The Favorites

  • NY Yankees
  • Boston Red Sox
  • Houston Astros
  • LA Dodgers
  • Philadelphia Phillies

I have no idea why the Yankees are prohibitive favorites, but they’re certainly not my top pick to win the 2019 World Series for one big reason. New York’s pitching doesn’t quite measure up to Boston’s and definitely not Houston’s fantastic staff of both, start starting hurlers and relievers. Simply put, I’m expecting either the Red Sox – or better yet, the Astros – to win the AL Pennant in 2019.

Over in the National League, the Dodgers are favored to win their third straight NL Pennant after falling in each of the last two Fall Classics, but I’m thinking their roster-altering trade with Cincinnati is going to come back to bite them in the rear end.

Philadelphia is getting a bunch of love after acquiring Bryce Harper, but the Phils don’t look like they’re going to have enough quality pitching to get it done from where I’m sitting.


  • Atlanta
  • Milwaukee

While I’m thinking the Chicago Cubs could rise up and surprise this coming season, I’m thinking Atlanta or Milwaukee are both looking like better selections as 16/1 and 18/1 picks respectively Yasiel Puig winning the NL East and NL Central respectively.

The Brewers are among the contenders at the latest 2019 World Series Odds.

Top Longshot

  • Cincinnati

The Reds made a huge trade with the Dodgers to acquire Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig, and Alex Wood among others. I know Cincinnati won a paltry 67 games a year ago, but the NL is pretty wide open and I believe the Reds could not only challenge for their NL Central crown but to win it all.

Expert 2019 World Series Prediction

I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I like Houston as my top pick to win the 2019 World Series. Houston almost claimed back-to-back titles before falling in the American League Championship Series, but I believe their added motivation, improved roster – and elite pitching – will help put them over the top this coming season.

The Astros have at least three MVP-caliber stars and a pair of legitimate Cy Young contenders on their roster, plus they have some serious postseason experience.

I’m going with Boston as my second pick and…wait for it…Atlanta as my third and final pick to win the 2019 World Series.
