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, are the odds on all 10 teams in the postseason:

Chicago Cubs +225
Texas Rangers +500
Washington Nationals +600
Boston Red Sox +600
Los Angeles Dodgers +600
Cleveland Indians +800
Toronto Blue Jays +1200
New York Mets +1600
Baltimore Orioles +2000
San Francisco Giants +2000
