The Boston Red Sox are one of the most well-known baseball sides, and probably one of the few that non-sports fans could actually name, but name and reputation are no guarantee of success on the field in baseball or any other sport. The Red Sox were one of the hot favourites for last season’s MLB, but fell a long way short of expectations – as they failed to even make the play-offs. This means that the team is under considerable pressure to produce better than last time out, but are they worth a bet in this season’s MLB?
Well the Red Sox can hardly fare worse than they did last season, which was the team’s worst for close to fifty years, and they have replaced their manager – with Ben Cherrington taking over from Bobby Valentine – as well as letting some famous faces depart, in the likes of Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford. What all this suggests is a team in transition, which is perhaps reflected in odds of around 14 or 15/1 for the American League. It’s not a crazy bet, but the redevelopment of the team should be borne in mind, but the Red Sox have varying odds for the World Series itself. You can get odds of 25/1 on them, which might be worth a punt, but for a team still rebuilding after a disastrous season the World Series is a big ask.
If you can’t resist betting on the Red Sox, you might want to combine it with a few spins of Hot Shot, a baseball themed slot available at androidcasino.com.au. Hot Shot really does reproduce the baseball experience, with visuals of a lush green baseball field, and audio of murmuring, cheering crowds and the smack of bat hitting ball. Factor in the baseball reel icons (including catchers mitts, pitchers and home run icons) and you have a thorough baseball flavour, allied to all the best things about slots. That means you get the great payouts as well, meaning you might recoup some of the money you lost on the Red Sox!
