For at least a dozen years in a row, I made sure to bet the Dodgers would win the World Series. If I didn’t place the bet in Las Vegas myself, I would ask someone who was going to Vegas to lay down a bet for me. It was almost always dead money because I had no idea the boys wouldn’t even made it to the Fall Classic.
I also had no idea I didn’t have to rely on making a 300-mile drive. All I had to do was visit a convenient sports betting site click here and lay my action down in the comfort of my home.
Do you ever bet on the boys to win the World Series? Sometimes I’ll even bet on the Dodgers to win an individual game. Of course, it all depends on the odds that you get. The way the Dodgers have plowed through the league, you might not get very good odds, but you can also lay down some action on player’s accomplishments.
At the beginning of the season I predicted Yasiel Puig would have a breakout year, and that would have been a good bet to lay down. Betting on Justin Turner and Clayton Kershaw to have good years would not have been a get rich quick bet because they were both healthy and looking like they would repeat the accomplishments of 2016.
That said, who could have foreseen the monster season coming from Cody Bellinger ? If you had placed a bet on Cody to be called up, and to hit 20 home runs, you would be in pretty good shape today.
We’re past the half way mark and a list of unpredictable accomplishments that would have yielded some good payback on bets have emerged: Alex Wood with ten straight victories to open the season, Justin Turner leading the leagues in batting average, the team having seven players with ten home runs or more.
What bets on individual players would you lay down for the second half of the season? How about the Dodgers once again having four players with 20 home runs? How about Chris Taylor finishing the year with the most stolen bases and the most grand slams on the team? Do you take that bet?
It turns out this year I didn’t make that bet for the Dodgers to win the World Series. That’s probably why they will.
