Two of MLB's perennial powerhouses met in this year's World Series as the Boston Red Sox and LA Dodgers faced off to decide the 2018 World Champion.
Both teams featured a lineup of All-Stars in the field as well as on the mound, so this year's betting markets were ripe for value at the dismay of many top World Series bookmakers. Not only did the outright and series markets offer opportunity for return, but the player prop markets presented great value, including the 40/1 odds that were offered on eventual World Series MVP Steve Pearce of the Red Sox.
The Red Sox, led by the league's top offensive unit, took down the reigning champs in the Houston Astros after defeating their rival Yankees to reach their fourth World Series since 2000. The LA Dodgers fended off a rising Brewers squad after beating the surprise Atlanta Braves to reach their second consecutive championship series.
The Boston Red Sox won the title 4 games to 1 after opening as the favourites to win the 2018 World Series at 20/31 odds.
