Congratulations, St. Louis. Now get back to reality.

Not even 48 hours after the Cardinals won the 2011 World Series, Vegas oddsmakers are already dissing the new champs.

BoDog has the Redbirds listed as 15-to-1 odds at repeating, slightly better than the San Francisco Giants, who are listed at 17-to-1. A year ago at this time, the World Series champion Giants were listed at 12-to-1 to repeat.

As usual, the Phillies (5-to-1), Yankees (7.5-to-1) and Red Sox (9-to-1) are your perennial top three favorites.

The NL West winning Arizona Diamondbacks are listed at 21-to-1 odds for winning the 2012 World Series, while the Rockies are 26-to-1, the Dodgers are 31-to-1 and the Padres are 76-to-1.

The Houston Astros are listed at the bottom of the book, at 101-to-1.

I hope you enjoyed reading "Giants listed as 17-to-1 favorites to win 2012 World Series." I'm interested in your opinion on this article. Why not leave a comment at 22gigantes.com?
