I Swear I’m Not Trying to Pile On….

Our friend Jimmy Shapiro just sent these to me…..the odds to win the 2009 World Series according to Bodog. Maybe these numbers already existed; but I had no idea…..

Odds to win the 2009 World Series

New York Yankees 9/2

Boston Red Sox 11/2

Chicago Cubs 8/1

New York Mets 8/1

Los Angeles Angels 14/1

Philadelphia Phillies 15/1

Arizona Diamondbacks 16/1

Tampa Bay Rays 18/1

Atlanta Braves 20/1

Los Angeles Dodgers 20/1

Cleveland Indians 20/1

Minnesota Twins 24/1

Detroit Tigers 25/1

St Louis Cardinals 25/1

Oakland Athletics 25/1

San Francisco Giants 30/1

Chicago White Sox 40/1

Milwaukee Brewers 45/1

Florida Marlins 50/1

Texas Rangers 60/1

Cincinnati Reds 60/1

Toronto Blue Jays 75/1

Colorado Rockies 75/1

Kansas City Royals 75/1

Seattle Mariners 80/1

Pittsburgh Pirates 100/1

Houston Astros 100/1

San Diego Padres 100/1

Washington Nationals 125/1

Baltimore Orioles 150/1

You read that right. According to Bodog, the Orioles are the BIGGEST LONGSHOTS IN ALL OF BASEBALL. Worse than the Nationals, worse than the Royals, worse than the Padres, etc.

150/1. Is it worth a dollar?

Interestingly enough, the Royals actually have worse odds to win the American League than the O’s do; as the Birds are at 50/1 and the Royals are at 60/1. I guess it has something to do with the division alignment, but I’m not certain.
