Can The San Francisco Giants Get Back To Their Winning Ways in 2017?

With the Even Year Streak Over, Can The San Francisco Giants Start An Odd Year Streak?

The San Francisco Giants won the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014, leading to a lot of their fans believing they would win it again last season. However, the streak was ended by the Chicago Cubs, who went on to win the World Series, in the NLDS.

Despite last season’s setback, the Giants and their fans feel the team is ready to start a new trend this season.

According to odds makers, the Giants have a tough road ahead of them to get back to the World Series, starting with defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title.

All odds I’ve used below are from, our top rated site for betting on baseball.

Odds To Win The NL West

  • Arizona Diamondbacks  +2000
  • Colorado Rockies  +1200
  • Los Angeles Dodgers  -195
  • San Diego Padres  +15000
  • San Francisco Giants  +225

The Giants are fortunate to play in the NL West because the only team they really have to worry about is the Dodgers. The Diamondbacks and Rockies are expected to be improved from last season, but the battle for the division crown remains between the Dodgers and Giants. Even if San Francisco can’t win the division, they should still be able to contend for a Wildcard spot.

Odds To Win NL Pennant

  • San Francisco Giants +700
  • Atlanta Braves +5000
  • Chicago Cubs +185
  • New York Mets +750
  • Colorado Rockies +2500
  • Los Angeles Dodgers +375
  • Miami Marlins +3600
  • Washington Nationals +500

The Giants have the fourth best odds to win the National League pennant, which means they have a decent chance of making the World Series. If they can avoid playing the Cubs in the playoffs, a return trip to the World Series is a distinct possibility.

Odds To Win The World Series

  • Boston Red Sox +550
  • Chicago Cubs +475
  • Cleveland Indians +700
  • Los Angeles Dodgers +700
  • Washington Nationals +1000
  • San Francisco Giants +1200
  • Houston Astros +1200
  • New York Mets +1200

There are five teams with better odds of winning the World Series than the Giants, however, if they do manage to make it to the Fall Classic, all bets are off. The Giants pitchers, especially Madison Bumgarner, have a knack for stepping up in big games, which makes them a scary opponent for any team they face.
