After coming so agonisingly close to a National League Championship in 2020, it’s a wonder the Atlanta Braves are quite as high as +1000 to come back and win a World Series this season.
Prediction: Atlanta Braves Win 2021 World Series (+1000) – Odds via Unibet NJ
Nevertheless, those are the odds placed upon them by Unibet Sports to go and win Major League Baseball’s biggest prize in 2021, with a long-anticipated season set to open on April 1.
It was in that National League decider last year that the Braves lost out to eventual World Series winners the Los Angeles Dodgers via a 4-3 comeback that will long live in memory:
Even for the Dodgers, that would be a difficult achievement to repeat. Atlanta have two outstanding stars in Ronald Acuna Jr. and right-hander Ian Anderson, while the likes of Max Fried and Mike Soroka have so much more to offer if both can remain fit season-long.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Braves move closer in the favorites race in months’ time, meaning this presents a big opportunity to strike while the odds are high.
