I was wondering if anyone could post the playoff odds when they came available? Thanks

If so:

Boston +400
Cubs +300
White Sox +1800
Los Angeles Angels +400
Los Angeles Dodgers +1000
Brewers +1500
Twins +1800
Phillies +700
Rays +300


AL Pennant:

Boston +200
White Sox +800
Angels +200
Twins +600
Rays +175


NL Pennant:

Cubs +120
Dodgers +350
Brewers +500
Phillies +200

There's value in the underdogs, imo. Interested to see how Lead Pipe might break these series down.

Don't have much time now Funds, but I will say this - a big problem with the season series wagers is finding the right number. Long story short - at most internet sites the juice is waaaay too high - you aren't getting the right price for either end.

Lead's done well with his baseball post season technique the last two years, which is finding premier pitchers at a good price. Example used from last year is that CC and (at the time) a dominant Fausto were underdogs each time they pitched in the Yankee Series. How many time can you wager CC as a dog in the regular season?

I think it very well could be the Red Sox v. Dodgers in WS. I would think the media might be able to work with that matchup. :lol:

The better pitcher (Chad Billingsley) will be a significant underdog to Carlos Zambrano Thursday. This is the type of thing to look for in playoff baseball. You don't have to win nearly 52.4% of these wagers to beat the man. The Dodgers, the team playing better, with the better pitcher, and you might get them around +160? Give up the home field at that price.

Lead- undefeated thus far in MLB action. Boston v. LA for WS looks better each day. :P :-P :razz:

Red Sox and Rays are locks to win today, Stu Feiner-like locks. :lol:
