MLB Title Betting: Can The Blue Jays Contend?

Toronto Blue Jays Looking To Recapture Past Success

Since joining the Majors, at the start of the 1977 MLB season, the Jays have a 2,755 – 2,790 overall record. When one considers that Toronto has played in the American League East, along with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox every season, their overall record deserves respect. World Series Championships in 1992 and 1993, along with five postseason appearances, and a 41-21 playoff record, further proves the point.

Getting back  to World Series glory doesn’t come easy. Playoff magic hasn’t returned to Toronto since their ’93 Championship run as the Blue Jays have been shut out of the postseason for the past 18 seasons. Surprisingly though, the Jays have been posted as the seventh favorite at top online sportsbook Bodog with 22/1 future betting odds to win the 2012 AL Pennant.

2012 MLB AL Pennant Race: Jays Are Betting Longshots At Bodog

With two-time defending MLB home run champion José Bautista, along with solid hitting shortstop Yunel Escobar, there is reason for optimism under the Rodgers Center Sky Dome in Toronto. Add in slugger Edwin Encarnacion moving to the DH role, to make way for rising star Brett Lawrie at third base, and the Jays may be worth small futures wager at Bodog to win the American League Pennant.

Daily baseball handicapping lines, along with futures betting, as well as player and team prop wagering options, are available 24/7 at the top ranked online sportsbooks recommended here at Online Betting Canada.
