As I was walking around The Bellagio looking for a listing of church services, I happened across the race and sports book.

There was a list of odds to win the 2009 World Series. Here it is:

Red Sox 5-1
Cubs 5-1
Angels 6-1
Yankees 6-1 (opened at 8-1 on Oct. 22)
Dodgers 8-1
Rays 10-1
Mets 10-1
Phillies 10-1
Diamondbacks 12-1
Twins 15-1
Cardinals 18-1
Marlins 20-1
Tigers 22-1 (opened at 30-1)
White Sox 22-1
Indians 25-1
Brewers 25-1
Blue Jays 35-1
Rockies 35-1
Astros 40-1
Athletics 40-1
Reds 50-1
Giants 60-1
Braves 60-1
Rangers 75-1
Orioles 75-1
Mariners 75-1
Padres 100-1
Nationals 125-1
Royals 125-1
Pirates 150-1

Now keep in mind that the line is not necessarily who the casino thinks will win. It’s designed to drive the betting so that the casino can’t lose.

The Twins might be worth $50. Maybe the White Sox, too.

As for the NFL, the Patriots opened at 5-2 on Jan. 13 and are at 20-1 now. The Giants are the new favorite at 9-5. The Steelers went from 16-1 to 4-1.

I’m feeling the Panthers at 12-1. The Ravens are at 18-1 after opening at 125-1.
