Baseball season is finally here and that means it is time for some World Series predictions. With the Yankees picking up Stanton, they have to be clear front runners to bring home the hardware this year. The Cubs, Red Sox, Dodgers and Astros aren’t far behind though.
If the pitching can hold up for the Yankees, they just have too many solid bats not to make a run. They should also break the 100 win mark and possibly have the 2 league leaders in homers as well. The Astros are bound to have a solid season and give New York trouble, but I just don’t see a repeat happening.
Let’s talk odds and World Series bets now though. Vegas Insider has the Bronx bombers at 5/1 odds, second lowest odds slightly behind the Astros. There are 2 dark horse teams who have odds I really like. The Giants have added a lot of solid ball players and have a scary 1-2 punch with Bumgarner and Cueto. They have 25/1 odds right now and so do the Angles, who happen to be the other team I like. A nice little 20 dollar bet could potentially win you 500 bucks.
If I had to guess a World Series matchup I’d say Yankees vs Cubs, but the pitching staff of both clubs must stay healthy for it to happen.
