MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight
Here’s a look at two favorites, one teams from the middle of the pack, and one long shots to win the 2018 World Series.
Updated November 2018 World Series Futures Betting Odds for 2018
Boston Red Sox 7/2
The Boston Red Sox come into the playoffs as the favorites to win the title but at this price they are not someone I think is worth a play.
There is no question that they had a special regular season but there are a ton of questions surronding the pitching staff.
Chris Sale and David Price are at the top but Sale is still coming back from injury and has never been known as a good postseason performer.
Price could be good but there is also a good chance he could have a really bad postseason. Don’t be surprised if this team doesn’t make it out of the first round.
Houston Astros 7/2
The Houston Astros were the World Series Champs last year and I really believe they have what it takes to come out with a victory again this year.
They have Justin Verlander as the ace for this staff and with the offense that they bring in night in and night out.
This is a team that needs to have some money thrown on them to win the title.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Astros 7/2
Cleveland Indians 8/1
The Cleveland Indians are a team that has gone about the regular season kind of quietly and honestly their odds should probably be a bit lower, but they are a team I think is worth a look at this price.
Their is something about October that brings out the best in this team and they have a group of veterans that is well experienced.
If they can get the pitching they need, there is no question they have the bats and this is a team that needs to be watched out for.
Milwaukee Brewers +14/1
If you can get the Milwaukee Brewers at this price, run to the ticket window and don’t walk, because there is so much value here.
The Brewers have the best bullpen in the league and that is something that is crucial going down the stretch of the playoffs.
There is still some questions around the starting staff, but if they can get to the bullpen, no one can beat them.
