Odds on who will win the 2012 World Series
The 2012 World Series is an entire summer and fall away, but it is never too early to look ahead when you can bet on baseball futures at BookMaker.
For all of you who simply cannot wait for the Fall Classic to return, you can check out the odds on the MLB futures to see which teams are favored, and if any potential winning situations exist for you. The favorite in the clubhouse as of now is a Texas Rangers ball club full of stars. The odds that they win the 2012 World Series currently stand at +350.
The way Josh Hamilton is going, he may hit 350 homeruns. The former MVP went on a tear recently, hitting 8 homeruns in a week’s time, including 4 in a single game. The bat he used to do it recently cracked, so they sent it along to the Hall of Fame.
Hamilton’s bat may send the Rangers back to the World Series for the third straight year, but it will get help from a solid pitching staff as well, headlined by the newcomer, Yu Darvish.
If betting on the favorite this far out seems a little risky to you, then I like the way you think. With such a small payout, it may not be worth taking a flyer on the Rangers this far out.
However, I do not advise taking a team like the Seattle Mariners just because the odds sit at +12500. Seattle has a stud in ace Felix Hernandez, but they continue to struggle on offense as they try to integrate promising prospects into the major league level.
My pick on this bet on baseball futures is a talented Detroit Tigers team not getting quite enough love from these odds. The Tigers sit at +825, and considering their .500 record to start the year, I can understand why some would be wary.
However, with an explosive lineup and stellar starting pitching led by Justin Verlander, the Tigers have what it takes to win it all. That middling record is only making your potential payout that much higher.
I would advise taking Detroit in this future, but check back at BookMaker to see if the live lines shift the odds one way or the other.
