It’s Opening Day! Wait a second… Opening Day is tomorrow. No, wait. It’s Tuesday.

Hold on. Hold on. The Los Angeles Dodgers are already 2-1. The Arizona Diamondbacks are already 0-2. They had their Opening Day (a double-header) in Australia back on March 22nd. How long did it take for you to catch on to that one?

You know what? There’s no such thing as a league-wide “Opening Day” anymore – just when your team starts the season.

But, most teams – 26 of the 30 – start it up tomorrow, Monday.

So, just in time, here are the official Opening Day odds to win the 2014 World Series, courtesy vegasinsider.com, along with every team’s record, finish and postseason result in 2013.

The Dodgers – who have the highest payroll in baseball – are the favorites.
