Our Picks to Win the 2017 World Series:

Fav: Washington Nationals. They have the pitching and lineup to pull it off.

Middle of the Road: Arizona Diamondbacks. They've slowly been building a strong team of young pitchers and hitters.

Longshot: Seattle Mariners. The talent is there but can they stay healthy?

Good luck with your predictions!

Previous Season's

Our 2016 Predictions:

Fav: New York Mets at 10/1. As long as they can stay healthy, we absolutely love this play.

Middle of the Road: Pittsburgh Pirats at 25/1. This group has been together for a few years and is becoming very respectable. They've added some nice pieces that should help them make a late season push for post season action.

Longshot: Seattle Mariners at 35/1. The tools are in the shed. Could happen.

Our 2015 Picks to Win it All:

Favorite: Washington Nationals 5-1. So much good pitching that an injury or two won't even put a dent in their rotation.
Could Happen: KC Royals 35-1. Getting no respect after making it to the World Series last year. They didn't lose that much!
Longshot: Houston Astros 60-1. All those draft picks and young players are going to mature one day and it'll shock the world.

Our 2014 Predictions:

Short Favorite: Dodgers 6.5-1. Giant shot if they can stay healthy.
Middle of the Road: Nationals 12-1. All the pieces are there!
Longshot: Pittsburgh Pirates 28-1. Not likely but wouldn't surprise me. Lots of good young players maturing and ready to bloom.

Our 2013 Picks:

Short Favorite: Washington Nationals 8.5-1
Middle of the Road: Tampa Bay Rays 25-1 (Made the playoffs but got beat)
Longshot: KC Royals 50-1

Our 2012 Picks:

Short Favorite: Detroit Tigers 8-1 (Just missed!)
Middle of the Road: Arizona Diamondbacks 28-1
Longshot: KC Royals 80-1

How to Bet Baseball

Moneylines - The most common of baseball bets. Beautiful too, as they create a situation where you can win less than 50% of your bets and profit by betting underdogs!

Totals - The easiest wager to beat in all of sports betting. There's a reason why sportsbooks have lower limits on over/under bets!

Runlines - A wager that creates a point spread where a team is either -1.5 runs or +1.5 runs. Underdog run lines are a great bet for game in which you predict a slim margin. Favorite moneylines pay well and are great bets for potential blowouts.

Alternative Runlines - Turn a favorite into a +2.5 underdog! Turn an underdog into a -2.5 run favorite. You better know what you're doing before betting these lines or your bankroll will resemble the action of a craps table.

Parlays - This type of bet is the reason many bookies drive cadillacs. Big risk; big payouts!

Prop Bets - Similar to totals, these are easy to beat if you do your homework. Avoid the ones that look easy though as they're surely sucker bets.

Futures - A great bet for recreational bettors who only want to spend a few bucks and have something to root for all season. There's a big payout if you're right!

Season Wins - Bet on teams to go over or under the posted total. Fading public opinion can make you money with this type of wager. Especially with public teams.
