2018 MLB World Series Futures: Get Baseball Back In Your Sportsbook

Major League Baseball Spring Training has officially begun. What it means is that online bookie agents must get their players to start betting on baseball.

The best way to do that is to promote 2018 World Series Future wagers.

Current 2018 World Series Future Odds

Below, are current odds on MLB teams to win the 2018 World Series. Only teams offering less than 10 to 1 odds are listed.


L.A. Dodgers                          +500

New York Yankees                 +550

Houston Astros                                  +550

Chicago Cubs                          +550

Washington Nationals             +800

Cleveland Indians                    +850

The MLB World Series Team Breakdown

The L.A. Dodgers are the favorites to win the 2018 World Series even though the Dodgers failed to re-sign Yu Darvish. Instead of re-signing with the Dodgers, Darvish signed with the Chicago Cubs.

Because the Cubs’, Astros’, Yankees’, and Dodgers’ odds are so close to each other, agents can easily promote World Series Future betting. I

t’s rare to find so many decent teams offering overlay odds. Often, the favorite to win a major sports league championship is a favorite by a huge margin.

The New England Patriots were +300 favorites to win Super Bowl 52 before the season started. The second choice were the Green Bay Packers at +800.

Golden State was a -125 chalk to win the NBA Championship this year. Now, the Warriors are even bigger favorites. The Warriors are at -200.

Only NHL provides as decent championship future odds as MLB.  The real key for per head agents is to promote the baseball odds, not necessarily the teams. Here’s an example of promoting baseball odds instead of the team.

We’ll use the Cleveland Indians to illustrate this example.

“Before the 2017 MLB Playoffs, the Cleveland Indians had played so well that they had been beat down to +350 favorites. Cleveland was favored over the Dodgers and Astros, the two teams that ended up in the World Series.”

A great way to promote action on Cleveland at +850 is for per head agents to promote the +850 odds. The fact that last year’s World Series favorite pre-MLB Playoffs was at +350, and is at +850 to win this season, should garner plenty of interest.

Promote baseball odds instead of teams and per head agents will see how much more MLB World Series Future action they generate.
