It’s been an ongoing nightmare for fans of the Los AngelesAngels over the last decade, with one playoff appearance and zero postseason series victories to their name.
Despite employing two of the sport’s premier figures in outfielder Mike Trout and two-way supernova Shohei Ohtani, the Angels have found a way to squander their good graces of late — highlighted by this year’s 68-82 campaign that’s included a 23-36 stretch after the All-Star break. With the MLB regular season winding down, BetCalifornia.com is looking ahead to the offseason and constructed odds on which managers might be let go.
There is no legal California sports betting. It will be 2024 before another referendum can hit the state ballot.
Odds of Next Manager to be Fired
Fallen Stars May Cost Nevin His Job
Among the 18 managers of teams that will not play in October, Nevin ranks fourth on our list in terms of odds of being fired at +200. The 52-year-old native of Placentia ranks behind Oliver Marmol of the St. Louis Cardinals (-120), Aaron Boone of the New York Yankees (+150) and Colorado skipper Bud Black (+175).
That’ll happen when you oversee a second half flameout the likes of what the Angels are currently experiencing — compounding the litany of issues that have ultimately tanked the club’s postseason chances in each of the last nine seasons in Orange County.
On the other side of the baseball world, Atlanta is the favorite at BetMGM Sportsbook — there is no BetMGM California — to win the World Series at +225 odds. Defending champion Houston and the Los Angeles Dodgers are tied for second at +550.
