, before also playing at Toronto this weekend.  Good luck this week fellas.

With McCutchen back in the lineup, the Bucs are a better team, however I stayed away from putting them on any list - because Atlanta is surging, and has a better schedule down the stretch, and Milwaukee and St. Louis will likely prevent the Pirates from making the playoffs too.

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/
