MLB betting: the favourites to win the National League

The National League is one of the two (along with the American
one) which make up the MLB, and with the new season very close to
starting, speculation about which teams are in with a realistic shot at
the pennant has been underway in earnest for weeks now. Those interested
in betting on the issue will have been placing future bets on the
winners for almost as long, but as there will be some who have not bet
yet, it is useful to know who the favourites are. There is no question
that the Washington Nationals are listed as pre-season favourites, with
odds of 7/2, but they certainly aren’t the only team in the running.

Many people consider the LA Dodgers to be just as realistic a shot for
the National League pennant this season, and you can get 7/2 on them at
some sports betting sites. They have spent massively to build a side
which can win, not just the West Division, or the National League, but
the World Series – and the strength of their LA rivals the Angels in the
AL will surely provide further motivation. Despite not having made any
real changes to their line-up the Cincinnati Reds are also expected to
be serious contenders for the National League this year – having won the
Central Division by nine points last year.

Of course there is usually at least one unexpected team that defies form
predictions during the season, which is why it is sometimes wiser to
wait and see how teams play before actually placing your bet. In the
meantime, a game like the Hot Shot baseball slots game at an online
casino like could be a pretty good substitute,
as it offers a fine mix of baseball and betting. The graphics of pitchers,
hitters, catchers mitts and baseball field, and the audio of bat hitting ball
and cheering crowds, capture all the sights and sounds of an MLB match -
while the cheap play, $2000 top cash jackpot, nine pay lines, and presence
of a wild symbol (the burning baseball) to your chances of winning a
payout – make sure that Hot Shot delivers for both sports and gambling fans.

    I see that Addison Russell was 0-5 with 2 more K’s….if he keeps this up I would think that he’d be a candidate to drop down a level

    Its during the sesaon and they are paid millions to play here. Owners would be very upset if their star players got injured they miss the playoffs because of it. Players also have restrictions in their contracts about getting hurt while not playing for their team so they would lose money as well.
