Ok, before every MLB season, a few friends and I pick division winners plus wild card teams and then AL and NL Champs + World Series winner.

We just put the predictions on a spreadsheet and at the end of the year its always fun to see how we did.

This year I was 8 for 8 in playoff teams. I think the only mistake I made was flipping NYY and TB in terms of Division Champ and Wild Card.

I have TB over SF in the World Series as well.

Obviously, this is the best I've done since we started doing this in like 2004 and it got me thinking...

If I had bet like a minimum amount and parlayed all the picks before the season, how much would I have won? Is there a way to look at archives of future bet odds?

I'm sure the Cincy pick would have been pretty big alone.

Mods, I don't know what forum this would belong in... Sorry.

well you cant parlay future odds but if it was possible the payout would be huge.

Here ya go:

However, the wild card odds aren't included, so you can't go off those teams numbers. They didn't win the division.

Giants 300%
Rangers 250%
Reds 500%

Would have been some huge winners for ya.

I know I got the Rangers at 3-1 at some point before the season started on an offshore website.

Reds had to have been 6-1 or so.

Edit: oh missed the post above me.
