Odds to Win the 2007 World Series

Bodog Sportsbook took their best shot in December as to which team will win the 2007 World Series.  But now that the off-season has settled down and pitchers and catchers are due to report in about nine days, they have revised the odds and in a sense are ranking each team's off-season performance.

Here is the update:

It is interesting that the Marlins have a better chance than the Braves to win the division but a slightly worse chance to win the pennant. Maybe it has something to do with playoff experience or extending the season longer and taking the young arms into an uncharted number of innings. Or it could mean that their superior, on paper, bullpen gives them an edge. Or possibly something else - you make the call.
