I was at the Venetian this week and the Sox odds to win it all dropped from 17-1 on Monday to 12-1 on Thursday.
They remain at 7-1 to win the AL.

Of course, I waited till Thursday to make my Sox bets and had to settle for 12-1.

(I think the Cubs are listed at 15-1/6-1. I don't understand it!)

Just thought I'd pass that along.

Wow, good to hear. I guess I'd put them right about there, maybe a little higher.

Cubs at 6-1 to win the NL? That's ludricous. I'd put a whole bunch of teams ahead of them, including:

-Cardinals
-Astros
-Braves
-Phillies
-Mets
-D Backs
-Giants
-Expos
-Reds
-Dodgers

and Florida, Pittsburg and Colorado are close.

Well the odds are based on who is betting on the teams more than their actual chances. The Cubs have national coverage so a lot of gamblers will be betting on the Cubs. The odds have to be set so that the casino will make money. Even if the Cubs are actually 50-1 odds to win, if gamblers bet on them a ton at 50-1 the odds will go down.

Yeah all the odds are on how much was bet on who. This means all the billions of Cubs fans can vote and the odds could be 1-1.

I'm in at 25-1 at the Stratosphere for the Sox to win it all and at 12-1 for them to win the AL.

Made my bets before the Colon deal!
