Both the American and National Leagues in this season’s MLB are expected to produce a number of sides capable of competing for the pennant (and of going on to win the World Series) and already speculation and betting on those teams has begun. In particular the East and West Divisions of the National League look likely to produce really strong candidates for the League pennant, but also for the World Series itself, and when it comes to the East Division the strongest look to be the Braves, the Phillies and the Nationals.
The latter currently lead the betting, with odds of 7/2 to win the NL, with the Braves on 8/1 and the Phillies 12/1. The Nationals have a young-ish side though, and time will tell if they are able to build on last season’s East Division win to take the League pennant. The West is also expected to be strong, with two big sides in the LA Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants, slugging it out. The Dodgers have the expensive payroll, but the Giants have the World Series, so this should be a fascinating heavyweight battle. When it comes to the Central Division, the Cincinnati Reds are firm favourites, and with odds of just 4/1 for the League pennant at many sites, they should not be overlooked.
Given the number of teams in realistic contention some will prefer to let some of the season play out and then make their bets. This way you can avoid expensive mistakes, and there is always a game like Hot Shot at an online casino such as Jackpot City, who you can finds at http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk/mobile-casino/ to amuse you while you wait.
