I remember in 05 getting them at 20-1.. Made a killing that year.
How much did you lay down on the 8-1 bet?

Yeah I saw that in the Paris casino this weekend too. Sox are 5/1 to win the AL, Twins are 6/1.

Cubs...get this... are 9/2 to win the world series.

They always have good odds since so many people bet on them.

My dad was in Vegas in late November and I think I got the Sox at 8-1 for WS champs and 4-1 for AL champs at that time, so the lines haven't moved much.

Besides the White Sox, the two other teams I had him bet for me were Cleveland at 15-1 to win AL pennant and Philadelphia at 15-1 to win the NL pennant (this was before the Garcia deal). I think Cleveland is still around that number, and Philly was down to 5-1 for NL champs when I looked a month or so ago...

I remember in March of '05 I was in Vegas with buddies for March Madness. Ended up going on a hot run of blackjack and had about $1,000 profit in my pocket. Decided I should go to the sportsbook and buy the Sox at 19-1 to win the AL, but my friends tackled me and prevented me from doing so. THOSE BASTARDS OWE ME 19k!!!

8-1, bookies still liking us. Vegas is the only expert worth paying attention to.

Same thing happend to me. In May '05 I was there and the Sox were 20-1 to win it all and I was about to put some cash on that but decided against it right before we left. Oh well.

It was before they did most of their manuevering. The line was pretty much about their real odds with that team. Lots of good moves late in the offseason made those odds change in a hurry.

You are getting ripped on that...on my betting site they are 14-1. Here's a quick sampling:

Yanks 19-4
White sox 14-1
Mets 7-1
Detroit 10-1
Anaheim 10-1
Boston 9-1
Minny 20-1
Stlouis 14-1
Cubs 12-1

I bought at the beginning of December @ +1200 from MGM. That was the best odds I could find at the time, and I checked out several while there. I see they are now +800 everywhere now. Anyways, I had them at +4500 in 05':bandance: . But when ya add it all up in the grand scheme of things, "I'm about even". That's what I remind my wife all the time anyways.:wink:

I also put a few bucks on Brewers/Sox series at +25,000. That would be fun chuggin back and forth on 94 to watch our Sox sweep in 4.:gulp:

You never get true odds on the Cubs, Yanks or Red Sox based on the money flows. Those are the three worst bets in baseball, regardless of the season.

I wouldn't put a dime in a offshore nowadays,with all the Netteller problems and major books rejecting US money things are not good.

Good Luck.

This one is still pretty good, operational and I am still able to load $$ through a 3rd party prepaid debit visa card. I'm not putting any large amount in there but still fun to put a few bones down.

Yep, those were the same odds I got in Laughlin in late December. Bet $50 AL and $100 WS. I also won $3K on them in 2005 and should have picked up another $1400 last year if they hadn't decided to take the second half of the season off.
