Since breaking the 86-year-old “Curse of the Bambino” with a World Series victory in 2004, the Boston Red Sox have been one of the more model franchises in MLB. They do it a bit differently than most because of the money they can spend, but it’s rare you’ll see the Red Sox go into full rebuilding mode after a couple of down years. Boston has added two more World Series championships since that 2004 season (2007, 2013).
They entered the 2016 MLB season on the heels of two straight losing years and last place finishes in the AL East division. It’s only a matter of time before this organization gets back to prominence, and it’s why bettors will be willing to get action down on more Boston Red Sox odds in the foreseeable future.

Bet On Boston Red Sox Games
The 86-year-old “curse” was lifted in a dramatic way for Boston during that 2004 season, as they were first, and only, MLB team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit. Boston’s comeback came against the hated Yankees and it sparked a solid 10-year period of success for Boston that concluded with that 3rd World Series championship in 2013. Those were great times to be a bettor looking to back the Red Sox often as they only had one losing season from 2004-2013 (2012) and all of those winning years saw them finish the year at least 10 games above the .500 mark.
It hasn’t been as smooth for Boston since that ’13 Championship, and with DH David Ortiz nearing the end of his Hall-of-Fame career, the Red Sox are turning the team over to some young stars they hope can become superstars in this league.
Leading the way on that list are OF Mookie Betts and SS Xander Bogaerts. These two guys started to show signs of super-stardom late in the 2015 season and they are the biggest reason Boston’s future outlook may be as bright as ever. They’ve definitely caught the attention of sharp MLB bettors, and with the Red Sox ready and willing to throw money at established veterans to fix other holes they may have, another decade of success could be on the horizon.
