The biggest series in American baseball will not begin for a number of months, yet now is a great time to start looking at the best World Series underdogs to bet on.
On April 2nd, the 2017 MLS season officially began. We’re now almost 3 months in, and MLB betting experts are beginning to examine which underdog teams have a real shot at winning the World Series this year.
Bet on the Texas Rangers: 41.00
The Texas Rangers have had a relatively unsuccessful season so far in 2017, but their talented roster and success against top teams this season make them one of the best World Series underdogs to bet on in 2017.
At the moment, the Ranger’s odds to win the World Series are set at 41.00. Their current record stands at 39-39, including a 22-17 record at home. As the playoffs approach, the Ranger’s chances of winning the championship will become clearer. If you’re looking to bet on an MLB underdog this year, the Rangers might be your best option.
Bet on the St. Louis Cardinals: 34.00
Another one of the best World Series underdogs to bet on this year are the number 3 ranked team in the NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals. The team’s 2017 goal of becoming more well-rounded on the plate and increasing their athleticism seems at least somewhat accomplished, although their current record of 36-41 has not exactly inspired optimism.
So why bet on the Cardinals making UK gambling news with the upset World Series win this year? For one, they’re learning how to earn runs without just homeruns. The addition of Dexter Fowler to their lineup is helping in this regard. At the moment, NetBet Sportsbook lists the Cardinals’ odds to win the World Series at 34.00.
