Breaking Down The Three Best Bets To Win The World Series

Posted by on 4/3/2015 10:11:10 PM

The San Francisco Giants are the defending MLB World Series champions but it’s the Washington Nationals listed as the projected favorites to win it all this year at +500. In fact, the National League is absolutely stacked at the top again this season with the Nationals, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals listed as the three teams most likely to win the World Series. However, just because they are listed from 1-3 in terms of the outright odds doesn’t mean they are the three best options for fans looking to make an MLB futures bet on who will win it all. Here is a quick look at the three best bets on the board in terms of picking a World Series champion.

Washington Nationals +500

The Nationals own the best starting rotation in the majors with Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Gio Gonzalez, Doug Fister and Max Scherzer locked in and ready to try and put together one of the most dominant seasons in recent history. All five would be able to fill a No. 1 slot for at least one major league team and to have all five on one staff gives Washington an edge no other team will be able to match throughout the season. A full season from Ryan Zimmermann will help the offense especially if Bryce Harper can take that next step forward in the heart of their order. With an elite pitching staff, a quality offense and tremendous depth the Nationals deserve to be listed as the outright favorites to win it all and nobody will be shocked if they end up getting it done.

Los Angeles Angels +1200

No team won more games than the Angels last season and with most of their core pieces back there is every reason to expect them to make another run in 2015. The emergence of Matt Shoemaker has given Los Angeles a deeper rotation than most with Jered Weaver, CJ Wilson and Garrett Richards rounding out their top four arms and the bullpen looks strong again as well. Matt Joyce will provide some added punch in the heart of the lineup behind Mike Trout and Albert Pujols and as long as they can stay relatively healthy over the course of the season there is every reason to think the Angels have a shot at winning an AL pennant and competing for a World Series title.

Detroit Tigers +1800

The Nationals and Angels are the two best bets on the board when it comes to representing their respective leagues in the World Series but in terms of hedging those bets with a valuable sleeper pick the best bet could be the Tigers to surprise this season. Victor Martinez is healthy again and Miguel Cabrera is still one of the best hitters in the game. Factor in the arrival of Yoenis Cespedes and the offense can be one of the best in baseball. How far Detroit can go will depend largely on the arms of David Price and Justin Verlander with both starters needing to be better than they were a year ago but if the Tigers can hang around long enough to get in to the playoffs and add another elite arm before the trade deadline then their starting trio of Price, Verlander and whoever they get to fill the No. 3 spot could be good enough to get them back to the World Series. They aren’t the AL’s best bet to win it all but they could be the best value bet as a sleeper pick.
