Just more odds to overcome

The Cubs have not even had 24 hours to celebrate their championship, but the sports book Bovada already has World Championship odds for the 2017 season. It is really too early to predict much - teams will begin to shape their teams over the next two months - but that won’t stop some degenerate gamblers from putting some dough on the line.

The Royals are just one year removed from winning it all with the same nucleus from that ballclub, but Bovada is already down on them after a disappointing 81-81 season. They put the odds of the Royals winning another championship at 33/1, the fifth-worst odds in the American League. The Boston Red Sox have the best odds in the league at 9/1, but are still behind the World Champion Cubs at 7/2 to repeat.

If you were wondering, the Royals were 16/1 odds to win the 2015 World Series in the days following the 2014 World Series.

Here are the complete odds, courtesy of Bovada.
