Houston Astros’ World Series Odds Jump Post-Trade Deadline

The Houston Astros were undoubtedly the winners on trade deadline day, adding Zack Greinke from the Arizona Diamondbacks along with Aaron Sanchez and Joe Biagini from the Toronto Blue Jays. 

An already formidable Houston pitching staff is now downright scary, and sportsbooks have reacted, placing Houston in a tie with the LA Dodgers at the head of the odds list to win the World Series at +275. 

Can Boston Repeat?

We’d been saying all season that Dave Dombrowski would address the Red Sox’ shortcomings ahead of the trade deadline. Well, the trade deadline came and went and they did NOT address the woeful bullpen. 

Boston has arguably the best hitting lineup in the game and that is augmented by a legit starting pitching staff. Unfortunately, that’s likely not enough to get the job done for a second consecutive season. 

The Red Sox are paying +2200 right now at Bovada.

Good Time to Get in on St. Louis? 

The Cards have recently put themselves into a first-place battle with the Chicago Cubs and are one of the hottest teams in baseball. The road to the World Series goes through Los Angeles in the National League, but there’s no reason the Redbirds can’t give them a tough series.

St. Louis is among the league leaders in most pitching categories here in the second half, however, the offense is still finding its way. At +1800, this is a pretty good long-shot bet. 

Twins, Braves Making Moves

The Atlanta Braves (+850) and Minnesota Twins (+1400) are fourth and fifth on the odds table after taking the lead in their respective divisions during the first half. 

Minnesota has cooled off recently but still has a .617 winning percentage. +1400 may be too low a price, though, as they have a very tough path to the AL pennant with Houston, New York and potentially Boston standing in the way. Cleveland is also charging hard in the AL Central.
