The Boston Red Sox are the 2013 World Series champions, and if you think they're going to repeat, you should probably find a way to place a wager. They have some decent odds.

Via RJ Bell of pregame.com, here are the Vegas odds for the 2014 World Series champion:

Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1

Detroit Tigers 8-1

Washington Nationals 9-1

St. Louis Cardinals 10-1

Boston Red Sox 12-1

Cincinnati Reds 15-1

Los Angeles Angels 15-1

Oakland Athletics 15-1

New York Yankees 16-1

Texas Rangers 16-1

Atlanta Braves 17-1

San Francisco Giants 22-1

Pittsburgh Pirates 25-1

Baltimore Orioles 28-1

Cleveland Indians 28-1

Tampa Bay Rays 29-1

Kansas City Royals 35-1

Chicago White Sox 40-1

Philadelphia Phillies 40-1

Arizona Diamondbacks 45-1

Toronto Blue Jays 45-1

Chicago Cubs 60-1

Seattle Mariners 65-1

Colorado Rockies 70-1

San Diego Padres 70-1

Milwaukee Brewers 75-1

New York Mets 115-1

Miami Marlins 125-1

Minnesota Twins 125-1

Houston Astros 250-1

Here's our obligatory reminder that odds aren't actually predictions and instead an attempt by the house to maximize profits. So if a certain fan base might bet heavily on a team, the odds shrink. And vice versa. So larger market -- or generally more nationally more popular -- teams tend to show up higher on the list than smaller market teams that are equally as good.

Anyway, there you have it. Now go place your wagers.
