Three Potentially Profitable MLB Future Bets For This Season

With another major league baseball season less than two weeks away, there are some great future bets fans can place to make a long term profit this season.

Between the lockout and big signings and trades, it’s been an offseason to remember as the dynamic of the entire league has changed noticeably.

If you want to make money on an MLB future bet it’s all about thinking outside the box and digging beyond the basics.

 

1. Seattle Mariners “Yes” To Make Playoffs +175

The Mariners have springboarded a 90-72 2021 season in order to greatly build up their strength as Opening Day 2022 fast approaches.

They signed reigning American League Cy Young Robbie Ray and traded for All-Star second baseman and outfielder Adam Frazier in addition to outfielder Jesse Winker and third baseman Eugenio Suarez.

Despite the Mariners impressive record last season, their offensive numbers were some of the worst in major league baseball. Seattle’s front office knew exactly what it needed to do in order to put the team’s two decade long playoff drought to rest and get back to October ball.

The addition of Frazier, Winker and Suarez will inject Seattle’s offense with an ability to produce consistent runs that simply was not there in 2021. There already existed some great talent for Seattle in players like Mitch Haniger, Ty France and J.P. Crawford so the new position players for Seattle are only going to elevate the Mariners’ offense as a whole.

The M’s play in one of the best divisions in baseball in the American League West as they’ll have to contend with the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers who will all be playing to win this season. The Mariners have historically been the laughing stock of the big leagues, but this is the year where it all comes together for Seattle.

The expanded MLB playoff combined with the new talent added to this team will propel them to the postseason. The fact that this team is being underestimated is a great thing for bettors as they can cash in on what will be a winning ball club in 2022.

 

2. Blue Jays Most Team Wins +700

Any baseball fan knows what a force the Toronto Blue Jays are expected to be this season. They have a top five offense in the MLB led by the force of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. which has now added All-Star third baseman Matt Chapman. Reliable starting pitchers Kevin Gausman and Yusei Kikuchi join the rotation.

This team is stacked from top to bottom and they’ve slingshot themselves into the World Series conversation as they now own 2nd best odds to win the AL Pennant at +550.

The only team ahead of Toronto in odds for most team wins is the LA Dodgers whose addition of MVP first baseman Freddie Freeman has made them the overwhelming World Series favorite at the moment.

However, the Blue Jays may have an advantage that no American team does. Canada’s vaccine mandates require all international teams traveling into their country to either be vaccinated or not travel internationally with their team.

This would make it so that any unvaccinated players would have to sit out, putting the Blue Jays at an even greater advantage than their formidable roster already provides.

The sky’s the limit for the Blue Jays this season and there’s no reason why they can’t surpass the Dodgers for most team wins in MLB.

 

3. Rafael Devers 2022 RBI Leader +1400

Since coming up in 2017, Rafael Devers has been an absolute force for the Boston Red Sox. He’s a lifetime .279 hitter who has received MVP votes in two consecutive eligible seasons.

In 2021, Devers earned his first All-Star nod in addition to winning a Silver Slugger award as he hit .279 with 38 home runs and 113 runs batted in. Devers is right in his prime as he is 25 years old going into his 5th full season in the majors.

The Red Sox have one of the best offenses in baseball and it’s now even better with the arrival of All-Star infielder Trevor Story. Story’s game is going to elevate the Red Sox as a unit and this is going to make a middle of the order guy like Devers that much more dangerous to opposing pitchers.

Devers finished 4th in RBI in the AL 2021, just 8 below the Royals’ Salvador Perez for league leader. The Red Sox’s new offensive addition, coupled with Devers being in the prime of his career, will propel him to finishing as major league leader in RBI for the 2022 regular season.

The value of this bet is too great to pass up on and it only requires one to have faith in a player who has consistently shown that he can drive in runs in bunches and be the motor of his team’s offense.
