Bovada has Royals odds of winning the World Series at 25/1

"Never tell me the odds."

You'd think winning the American League pennant would win you some respect, but judging from the critical spirits on this site, and the snub by ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, it seems the Royals are still the Rodney Dangerfield of baseball. Count Vegas as another of the non-believers, as they have the Royals firmly in the middle of the pack in baseball in terms of World Series odds at 25/1.

The Washington Nationals are now the favorites to win it all in the wake of the Max Scherzer signing today, with wheeling-and-dealing Dodgers second. The Boston Red Sox have the best odds in the American League with the Cubbies, coming off an 89-loss season, tied for the third-best odds with Boston.

The Royals have the third-best odds in the Central Division between the Tigers and White Sox. Kansas City is tied with the Yankees and the Padres, who have been aggressive in improving their team this year. Clearly Vegas is not aware of Dayton Moore's magical ability to get the Royals to go on a mid-summer run.
