2018 World Series Odds – Why Boston Should Win the 2018 World Series
The Boston Red Sox had one of the best seasons in Major League Baseball history, and it probably could have been even better. They won 108 games, which is exactly two-thirds (.667), but on August 14 they were 86-35, which would have put them on pace for 115 victories. As the Golden State Warriors found out in their 73-9 season, sometimes it doesn’t make sense to expend too much energy trying to set records if you don’t have a championship to show for it.
The Bosox, in their first season under manager Alex Cora, come into this World Series as the favorite against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who went through this experience last year. With one of the top starting pitchers in the major leagues (Chris Sale) in addition to a pair of Cy Young winners (Rick Porcello, David Price) and a guy who has been around and is definitely COMING around at the right time (Nathan Eovaldi), the Red Sox look like they are well-equipped to go into battle.

2018 World Series Odds – CJ’s Take on the Red Sox:
Here are some of the reasons the Red Sox should win this thing:
1) THEY HAVE AN ACE WHO CAN START THREE GAMES — Chris Sale has had some issues. His fastball wasn’t overly impressive last time out in the ALCS. He’s had to go to the hospital with stomach problems. But he will have rested for nine days by the time Game 1 starts. There is at least the potential that he could start three games in this series, if Cora doesn’t leave him in all that long. Sale has very nasty stuff and amazing results – a 2.11 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 13.5 strikeouts per nine innings.
2) THEY HAVE THE TWO BEST PLAYERS ON THE FIELD — Position players, that is. JD Martinez came to Boston and immediately made his mark felt, becoming an MVP candidate with his 43 homers. However, it looks as if Mookie Betts, his teammate, is going to be the winner of this year’s MVP. Martinez has changed many games with one swing of the bat, while to use another cliche, Betts is the guy who “can beat you in so many ways.”
3) PRICE AND EOVALDI — The Red Sox could obviously use Rick Porcello (17-7) as a starter in one of these games, and Cora has also shown the inclination to use him in relief. But the team may have gotten a big boost from David Price, who registered his first post-season win in the ALCS clincher. And Eovaldi has simply been magical in this post-season, with a 1.88 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in this post-season. If he remains dependable, these guys have a rotation that measures up with just about anything.
4) THEY HAVE THE PREPONDERANCE OF FIREPOWER — No, the Red Sox didn’t lead its league in homers like the Dodgers. They didn’t set a new record like the Yankees. But they led the major leagues in categories like runs scored, hits, team batting average, on-base percentage AND slugging, which, as VietBet patrons know, means that they led in OBP as well. In other words, they’ve got some serious offense, and the Dodgers had better not have any “off-days” on the mound.
5) CORA’S PREPARED — It’s natural that new people get managerial jobs after being part of successful “programs.” Red Sox manager Alex Cora was the bench coach for the Houston Astros last year, and he had to compile some very comprehensive scouting reports on the Dodgers for the World Series. They might still be lying around somewhere. So he knows how to address and attack this opponent, and he appears to have the “horses” to get the job done.
