Phillies tipped for 2011 World Series success

Online bookmakers currently show Philadelphia just ahead of the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees in the race for post-season glory.

Thursday 28th April 2011



The 2011 edition of Major League Baseball began late last month and numerous online sportsbetting sites have already installed the Philadelphia Phillies as favourites to win the 107th edition of the World Series come October. Philadelphia is one of the oldest teams in the National League but won only its second World Series title in 2008 before being defeated a year later in the best-of-seven final by the New York Yankees. Led by manager Charlie Manuel and featuring talented players such as Ryan Howard and Placido Polanco, the Phillies have won 15 of their first 23 games and currently have the third best record this season after the National League’s Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. Bet365.com and BoyleSports.com list the Pennsylvania franchise at odds of 9/4 to win the 2011 World Series before Bwin.com with 23/10 and StanJames.com offering 5/2. Philadelphia re-signed left-handed pitcher Cliff Lee in the offseason while extending right-hander Jose Contreras’ deal for a further two seasons and now punters can get odds of 13/5 from BlueSq.com and 888Sport.com on the Phillies triumphing at the 2011 World Series. Similarly, PaddyPower.com, ToteSport.com and BetFred.com have Philadelphia at odds of 11/4 to win a third World Series this year followed by WBX.com showing 143/50 and BetDaq.com, SkyBet.com, 32RedBet.com, Bodog.com, VictorChandler.com, Intertops.com and Betfair.com listing 3/1. Despite only winning ten of its first 22 games, the Boston Red Sox are also in contention to win the 2011 World Series with VictorChandler.com and Bet365.com showing the Massachusetts side at odds of 9/2. The American League Red Sox won the 2004 World Series to end an 86-year drought and then followed up this success by triumphing again in 2007. However, the side managed by Terry Francona missed out on the post-season last time out and have responded by signing star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez alongside outfielder Carl Crawford. Bwin.com currently has Boston at odds of 19/4 to win the 2011 World Series in advance of StanJames.com, BoyleSports.com and ToteSport.com with 5/1 and BlueSq.com, PaddyPower.com and 888Sport.com listing 11/2. At the far end of the spectrum, bettors can get odds of 6/1 at 32RedBet.com, BetFred.com, WBX.com, BetDaq.com, Intertops.com and Betfair.com on the Red Sox winning an eighth World Series title this season while Bodog.com has 13/2 before SkyBet.com with 7/1. In the same five-team East division of the American League as Boston, the New York Yankees were knocked out of the post-season last year by the Texas Rangers but have recovered to win twelve of their initial 20 games this time out. New York manager Joe Girardi recently signed a new three-year deal worth a reported nine million dollars and now the 2009 World Series champions are at odds of 9/2 with Bet365.com to win a 28th championship this season. Further down the spectrum, Bwin.com has the ‘Bronx Bombers’ at odds of 19/4 to win it all this season before StanJames.com with 5/1 and 888Sport.com, VictorChandler.com, BoyleSports.com, BlueSq.com, Intertops.com and ToteSport.com listing 6/1. However, with Boston and a resurgent Tampa Bay Rays in the same division, the Yankees may find it hard to even make the post-season. Despite this, WBX.com, Bodog.com, PaddyPower.com and 32RedBet.com have New York at odds of 13/2 to win the 2011 World Series while Betfair.com and BetDaq.com are going for 34/5 in advance of BetFred.com offering 7/1 and SkyBet.com showing 15/2.
