Week 4 MLB World Series Futures Odds Update

Boston (15-2) continues to impress early in the 2018 Major League Baseball season. Pounding everyone in their path, the Red Sox are 8-1 at home and 7-1 on the road. Even more impressive, the BoSox have outscored their opponents by a 108-48 margin (6.3 to 2.8 RPGA) and their +60 RF/RA differential is 22 runs better than the distant second overall +38 Toronto is sporting. The Sox are currently in Anaheim and lashed the LA Angels 19-1 during the first two games of their fight for first overall with the Halos. That is beyond impressive.

With the AL Los Angeles Crew (13-5) dropping two straight to Boston, the New York Mets (13-4) have moved into second place overall in the league. The Angels are just a half game behind the 2018 version of The Amazin’ Mets who we are not entirely sold on yet. Arizona and Toronto, both an impressive 13-5, round out the top five. Don’t buy anything that the Marlins, White Sox, Rays, Orioles, Royals or Reds are selling as those six squads are already double digits out of first place. Texas and San Diego aren’t much better at 9.5 games back.

World Series Week 4 Advice: Toronto’s (+2800) money line won’t last long at Bodog.

National League Championship 2018 Futures Lines

Standings still appear to be a mirage in the NL as four of the top five finished with a losing record last year. New York (13-4) fell back some as the Mets are 2-3 over their last five matches – after they fired out of the gate on an 11-1 roll. Arizona, the only 2017 National League playoff team currently in the top five, sits second as the Diamondbacks (12-5) are one game out. Pittsburgh continues to surprise as the Pirates (12-6) are 1.5 back and they are on pace to win 108 games. We advise caution if considering a buy on the Buccos NLCS odds.

Atlanta has been up and down as the Braves (10-7) are fourth but their season long win streak is just three and they are on a middling 4-4 run. Philadelphia is tied with the Mets for the best record over the past ten games as the Phillies are tied with Atlanta following a 9-3 streak. A group of six teams are all hovering around the .500 mark – including the Dodgers who have won four straight to right the ship some in SoCal. NL standings will be fluent over the next few weeks. A wait and watch approached is advised at top online sportsbooks.

American League Championship 2018 Futures Lines

Though red-hot, Boston hasn’t really separated much from the Junior Circuit field as the Red Sox are just 2.5 games ahead of the Angels in the overall standings. Scoring in bunches, the Blue Jays are on an 8-2 roll and have moved one game ahead of defending World Series Champion Houston. The Astros are one up on Minnesota and 1.5 games ahead of Seattle and Cleveland who round out the top seven. Whether the Jays, Twins and Mariners stay in the race remains to be seen and the Indians haven’t played up to their potential early on.

Mediocre out of the gate, the Bronx Bombers are 6.5 games behind Boston and 3.5 behind Toronto overall and in the AL East. The Yankees have only played twice in the last five days as weather wiped out three of their four games against the Tigers in Detroit.  Toronto and New York Yankees begin a four game series on 19/04/18 and then head home for three versus Boston. That seven game stretch which could shake up the standings considerably. You can put a fork in any AL squads not listed above as they are already facing huge division deficits.

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.
