Baseball Handicapping: Cubs, Giants, Mets Top World Series Odds

The Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, New York Mets, Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, and Los Angeles Dodgers top the list of sportsbook and baseball handicapper picks favorites to win the 2016 World Series.

At a mere 6-1 (or +600 on the moneyline) the Cubs are the favorites to end the Curse of the Billy Goat and win their first World Series since 1908, followed by the big salaried New York Mets at +800. The San Francisco Giants are “due” to drink the final bottle of champagne having won the last three even years World Series and are next at +900.

With their pitching staff rebuilt behind Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers are at +1000. Will the pro gamblers handicapping theory that it is easier to be the hunter than the hunted haunt last year’s Cinderella team the Houston Astros? A young squad that exploded a year earlier than expected; will they build on last year’s progress? Oddsmakers don’t seem to be making a fervent declaration either way as they are at +1400.

Could the Atlanta Braves with what is widely considered to be the cream of the crop minor league system in baseball progress early and be a stunning long shot at +2000? Complete odds are below:
