Chris Sale Trade Cuts Red Sox World Series Odds In Half

The Red Sox acquisition of left-handed ace Chris Sale has certainly affected the betting markets. According to, bookies have slashed Boston's odds of winning the 2017 World Series from 10/1 (before the trade) to 5/1 (today). This puts The Carmine Hose in the second spot on the list—behind only the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs at 3/1. You will all be happy to know that The Bronx Embalmers emerged from the Winter Meetings with longer odds than when they went in. The Evil Ones now stand at 30/1 to win the 2017 Fall Classic—up from 25/1.
