Last year was a classic example of how Major League Baseball can surprise. The Washington Nationals were written off for dead after losing superstar Bryce Harper to the Philadelphia Phillies. Yet it was the Nationals instead of the Phillies that won the 2019 World Series. Washington overcame a 19-31 start to the season to win their first ever World Series since arriving from Montreal in a 2005 franchise shift. It was a great example of how baseball has more parity than people and gamblers give it credit for.

While Major League Baseball has the reputation of being a big market sport the facts show otherwise. Since 2014 there has been a different championship franchise every season. And the Big Bad New York Yankees with all of their money and massive payroll have one just a solitary World Series title since 2001.

Since the New Year two perennial Major League Baseball powers have been embroiled in the infamous sign stealing and cheating scandal. The Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox fired their field managers and Houston also turfed its general manager due to the controversy. However, the Astros remain a top tier World Series favorite while Boston is on the edges as a World Series pick

Heading into the 2020 season there are a host of both established and new favorites to consider plus some intriguing potential value plays that may bring more bang for the buck.

Its easy to understand why the Los Angles Dodgers remain a top favorite for a World Series title. Los Angles has made the playoffs seven consecutive seasons and posted a win total of 106 games last year. Yet Dodger Blue has been the sad feeling for this franchise that is yet to go all the way. It would shock some gamblers and fans to learn that LA last won the World Series in 1988. Just as important is the fact that the Dodgers are often massive overlays. To show, they barely turned a gambling profit in 2017 even while winning 104 games. And in 2018 despite winning 92 games they were one of the biggest money losers on the board.

The New York Yankees have enjoyed something of a resurgence under third year manager Aaron Boone. Boone has posted win totals of 100 in 2018 and 103 in 2019. But like the Dodgers, the Bronx Bombers have not been able to close. Their lone World Series title since 2000 was in 2009. Starting pitching proved to be the culprit in New York’s championship aspirations last year.

How Houston responds to losing its leadership will be fascinating as they are still a superbly capable team. The Astros lost the World Series in seven games to the Nats last year as they made the Fall Classic for the second time in three years. Stars such as Justin Verlander, George Springer, Alex Bregman, and Yordan Alvarez are likely to keep Houston in contention.

Meanwhile the Atlanta Braves have gone back to the future as a team that makes the playoffs with strong pitching only to flop when it matters most, just as they did in their era of glory under retired Hall of Fame manager Bobby Cox. Robert Acuna and Freddie Freeman keep the power on from the plate for the Braves.

The Oakland Athletics of “Moneyball” Fame are a team that many bargain hunters will flock to. The A’s are the mirror opposite of teams like the Yankees and Dodgers as they play in an outdated and dilapidated stadium with a payroll ranked 24th out of the 30 big league teams. But they win. Oakland has made the playoffs two years in a row while keeping gamblers happy with one of the best profit margins in the sport.

The resurgent St. Louis Cardinals could be another hidden gem after getting back into the post season for the first time since 2015 last year. St. Louis still commands a decent price that is a potentially better value than most other contending teams.

And then there are the Milwaukee Brewers who were killed by injuries last year but still made the Wild Card game. Christian Yelich was 2018 National League Most Valuable Player and can carry a team when healthy. Yelich missed 32 games last year but still hit 44 home runs with 100 runs scored and 97 runs batted in. Milwaukee should garner its share of gambling support from many expecting them to return to the NLDS where they lost a heartbreaker to the Dodgers in 2018.
