Gee Whizz!

Who is going to win the 2104 World Series?

Current standings @ 09.00 hrs BST 15th July 2014 for the methods in current use.  

 TheBaseballTipper 2014  -10.57 pts 

Outstanding bets for TheBaseballTipper 2014  (0.1 pt each LA Angels @ 14-1, Atlanta @ 16-1Milwaukee @ 20-1 and Detriot @ 13-2 to win the World Series).

TUB  -1,299.57 pts 

From the above outstanding bets you'd think that with two division leaders and two Wild Card spot teams, one of which is on the hottest streak in MLB right now, we'd be in with a pretty good shot at the title.

That doesn't factor in the favourites from either the American League, Oakland, who are currently the bookies favourites, or the Dodgers in the National League who are the pundits favourites.

They are both involved in a power struggle with the team in second place. Oakland are tussling with the Angels & the Dodgers are battling San Francisco.  I think the All-Star break was just what the Giants needed and I expect them to win the National League West and I expect the Dodgers to take a National League Wild Card ticket.

The Angels are notoriously slow starters and now that they have got going I think they will win the American League West and Oakland will take a Wild Card spot. Now that's not to say that Oakland won't win the American League but @ 5-2 to do so, I think they are way too short. 

Other Leagues:

American League East:

Baltimore on the wire!

American League Central:

Detroit will stagger over the line in front of

Cleveland who take the second Wild Card berth in the American League for the second year running.

National League East:

Atlanta, too much experience and class for

Washington who take a Wild Card spot.

National League Central:


Initially the strategy for betting on these outcomes will be to have a small 0.1 pt bet on the longest priced selection whenever we have a winner and the bet size will probably increase, as it did last year, the closer we get to and during the Post Season.

Once again this will not be for the faint of heart.  Your whole 50pt bankroll will be at risk towards the end of the MLB season unless we have managed to win the 5 point target earlier.  We have plenty of time, but were looking a bit like the Yankees, a class act who are too far behind at half-way.

Let's Hope We Win 5!
