        It's a good things those are the actual odds of winning the series, and not the odds set to get equal betting action on all sides.

                      Yeah, bascially, the lower the number, the lower the payout, as that team is superior, and their odds are greater to win.

                      Houston, for example, was 9/2 odds before they won Saturday and yesterday.

                        betting odds has actually nothing to do with the superiority of the team.

                        They're numbers that are placed in order to get equal betting action on all sides of a bet.

                        Basically, the Cards have the best odds because more people are betting on them to win right now.
