There are a ton of players that have to think that they can be the World Series MVP this year. Check out our World Series MVP odds picks to cash in at Cappers Info!
Year To Date Record: 15-15 +$45
2011 Series Picks: 2-4, -$445
World Series MVP Pick #1: Albert Pujols (+500 at Wager Web Sportsbook): It happens to be that Pujols probably should have won the NLCS MVP honors. He was good enough to get the job done in that series, and he is batting well over .400 for the playoffs. It is widely publicized knowledge that the first baseman is going to be the most sought after free agent in the offseason, and what better way to guarantee perhaps over $200 million, than by coming out and beating the World Series MVP odds?
World Series MVP Pick #2: Chris Carpenter (+1200 at Wager Web Sportsbook): With the way that Manager Tony LaRussa manages his team, would it be any surprise to see Carpenter end up getting a pair of starts and a relief appearance in this postseason? It is clear that Carpenter has been the best pitcher that St. Louis has had in this entire postseason, and he had one of the best starts that we have ever seen when he shut out the Philadelphia Phillies against Roy Halladay on the road in Game 5 of the NLDS. The potential is truly there for greatness from Carpenter, and though we don’t think that there are any other pitchers out there that we would back, we know that there has to be at least a 1 in 12 chance that Carpenter claims the World Series MVP title.
World Series MVP Pick #3: Josh Hamilton (+500 at Wager Web Sportsbook): First it was Adrian Beltre who came up big with three home runs against the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS. Then it was Nelson Cruz who blasted off six times in six games in the ALCS against the Texas Rangers. Could it be Hamilton’s time to shine? There haven’t been a heck of a lot of home runs in the postseason by guys not named Beltre and Cruz for the Rangers, but we know that Hamilton is capable of doing this type of major damage as well. It’d be a fantastic story, as Hamilton would have officially completing his comeback from drug usage of the past to be a champion and a World Series MVP, and the story is just too good to pass up on. Hamilton doesn’t have a home run yet in the playoffs, but that will change before this series is said and done with.
