    Updated World Series odds
    By Grant Brisbee | SB Nation Hot Corner

    It's time for the semi-weekly World Series and pennant odds update. These odds are provided by the good folks at Bovada, and they're a window into the future. If you're poor, here's a good way to get rich!

    Now, usually the odds are with the casinos and bookmakers when you bet on sports. No, no, it's true. I read it on Wikipedia years ago. But follow my logic here:

    Either the Rangers or A's will win the West, which gives one of them a 1-in-8 shot at the World Series. The other one has to go to the play-in Wild Card game, which gives them a 50-percent chance of that 1-in-8 shot. So, 1-in-16.

    Yet the Rangers are 10-to-1 to win the World Series, and the A's are 12-to-1

    So if you put, I don't know, your life savings on both the Rangers and A's, you're beating the odds.

    It can't lose. Except for all the ways it can. Also, I was an English major, so I'm not really sure what "odds" are. But here are the updated odds for the World Series and pennants in both leagues:

    Odds to win the 2013 World Series
    Los Angeles Dodgers - 13/4
    Detroit Tigers - 19/4
    Atlanta Braves - 13/2
    Boston Red Sox - 15/2
    Texas Rangers - 10/1
    Pittsburgh Pirates - 11/1
    St. Louis Cardinals - 11/1
    Oakland Athletics - 12/1
    Cincinnati Reds - 14/1
    Tampa Bay Rays - 14/1
    New York Yankees - 25/1
    Baltimore Orioles - 28/1
    Cleveland Indians - 50/1
    Kansas City Royals - 75/1
    Washington Nationals - 75/1
    Arizona Diamondbacks - 200/1

    Odds to win the 2013 AL Pennant
    Detroit Tigers - 2/1
    Boston Red Sox - 15/4
    Texas Rangers - 5/1
    Oakland Athletics - 6/1
    Tampa Bay Rays - 6/1
    New York Yankees - 12/1
    Baltimore Orioles - 14/1
    Cleveland Indians - 25/1
    Kansas City Royals - 40/1

    Odds to win the 2013 NL Pennant
    Los Angeles Dodgers - 3/2
    Atlanta Braves - 11/4
    Pittsburgh Pirates - 5/1
    St. Louis Cardinals - 5/1

    Pretty simple. All the division winners 1-4 and the wild card teams follow.

    Damn, the Cards are 11/1 on the WS? Won't do it because I'm a Dodgers fan, but those are damn good odds.
