MLB: Odds to Win the 2014 World Series (Preseason vs. Postseason)
Well, the regular season is.
I’ve reposted those odds below, along with the 10 playoff teams’ odds of going all the way.
How do they compare?
Favorably, as far as the Los Angeles Dodgers are concerned. The Dodgers were the favorites going into 2014 and they are the favorites heading into the postseason (along with the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Angels).
Way off base was the 15-1 call on the reigning champion Boston Red Sox, who wound up finishing 20 games under .500 and in dead last.
Enjoy the postseason!
