Who will hit a home run and claim the 2015 World Series title?

After the San Francisco Giants claimed their 3rd World Series title in 5 seasons with a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals, bookmakers and punters alike are already planning ahead for the next campaign. The bookies have made the LA Dodgers clear favorites to win the Commissioner’s Trophy, on 15/2, alongside the Washington Nationals who are at the same price. This will be music to the ears of fans, but neutral baseball betting punters will probably be scratching their heads a little at it. So why do the Dodgers represent a riskier Super Bowl pick than the odds would suggest?

Well for one thing they last won it in 1988. It would be ridiculous to claim that they haven’t had success in the intervening years, but the biggest trophy of all has eluded them consistently for more than a generation. Furthermore they do not really seem to have improved the squad that challenged, but fell short, two seasons ago. A team like the Red Sox has also not made major additions, but they already had a World Series winning roster. Meanwhile the likes of the Yankees, at 22/1, have really moved to make their squad stronger in the past season. None of this means you should avoid gambling on LA to win, just that it is no sure thing, making Hot Shot a better bet if you want a guaranteed payout.

You are almost certain to win yourself some money by playing this baseball-themed five-reel slot machine on sites like www.GamingClub.com – because there are both wild (the baseball) and scatter (the trophy) icons on the reels to help you do so. They are joined by the likes of players (pitchers and hitters), a catchers’ mitt and baseball cap and a variety of delicious snacks of the kind you can buy at an MLB match (and which will probably have you raiding the fridge). Furthermore, if you win a coin or a cash payout, you will hear sounds of whooping fans and bats thumping baseballs – which are definite bonuses as they make each win that bit more satisfying.
