I've found vegasinsider to be a reliable, up to date and reflective barometer of the market.

2.2 to 1 sounds expensive for the Astros for the AL pennant, who's quoting you that price?



ODDS TO WIN 2018 WORLD SERIES (11/1/18)


Team   Odds
New York Yankees   5/1
Houston Astros   6/1
Los Angeles Dodgers   6/1
Cleveland Indians   8/1
Washington Nationals   8/1
Chicago Cubs   10/1
Boston Red Sox   12/1
Los Angeles Angels   20/1




Excuse me, but doesn't their page say those odds are as of February 5th?

Could  be, didn't look.

As I said its a reliable reflective barometer of the market.

You could source several sellers and get slighly different prices.

Season is still 5 weeks away, there could be some more movement as people further assess teams

He's right - the only perfect barometer of the market is the daily sheet

Maybe you should visit VSIN.

As I posted in response to your question when you had the Yanks as favorites at 5/2

Wonder what that will do to the 6/1 odds to win the pennant (Yanks at 5/2)

could make bettors reasess AL (and more importantly ALE) and could make the Astros or Indians favorites to win AL.

perhaps bettors have made a new assessment.

Yeah....

not so much luck of course - and never about just the one bet

I may back it with a 150 bet on Houston
