Best bets for Rays-Dodgers World Series

By Derek Carty  ( 


The Dodgers are the best team in baseball … and it’s not close.  They steamrolled an overrated San Diego Padres offense in the NLDS, ran bad but still edged out an overrated Atlanta Braves squad in the NLCS and now they face their toughest competition yet.  The Tampa Bay Rays are likely bit overrated themselves, however, and the Dodgers are once again the clear favorite.

Here’s a breakdown of the World Series from a betting perspective, including my best bet:


The Dodgers have the best offense in baseball. They have zero holes, getting above-average production out of every spot in the lineup.  Even their catcher spot (Will Smith: THE BAT X projected true talent wOBA of .335) surpasses the average non-catcher in most other teams’ lineups.  In fact, Smith’s THE BAT X wOBA is higher than all but three hitters in Tampa Bay’s lineup.  And Tampa Bay’s best hitter (Brandon Lowe) is worse than LA’s five best hitters (Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, Max Muncy and Justin Turner).
