Tips For World Series Betting – Now Is The Perfect Time To Get In On The World Series Odds

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 10/4/2012 6:50:45 PM

With the addition of a second Wild Card team, the potential road to the World Series has become a little longer for at least the higher of the two seeds, whereas the second Wild Card team is just fortunate to still be alive in the postseason. That said, the Wild Card round is the perfect time to get in on the sports betting action for World Series futures, especially if neither Wild Card team is attractive under the current playoff format. The Texas Rangers, Baltimore Orioles, Atlanta Braves, and defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals will all have to play in the one-game elimination playoff to determine which two teams will reach the divisional round in their respective leagues, and with some pretty strong numbers available for the New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, San Francisco Giants, and Cincinnati Reds now is the perfect time to play those futures.

The Rangers certainly didn’t look very good in their three-game series against Oakland, losing all three contests to concede a division lead that was as high as 13 earlier in the season. Texas has come up short in consecutive World Series’ after making it all the way through the AL, and even if they beat the Orioles in the AL Wild Card game they have a tough road to the World Series at +800 betting odds.

Baltimore was particularly clutch in one-run games setting an MLB record with a 29-9 record, but are still considered the biggest long shot in the AL at +1500 and may not get past Texas in the opening game. The smart money here will go on the Yankees and Athletics, the two AL teams that are the hottest heading in to the postseason and favorites to reach the World Series despite solid online betting odds. New York is listed at +450 to win it all, while Oakland is right behind them in the AL at +650.

Over in the National League there are similar circumstances in that either the Cardinals or Braves will be eliminated in game one of the postseason, and neither matches up well with the Washington Nationals in the following round. The best idea here may be to stay away from that matchup altogether not knowing which two teams will even play on that side of the bracket, and invest in the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants at +500 and +750 respectively. Those are solid numbers for two teams that have played very well over the past month, especially considering one of them is guaranteed to at least reach the NLCS.

With the numbers destined to take a dramatic shift once the postseason begins, now is the best time to get in on the action and make a couple of small plays to spread the money around. Putting money on the Yankees, Athletics, Reds, and Giants seems like a good sportsbook investment, as you still get excellent odds to win and it will make watching the postseason a whole lot more fun in 2012.
