Oddsmaker bovada.lv is back with new odds on the 2015 World Series, reflecting bettors’ actions based on the first month and a half of the hot stove league.
The big news is the ascension of the Chicago Cubs, storming from back in the pack at 50/1 at the end of the season to just 12/1 today. If you wanted to put big cash on the Baby Bears, you missed your chance for the huge payday – if they could actually win next October, that is.
The St. Louis Cardinals remain in the second tier of clubs, sliding from 12/1 to 14/1, same as the current champion San Francisco Giants. While the Los Angeles Dodgers remain the favorite at 15/2, the Boston Red Sox vaulted to the top of the AL, going from 22/1 to 9/1.
The other three clubs in the National League Central – the Pittsburgh Pirates, Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds – are huddled together in the bottom half of the 30 teams – in the 33/1 to 40/1 range.
Red indicates longer odds while green denotes shorter odds compared to last time. NL Central clubs in bold.
