What are you looking for when finding the best MLB betting opportunities? We at SportsTips have you covered, as we’ve got a few recommendations for what you should consider when betting on the 2021 MLB season. Here are a few of our top choices for futures bets you’ll enjoy the most.
The Nats’ Comeback
The Washington Nationals fell apart a year after their 2019 World Series victory. Juan Soto had a strong season, so expect him to help lead the Nats back into NL East contention. You can also expect Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, and Patrick Corbin to lead the rotation in 2021. The Nationals have a +3500 line to win the World Series in 2021.
The Angels’ Rise
The Los Angeles Angels have a +4000 line for the World Series, but there’s a chance their odds will improve. Anthony Rendon, Mike Trout, and Albert Pujols are all great talents, but there’s a chance that Shohei Ohtani may go back to being the two-way player he was at the start of his American career.
What’s With the South Siders?
The Chicago White Sox have +1400 odds, as Luis Robert and Tim Anderson are looking to lead the South Siders to October success. But there are a few variables that could impact the White Sox, including how well new manager Tony La Russa can work alongside the rest of the team. Whether top prospect Andrew Vaughn will be a part of the team and whether starting pitcher Michael Kopech will return could also influence their odds.
The New York Yankees make for one of the best MLB betting choices at +550. Gerrit Cole is coming back, and Blake Snell is also joining the Yankees’ rotation. But there is a need to fill in the rest of the rotation, which may be a challenge now that Charlie Morton has signed with Atlanta. Whether James Paxton or Masahiro Tanaka will return is uncertain.

Will the Blue Jays Blossom?
There exists uncertainty as to whether or not the Toronto Blue Jays will return to the Rogers Centre in 2021. But the team could be an appealing upset special at +3500. The kids’ table trio of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, and Cavan Biggio will make the Blue Jays more interesting. A solid rotation with Hyun Jin Ryu, Robbie Ray, and Tanner Roark will help the Blue Jays take that next step and challenge the Yankees in the AL East.
Who’s Returning to the Astros?
The Houston Astros have a +1800 line to win the 2021 World Series, but that could improve based on what happens in free agency. George Springer and Michael Brantley are both on the free agent market as of November 2020. There’s a chance they might return to the Astros, which would quickly boost their status. The Astros will be heavily motivated to win it all in 2021 and prove that they don’t need to use any questionable tricks to succeed.
Can the Reds Grow?
The Cincinnati Reds have a +3000 line, but that total could improve if Trevor Bauer returns. While Michael Lorenzen proved to be a standout for the Reds last year and could become a starting pitcher, Bauer’s ability to return will be a concern of value.
