Odds to Win 2006 World Series

New York Yankees 7/2
Chicago White Sox 5/1
New York Mets 6/1
St Louis Cardinals 7/1
Boston Red Sox 10/1
Chicago Cubs 13/1
Oakland Athletics 13/1
Anaheim Angels 14/1
Cleveland Indians 14/1
Los Angeles Dodgers 18/1
Toronto Blue Jays 18/1
San Francisco Giants 20/1
Atlanta Braves 22/1
Minnesota Twins 25/1
Houston Astros 30/1
Philadelphia Phillies 35/1
Milwaukee Brewers 40/1
San Diego Padres 40/1
Texas Rangers 40/1
Seattle Mariners 60/1
Arizona Diamondbacks 100/1
Baltimore Orioles 100/1
Detroit Tigers 100/1
Pittsburgh Pirates 100/1
Washington Nationals 100/1
Cincinnati Reds 120/1
Colorado Rockies 225/1
Florida Marlins 250/1
Tampa Bay Devil Rays 300/1
Kansas City Royals 400/1

I think the Mets at 6-1, the Cubs at 13-1 and the Giants at 20-1 are way over-priced. There's no way the Mets are that much better a bet than the A's or the Braves (more a function of the money expected to be placed on the Mets than anything else) and the Cubs and Giants bets are plain and simple sucker bets.

The best bets in my mind at the Red Sox at 10-1, the A's at 13-1 and the Braves at 22-1. If you placed $500 on each team - it would cost $1,500 but the return would be a minimum of plus $3,500 or a maximum of plus $9,500. (I personally don't like waiting a full season for my money though.)
