What will happen first: Pete Rose becomes eligible for the MLB HoF … or Pete Rose dies? Oddsmakers at MyBookie say the latter (see last betting line below for specifics).

If you’re like me, you miss Baseball and could use a little pick-me-up (and some New York-centric betting lines).

MyBookie, senior oddsmaker David Strauss commented:

The 2019 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot is out and analysts at sports betting site, MyBookie have run the numbers and studied recent voting trends. 

Some of the more noteworthy odds appear below. Smart money seems to be on Mariano Rivera and Edgar Martinez

  • Yankees’ widely loved Mariano Rivera is a favorite to inducted.
  • Toronto’s Roy Halliday is even odds
  • Seattle’s Edgar Martinez is also favored
  • New York’s Mike Mussina may have to wait another year
  • Also, oddsmakers give Pete Rose a snowball’s chance (5/1) to ever be Hall of Fame eligible
