The U.S.A at 3/2.
The Dominican Republic is a close second at 7/4.
Venezuela follows in 3rd at a distant 7/1.

The biggest dogs? China (200/1), South Africa (150/1), Australia (150/1), Netherlands (125/1), and Italy (100/1).

Defending champions Japan are an intriguing 8/1.

I'll take Korea at 12-1. They won Gold in the Olympics.

With the major leaguers playing it might be tougher for them this time around, worth a punt at that price though.

People are actually betting on Bud's world baseball craptacular?

Well since the whole thing is a cash grab, I guess it makes sense...

Right on, man. The regular MLB stuff, you know, that's done for the love of the game. All of it, pure as sunshine.

I would guess that most of the action is coming from the US, and that should be enough to make the Dominican Republic the real favorites. not just betting odds.

Cuba wins, in my opinion. Should have won the last classic, I have my doubts though, playing the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and the U.S will definitely not be easy to overcome.

No chance the USA wins.

Just like the Yankees, too many stars, and not enough team.
