Okay, I Kind of Want that Dodgers Money Clip Now

You know, one of the most interesting things about this post-World Series, pre-free agency period is that the early odds on MLB betting for 2009 have already come out. I always love that, because there’s so much that can change between now and then – I mean, just look at the Dodgers and their infield, since right now all they know is who the first baseman will be. Probably. Anyway, let’s check out some of the early early odds I found at this sportsbook, which I’ve reordered from lowest moneyline to highest:
Yankees: 600-1
Cubs: 1000-1
Angels: 1000-1
Red Sox: 1200-1
Phillies: 1200-1
Rays: 1200-1
Tigers: 1400-1
Mets: 1400-1
Dodgers: 1400-1
So the Dodgers are currently tied for the 7th best bet to win the 2009 World Series, which I suppose isn’t too bad. On the other hand, they just made it to the NLCS and are tied with two teams that didn’t make the playoffs and are behind one team they swept out in the first round.
