Today I placed a futures bet on the World Series and I also took a 2 team parlay for Opening Night on Thursday. The casino did not have the projected wins bets so I have to go to the Strip either tomorrow or Wednesday (or early Thursday) to make those bets. There were the first sports wagers I have made since I think either early March or February.
I’m really conflicted ... I’m an Orioles fan (bigger Red Wing fan now a days), but the Pete Rose thing has always bothered me and the steroids didn’t sit well (that being said MLB did nothing about it for so long all these guys should get in, Bonds was great before roids) and the Astros/Red Sox thing which to me is worse than Rose and Steroids put together. I have a lot of family out west that are As, Giants and Dodger fans (the Dodgers should have at least two World Series wins and I would have erased the Astros from history but that’s me).
I think the pandemic and the shorter season has me willing to reconsider. 162 games is sooooo long. Football sells the dream you have a chance every year, baseball not so much. I don’t like our odds but I will probably try and catch some games if I can.
