MLB World Series Sportsbook Betting Roundup -Oct. 28
The 2014 MLB World Series continues this Tuesday night with the San Francisco Giants on the verge of locking-up their third world title since 2010. This past Sunday night behind a dominant pitching performance by staff ace Madison Bumgarner, the Giants were able to take that all-important 3-2 edge in this best-of-seven affair with a 5-0 victory in Game 5 as 163 home favorites on 5Dimes closing MLB betting odds.
Bumgarner came into this series as a 7/1 favorite to be named MVP of this year’s championship series and he may now be a lock after pitching nine innings of shutout baseball to give his team this crucial edge.
The series now shifts back to Kansas City were the Cinderella Royals will try and take this series the distance with a win in Game 6 as 137 home favorites. The MLB betting odds on the total have been set at 7. San Francisco will send Jake Peavy to the mound as its starter on Tuesday night while the Royals will counter with Yordana Ventura. This was the same pitching matchup as in Game 2 of this series. Kansas City rolled to a 7-2 victory as a 136 home favorites to even the series at a game apiece after losing the opener 7-1 as a slight 101 underdog at home.
The Royals went on to take a 2-1 series lead with a 3-2 win in Game 3 as 117 road underdogs, but San Francisco evened the score this time around as a slight 102 underdog at home in an 11-4 romp in Game 4. The total has gone OVER in three of the five games so far.
The opening World Series price on 5Dimes futures board had this series dead even with each team’s odds to win posted at -110. The betting odds that the series went six games were set at +170 and the odds that it went the full seven games were set at +180.
If the Royals can find a way to keep this series alive with a win on Tuesday night, the deciding Game 7 is set for Wednesday night in Kansas City. While 5Dimes MLB Sportsbook has yet to set any betting odds for that contest, right now it looks like the Giants will turn to Tim Hudson as their starter for that game. The Royals have penciled-in Jeremy Guthrie as their potential starter for Game 7. These two faced each other in Game 3 with Guthrie getting the win and Greg Holland getting the save.
