What a difference a month makes...

World Series GM7 X

bovada.lv have released their updated odds for the divisions and World Series, as well as the Cy Young and MVP awards. The Diamondbacks’ figure has shrunk dramatically as a result of their impressive first month performance. Before the season started they were seen as 30/1 shots for the World Series; now, their odds have come all the way down to 17/2, which is the lowest in the National League, and behind only the Boston Red Sox (5/1) and Houston Astros (13/2). Their odds to win the division have similarly been slashed, dropping from 4/1 to 4/7 - the latter figure matches what the pre-season NL West favorites, the Dodgers, were at on Opening Day.

Below, you’ll find the current odds for all 30 MLB teams to win the World Series, along with what they were before the season started. You’ll also see the NL West odds, and the National League Cy Young and MVP favorites. What do you think? Is 17/2 still good value for the Diamondbacks? I must confess, I’m wishing I had made an investment at those 30/1 odds when I had the chance...
