Blue Jays Remain in World Series Odds Mix

Despite a slow start to the new season the oddsmakers at online sportsbook Bodog have not soured on the Toronto Blue Jays yet.

Through 14 games the defending American League East champions are 7-7 mostly due to some inconsistent hitting and a shaky bullpen. The starting rotation, which was considered to be a bit of a question mark heading into the season, has looked good though behind Marcus Stroman, a dominant Aaron Sanchez and strong starts from Marco Estrada and J.A. Happ.

The solid showing from the Jays starters and the fact that they’re still third in the division is why Bodog has the Blue Jays tied for second on the World Series odds at +1000.

The Chicago Cubs began the season as the World Series favorite and they’ve lived up to those expectations. Chicago remains the favorite at +500 after a 9-3 start to the season. Losing Kyle Schwarber in the first week was a blow, but Dexter Fowler has packed some surprising offense punch and Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta picked up where he left off last season.

The San Francisco Giants are locked in with the Blue Jays at +1000. Side-effects generic lasix of a minor nature. If early results mean anything the Giants could be in for quite the fight with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies for top spot in the National League West. The Dodgers are close behind them on the World Series odds at +1200 while the Rockies are big underdogs at +10,000.

If you were thinking about betting on the Kansas City Royals to repeat as World Series champs now may be the time. The Royals have started moving up the futures after starting the season 8-4. The Royals are at +1200 and their odds will only get better if they keep winning.

The same could probably be said about the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles started the season as a +4000 World Series underdog at Bodog. Then then won their first seven games and currently sit in first in the AL East at 8-3. There was no question that the Orioles could hit, but their pitching looked more than suspect. So far the big bats are carrying them and have pushed them up to +2500 on the World Series odds.
