Bryce Harper Odds: World Series Game Props
Bryce Harper Odds: World Series MVP
ODDS BOOST: Caesars Sportsbook is offering an odds boost on Bryce Harper to win World Series MVP at +850. Be sure to choose that option instead of the +500 odds posted under World Series MVP odds if interested in backing Bryce.
Four years after signing the richest contract in Philadelphia team sports history, Harper has led a team of rising stars and established names to the precipice of immortality. In the NFL, two No. 6 seeds went on to win a Super Bowl (2006 Steelers, 2010 Packers). In the NBA, Houston Rockets repeated as NBA Champs in 1995 as a six seed. This is the first season of expanded playoffs in MLB.
To win it all, Harper may need to keep his electric pace. His 1.351 OPS through the National League playoffs is sixth-best in history. Four of the top-10 all-time performances in this statistic went on to win World Series MVP. That list is Reggie Jackson, Willie Stargell, Paul Molitor (he killed the Phils in 1993), and David Ortiz. All are Hall of Famers.
It should come as no surprise that Harper has the best odds among the Phillies to win World Series MVP. On some boards, he has the lowest price. On others, he’s right behind Yordan Alvarez.
Most World Series Home Runs
BetMGM is offering a couple fun World Series betting markets, including a bet on who will hit the most home runs in the series.
Harper appears to be beyond the thumb injury that appeared to be preventing him from fully extending on balls after returning to the lineup in August. He’s gone deep in each series of the postseason.
To bring home the Commissioner’s Trophy, he’ll likely need to do something he’s never done before: go deep against the Astros. He’s never gone yard at Minute Maid Park. Watching the ALCS, it looks like the left-field seats are an easier target than going to right field. If that’s the case, the right-handed power of the Phillies lineup should take advantage.
The middle games in Philadelphia shouldn’t be an issue. I watched Harper hit two line-drive homers off Kyle Kendrick in 40-degree temperature on Opening Day 2017. It shouldn’t be THAT cold when the games move to Citizens Bank Park.
Most World Series Hits
Entering the World Series, Bryce Harper has been hitting .419, with 18 hits in 43 at-bats. The 18 hits is a franchise postseason record, as are his 11 extra-base hits.
Rob Thomson’s decision to move him from third to clean-up in the order, behind JT Realmuto, appears to be working. More importantly, the guys behind him, Nick Castellanos and Alec Bohm, are getting opportunities to knock him home, extend innings, and wear out pitchers.
The Phillies and Astros have very similar offenses. Houston will play in their fourth World Series in their current run. Philadelphia hasn’t shied away from the spotlight. Expect some fireworks and clutch hitting in these games.
DraftKings Boost of Phillies’ World Series Odds
Think the Fightins can keep dancing? Well, DraftKings has a one-day boost for the last day before the World Series, putting Philadelphia at +250 to win the World Series, with a $50 maximum wager. We calculate this as adding more than 30% of expected value over the best market price of +165.
