The 2019 MLB Season continues rolling along. Although two months have passed in the current season, MLB future bettors can still make big money on future wagers. Check out the current MLB future bets offered along with analysis.
2019 MLB Future Odds You Can Still Bet
2019 World Series Odds
- Houston Astros +270
- A. Dodgers +270
- New York Yankees +450
- Minnesota Twins +750
- Tampa Bay Rays +800
- Philadelphia Phillies +850
The World Series winner should come among the choices listed here. The Dodgers and Astros appear to be running away with the AL and NL respectively. Don’t sleep on the Yankees and Rays, though. New York’s starting rotation hasn’t been healthy and they’re still leading the AL East.
The Tampa Bay Rays have an excellent rotation and bullpen. Tampa’s starting rotation ranks first in MLB with a 2.96 team ERA. The bullpen ranks third with a 3.43 ERA. If the Rays make the playoffs, they can hang with any team because of their pitching.
Houston might offer overlay odds at +270. They’re that good. The Dodgers have also looked great. Los Angeles might not have a good enough bullpen to win the World Series, though.
American League Pennant
- Houston Astros +130
- New York Yankees +220
- Minnesota Twins +350
- Tampa Bay Rays +500
You can also still wager on the AL Pennant winner. Minnesota is the top hitting team in MLB with a team batting average of .274. But, the Twins lack pitching. Tampa is the team to back if you believe they win the World Series.
It’s hard to knock both the Astros and the Yankees. Although they offer the lowest odds, the odds are more than fair. This is especially true for the Astros at +130. The Astros are one of the few teams in MLB that are solid in their starting rotation, bullpen, and batting lineups. Houston looks tough.
National League Pennant
- A. Dodgers +130
- Philadelphia Phillies +420
- Chicago Cubs +520
- Milwaukee Brewers +650
The Dodgers are a solid play at +130. However, there’s a lot of baseball left to be played. If Philadelphia can straighten out their starting rotation, they could be tough. Right now, the Phillies’ starters rank thirteenth in team ERA with a 4.30.
The Cubs are a veteran squad. The Cubs and Brewers are tied in the NL Central. The Cubs’ starting rotation ranks fifth. The Brewers’ ranks seventeenth. Chicago appears to have the edge based on pitching.
World Series Possible Matchups
- Houston Astros vs L.A. Dodgers +430
- New York Yankees vs L.A. Dodgers +630
- Houston Astros vs Philadelphia Phillies +1000
The above are probably the three most likely matchups. You should definitely heck out all of the World Series matchups. The best way to handicap this is to take a team and use that team as sort of the key bet.
So if you like Houston to win the AL, you can play them with the Dodgers at +430. You can also play them with the Phillies at +1100 and the Chicago Cubs at +1300.
You can also bet on division winners. No team has yet locked down their division. Some teams, like the Dodgers and Astros, look impossible to catch. If you like a dog, maybe Oakland to beat the Astros in the AL West, you could back the dog at great odds.
