Default White Sox odds in Las Vegas

Our department admin took a long weekend trip to Las Vegas, and I asked her to place a few wagers on the White Sox for me. She goofed up my request a bit, but based on the odds that I am getting, it probably doesn't matter.
My wagers ended up being $10 on the Sox winning the AL pennant and $10 on the Sox to win the World Series. (Yeah, I know I'm a high roller )
So the odds I am getting (from the Wynn Encore, for what it's worth):

Sox to win the AL pennant: 6 - 1
Sox to win the World Series: 10 - 1

Here's hoping you have an extra $160 in your pocket at the end of October!

I wish I got the odds you got. I had a buddy in Vegas bet $20 on the White Sox to win the World Series at Bellagio and I got 7-1 odds.

Just checked at bodog and they're 11/1 to win the pennant and 20/1 to win the world series. $10 on each and I can be $310 wealthier in October.

I was close. I thought Vegas would go with 8 - 1 for a Sox championship.

I work at the Venetian and was going to place some bets today as well... I'll let everyone know what the odds are at the sportsbook in the Venetian/Palazzo are... I was gonna get a drink at Lagassi's Stadium as well so maybe the odds at that sportsbook are different

That has to be an overlay. If the World Series championship was decided by pure chance, 29-1 would be the correct payout. Can you put down a few quid for me?

Sorry for my lack of gambling knowledge, but can someone explain how you would collect winnings on a bet in Vegas for something like this?

I'll be heading out there in June and wouldn't mind putting a few $$ down on various events, but I don't see myself going back anytime soon.

Please, not even joking, don't ask anyone to place bets for you. You could get this site in some serious problems if it is seen as in intermediary in gambling.

Lets say that the Sox are playing the Royals and the Sox are the favorite. The money line may be listed as:
Sox -140 Royals +120 In this example, if you wanted to bet on the Sox who are the favorites you would be putting up $140 and if you win you would collect $240 giving you $100 profit. In other words, you risk $140 to make $100.
If you wanted to take the underdog Royals you would wage $100 and collect $220 if you won. This means that you risk $100 to make $120.
I think at least.

Im not a big gambler either but when I go to vegas I usually pick big underdogs to win and put 10 bucks on a few games and see what happens.
