Twins World Series Odds
Year in and year out the Minnesota Twins continue to contend for the AL Central Division title and a World Series berth, even though they are a small market franchise. Even after the trade of Johan Santana prior to the 2008 season, the Twins were able to compete in the AL Central division and be a contender for the World Series. In 2009 expectations will be much higher for the Twins, as they will look to win the World Series for the first time since 1991. The batting order is led by former MVP, and fellow Canadian Justin Morneau, young catcher Joe Mauer, and right fielder Micheal Cuddyer. These three individuals bring power and provide tough matchups for many pitchers in the American League. Also mixed into the line-up are many youngsters with speed, such as left fielder Denard Span, centre fielder Carlos Gomez, and second baseman Alexei Casilla. Minnesota should be able to score runs many different ways, as they have a great mix of power, speed, and players with good batting averages. This makes the Twins a threat to anyone they may face during the year, and as a postseason or World Series opponent. However, Minnesota has many question marks with its pitching staff. The starters are youthful, and for the most part inexperienced, with Nick Blackburn, Kevin Slowey and Glen Perkins expected to take on key roles. Francisco Liriano just finished his first season after Tommy John Surgery, and will need to be effective for the Twins to compete. The bullpen is also young, but does consist of star closer Joe Nathan and set man Jesse Crain. In 2009, a lot of Minnesota’s success rides on their young pitching holding up and being able to get games to the back end of their bullpen. All in all, expect some high scoring games for the Twins at the Metrodome this season.
Picking the Minnesota to win the World Series in 2009 is somewhat of a risky bet, which is exemplified in the odds of +2500 given to the Twins. That means that for every $100 bet for the Minnesota Twins to win the 2009 World Series at the current odds, a total of $2600 would be won. However, the Twins have always been competitive in the tough AL Central, and should be again this year, making a bet on the Twins very reasonable. Manager Ron Gardenhire is very good at getting the most out of his young talent, and will have to do it again this year. With the high end bats, and the excellent back end in their bullpen, the Twins should be able to hold leads late in games. Therefore, a bet on the Twins to win the 2009 World Series, at odds of +2500, would be an excellent selection as it would net a high payout, and could very easily take place.
