Back in April, the folks at Bovada.lv provided a set of odds on a number of Major League Baseball-related races. Recently, they provided a refresh so I thought it would be interesting to compare and contrast then versus now. A new line has also been established.

First manager fired April June Don Mattingly no line 7/4 Mike Scioscia 12/1 9/4 Ron Roenicke 7/1 5/1 John Gibbons 20/1 7/1 Eric Wedge 8/1 7/1 Charlie Man...
