  • Cards have 11/2 odds to win 2006 Series

    MGM Grande has Cards @ 11/2 as well, behind the Yankees...

    Odds to Win 2006 World Series from PinnacleSports.Com

    WILLEMSTAD, Curacao, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Windy City hasn't even
    held the victory parade to celebrate the Chicago White Sox first World Series
    title since 1917 and already the odds makers at have
    calculated the odds on which team will win next year's World Series. The
    largest sports betting site on the Internet, has created
    odds on all 30 Major League teams winning the Series in 2006 and the newly
    crowned world champions are not the favorite to repeat next season.

    It should really come as no surprise that the team with a payroll
    exceeding $200 million has been installed as the favorite to capture their
    27th World Series title as has made the New York Yankees
    5/1 favorites to win it all in 2006. The St. Louis Cardinals, who finished
    with a league-best 100 wins this season, are listed as a close second at 11/2
    odds to win the World Series next year. According to the
    2004 world champion Boston Red Sox (8/1), 2003 champion Florida Marlins (11/1)
    and ALCS runner-up Los Angeles Angels (12/1) should also figure into the World
    Series chase. Despite sweeping their way to their first World Series title in
    88 years, the White Sox are slightly off the pace to win another world
    championship next year at 15/1.

    After making an impressive second half run that found them both just
    missing out on the playoffs, the Cleveland Indians (15/1) and Oakland
    Athletics (16/1) appear to be solid contenders again next season. Meanwhile, has listed the World Series runner-up Houston Astros at
    18/1 to win their first championship in team history in 2006. At the other end
    of the spectrum, lists the Milwaukee Brewers (100/1),
    Pittsburgh Pirates (100/1), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (150/1), Colorado Rockies
    (200/1) and Kansas City Royals (300/1) as the long shots to win the 2006 World

      Obviously they didn't read the paper, on which, the cubs are the best team.
      Are you on the list?

        I am sure the odds of Cardinals "choking" or losing to a lesser team next year is 5-2 already.

          I must say the odds on the Rockies and Royals are way to low.

                  I'll put a dollar on the royals. I don't think I'll win, but still.

                    The Brewers have a damn good nucleus of talent that could surprise next year. World Series? eh. Challenge for a playoff spot? More likely than not. 100/1? I'll drop a dollar or 2 on that.
