According to betting odds published by Bovada, the red-hot Blue Jays are suddenly the betting favorite in baseball to win the World Series. They get 4-1 odds, barely better than the 5-1 that the Kansas City Royals get. The Dodgers and Cardinals are both 8-1 and the Mets 9-1.
The Rays? Well, they’re a 40-1 longshot, tied with Baltimore for 13th position. It could be worse. Colorado, Miami, Milwaukee and Philadelphia are all 2,000-1 against.
The Blue Jays turned their season around with the midseason deals for David Price and Troy Tulowitzki.
