Opening Day is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to sneak in those last-minute future bets while conveniently calling in sick to work or school.

This year, as I analyze the MLB odds, I’m eyeing some win totals for teams that may be flying under the radar, fading Ronald Acuna Jr. on the bases, putting my money on Bo, and topping it off with a long shot that could pay off big.

Here are my top five MLB future bets to lock in before Opening Day:

  1. Bobby Witt Jr. to lead the league in stolen bases (+1,100 at bet365)
    • While Ronald Acuna Jr. is the favorite to repeat his impressive stolen base performance from last year, I’m steering clear of that bet due to the high risk and low reward. Instead, I’m intrigued by Bobby Witt Jr., who is projected to get plenty of at-bats in a team known for its aggressive base-stealing tactics. With a price tag of +1,100, the potential payoff makes it hard to resist.
  2. Oakland Athletics Over 56.5 wins (-110 at bet365)
    • Derek Carty recently endorsed the Oakland Athletics to surpass 56.5 wins, and I’m inclined to agree. Despite coming off a 50-win season, there are reasons to be optimistic about the A’s prospects this year. With a young lineup and a promising pitching staff, including names like Alex Wood and Ross Stripling, the A’s have the potential to exceed expectations and secure more than 56.5 wins.

These two bets offer enticing opportunities for savvy bettors looking to capitalize on the upcoming MLB season.
