MLB Future Bets Hang In The Balance As Season Heads For Home

The Major League Baseball season has just six weeks left, and the gambling world will be keeping a close eye on games going down the stretch. Even teams that have long been eliminated from playoff contention will play meaningful games for gamblers looking to cash in on future bets.

Before the season starts, thousands of gamblers make their way to Las Vegas sports books, some come annually and make a vacation out of the trip, while other simply fly in for a weekend to place their bets. In most cases, the bets center around team win totals, and World Series winners.

The Yankees, Red Sox, Phillies, Giants, and Rangers were all among the favorites to win the World Series when the season began, and none have disappointed. While every year there seems to be a favored team that comes up short, this season it looks as though all the favorites will make the playoffs.

The Phillies have the biggest division lead, and are cruising towards the playoffs since acquiring Hunter Pence at the trade deadline. The Rangers have a comfortable lead in the American league West, but the Angels are staying close enough that it could become a race down the stretch.

Boston and New York are battling for the American league East crown, and the two teams will be close to their season win totals set by odds makers before the year started. No matter which team falls short of the division title, the odds are strong that they both will make the playoffs.

Of the aforementioned teams, only San Francisco looks like they have a legitimate chance of missing out on the playoffs. The defending champion Giants trail Arizona by 2.5 games in the NL West. The Giants have recently placed Carlos Beltran on the disabled list, dealing a major blow to their offense, and making gamblers sweat out a repeat division title.

The two other teams that appear headed for post season play are Detroit and Atlanta, with the Braves holding a seven game lead over the Giants in the wild card chase. The Tigers are clinging to a 2.5 game lead over the pesky Indians. Cleveland has played much better since they traded for former Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez.
