Daily fantasy and sports betting experts aside, some of us simply want to place a ‘casual’ bet on sports occasionally. We’re betting that one of those occasions is the 2019 MLB World Series. Perhaps you haven’t watched a baseball game all year but indeed care to make things interesting. Below you’ll find the best places to bet on the World Series this year, at least as we see it. Rule of thumb: Always read the fine-print concerning policies and rules.
Most casual sports bettors will be seeking to place a bet on who will win the 2019 MLB World Series. We’d just like to point out an additional bet that goes hand in hand with picking the winner and that’s the Series MVP.
Hello Rookie MLB Insight

FanDuel World Series Betting Options
Along the exact same lines, FanDuel isn’t just for daily fantasy nerds. In-fact, they feature one of the fastest growing sportsbooks in the United States.

Monkey Knife Fight World Series Betting Options
Here’s a daily fantasy sports / sports betting / prop betting platform that you’ve likely never heard of. It’s called Monkey Knife Fight and it’s an increasingly popular source to make wagers on sporting events. Monkey Knife Fight (or MKF) is a very unique resource for sports fans. They’re essentially running a prop betting platform under the guise of ‘playing’ daily fantasy sports. However, the writing is on the wall so to speak when it comes to sports betting in the United States and they’re likely to remain unfettered.
With that being said, MKF is only offering props for individual games throughout the World Series, compared to betting on the entire Series or the Series MVP.
Bovada World Series Betting Options
There will come a day in the United States when sports betting is legalized across the nation, where consumers in every state can decide whether they want to place a legitimate bet on a legitimate platform with legitimate consumer protections. However, that day has not yet come. Thus, for those of us who live in states where DraftKings and or FanDuel (among others) haven’t cleared all the hoops necessary to operate, we’re limited to aforementioned MKF and the blackmarket.
The online sports betting black market is none of our first choice, however, when beggars can’t be choosers, Bovada comes to the rescue for sports fans across America. Bovada is a ‘legitimate’ place to place a wager, just be aware of all the fine-print including but not limited to rollover requirements.
