The Baseball World Series is the most popular baseball tournament in the United States. It has been running since 1903, and has consistently drawn full stadiums, as well as been a top rated television event. Despite the name, the Baseball World Series in fact consists only of teams from the United States. The two main leagues in the country, The American League and National League, put forward a champion team, the two of which have a best of seven show down. The winning team is crowned as the best the United States.
The Baseball World Series is an extremely hotly contested tournament. There have been very few instances of a single team dominating consecutively, which has led to extremely exciting and unpredictable occasions. The only instance of a single team winning two Baseball World Series tournaments occurred in 1999 and 2000, when the New York Yankees took home the trophy on both occasions. There has never been another case of consecutive wins. It is for this reason, among others, that the Baseball World Series is a favourite for sports bet makers.
World Series Bet making
Tens of thousands of baseball fans place mobile bets on the Baseball World Series, and the tournaments that lead up to it. Previously the teams that had the best win loss records of each league would automatically advance to the Baseball World Series, from 1969, however, a championship series has been held to determine which team of each league would be advancing. Both the championship series and the World Baseball League feature at online bookmaker websites.
A bet making approach offered by some bookmakers is to predict a winning team for the Baseball World Series, as well as placing teams for the championship series. The bet maker can earn payouts if favourite teams perform well, and not just if chosen teams end up winning overall. Payouts will always be best, however, for predicting teams accurately in the top three winning positions.
Depending on the online bookmaker in question, there are a number of baseball betting options available. Many bet makers will simply place a bet on a single favourite team to win, which they hope will advance through the championship series, and eventually be crowned kings in the Baseball World Series. Such a bet offers good payouts, especially if the bet is placed prior to the championship series starting. Once the championship series is underway and teams begin to advance, however, the odds are very likely to change, depending on the performance of each team.
The Baseball World Serious is infamous for having a long running history of major upsets, underdog teams stealing the show, and even completely unexpected events disrupting proceedings. One of the most notorious events was a severe earthquake that occurred during the 1989 game. The devastating earthquake struck as the teams were warming up, and the tournament was forced to be postponed. In the aftermath of the earthquake commentator Al Michaels, who had been narrating the game, took on the improvised job of a news reporter, explaining to bewildered television viewers what had occurred.
