2015 MLB World Series Winner Odds from Pinnacle Sports
Don’t Count The Giants Out – That’s what everyone was doing last season after San Francisco silently slid their way into the MLB playoffs after an 88 win season that gave them second place comfortably in the NL West. They might have a little more difficulty winning the World Series this year though with a bullpen that’s looking more questionable than most MLB betting fans would like. Two of their pitchers will be coming into the season after undergoing operations and Madison Bumgarner will be contesting with the fact that he threw 270 innings last season; enough to strain the strongest of arms. At least their odds are a little more in line with their strained roster. They’ll be at odds of 21.55 to win the World Series this year.
Dodging Another Divisional Demise – After keeping pace with the best in the league with 94 wins and ownership of the top spot in the NL West, the 2014 Dodgers were looking prime to take a run at the World Series in 2014. Their hopes were dashed, though, when the Cardinals took them out in the National League semis. This year they’ve added a new weapon to their roster in the form of Brandon McCarthy and he should do a lot to keep them in contention come playoff time. The only trouble with McCarthy is that injury could snap him away at any moment. His ongoing struggles with his 2011 injury have been relatively under control though.
Nationals Without Treasure– The Washington Nationals are once again riding high on the MLB futures odds table as the current favourites to win the World Series in 2015. The Nationals, however, have done an excellent job at failing to meet the expectations of fans and sports bettors alike over the last two seasons. They missed the playoffs in 2013 and after racking up an NL East leading 96 wins in 2014, they were ejected from the playoffs after just one series against the San Francisco Giants. What the Nationals will need more than anything else this season is a more potent offence. They were held together last year with their star studded cast of pitchers, but it’s hard to keep things moving forward when you host a team batting average of just .253.
Where’s the Money? – Keep in mind that there’s still a lot of time until the season starts so these markets haven’t had a chance to balance out a lot yet. Right now the Boston Red Sox are leading the way with 16.5% of the betting and the Cubs are right behind them with 15% of the action. Despite being the odds on favourites, the Nationals have managed to garner only 10% of the action and the Padres are the next closest to them with 7.6% of the World Series Futures betting action.
