    2021 MLB World Series Picks:

    Boston Red Sox to Win World Series (+4500) and AL Pennant (+2200)
    Cincinnati Reds to Win World Series (+3500) and NL Pennant (+1800)

2021 MLB World Series PicksMost MLB teams are closing in on playing their tenth game of the 2021 regular season.

Keep in mind, the MLB has returned to a full 162-game schedule this year. There’s still plenty of MLB left and it’s never too late to bet on MLB futures, such as the 2021 World Series winner.

We’ve seen some early movement on some of the top contenders, but there’s plenty of value left.

Top Contenders to Win the 2021 MLB World Series

There are three teams paying less than 10/1 to win the World Series.

The Dodgers (+325) are favored, while the Yankees (+600) are next up in the market. The Padres (+750) are off to a hot start, but they’ll need to contend with LAD in the NL West.

We could see the odds on the Yankees fade if they continue to struggle. It’s still extremely early, but at 4-5 (4th in the AL East), MLB bettors are already getting a bit concerned.

Best Bets to Win the 2021 MLB World Series

I’m going to be picking one team from the American League and one from the National League.

I’ll also be betting on these teams to win the AL/NL pennants. In a perfect world, these two teams will meet in the World Series, guaranteeing a big profit at the end of the 2021 MLB season.

However, I’m backing a couple value plays, so I’m not counting on both winning their conference.

It wasn’t long ago that the Red Sox were priced around +5500 to win the World Series.

After a fast 6-3 start, the odds on Boston are steaming in, but you can still bet them at 45/1 to win it all, which is way too high of a price. Boston are also paying +2200 to win the AL pennant.

Their biggest competition outside of the AL East will come from the Astros, Indians and Angels.

The offense has been lethal to start the season. J.D. Martinez is hitting .472 with 5 HRs and 16 RBIs already. The Red Sox rank #2 in runs scored per game (6.44 RPG).

Pitching has been average, as they rank #16 in team earned runs against per game (4.33). However, adding an ace before the trade deadline isn’t out of the question if they continue winning.

Boston lack depth, but if Martinez and Rafael Devers stay healthy, they can contend.

The Reds started the season 6-1, but are now sitting at 6-3 (1st in the NL Central). The Reds have been getting closer in recent years and they need to make a run soon.

They’re also paying +1800 odds to win the National League in 2021.

Joey Votto doesn’t have too many years left in him. Votto hasn’t been very productive this season yet either, though, as he’s hitting .162 with zero home runs and only 3 RBIs.

Tyler Naquin (5 HRs and 14 RBIs) has been playing great to start the season, but he can’t keep this pace up. Nick Castellanos (4 HRs and 7 RBIs) has been hitting for power as well.

The Reds lead the majors in scoring (7.33 RPG). If they can keep that up, they’ll be able to contend with anyone in the NL. However, like Boston, the Reds lack a true ace at the top of the rotation.

Adding an ace before the trade deadline would go a long way.

Why You Should Bet on These Two MLB Longshots

The reason we’re getting such a good price on the Red Sox and Reds is because both teams are lacking on the mound. However, there are typically always an ace or two available at the deadline.

Both teams have shown they can hit the baseball.

2021 MLB World Series Futures Betting Lines

The odds to win the 2021 MLB World Series are constantly moving.

There’s a good chance some of the favorites in the market will be priced more attractively at some point later in the season, which is why it’s often not worth taking a price below 8/1.

It only takes one extended losing streak to get a better price on an MLB futures bet.

On the other hand, if the Red Sox and Reds keep trending in the right direction, you’re never going to get a better price than now on them. At these prices, both teams are a decent hedge as well if you bet on any of the favorites already. Both teams are an ace away from contending in 2021.
