The 2015 Fall Classic is here. World Series live TV and online coverage will get underway on Thursday, Oct. 27 and, if all seven games are needed, will conclude on Nov. 4. Fox Sports 1 and Fox will carry the action nationally while fans on the go will be able to catch every pitch live online through Fox Sports Go.
Not many experts predicted this match-up when the championship series’ started, as a matter of fact both teams, the Royals and Mets, were pretty good sized underdogs in the last round. However as they say, that’s why the games are played on the field and not on paper. The Royals defeated the Toronto Blue Jays in 6 games, a team many experts picked to win the World Series, while the Mets swept away the heavily favored Chicago Cubs in four. Now one of these teams is on the brink of a title and one will be left wondering what could have been.
Las Vegas sports books have this series listed at EVEN money, or -110 for both sides. We here at Sports Odds Daily like both teams, however in the end the edge falls to that incredible Mets pitching staff. These guys are peaking at the right time and have been phenomenal in the 2015 playoffs. The experts who said the Nationals had the best pitching staff in the bigs back in March didn’t see this coming. Win or lose, the Mets staff could be one of the best for many years to come.
