Are those odds to win the World Series? If so, pathetic.

Bodog has much better numbers:
Boston - 11/2 ... 15/2
CHN - 11/2 (or 5.5/1)... 7/1
LAA - 8/1 ... 11/1
LAD - 10/1 ... 17/1
NYY 8/5 (or 1.6/1)... 5/2 (or 2.5/1)
.
.
Minn 18/1 ... 25/1
Cle 20/1 ... 25/1
Det 16/1 ... 20/1
Sox 12/1 ... 25/1

Funny thing is, the Sox have the biggest difference.

It's interesting to me that they put the Sox so high...

Barack Obama...that's my only explanation.

We opened at 30/1 and dropped to 12/1. Money flow must be heavy - which is odd given the low level of activity in the offseason.


FWIW - Bears open at 30/1 to win the Superbowl. NE and Pitt are 6/1. I may take Tenn at 18/1, Miami at 25/1 or Philly at 12/1

It makes sense to me. The division is wide open. And anything can happen in the playoffs.

I was in Vegas President's Day Weekend last year. Mirage had the Sox at 10/1 to win the Series. I'm like, no. It was higher in May 2005 (12/1). Like my friend, we both regret not putting some money down that year...

30/1 is decent odds for any NFL team that won 9 games the year before. I'd willingly put money on the Bears if I bet futures.

I like Tennessee at 18/1 too. Miami's an OK bet given what I said about the Bears, but I really think they'll miss the playoffs next year. They played a very easy schedule and only won the division because Brady got hurt. For the Dolphins to remain a contender in the AFC East, they need to realize that they still have major strides to make; if they get content with their division title this season, they will disappoint next season.

Did you regret not putting down in the other 90+ years that they did not win the World Series? Betting on who is going to win the World Series in winter is crazy, you would be better off taking your money to the Craps tables where the house has less edge.
