Cardinals open at 14/1 to win 2013 World Series

For some, the baseball season ended Sunday night with the San Francisco Giants sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the 2012 World Series.

For others, the action never ends. That includes bovada.lv. The online betting site has published their odds to win the 2013 World Series by MLB team.

Despite being swept, the Tigers are 6/1 favorites to take it all next season, just ahead of the Yankees at 7/1. The Giants are third at 10/1, topping the National League.

The Cardinals are 14/1, in a group just behind the Washington Nationals at 12/1. Six teams have better current odds.

Other clubs at 14/1 include the Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies. Albert Pujols’ Angels at 12/1 have the best odds of any club that missed the 2012 post-season.

    The Pirates are 30-1, last year they were 100-1.

    Nobody is going to put money on the Astros at 150-1

    I wonder if our ol buddy, Tony Rasmus, made any moolah this past season? I know he hit the big-time last year with his wager on the Cards winning the WS.

    Personally, I’m convinced that gambling is a huge waste. I agree it can be fun, just like playing Hearts or Backgammon can be fun. Moderation is the rule. But I know this is not a forum for preaching, so I’ll refrain. :)
