How To Bet On The World Series – Tigers Prove They Are Ready For World Series Run

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 10/14/2012 6:50:49 PM

When the Detroit Tigers made the decision to sign Prince Fielder to a $214 million dollar free agent deal in the offseason, it was a clear indication that the team felt it was ready to win now. After advancing to the American League Championship Series with a convincing 6-0 win over the Oakland Athletics in game six of their ALDS, it is clear that this team has what it takes to do exactly that. The Tigers are listed at +225 odds to win the World Series, with their ALCS opponent to be determined in Friday night’s game five between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles. Neither the Yankees or the Orioles have established themselves as a strong favorite for next round, and with the National League a toss up, right now is the perfect time to get in on the sports betting action and take Detroit to win the World Series.

Although he was robbed of some hits by the Athletics’ outstanding defensive play early on in the series, Fielder rebounded well and played his best baseball in games four and five of the ALDS. The 28-year old first basemen went 2-for-4 with a home run that helped give the Tigers the lead in game four before Oakland came back to win it in the ninth, and then had another RBI in game five as Detroit rolled to a 6-0 win. Fielder has now batted cleanup behind at least what is expected to be consecutive MVP winners, first with Ryan Braun a year ago in Milwaukee, and now Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. That middle of the Tigers’ lineup has been clutch all season, providing Detroit with the bulk of an offense that has helped the online sportsbook team reach the ALCS.

However, for as good as the offense has been it is still the pitching that is the Tigers’ biggest strength, and it showed again in game five against Oakland when reigning AL Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander closed the door on the series with a brilliant complete-game shutout. One day after closer Jose Valverde failed to close the door and clinch the series in a game that Detroit led by two heading in to the ninth, Verlander didn’t even give him a chance to close out this one by giving up just four hits over nine innings and striking out 11. The extra day off will help get Verlander ready for the ALCS, and along with Max Scherzer, Anibal Sanchez, Doug Fister, and a strong set of relief pitchers, this Tigers’ staff is as good or better than most of the pitching remaining this postseason.

At +225 online betting odds with just four teams left, Detroit seems like an excellent play to win the World Series. The offense is balanced and powerful in the middle, the pitching could be the best remaining in the postseason, and neither the Yankees nor the Orioles appear strong enough to provide an overwhelming challenge. The Tigers went in to this season expecting to contend for a World Series, and now they are poised to win it all.
