Yankees lead World Series futures
Are the Yankees the best bet to win the World Series at 6 to 1? Can the Phillies repeat as longshot 16 to 1 underdogs? The MLB season opens on Monday and now is the time to take advantage of some great baseball future odds.
Online sportsbook bodogLife.com has a ton of future bets posted, such as World Series winner, NL and AL Pennant winner, and division winner as well as other cool future bets such as Over/Under win totals for every team and which division the Wild Card will come from in each division.
Obviously the Yankees have the best odds at Bovada to win both the World Series (6/1) and the AL Pennant (3.5/1), as the Yankees signed three of the top free agents in Pitchers CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett and 1B Mark Teixeira.
The Yankees are trying to buy the Fall Classic and if A-Rod has a big year and these free agents stay healthy they have more then a legit shot. Other teams that have good odds to both win the World Series and their respective divisions are the Red Sox, Mets, Cubs, and Angels.
Man, no love for last year’s Pennant winners, as the Phillies and Rays only have decent odds. The Phillies may be a great pick with great odds, as they did not lose anybody and they are the defending champions. The Phillies are posted at Bovada at 16/1 to win the World Series and 6/1 to win the NL Pennant.
In terms of player future bets, bodog has you covered.
These are the kind of baseball odds that fantasy sports fans can often dominate. While the oddsmakers set lines that are as sharp as possible, reality is that some fans and stats freaks will be able to beat them.
They are offering odds on the player to hit the most Home Runs in the 2009 MLB Season, Odds to win the 2009 AL MVP, Odds to win the 2009 NL MVP, Odds to win the 2009 AL Cy Young Award, Odds to win the 2009 NL Cy Young Award, and Who will record the most strikeouts in the 2009 Season?
They also are offering many player prop bets, such as Mark Teixeira - How many HR’s will Mark Teixeira have in the 2009 Season? (O/U 32.5), Johnny Damon - What will Johnny Damon's Batting Average be in the 2009 Season? (O/U .287) and Kerry Wood - How many Saves will Kerry Wood have in the 2009 Season? (O/U 31.5) just to name a few.
Sportsbook.com not only has futures available for the World Series and the AL and NL Pennant, but they also have futures for each division as well as the home run king.
Sportsbook.ag has last year’s home run king Ryan Howard (+300) as the favorite, but they are up in the air after that, as the Field (+800) has the second best odds. Other sluggers that have good odds are Ryan Braun (+1000), Miguel Cabrera (+1000), Prince Fielder (+1200), Albert Pujols (+1200), and Evan Longoria (+1200). How about Nationals new free agent slugger Adam Dunn (+2000) as a good pick with good odds?
Sure, he will whiff 200+ times, but he was paid good loot to fill the stadium in the nation’s capital and the way to do that is with the long ball, so he will be given the green light to swing away.
These future bets may be available for some time, but now is the time to make these types of wagers, as you will get the best odds. For example, if the Yankees start the season 25-5 and are in first place in the AL East by 10 games, don’t think you will see odds at bodog to stay at 6.5/1 to win it all.
