The Major League Baseball betting season is a long season. It’s a grind, you have to pace yourself and not get too high or too low. That said, the baseball odds experts HAVE to constantly adjust in order not to be taken advantage by big baseball wagers. For example, some folks panic when they see a team winless after an opening series, while others get too excited when a team looks outstanding after only a handful of games. Here are some current value 2017 MLB prop bets to consider.
Odds to win the World Series – 2017 MLB Prop Bets
San Francisco Giants +1800
Yes, the Giants have gotten off to a very slow start at 2-5, but they’ve been in a few close games. Madison Bumgarner looks good and they are relatively healthy. With their pedigree, the Giants are value bet right now at this price.
Toronto Blue Jays +2500
Are you kidding me? This team has made the playoffs the last two years. Sure, they lost Encarnacion. But their pitching is strong and Kendrys Morales will be a capable DH replacement. Last year the Jays had an injured and sub par Bautista most of the season. He looks decent so far. Despite a 1-5 record, give me the incredible value here with Toronto.
Cleveland Indians +600
Okay, this MLB prop bet doesn’t offer tremendous value. But at 3-3 on the young season, Cleveland hasn’t taken off just yet. So the idea is to plunk down moolah before Cleveland becomes the class of the American League, which should happen in the not-too-distant future.
