The Boston Red Sox are the favorite to win it all!
The Boston Red Sox are the current favorite to win the 2018 World Series. Game 1 is on Tuesday, October 23rd at Fenway Park. The last time they won a championship was in 2013 when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4 games to 2. These 2 teams have not met each other in a World Series matchup since 1916. That was when the famous Babe Ruth was still a young man in his prime.
The Red Sox ended the 2017-18 season with a record of 108-54 and only lost 2 games in the playoffs while eliminating the Yankees and the Astros. The standout key players as the season tapered off were Mookie Betts with a batting average of .346 and an on base percentage of .438. J.D. Martinez held down the rest with 43 homeruns, 130 RBI’s and 188 hits.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are not the favorite to win the World Series for a number of reasons. It starts with the fact that they have not won one since 1988. Their season ended with a record of 92-71 and their inefficiency showed in the playoffs. They lost 4 games while facing the Braves but finished strong with a 5-1 victory on Saturday. Matt Kemp finished with a .290 batting average and 85 RBI’s. Max Muncy came out of the storm with 35 homeruns, Yasmani Grandal had an on base percentage of .349 and Cody Bellinger added 145 hits to the mix.
What is the price for the World Series winner?
If you were to place your bets on the game right now, you would find the Boston Red Sox -150. The line on the Los Angeles Dodgers is +135. Once the pitchers for both sides have been announced the official Game 1 line will be posted. Until then take advantage of the series process before they start to change.
