The folks at Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV) aren’t wasting any time moving their thoughts ahead to 2014. Opening odds for next year’s World Series by the 30 MLB teams follow.
As noted, the champion Boston Red Sox and National League pennant-winning St. Louis Cardinals are not the favorites – even to win their own leagues. That early honors go to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers – the two losing teams in the 2013 Championship Series.
Not surprisingly, the Miami Marlins and Houston Astros are the early doormat selections, or on the positive side, would pay out the most if they actually win it all next season.
