Following the path we predicted they would, San Francisco and Kansas City will battle for the 2014 Major League Baseball World Series Championship. The Giants have been in this spot regularly as they won the Fall Classic in 2010 and 2012 while they’re partying like it’s 1985 in KC – the only time the Royals played and won on baseball’s biggest stage. Game 1 is slated for 8:07 PM ET on October 21, 2014, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, MO.
SF Giants World Series experience plays a huge role here
There’s something to said for experience and San Francisco will bring a ton of it into the 2014 MLB Fall Classic. The Giants core that claimed the World Series in 2012 remains largely intact as Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Madison Bumgarner and Hunter Pence, to name a few, have all been here and done this. San Francisco is 8-1 over their last nine World Series games and 8-2 during the 2014 MLB playoffs. The Giants playoff savvy pitching rotation will be Bumgarner, Jake Peavy, Tim Hudson and Ryan Vogelsong over the first four games.
Kansas City: Chasing the NY Yankees playoff game winning streak
As we discussed in our successful ALCS preview, it’s been a magical season for Kansas City who have been in playoff mode since the MLB All-Star break. The Royals eight straight playoffs wins this year, coupled with their three victories over St. Louis in the 1985 World Series, means that Kansas City is just one win away from tying the New York Yankees MLB record of 12 consecutive postseason wins. The Bronx Bombers set that mark twice, most recently during the 1998 and 1999 MLB playoffs. James “Big Game” Shields and Yoradany Ventura are slated to start the first two games for Kansas City with the Royals remaining pitching rotation still to be announced.
MLB 2014 World Series Prediction
While it’s difficult to bet against a magical run like the one Kansas City is on, it’s even more difficult to wager against playoff experienced pitchers like the ones San Francisco will send to the bump in this series. Add in a wealth of experience up and down the Giants batting order and betting against San Fran becomes virtually impossible. Back the Giants with a 330 unit money line wager to win the MLB 2014 World Series Championship at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook. Enjoy the Fall Classic everybody!
