Only four teams remain in the 2010 MLB Postseason, as the Yankees will take on the Rangers in the ALCS starting this weekend, and the Phillies will battle the Giants. Read on to check out the latest 2010 World Series odds.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com currently list the Phillies at 5/4 to win the 2010 World Series. They’re currently being considered by many as the team to beat in baseball right now, thanks to their trio of outstanding starters (Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels), as well as a lineup that features heavy hitters Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth.
The Yankees are listed right behind the Phillies at 9/5 to win the World Series. The Bombers swept the Twins in the ALDS and then received some much-needed rest before taking on Texas in the ALCS. Their pitching needs to hold up, but their star-studded lineup featuring Mark Teixira, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter will be tough to contain.
The Rangers are third out of the four teams at 9/2. The Rays took them to the brink in the ALDS, but behind ace Cliff Lee, Texas beat Tampa three times on the road to secure a trip to the ALCS. This is a lineup that nobody wants to face right now and Lee continues to dominate in the postseason.
The Giants are considered the long shots to win the World Series at 11/2, but nobody should be counting this club out. Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez and Madison Bumgarner give the Giants a chance to win every night, although this is without a doubt the weakness offensive team left. They’re going to need big efforts out of Buster Posey, Aubrey Huff, Andres Torres and Pat Burrell the rest of the way.
