On Thursday, Bovada.lv released its odds for the stat lines of several prominent players. On Friday, the final preseason odds for what MLB team will win the 2013 World Series were released. They are as follows:
Blue Jays 8-1
Red Sox 30-1
White Sox 40-1
Let us remember these aren't predictions. The bookmakers are trying to get the most amount of action on as many teams as possible. So more nationally popular teams like the Yankees, Red Sox and Cubs will generally always be "too high" on the list.
Another observation: How the hell isn't the Astros' line like 10,000-1? Who is wasting money on a mere 250-1?
Also, all the Mariners fans who called me names via email after my power rankings should be jumping all over this action, no?
Anyway, how are we betting?

The superstar is one year away from free agency
The Angels knew about it and still wanted to sign the potential ace, of course
The Tigers asking price is supposedly very high, though
