What are the Cleveland Indians’ odds to win the 2014 World Series

Now that Boston wrapped up the 2013 World Series, it’s time to talk about the Tribe and their chances in the new year. The Cleveland Indians made the playoffs this season, of course, but Vegas apparently isn’t super confident in the Tribe’s ability to repeat that feat and win the whole thing on top of it.

Jeff Sherman of LVH says that the Indians are a 25/1 shot tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Baltimore Orioles.

RJ Bell of pregame.com has the Tribe tied with the Orioles again, but at 28/1 odds. The aforementioned Pirates are 25/1.

The Houston Astros are the bottom listed at 250/1 with RJ Bell and 200/1 with Jeff Sherman. Both services have the Dodgers with the best odds of winning at 5/1.

The Indians are our team, so you know if we find ourselves in Vegas we’re going to bet something. The only question is how much? What do you think, Chris Antonetti?

    Never hurts to believe but much work lies ahead for the Indians if they want to experience something like last night. They are on the right road but this winter needs to be another aggressive one IMO.

    all this before FA and the winter meetings? Seems like a useless exercise to put odds on the WS of 2014

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Anyone but the Dodgers but thanks LA for taking on all that payroll and allowing the Red Sox to reshape the roster. We couldn’t have done it without you!

  • architrance

    You mean like losing it all?

  • Lloyd

    So you’re saying there’s a chance…

    Shamrock is more or less an institution here, and I look forward to the day we can be overbearing with our celebration when we win something.

  • CB Everett

    haha come on Sham! You’re better than that. This is like running down to the homeless shelter and telling them about the great steak you just ate last night. One of my best friends is from Boston (and I’m already getting a full dose of the basking in sox glory)…man, sometimes, it’s REALLY hard being happy for you guys:)

    So any reputable, if there were any, sportsbook would let me lay 34-1 that the Tribe WON’T win the W.S. next year, right? Even LVH which I love won’t offer that up. They just want to take and take. There’s always next year right?…nevermind.
