Intresting. Don't put too much into theWorld Sports Exchange and the Palms casino odds. Pay more attention to the 12-1 offered at the Stardust. From what I have seen, that is the more likely odds you would get if you bet them in Vegas, right now. I believe Caesar's Palace has the Sox at 20-1 if you want some more value.

(I hope Phil Mickelson was the one who bet the Sox down to 12-1 at the Stardust...he was right on picking the Ravens to win the super bowl in 2001 at 25-1 and had the Patriots last year. (He also bet Mike Weir (a golfer) $20 dollars for 25-1 odds that Jim Furyk would hole out from a greenside bunker in a playoff...and Furyk holed it. $500 bucks in Phil's pocket). I digress...)

Notice how the Cubs are 14-1 to win the World Series. That just takes into account all the Chicago tourists/saps that just place $20 on the Cubs b/c it is there year. You're $2000 in the hole if you have been alive since 1903. :smile:

I mean, after all, that $20 you place on the White Sox to win it all is A LOT smarter bet...isn't it?

Not to be picky or anything, but the Flubbies won the series in 1907 and 1908.

The bottom line is that I wouldn't put any money on either the Sox or the Cubs to win the series this year. Whether the odds are 12-1, 20-1, or 50-1, neither of 'em are gonna be winning it this year.

My point is simply that the chances of you blowing the $10, $100, or whatever are MUCH greater in actuality than 20-1, 12-1, or whatever. It's a bad bet cause the Sox and Cubs chances in reality are more like 500-1. Oh and it doesn't take Nostradamus to tell ya that Chicago teams ain't world series material.
