Baseball’s postseason begins today with a Wild Card matchup between the Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays. Unsurprisingly, Las Vegas gives the Wild Card teams little chance to the win the World Series.
The bookies give the shortest odds to the Chicago Cubs. Bet $100 now to win $225 after the North Side’s favorites win their first World Series in 108 years. Another team short on postseason victories receives short odds in betting circles. Wager $100 to win $500 on the Texas Rangers to win the first World Series in the franchise’s 57-year history.
The Washington Nationals, Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers all feature respectable odds for the not-so respectable people looking to win big when they win big. Here, courtesy of OddsShark.com, are the odds on all 10 teams in the postseason:
|Boston Red Sox||+600|
|Los Angeles Dodgers||+600|
|Toronto Blue Jays||+1200|
|New York Mets||+1600|
|San Francisco Giants||+2000|
