Some interesting props to consider

Props, or proposition bets, are usually sucker’s bets in Vegas but with the Yankees being listed as big favorites to win the World Series over the Phillies, I thought I’d show you some of the match-ups that are being offered (courtesy of Bodog.com). Odds that begin with a minus (i.e. -140) are the favorites; odds that begin with a plus (+110) are the underdogs.

Here’s my question: How come there isn’t a prop for “who will have more pitching changes?” You’d have to think Girardi would get the (-1600) line on that one. Anyway, for entertainment purposes only …

Who will hit more Home Runs in the Series?
Ryan Howard (PHI) +110
Alex Rodriguez (NYY)-140

Who will steal more bases in the Series?
Jimmy Rollins (PHI) -120
Derek Jeter (NYY) -110

Who will have more Hits, Runs & RBI’s in the Series?
Jayson Werth (PHI) +125
Mark Teixeira (NYY) -155

Who will record more Saves in the Series?
Brad Lidge (PHI) +165
Mariano Rivera (NYY) -205

How many Hits will Derek Jeter have in the Series?
Over 6½ (-130)
Under (EVEN)

Who will have a lower ERA in the Series?
Cliff Lee (PHI) +120
C.C. Sabathia (NYY) -150

Who will have a lower ERA in the Series?
Cole Hamels (PHI) +120
Andy Pettitte (NYY) -150

Will there be a Blown Save in the Series?
Yes +230
