Dodgers, Indians Are Betting Favorites In MLB Playoffs

Dodgers, Indians Are Betting Favorites In MLB Playoffs”

Not long ago, analysts wondered whether the 100-win Major League Baseball team was going extinct. The Yankees won six more games than the Twins and they are favorites tonight for a good reason.

Manager Dusty Baker, who has done a good job managing around myriad injuries this year, also will be under scrutiny to see whether he can get a team over the hump. A 37% chance doesn't sound that great if you're a Twins fan. The Nationals won 97 games, despite a rash of injuries.

Now that the Major League Baseball regular season is over and the postseason field has been set, Bovada has put together World Series odds for the 10 postseason clubs. While they travel to NY to face off against a tough Yankees club, there's more than a handful of good matchups slates for October.

But the rest of the series was downhill for Minnesota. The Colorado Rockies (87-75) placed third in the division and 17 games behind the Dodgers.

The pick: Yankees 8-4.

History hasn't been kind to the Twins when facing the Yankees in the postseason.


But this is just one game.

Because the Wild Card Game is considered its own playoff round, each team sets a roster for that game only-they're not bound to use the same roster in the Division Series if they advance.

If 2003 wasn't disappointing enough, then 2004 was another chance for Minnesota to redeem themselves, but it produced a similar fiasco.

Ervin Santana starts for the Twins. It was another lead the Twins could have capitalized on but failed to, and it would be the Twins' last postseason victory to date.

Arizona will beat the disappointing Dodgers, and the Nationals will find a way to beat the Cubs in five games.

Minnesota would not go quietly in the following games. Throw in that Chris Sale is making his postseason debut and the Red Sox appear even more potent than they did previous year. For the ALDS, the Astros will beat an inconsistent Red Sox team and the Indians will beat the Twins.

Of course, the path to a title is a rocky one this season, starting with this Cubs team that is going off at +800 to win the World Series and has plenty of playoff experience over the last two seasons.

The Yanks will begin this game with the better starter, much better bullpen, better offense, better defense and home-field advantage, after accumulating the best home record in the AL this year. Now, he is back in the postseason for the first time in 2014.

The Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers (103-59) and the Houston Astros (101-61) have all played the game at high level this season, as evidenced by their triple-digit win totals.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland Indians are tied for the best World Series odds at +333.

The Indians will travel to NY or Minneapolis to play Game 3 on Sunday.

Alex Rodriguez came up big with a game-tying, ninth-inning blast in Game 1 in 2009.

. They will play the victor of Tuesday's wild-card game between the Yankees and Twins.

Below are odds for each playoff team to reach the World Series, as well as betting odds for each individual postseason series, via

CLEVELAND- There will be extra security on Gateway Plaza when the Cleveland Indians play in the American League Division Series.
