New York and Los Angeles remain the heavy favorites to win this year’s World Series but there’s two other teams seeing a major movement in their odds.
Before the shortened MLB season started the Yankees and Dodgers were listed as +600 favorites to win this year’s World Series. Those odds have seen a slight decrease as both teams are now listed at +350. Meanwhile both the Cubs and Twins opened the year at 20-to-1 are now listed at 10-to-1. The Oakland Athletics are another team seeing some adjustments in their odds. The A’s started the year at 30-to-1 but are now listed at 14-to-1. One team going in the wrong direction is the Boston Red Sox who were originally listed with odds of 12-to-1 but are now at 500-to-1. Sports Illustrated’s gambling analyst Frank Taddeo and the editor of InsideThePinstripe Max Goodman discuss the updated odds to win the World Series.
