MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight
Here’s a look at three favorites, two teams from the middle of the pack, and two long shots to win the 2019 World Series.
Updated November 2019 MLB Baseball Futures Predictions & Gambling Odds
Boston Red Sox +700
Coming off their fourth World Series title in last 15 years, the Red Sox appear to be the favorite to claim the crown again in 2019. The team’s young core will remain intact, and the money is certainly there for another big-money addition in the offseason.
Certainly, a lot went right for the team on this playoff run, but they have the horses to create similar breaks for themselves again in 2019. This franchise is quickly becoming one which opposing clubs will model themselves after for years to come.
Houston Astros +700
It feels like ages ago, but the Astros looked to be well on their way to a return trip to the World Series after a convincing Game 1 victory over the Red Sox in the ALCS. This team was firing on all cylinders, before its season came to an abrupt end.
Let’s not forget the Astros are just a year removed from a World Series crown of their own, and are themselves one of the model franchises in baseball, with a glut of young talent locked up for years to come, and some wise spending to add key pieces to a roster filled with talent. At the very least, it looks like the Astros and Red Sox are poised to square off in the ALCS for the season year in a row.
Chicago Cubs +1200
It’s strange to think the Cubs were a one-and-done in the postseason this year, but after watching the Dodgers get thoroughly outplayed by the Red Sox in the World Series, it’s important to remember the talent discrepancy that currently exists between the two leagues.
The Cubs are one of the few teams in the NL that can legitimately stand toe-to-toe with the best the AL has to offer, with a slew of big bats, bigger arms, and a manager that can call the shots as well as anyone in the game. Don’t be surprised if they make a major splash in free agency to make their presence felt once again.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Astros +700
Washington Nationals +1800
A down year for the Nationals wasn’t something many expected, but it does mean they’re coming in at the longest odds for 2019 that they have in years, and finding value on the futures board is really what it’s all about.
The Nats figure to lose Bryce Harper, but he hasn’t been great for them for a couple years, and this isn’t a franchise that’s about to fold that money over and keep it in their pocket, so expect to see some action from Washington as the free agent hot stove action picks up.
Colorado Rockies +3500
The Rockies appeared to be in a prime position to make their first legitimate playoff run in years, but they ran into a buzz saw in the form of a red hot Milwaukee Brewers team that wasn’t losing to anyone at that time.
The Rockies have a ton of the right pieces in place, and may be just a big arm or two in the starting rotation away from joining the elite teams in the game, though luring someone like that to Colorado will be easier said than done.
The 2019 MLB Baseball Futures Predictions & Gambling Odds Play: Nationals +1800
Los Angeles Angels +5000
The Angels certainly have the middle of their order set, and that’s usually the hardest thing for teams to do. They’ll probably have to drop more than a few dollars into their starting rotation to really join the elite ranks, but that’s something they haven’t hesitated to do in the past.
Arizona Diamondbacks +7500
The Diamondbacks looked like a team that was ready to compete in 2018, but the humidor took some getting used to, and things just sort of fell apart before the season closed. Getting out of the NL West will be tricky, but there’s a lot of talent in Arizona.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Diamondbacks +7500
