Dodgers, Nationals are early favorites to win 2015 World Series; Giants rank fifth (Big League Stew)

Well, distraught Los Angeles Dodgers fans, here’s something that might cheer you up a tad bit after watching your bitter rivals win the World Series — the Dodgers are the early favorites to win the 2015 World Series, according to online sportsbook Bovada . The Washington Nationals share that honor with the Dodgers. Both teams, which were knocked out in the NLDS this season, are listed at 15/2 odds. The San Francisco Giants, whose World Series win hasn’t even dried yet, ranked fifth at 12/1. The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels are just ahead of the Giants, both carrying 10/1 odds. Here’s Bovada’s complete rundown: Los Angeles Dodgers 15/2 Washington Nationals 15/2 Detroit Tigers 10/1 Los Angeles Angels 10/1 San Francisco Giants 12/1 St. Louis Cardinals 12/1 Kansas City Royals 16/1 Seattle Mariners 18/1 Baltimore Orioles 20/1 Oakland Athletics 20/1 Pittsburgh Pirates 20/1 Atlanta Braves 22/1 Boston Red Sox 22/1 New York Yankees 22/1 Cleveland Indians 25/1 Cincinnati Reds 33/1 Tampa Bay Rays 33/1 Texas Rangers 33/1 Toronto Blue Jays 33/1 Chicago White Sox 40/1 Milwaukee Brewers 40/1 New York Mets 40/1 Chicago Cubs 50/1 Miami Marlins 50/1 San Diego Padres 66/1 Philadelphia Phillies 75/1 Arizona Diamondbacks 100/1 Colorado Rockies 100/1 Houston Astros 100/1 Minnesota Twins 100/1 For context’s sake, we’ll point out that the Dodgers topped the list when Bovada released its day-after-the-World Series odds last year too. There were listed at 7/1. The Giants were 18/1. We all know how both of those worked out. More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: - - - - - - - Mike Oz is an editor for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
