Vegas Odds for World Series

The Las Vegas bookies have cited that the Boston Red Sox are 2-1 favourites to win the World Series.”Colorado is a real Cinderella story,” said Jay Kornegay, director of the sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton. “We’re just not sure when it’s going to strike midnight.”

Las Vegas oddsmakers put the Red Sox at -$2.00, meaning every $2 bet will win $1 if Boston wins the World Series. Colorado is plus $1.70, meaning every $1 wins $1.70 if the Rockies win the series.

However, it seems like people are really digging the Rockies this year. Their magical run, in which they have won 21 of 22 games, is causing a lot of people to bet on them. Caesars Palace sports book assistant vice president Chuck Esposito said early betting was heavily on the underdog Rockies. Esposito went on to say, “The pitching edge clearly goes to the Red Sox, but the momentum and the fact that they’ve been on this improbable run, is in the Rockies’ favor. If they’re able to steal one of the first two games in Boston, they’ll be awful tough.”
