The Royals have gone from plucky underdogs to hated favorites and are the most likely team to win a championship this year, according to odds released by Bovada. Their success may cause problems for Vegas casinos, who had the Royals as a longer shot before the season but took on substantial bets on Kansas City being the real deal.
"We took some pretty heavy action on the Royals the first weekend of the season," MGM vice president of race and sports Jay Rood said. "A gentleman bet them three times, at 18-1, 15-1 and 10-1, all the way down, between $25,000 and $30,000 a pop."
Which of you is that?
