The Los Angeles Dodgers got the new MLB season underway against the Arizona Diamondbacks and, if you believe the bookmakers odds, the Dodgers will also be bringing the season to a close. They are the hot favourites early season to win the World Series, at just 7/1 just now, and this will inevitably ensure that they draw a great deal of the bets from baseball betting fans at this stage. It should be borne in mind though, that they are far from the only team in the World Series running.
The Detroit Tigers are another team rated as strong contenders, and they are one of three sides that you can get 10/1 on for the World Series from bookies. They certainly enjoyed a good season last year, having taken the AL Central Division title, but have not made major moves to improve their squad in the off-season. Neither have the Dodgers, with the Yankees really the only side towards the top of the odds rankings to have signed a lot of players. They were making wholesale changes to an ageing team, and with fresh blood they cannot be ruled out at 16/1. Arguably none of the teams really can be at such an early stage, which is why some fans of the MLB and gambling prefer to play Hot Shot until the season is further along.
Of course Hot Shot, a five-reel baseball slot from Microgaming found at GamingClub.com/au/online-pokies, is not the only baseball game you can find at online or mobile casino sites – but baseball fans seem to have picked it as their favourite. Perhaps this is due to the potential it offers to multiply your payout, thanks to wild and scatter symbols, or perhaps it is the $2000 top jackpot. Then again, the fantastic graphics of pitchers, catchers’ gloves, hitters and baseball caps might be the reason – or the fact that a deposit of $0.25 per line is enough to play it. Then again, it is probably a combination of all these things that has made Hot Shot the baseball game that can’t be beat.
