3 Bets To Make For The 2021 World Series
1. Milwaukee Brewers (+5000): Let’s start with a logical midrange team with upside. 2018 NL MVP Christian Yelich is ready to rebound. The Brew Crew boasts baseball’s best strikeout pitcher, Josh Hader, plus budding aces Brandon Woodruff and Corbin Burnes. If Freddy Peralta can also break out, even better. The NL Central is there for the taking.
2. Kansas City Royals (+10000): Dangerous bats like Adalberto Mondesi, Whit Merrifield, and Jorge Soler fuel this long-shot pick. If the Royals find consistent pitching to complement the underrated Mike Minor, they could rediscover their 2015 World Series-winning magic.
3. LA Dodgers to beat Toronto Blue Jays (+5000): Here’s the most logical way to incorporate a sensible profit pick. The Blue Jays (+2200) already have some recognition in the World Series betting market, ranking among the top 10 clubs predicted to win the trophy, but pairing them with a likely World Series participant like the Dodgers is one way to make a better return on an investment in them. If Toronto can get stable pitching to complement George Springer‘s new team with its young elite hitters Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, and Cavan Biggio, the market price for them will quickly soar. Get the ROI early on this season.
Sharp bettors should dig for value. Watch the inseason futures movement of promising teams like the Houston Astros (+2200) and St. Louis Cardinals (+2200), too.
Still, to bet an exact World Series result, go with a favorite (Dodgers) and a riser from a likely wide-open American League playoffs. The Blue Jays (+2200) will break through if their young stars blossom.
