Top Pick to Win the 2023 World Series

The 2021 World Series winners, Atlanta Braves, will be looking for their second win in the past three seasons. One of the reasons to be bullish on the Braves chances is because the ATL finished the season with a 104-58 record.

Atlanta is also the most complete baseball team in the majors. The ATL boasts the likely NL MVP in Ronald Acuna Jr. The rest of the lineup is daunting. Marcell Ozuna hits DH and first baseman Matt Olson scored a .283 batting average and hit 54 home runs with 139 RBIs.

The rotation is solid. Max Fried and Charlie Morton are both on the 15-day DL. No worries because Spencer Strider won 20 games and posted a 3.86 ERA. Bryce Elder won 12 games with a 3.81 ERA.

The bullpen boasts a 3.81 ERA. Heading into the postseason, the chalk is the top pick to win the World Series.

Second Pick to Win the 2023 World Series

The Houston Astros bullpen has a 3.56 ERA. The bullpen’s low Team ERA is one of the reasons to back Houston to win the American League. When the BP performs, Houston wins because Justin Verlander, Framber Valdez, and Christian Javier have incredible playoff experience.

The batting lineup is solid, like always. Jose Altuve hit better than .300 this season. As Altuve goes, so goes the lineup. Give the Astros a massive shot to win the 2023 World Series.

Third Pick to Win the 2023 World Series

2022 World Series runner ups to the Houston Astros, Philadelphia had no shot of beating Atlanta and winning NL East. But the Phils proved they were much more than a 1-season wonder by securing a wildcard berth.

Philadelphia should have zero trouble beating the Miami Marlins in the wildcard round and making it to the NL Divisional Playoffs. Then it’s a matter of getting lucky against the Atlanta Braves. If the Phillies can pull off the win versus Atlanta, no other team in the MLB Postseason, not the D’Backs, not the Brewers, and not even the Dodgers, will be beat Philadelphia in the NLCS.

Top Underdog Pick to Win the 2023 World Series

Texas has a tough wildcard series versus the Tampa Bay Rays. However, if the Rangers can get by the Rays, beating the Orioles in the AL Divisional Round is possible.

The key will be how Nathan Eovaldi and Jordan Montgomery throw. Eovaldi was fantastic during the regular season when striking out 132 and posting a 3.63 ERA. Montgomery struck out 166 and posted a 3.20 ERA. Jordan has control issues at times. So Montgomery must stay focused.

If he does, the Rangers will win plenty of playoff games because closer Aroldis Chapman remains one of the best in the biz. Also, the batting lineup, led by 33 home runs, 96 RBIs, and .327 batting average short stop Corey Seager, is great.
