Fans in “Beantown” are starting to get excited for Major League Baseball postseason as their team is still favored to hoist the Commissioner’s Trophy in October. Three major offshore sportsbooks have the Boston Red Sox tapped to win it all, with highest odds coming from bookmakers at BetOnline at +375. You can then find Da-Sox at Interops paying +350, while timid Bovada have +333, so it’s clear where top value is at heading into the long weekend.
Most fans won’t be surprised the Houston Astros are everyone’s bridesmaid, with BOL again awarding most at +450. Bovada stepped up to the plate to match this number, with Intertops paying a lowly +400.
In an interesting turn of events, they disagree on third-best chance of winning the World Series, with Bovada and BOL pegging the New York Yankees, (+600 and +700 respectively), while their competitor has the Chicago Cubs in that spot at +700. Although in fairness, they have the Yanks right behind them at +750 so there is some consensus.
As always, it pays to shop around for value when betting on sports at U.S. online casinos, so always take a little extra time to see what’s out there. A few simple minutes could drastically increase payout amounts, especially for those who like to back long shots. For example, the Tampa Bay Rays are paying +20000 at most places, but paying an insane +50000 at Intertops, offering more than double if the impossible comes to pass.
So will smug fans in New England get to keep calling themselves “The City of Champions” this fall or will they get put in their place with an early playoff exit? You can back them or against them, as well as get down on tons of other MLB odds at BetOnline Sportsbook, always extending excellent financial incentives to new registrations. Wicked Awesome!
