Expert Picks and Predictions for the 2017 World Series

Jim Turvey Houston Astros’s Jim Turvey went bold, picking the Houston Astros (+1,200) to win the World Series this upcoming season. He really likes what they did during the offseason, where the Astros reinforced the offense by hooking in Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran and Josh Reddick.

Turvey also adds that Houston has the starting rotation, led by Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers, to combine with its potent offense. And for those wondering, Turvey predicts the Los Angeles Dodgers (+700) the one losing to the Astros in the World Series.

The Arizona Republic

Dan Bickley Chicago Cubs
Paola Boivin Boston Red Sox
Nick Piecoro Boston Red Sox
Bob McManaman Chicago Cubs

These baseball mavens at The Arizona Republic mostly see a World Series matchup between the Chicago Cubs (+375) and Boston Red Sox (+600), with experts Dan Bickley and Bob McManaman picking the former as the winner. The other two sided with the latter, but Nick Piecoro had Boston beating the above-mentioned Dodgers, instead of the Cubs.

These picks really just goes to show how unpredictable this upcoming MLB season is going to be.

EXPERT PREDICTION Cleveland Indians vs Washington Nationals

The folks over here at turned to a totally different direction, not picking the Cubs, Red Sox or Dodgers. They went all-in on the Cleveland Indians (+600) and Washington Nationals (+1,200) as this year’s World Series championship match. No winner was predicted, however.

The most surprising pick of the two are the Nationals, of course. They, and the Mariners, are the only teams in MLB history to have yet to make an appearance in the Fall Classic. But Washington might finally be able to do so behind two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and a powerhouse offense.
