Breeders Cup betting enthusiasts from across North America are chomping at the bit to watch the 2011 World Series kick off on Wednesday October 19, 2011. This year’s matchup features the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals. In the League Championship Series alone each MLB juggernaut averaged close to five runs per game, against opponents Detroit and Milwaukee. Here is an update on Texas and St. Louis odds and a pick for who should win the series.
A Texas Rangers v St. Louis Cardinals World Series is completely opposite to what we would have liked to see. Nevertheless, using bookie software, we can indicate to you, that the Texas Rangers have the best odds at winning the World Series, despite a lack of home field advantage. Texas is an eight to one favorite to win the title, after they lost to San Francisco in last year’s World Series finals. On the other hand, the St. Louis Cardinals are seen by many as the feel good underdogs of the season, as their 20 to one odds indicate.
St. Louis was a 10.5 game underdog to the Atlanta Braves for the NL Wild Card during the season and stormed all the way back to win the playoff berth, before going through two grueling series with Philadelphia and Milwaukee. Considering that none of the Cardinals starters could make it past the third inning in the NLCS, one has to wonder how much of a toll that took on the Cardinals bullpen.
Conversely, the Texas Rangers have looked dominant since game one of the ALDS against Tampa Bay, in which they were lit up nine to nothing. Texas offense and pitching rotation, has the team in a prime position to win the World Series for the first time in franchise history.
