World Series Odds & Picks

Major League Baseball is at the All-Star break making it a perfect time to take a closer look at the 2019 World Series odds and the betting favorites, contenders, sleeper picks, and long shots.

World Series Odds-On Betting Favorites: Dodgers, Yankees, Astros

At the midseason break, we can’t be too surprised to see that the Dodgers (+315 to win the World Series) check in at No. 1. LA is followed by the Yankees (+350) and the Astros (+475).

World Series Betting Contender: Twins

Did you think the Twins (+825) would have 56 wins at the half-way mark of the MLB season? Minnesota is on pace for 100+ wins. The Twins had only eclipsed the 100 win mark once before, in 1965, when they went to the World Series. With 166 home runs this season, Minnesota has already matched their 2018 total and set an all-time, pre-All-Star break major league record. The team’s .497 slugging percentage can be the best in history if the Twins can keep their bats hot. They lead three-time defending division champion Cleveland by 5½ games.

World Series Betting Sleeper Pick: Phillies, Red Sox

Both the Phillies (+2500) and Red Sox (+2900) have the talent to win the World Series. Both teams are also within striking distance in the standings.

World Series Long Shot Pick: Blue Jays

Can the Blue Jays tap into Toronto’s winning ways and rookie Vladimir Guerrero Junior’s Home Run Derby performance to make a World Series run? It is definitely a long shot with rumors of the front office shopping around ace Marcus Stroman. However, stranger things have happened.
