The Phillies progressed top of the NL East with the best win percentage of the entire country, just ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays, themselves a 9/2 shot (Betdaq) for World Series glory. The New York Yankees qualified as the strongest 2nd place in the AL and in fact have the 3rd strongest regular season record out of everyone. Last year’s winners, the Yankees, are 7/2 with Boylesports to repeat the act and you wouldn’t fancy getting in their way.
Both LA teams, the Dodgers and the Angels, were (losing) participants in last year’s Division Championships but this year both have failed to even qualify for the Division series. Cincinnati Reds have turned around a sub 0.500 win record of 2009 to finish top of the NL Central but Stan James have made them 16/1 outsiders for eventual World Series fame.
The postseason gets underway today as Tampa Bay entertain Texas, live on ESPN America at 17.30. Tampa Bay are 4/5 (Boylesports) to get off to a winning start while Texas are 5/4 (Bet365) to grab a vital away win.
