NLCS:  L.A. Dodgers vs Milwaukee Brewers

After Cody Bellinger’s Game 3 hit, the Dodgers evened the NLCS at 2 games apiece. Game 4 and Game 5 take place in L.A. before the series moves back to Milwaukee for Game 5 and Game 6.

See below for World Series Odds

L.A. Dodgers                          +275

Milwaukee Brewers                +400

The Dodgers have leapfrogged the Houston Astros to land as the second choice to win the World Series. At +275, many bettors feel that the Dodgers can beat the Boston Red Sox in the World Series after getting past Milwaukee.

Although Los Angeles tied the series, the thinking doesn’t make a ton of sense. Milwaukee appears destined to win the National League Championship Series.

That means bookies should pay more attention to the odds on Milwaukee at +400 to win the World Series than they should on the Dodgers at +275.

Bookies should set max betting limits on both. They should pay attention to action on Milwaukee, and, maybe, take the bet off the board if they discover a huge liability.

ALCS: Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros

The Red Sox dominated Houston 8-2 in Game 3. That’s one of the reasons the Red Sox are a solid +175 favorite to win the World Series.

The odds might have gone down from +175 after Boston dominated Houston’s top MLB ranked bullpen.

Boston Red Sox                       +175

Houston Astros                       +300

However, bettors shouldn’t discount the Astros at +300. Houston won the World Series last year because they’re one of the top pitching and hitting teams in baseball.

They’ve also got one of the best managers. A.J. Hinch will ensure a competitive series. If Houston beats the Red Sox and wins the American League Pennant, they might jump ahead of the Dodgers and become the World Series favorites.

Pay per head agents must set max betting limits on both. Right now, most World Series future bets should be on the Red Sox because they were the top team during the regular season.

Bookies should be cautious, though. If baseball’s taught us anything, it’s that the slightest change can determine the course of the entire World Series.

Take the safe approach and set max betting limits on all 4 teams.
