All Star Break Bet365 World Series Odds

world-series-betting-canadaAs the 2014 MLB regular season is just past the midpoint and the All-Star break is around the corner, it’s time to begin looking at the standings with a little more intrigue and decide which teams are World Series contenders, and those that are pretenders.

The top team in all of baseballs are the Oakland Athletics, with a record of 55-33 they sit atop the AL West and have been a very consistent team all season long to this point.   For a team that has been highly criticized of playing Billy Beane Baseball, the A’s have not only been playing winning baseball all season long, but they also recently bolstered an already impressive starting rotation this past week as they have acquired SP Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs.

Bet365 sportsbook currently has Oakland as the odds on favourites to win the World Series as they are paying (6.50) odds as that narrowly edges out the AL Central leading Detroit Tigers (7-1) odds.

The Tigers are still not playing their best baseball however they have a comfortable 4 game lead in the division despite having lost their last three divisions.  With players such as Miguel Cabrera, Ian Kinsler, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer on the field, it’s hard to imagine a playoff scenario that doesn’t involve the Tigers.

According to the futures odds at Bet365 Canada the top team in the National League is none other than the free spending Los Angeles Dodgers (8-1) and rightly so.  The Dodgers have been playing great baseball for the better part of the season and just recently surpassed the San Francisco Giants for top spot in the NL West division.  With one of the best starting rotations in all of baseball the Dodgers have the ability to win any series regardless of the opponent.  With Kershaw and Zach Greinke anchoring down the top of the rotation, Ryu, Haren and Beckett fill out the starting five and will give the opposition fits.

The other team in the NL that has World Series caliber talent are the St Louis Cardinals.  Also on Bet365 the Cardinals are paying (13-1) odds to win which is extremely high value for a team that always seems to find themselves playing baseball in October.

The other teams that have the potential to make some noise come the postseason are the teams that have the juiciest odds on the futures markets.

The Baltimore Orioles are leading the AL East and are paying a hefty (21-1) to win, while division rivals Toronto Blue Jays (15-1) and New York Yankees (19-1) are looking up at Baltimore in the standings.

The San Francisco Giants are paying (13-1) and are in a dogfight with the Dodgers for the division crown however they could easily slip into the wild card spot.  As we’ve seen with this team before, pitching wins championships and the Giants have had plenty of stellar performances from their stars after winning two of the last four World Series titles.

Another high value team that is flying below the radar are the Seattle Mariners.  Seattle spent a boatload of money this past offseason and at (26-1) odds to win the World Series, they may be a sexy pick as they are currently tied for the AL wildcard spot.
