Who Will Win The 2018 MLB World Series?

Who Will Win The 2018 MLB World Series?
The two deepest clubs in Major League Baseball clash to determine the 2018 World Series. This year's Fall Classic appears too close to call. Both the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers feature incredible pitching staffs, batting depth and defense. The Red Sox enter game one as favorites, after trouncing the Astros, but the Dodgers shouldn't be taken lightly after defeating the hottest team in baseball for the National League pennant.

Boston Red Sox Betting Preview

Boston compiled the seventh best win total in Major League Baseball history and the third best victory mark since the 162-game season was implemented in 1961. The BoSox’s incredible 108-54 regular season was the best since the Seattle Mariners tied the record with a 116-win campaign in 2001.

The Red Sox accomplished this feat before eliminating the New York Yankees and Houston Astros to secure their first pennant since 2013. Most considered the Red Sox favorites prior to the season due to a deep starting rotation and a batting lineup with zero weaknesses in the order. Despite critiques, the bullpen has performed well throughout the post season, eliminating the only perceived deficiency on the roster.

This club will likely go down as one of the finest teams in MLB lore, even if they fade like the Mariners at the beginning of the millennium. Home field advantage at Fenway only solidifies Boston’s status as strong World Series favorites.

Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Preview

The Dodgers road to the 2018 MLB World Series tells the tale of two seasons. Los Angeles stumbled to a 16-24 record at the beginning of the campaign, struggling without the services of Justin Turner and Corey Seager. After Turner returned, Los Angeles roared back into the playoffs with a 76-47 record the rest of the season – a 61.8% winning rate.

In the post season, the acquisition of Manny Machado has put the Dodgers over the top. He’s contributing at an MVP level, mashing homers, playing outstanding defense, baserunning aggressively and even bunting on two strikes to spark a rally. Ace Clayton Kershaw has shook his playoff curse, while Yasiel Puig and Cody Bellinger knock clutch dingers when needed.

Despite serving as underdogs, the Los Angeles Dodgers shouldn’t be taken lightly. Similar to Boston, L.A.’s batting order features zero weaknesses. Like Red Sox ace Chris Sale, Clayton Kershaw could start games one, four and seven to stymie Boston sluggers. A single win at Fenway is all L.A. needs to turn this series on its head.

MLB World Series Odds - Los Angeles Dodgers

2018 MLB World Series Prediction

Los Angeles Dodgers Win World Series In Six Games

  • Dodgers Outright Win – Bet $100 to win $125
  • Dodgers Win In Six Games – Bet $100 to win $600

The Milwaukee Brewers were the hottest team entering fall, and the Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted them in seven games to win their second consecutive pennant. Clayton Kershaw was clutch, while Manny Machado derived great pleasure from his heel turn as the sparkplug for L.A.

Obtaining Machado from the Orioles will prove the difference in this series. Manny hits well off Red Sox hitting – especially Chris Sale. Machado owns a .316 batting average over 19 at-bats against the ace. Los Angeles hitters were the second best in the MLB. They’ll find ways to produce while L.A.’s pitching depth prevents an MVP turn from Mookie Betts.
