It’s easy to think that loud self aggrandizing bombast were a new incarnation in the United States, their latest President (and I use the term loosely) an all-eclipsing carbuncle on the reputation of a nation, however one only need look at Major League Baseball to see that this is a trait that has long existed in the home of the brave and the land of the free, and if you wish you can join in with the fun by having a bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series, the most inaptly named competition anywhere on the planet.
- Can the Toronto Blue Jays overcome their 750/1 odds to win?
- Is a wage on the Baltimore Orioles at 45/1 to be victorious insane?
- Will the Los Angeles Dodgers stay favorites to win at 5/2?
- Should you bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series in 2017?
Now for those that don’t usually bet on sports in the US perhaps the idea that one might bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series borders on novelty betting. This is, I feel, because Baseball is just a few minor differences away from the game of Rounders, the preserve of school children you can’t trust to play a contact sport. It also doesn’t help that this grandiose event that sounds like the baseball version of the World Cup in Soccer, perhaps rivaling the Olympics, barely has anyone except the USA in it.
The World Series is a competition that no one else in the world is interested in, save for a few token muppets in Canada still hoping to repeat those legendary wins in the early 1990s when for a couple of years the Toronto Blue Jays actually made the event look international. This makes a bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series a disposable wager, and rather a neat one since they’re currently getting 15/2 to take the title and have recently demonstrated a will to win that has given them quite an edge.
The Red Sox Have Been Caught Red Handed
Everyone looks for an edge in competitive sports, of course, that’s only natural, but unfortunately the Red Sox got caught cheating. Major League Baseball authorities investigated allegations that the team had been illicitly facilitating modern technology to cheat in games by stealing signals. Stealing signals is a time honored tradition, and one often resorted to, but using technology isn’t, and if you need a modern reason to bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series begun in 1903, they’re at least stylish.
The employment of an Apple Watch to communicate a secreted observers reports back to the dug out breaks all the rules of modern baseball and the New York Times story exposing the wrong doing of the current American League Eastern Division leaders has, to say the least, raised a few eyebrows. What punishment could be meted out is still a matter of hot speculation but barring their expulsion taking advantage of US gambling laws to put a bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series at Bet365 is no bad idea. They’re obviously highly motivated.

Of course they’re not the favourites, and any bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series would involve eschewing some of the other teams in the competition. If you live outside the US you’ll have heard of some of them. The New York Yankees at 14/1, the Chicago Cubs at 7/1 and the St Louis Cardinals way back at 50/1 may all ring a bell even if you’ve never sat through a baseball game in your life, pop culture informing us of their existence like it or not. That said, there are few references to the faves.
The Cleveland Indians might just about have popped up on your overseas radar, and at Bet365 they’re getting a neat 21/4 to win the title, but the 9/2 shot in second place is the Houston Astros that sound like a team off the Jetsons and the chance rank table toppers at present at the Los Angeles Dodgers who garner 5/2 to come out of the season victorious. Obviously if you’re in the US gambling news of the winners will mean much outside the states, guess again, and put a bet on the Red Sox to win the World Series, anyway.
