Some combination of uninspired play against losing clubs and slowed betting action over the last week has led the St. Louis Cardinals’ odds of winning the National League and World Series to increase, according to new odds released on Monday from bovada.lv.
St. Louis moved from 7/2 to 17/4 to capture the NL pennant and from 15/2 to 8/1 to take it all. They are the only one of the 10 post-season clubs to have longer World Series odds this week compared to last.
There has been no change in the last month in the pecking order across the NL, with the Dodgers the favorite, followed by Washington. St. Louis trails in third. The two wild cards share the longest odds.
Of the five AL clubs still in it, only Oakland has longer odds to win the league compared to last week, though the A’s World Series odds shortened.
