On Thursday as the NLDS was getting underway, they provided a refresh, a subset of which follows.
In this installment, we look at the odds to win the two league championships and the World Series, along with specific outcomes of the Cardinals-Pirates series.
Says Kevin Bradley, Sports book Manager, Bovada.lv:
“For the first time all year, the Red Sox at 15/4 have finally surpassed the Dodgers and Tigers as World Series favorites, but are not seeing too much action. In fact they have been lightly bet all year and as a result, the Red Sox winning the World Series would be an ideal result for the book.
“With the Playoffs getting really underway in just a few hours, we have seen quite a bit of Cardinals money, forcing us to drop them from 6/1 to 11/2. Out of the AL, it seems that the Rays, who have had to battle their way in, are the popular bet at 8/1.”
