LOS ANGELES, CA (The Spread) – After swinging a huge deal on Tuesday night, oddsmakers have updated the 2012 World Series odds for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers acquired Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate from the Marlins in exchange for right-handers Nathan Eovaldi and Scott McGough late Tuesday night. After a disappointing, injury-plagued 2011 season, the 28-year0old is batting just .246 with 14 home runs and 48 RBI through 93 games this season.

Oddsmakers currently list the Dodgers’ odds for the 2012 World Series at 15/1 and their 2012 National League Pennant odds are 7/1 right now. Los Angeles is also second behind the Giants in terms of odds to win the National League West. The Dodgers are +220 to win the division while the Giants are -220.

It’ll be interesting to see how the Giants respond to the Dodgers’ trade because those two teams, unless the Diamondbacks wake up, will battle back-and-forth in the NL West from here on out. San Francisco could stand an upgrade at second base, although the available options don’t appear to be much better than incumbent starter Ryan Theriot. The Giants could also stand to add another arm to their bullpen, possibly even a closer.

Ramirez will make his Dodgers debut tonight when he bats fifth and plays third base against the Cardinals at 8:15PM ET. Ramirez arrived at Busch Stadium in St. Louis roughly three hours before the game and should love hitting in the same order that consists of Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier.
