MLB 2021 Preview: Season Predictions, Futures Wagers & Why Rays Are The Bet
MLB Opening Day is nearly upon us and we're going to be treated to a full season, which feels like a huge relief after last year's short season. OddsChecker's very own Jamie Kelton is joined by MLB analyst and handicapper John Laghezza to look ahead at the upcoming season.
John guides us through his strategy to betting baseball, where to find the value and how sharp bettors prosper. They debate the teams which they think could have a standout year and also reveal the teams which they think could struggle to meet expectations this year.
Not only that but John breaks down his best futures bet, including the team who he thinks offer a huge price to win the World Series.
Jamie and John also take an early look at that Opening Day slate and see if there is any value on the board, before we get the full news on lineups.
