World Series Odds: Jays Trail, Cubs Lead

We’re just over a month into the new baseball season and the Toronto Blue Jays are still scuffling at the plate and in the standings.

Toronto’s lineup was supposed to be the most dangerous in baseball but they’ve been more inclined to strike out than score runs so far this season. The bullpen has also been a big disappointment leading to a number of blown leads already. If not for some great starting pitching the Blue Jays may not even be one game under .500.

Despite the disappointing start the oddsmakers at online sportsbook Bodog haven’t counted them out quite yet. Toronto is still well within striking distance in the American League East and a +1400 underdog to win the World Series.

The World Series favorite right now at Bodog are the Chicago Cubs at +375. White almost white buy deltasone online odorless, crystalline powder. The Cubs have been the best team in baseball by far as their 24-6 record confirms. The Cubs are dominating all factors of the game. Dexter Fowler, Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant are leading the No. 1 offense in all of baseball, and Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester and Jason Hammel have led the pitching staff to the best ERA in baseball. Could this finally be the year that the Cubs’ curse is broken?

The No. 2 team on the Bodog World Series futures, the Washington Nationals, were just swept by the Cubs. Washington is listed at +1000 despite dropping their last four games overall.

Even with a four-game losing streak you can’t deny the talent Washington has throughout their roster. Bryce Harper is the best player in the game, which is why the Cubs walked him repeatedly over the weekend. With Stephen Strasburg pitching like an ace and Max Scherzer actually the ace of the staff Washington has the makings of a team tough to beat in the postseason.

Rounding out the top teams on the Bodog World Series odds are the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox, both at +1100. The Mets were supposed to be a contender after going to the World Series last season, but the White Sox were not.

The White Sox own the best record in the American League thanks to a surprisingly solid balanced offense and some great starting pitching. Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and Mat Latos have made quite the starting trio so far, with Sale looking like the early Cy Young favorite.
