MLB Hot and Not: Week 21 World Series Odds Update

First thing of note on our updated World Series futures table is the eight teams that are off the board at SportsInteraction. There are 46 days left on the MLB regular season schedule and, while no teams are “mathematically” eliminated, some squads are so far out of the race that they think they are in first place. The 2010, ‘12 and ‘14 WS Champion San Francisco Giants will be the first team officially punted as their “elimination number” is now down to just six. Several teams will join the “Off The Board” ranks in the coming days.

Of the remaining contenders, the Los Angeles Dodgers (+225) continue to dozer their way to the best record in baseball. The Boys in Blue are 30-6 since July 1, 2017, and they are 84-34 overall on the season. While the Dodgers will capture the NL West Penant for the fifth year in a row – some postseason success would be nice as they have won just two of their last six playoff series. We’re not sold on second chalk Houston (+500) or our preseason Chicago Cubs pick, but our Washington and Boston tickets are still very much in contention.

MLB 2017 World Series Future Lines Movement

American League Outright Odds

At or near the top of MLB futures boards for years now, Boston is in a familiar spot as top American League World Series chalk. The offseason addition of stud pitcher Chris Sale helped push the Red Sox ahead of 2016 AL Champion Cleveland as the Indians sit second. Toronto is close a “now or never” year as the Blue Jays come in as third favorites. A Lone Star State twosome, the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers, are fourth and fifth Junior Circuit chalk and they will make the AL West a tough division to play in. We see the AL as underdogs versus the NL during the 2017 World Series.

National League Outright Odds

Projecting to be better than they were in 2016, when they won their first World Series since 1908, Chicago is top National League chalk and tied with Boston as co-favorites. What’s not to like? The Cubs are still stacked with pitching, speed, and bats up and down their order. The only thing we see derailing the North Side train is possible wear and tear on starters Jon Lester and John Lackey. Back in familiar territory, the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers  are tied as Senior Circuit second favorites. SF Giants and NY Mets round out the top five list.

MLB Baseball Futures Bets Explained

Forecasting how teams will fair over a 162 game MLB regular season can be challenging. That said, if we look at World Series futures bets the same as an in-season match, some valuable information can be gleamed. Like backing a hot point-guard in the NBA, a strong goaltender in the NHL, or a G.O.A.T. quarterback in the NFL, baseball betting should begin with pitching. That includes starters and relievers as studs consistently working strong innings won’t get a team very far if the bullpen is always imploding. The Giants and White Sox were familiar with that pitfall during the 2016 season.

Beyond that, a bump that’s stacked with All-Stars isn’t enough if a team can’t push runs across the plate so selecting a squad with solid sticks is also important. From there, looking over the season long schedule, researching the division and league teams play in, plus the projected Win Total prop numbers at SportsInteraction, can help with the decision making process. Once the selections are made, head over to one of these CSB recommended sportsbooks to place your wager quickly and securely. We will back with our MLB Championship futures predictions prior to Opening Day.
