A website in Las Vegas that does sports futures...I don't know if I can post the website....ask a mod.

But I think that they're pretty close...Oakland doesn't have the offense to win a World Series, and Baltimore will never get through the gauntlet of NYY/BOS.

And even if you think they're crazy, just lay down a few bucks
and get revenge/sports knowledge superiority and a few extra bucks all in one shot :D !

yeah, when I was in vegas for superball, the odds were around what he has listed, and that was before the yankees signed arod, the cubs got maddux etc. I was going to put money on the red sox, but not at those odds. Heck get better odds on a per game basis. ha

On my online sportsbook, Oakland is 10-1 and Baltimore is 150-1 - that is realistic.

For them to be as close as your list indicates is ridiculous considering that Oakland has a very good chance of actually participating in the playoffs and Baltimore has virtually no chance whatsoever. Baltimore will essentially be completely eliminated by the AS Break.

Yeah - I think those are preseason odds. Even though it says updated 'June 10,' I don't think they were really updated. If you could find those odds right now in any Vegas casino, I would be shocked.

That one is probably a typo. They are 15-1 at my sportsbook.

That's sounds more like it, because they are playing better than people thought they would.
