Because its never too early to put your money where your mouth is, 2009 World Series odds were released this past October. Since we’re so on top of things around here, we decided to talk about this now. In January.
When you consider the fact that Spring Training hasn’t even started yet, I’m not really keen one to be placing my own personal money on anyone. However, there are tons of sites online that provide an internet casino environment for placing your wager on who will win the 2009 World Series.
That said, the five teams getting the best odds, according to those initial numbers released in October, were the:
- Boston Red Sox at 3:1 odds
- Chicago Cubs at 5:1
- Anaheim Angels 5:1
- Philadelphia Phillies (the 2008 champs) 6:1
- New York Yankees 6:1
Personally, I think it’s a joke that the AL Champion Tampa Bay Rays aren’t the favorite in their own division. Because everyone loves the Yankees, my guess is that up to the minute odds have probably improved for the Bronx Bombers since the signings of C.C., A.J., and Tex.
If you decide to place a wager on your favorite to win the 2009 World Series online, you’ll need to select your preferred site for gaming and choose one of many casino deposit methods that work best for you. As is the case with most land based casinos, online casinos don’t really care what method you choose – so long as they get your cash.
Because we always love picking sleepers here at Fantasy Baseball Dugout, one sleeper choice we love based on the odds for the 2009 World Series is the San Francisco Giants. In October, their odds were 80:1. Since the release of the list in October, the Giants have added Randy Johnson to build a solid pitching rotation with 2008 Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum and insanely overpaid lefty Barry Zito.
Considering the sizable casino bonus codes available online, taking a chance on an 80:1 favorite could pay major dividends for you next October.
