2015 World Series Odds

2015 world series oddsIn spite of their 2014 American League Pennant and subsequent appearance in the Fall Classic, the Kansas City Royals opened the season as a 28 to 1 pick to win the 2015 World Series. The New York Mets were considered an even more unlikely championship contender at 33 to 1 odds. Nevertheless, the two clubs will begin their battle for the title tomorrow night at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The MLB odds makers at Bovada.lv are anticipating a tightly contested series as both teams are drawing a -110 price according to the bookmaker’s latest 2015 World Series Odds.

The Royals avoided the Wild Card game this year, winning the AL Central with a 95-67 record; however, they did not breeze their way to the World Series like a season ago. Kansas City needed five games to finish the Houston Astros in the ALDS and they eliminated Toronto in six games to win their second consecutive AL Pennant.

The Royals offense comes into this year’s Fall Classic humming, thanks in no small part to the offseason addition of Kendrys Morales and mid-season acquisition of Ben Zobrist. Morales has hit four homers and driven in 10 of KC’s 63 postseason runs while Zobrist hit .327 and posted a .376 on-base percentage in the ALDS and ALCS.

Those two and the rest of the Royals lineup with have to contend with the Mets impressive stable of young starters, which includes Jacob DeGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey.

New York’s pitching staff posted a playoff best 2.81 ERA and they held the Cubs potent lineup to a total of eight runs in four NLCS games.

MVP odds for the World Series are the Mets Daniel Murphy at +300 odds. Yeonis Cedpedes and Alcides Escobar, the ALCS MVP, are each drawing +700 odds as second choices. Murphy hit .529 while slugging an utterly ridiculous 1.294 in the NLCS and he has homered in six straight playoff games.
