The League Championship series in the Major League Baseball Playoffs are set, with four teams remaining alive to win the 2014 World Series. In the National League, this matchup could have been predicted. In the American League, not so much.
It’s a solid guess that the Kansas City Royals and the Baltimore Orioles were not on the radar of most people.
You wouldn’t be alone.
But watching both of these teams, they are well deserving of the position that they are in. So too are the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants on the NL side of the equation.
As the NLCS and ALCS get ready to start, betting odds to win the 2014 World Series have been adjusted, as well as the exact matchup betting lines.
It’s the Orioles that lead the way, going off at 11/5 to win the title. The Giants and Cardinals both come in with an equal 13/5 payout, while the Royals round things out at 13/4.
Then Bovada formulated exact matchup odds for the Fall Classic. The top payout puts the Cardinals in the World Series against the Orioles, making it an all-bird contest. Next on the list is Baltimore going against San Francisco. The Giants might be the team to watch here based purely on trends. They have been dominant over the course of the last several season on the even year, capturing the World Series in 2010 and 2012. With it now being 2014, history would say that the smart money might be on the team out west.
The next matchups put the Royals in the World Series, first against the Cardinals at 11/4, and finally against the Giants at 13/4.
Series price betting lines have also been formed for each respective LCS. Baltimore is the slight favorite to come out of the AL, with a wager set at -135 ($1.35 wins $1). A bet on Kansas City is going off at +115 ($1 wins $1.15). The same payouts are installed for the NLCS, with St. louis the favorite and San Francisco the underdog.
Individual game lines are also available for the ALCS and NLCS. These lines will be released following the conclusion of each game in the series. Odds for the run-line, moneyline, and over/under run total.
