2018 World Series Odds & Picks

The 2018 World Series Favorite: New York Yankees +505

After coming up one game short of reaching the World Series last year and adding big bat Giancarlo Stanton (59 HR), the New York Yankees (91-71) are the prohibitive favorites to win the 2018 World Series. The AL runner-ups have a powerful batting order that features Stanton, Aaron Judge (52 HR), Gary Sanchez (33 HR) and other up-and-coming young hitters like left-fielder Brett Gardner, shortstop Didi Gregorius and first baseman Greg Bird among others. Not only that, but New York has the makings of a fantastic starting pitching staff led by ace Luis Severino (14-6), Masahiro Tanaka, Sonny Gray and veteran C.C. Sabathia (14-5). If New York’s bullpen performs at a high level, it could be lights out for every other AL World Series hopeful in 2018.

The Smart Pick To Win The 2018 World Series: Houston Astros +650

The Astros (101-61) are returning most of their core of players that led them to the 2017 World Series championship, so clearly, they’re going to contend. In addition to AL MVP Jose Altuve, gifted shortstop Carlos Correa and World Series MVP George Springer, Houston will have ace right-hander Justin Verlander for an entire season after he went 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA in five starts in the regular season while winning the MVP of the ALCS against the Yankees. Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers Jr., and Charlie Morton give the Astros a formidable starting pitching staff. Like the Yankees, the Astros need their bullpen to deliver, but there’s no reason to believe Houston won’t really contend in 2018.

The Longshot Pick To Win The 2018 World Series: Colorado Rockies +4500

The Rockies went 87-75 last season and advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. However, Colorado could be even better than they were a year ago, thanks to the expected maturation of a quartet of young hurlers that were all just finding their way in 2017 and a powerful offense that ranked third in scoring (5.09 rpg) and second in team batting average. Colorado added closer Wade Davis and setup man Bryan Shaw and I believe they could take another step forward in 2018 even if no one else sees it coming. Yes, the Rockies finished third in the NL West behind both, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, but isn’t that what the definition of a longshot is?
