The Major League Baseball season is about ready to get rolling for the 2016 season. There are a ton of great storylines heading into the season. Let’s take a look at a few of the best early MLB betting predictions for 2016:

Early MLB Betting Predictions

Cubs are Early Favorites

The Chicago Cubs are +550 odds to win the 2016 World Series. With Jason Heyward coming over, along with John Lackey and Ben Zobrist, the Cubs have turned from the lovable losers, to the beasts of the National League. The Cubs already boast Cy Young Jake Arrieta, along with Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant, along with the Manager of the Year last year in Joe Maddon. The Cubs are the early favorites to win the World Series.

Giants and Mets Close Behind

The next two on the list of favorites to win 2016 World Series are the San Francisco Giants and the New York Mets. Both teams out of the National League, loaded with starting pitching, both should be divisional winners out of the West and East respectively. The Giants have won three titles in the last five seasons, in even seasons; 2010, 2012 and 2014. The New York Mets went to the World Series a season ago; falling to the Kansas City Royals.

Let’s Look at the Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are next, at +1000. The Dodgers lost Zack Greinke, but are hoping Clayton Kershaw can continue to be his dominating self, as well as the offense to pick it up a little bit this season. Corey Seager gets an opportunity to play with the Dodgers every day. The Dodgers are a great pick to win the 2016 Wild Card, out of the National League.

The Rest of the MLB Team Odds

The Boston Red Sox are the top team to bet on in the American League. The Red Sox have surpassed Kansas City as the team to beat. The Red Sox added starting pitcher David Price, to go along with that great offense. Boston is listed at +1050 to win the 2016 World Series.

The next team in the American League listed to win the 2016 World Series is the Kansas City Royals. The Royals are +1175. Kansas City has been to the World Series the past two seasons; falling a game short in 2014, before winning it all over the Mets last October.

Finally, the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros round out the list of Top 8 teams to bet on for the 2016 World Series. The Nationals, led by Bryce Harper and the cast of young pitchers is listed at +1200, while the Houston Astros are at +1500. Houston continues to showcase all their young talent. If the Astros can get the starting pitching they need, look out in the American League.
