Baseball Picks 2011

Here you will find all the latest Baseball picks for 2011, including a look at the futures market and more, all courtesy of Gambling911.com.   Last update May 31, 2011. 

In the American League East the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have finally turned things around and lead the way after a slow start to the season.  Likewise, Tampa Bay had turned it up a notch but have cooled down recently. 

At 7/1 odds, the New York Yankees have never had better value for gamblers.  At that price, it is hard to overlook New York as one of the baseball picks to win the 2011 World Series.  The payout would be $700 for every $100 bet

Now compare the Yankees value to that of the Red Sox being listed at 3/1 odds.  No way would we touch Boston at that number when they are just 6 games up from .500.

Cleveland is still hot and still well priced at 16/1 to win the 2011 World Series. 

Florida is starting to get hot with a 30-22 record at press time.  They were listed at 17/1 odds.

St. Louis was at 13/1 odds and continues to impress.

Perhaps the hottest team right now is Arizona, which has won 9 of its last 10 and 7 straight.  They had 25/1 odds of winning the 2011 World Series.  We say that is a steal based on how well they are playing now

You only have to put down a small amount of money to enjoy a nice profit with futures.  For example, a $10 bet on the Yankees would pay out $70 while a $10 bet on Arizona winning would pay $250.
