After this weekend’s Cubs – Athletics trade pushed the A’s up to 4-1 favorites to win it all, let’s look at 3 teams that potentially still have value in that their odds still make the potential payouts favorable ones.
Angels (10-1) – They may no longer even be the favorite in their division with the haul the A’s just pulled, but I still think this team is built for October, especially if they can bolster their bullpen before the trade deadline.
Braves (12-1) – Streaking in a positive direction of late, the Braves could end up short on pitching depth, but the offense is starting to click.
Giants (15-1) - The Giants have been sliding lately, but I think what they accomplished earlier in the season is more telling of their identity as a team. Grab them at 15-1 now, before they snap off 10 straight and shoot back up to single digits.
