MLB World Cup Betting Odds
As a sports fan of MLB World Cup Betting Odds, there are few emotions greater than when your preseason predictions come true. Things grow even better if you can convert that precise forecast into money via sports betting. With the MLB season coming to an end and the World Series starting later this week, one BetMGM gambler has a chance to pay out big.
The Astros and the Phillies will square off in the MLB World Cup Betting Odds
You may wager on the teams you believe will meet in the final during the season in any sport. You may wager on which of those teams will win for even higher odds at MLB World Cup Betting Odds. It’s a long shot, but it’s a market where you can put a few dollars in and have a stake in the season as well as a potentially significant return.
At the start of the baseball season in April, one bettor wagered $50 that the Houston Astros will beat the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series. The odds on the wager were 2,500-to-1. The winnings would be $125,000 each.
The Astros have long been regarded one of the favorites to win both the AL West and the World Series. Houston was a 10-to-1 favorite to win the World Series in April. These were the third greatest odds in baseball at the MLB World Cup Betting Odds, after only the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Toronto Blue Jays. The Astros had +475 odds to win the AL Pennant, behind just Toronto.
Philadelphia provides the long-shot portion of the wager. The Phillies were 13-to-1 favorites to win the NL Pennant. The Dodgers, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, St. Louis Cardinals, and San Francisco Giants had the best chances in the National League.
The Phillies would not have reached the playoffs last year, but with the new playoff format in place this year, their 87 victories were enough to secure the National League’s sixth and final postseason slot. For the last place at the MLB World Cup Betting Odds, they finished one game ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers. Philadelphia went on to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card round before defeating the 101-win Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. They defeated the San Diego Padres in five games in the NLCS.
After a rough start, the Phillies fared well to reach the playoffs. Philadelphia was seven games under.500 on June 3rd when manager Joe Girardi was dismissed. Rob Thomson took over and finished the season with a record of 65-46. This season, the Phillies portion of this bet did not seem favorable at times. They got hot at the perfect moment, however, and it’s baseball. They’re right here.
The Astros are the World Series favorites
While the bettor must be pleased with their 2,500-to-1 wager, the task isn’t over yet. They still need the Astros to win theMLB World Cup Betting Odds in order to cash in on the wager. The oddsmakers like their chances. The Houston Astros are now -185 favorites to win the World Series at BetMGM. The Phillies are a +150 underdog in this game.
However, Philadelphia has been the betting underdog in all three series victories. They’re used to playing the underdog. There’s an amazing similarity to the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles, who won four playoff games as a favorite to win the Super Bowl.
The Astros became just the third team in history to win the MLB World Cup Betting Odds without losing a single postseason game. The only other teams to do this were the Colorado Rockies in 2007 and the Kansas City Royals in 2014. Both clubs were eliminated from the World Series.
Of course, when the bettor’s 2,500-to-1 odds are combined with the fact that they are now a big favorite to win their wager, the bettor has the option to hedge their bet. They are now betting $50 to win $125,000.
If the gambler can get their hands on $50,000 in the next several weeks, they may wager it on Philadelphia to win the MLB World Cup Betting Odds. They will earn $75,000 regardless of what occurs. Of all, most individuals do not have easy access to money like that. Maybe they believe in the Astros and will simply let it go. In any case, they’re in a strong position to profit handsomely from a $50 investment.
