2017 MLB Winter Meeting Wrap: Winners & Losers 15/12/17

MLB 2017 Winter Meetings have wrapped up in Orlando, FL. While the real winners and losers will be determined during the regular season, some teams will enjoy the offseason more than others. Christmas came early for New York Yankees fans as the Bronx Bombers acquired reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins. Aaron Judge and Stanton may surpass the 91 home runs posted by Willie Mays (52) and Willie McCovey (39) with the SF Giants in 1965 – the last time MLB teammates finish one-two in big flies.

Acquiring prized pitcher Shohei Ohtani, plus plugging infield holes with Ian Kinsler and Zack Cozart, the LA Angels should be able to make a run at defending World Series Champion Houston in the NL West. Pitchers, middle relievers especially, have also been winners as they are signing contracts worth huge dollar figures. As reported by MLB TradeRumors.com, 16 relievers have signed contracts worth $180 million so far this offseason. That includes left hander Mike Minor who inked a three-year $28 million contract with the Texas Rangers.

Having a fire sale, similar to the blaze that gutted their 1997 World Series winning squad, Miami is now a shell of the 2017 squad as the Marlins also dealt Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals. Combined, Stanton and Ozuna smashed 96 of the Marlins 194 home runs and accounted for 256 of Miami’s 743 RBI’s last season. Active bidders for Ohtani, Stanton and Ozuna, San Francisco has had a rough offseason. 2018 World Series futures lines will mellow some at Bodog now but we will be back with updates when they are warranted.

Major League 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 respected bookmakers, 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.
