Dodgers Betting Favorites Over Rays in World Series
The Los Angeles Dodgers certainly have the confidence of sportsbooks as they prepare to take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series starting on Tuesday.
According to ESPN’s David Purdum, William Hill U.S. made the Dodgers -210 favorites to beat the Rays in the series following the Dodgers Game 7 win over the Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series.
However on Monday, the consensus price to bet the Dodgers has settled at -195, with the underdog Rays fetching +165 odds, per the report.
Prior to the season starting, the Dodgers were considered to be co-favorites, along with the New York Yankees, to win the World Series.
While the Yankees faltered, the Dodgers remained betting favorites throughout the season, in every game, and throughout the postseason as well.
