Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have made the New York Yankees 5/2 favorites to win the 2009 World Series. After signing starting pitchers CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett, as well as adding top free agent hitter Mark Teixeira, it’s easy to see why oddsmakes believe the Bronx Bombers will win baseball’s championship next season.

Last year’s World Series champs, the Philadelphia Philles, are currently 11/1 long shots to win a title this season. The Boston Red Sox (15/2), Chicago Cubs (7/1) and New York Mets (7/1) all have better odds to win than the Phillies, who are still trying to sign slugger Ryan Howard to a long-term contract.

The youthful Tampa Bay Rays won’t sneak up on anyone this year and that’s why oddsmakers have established their odds to win at 12/1. The AL West Champion Los Angeles Angels were given 11/1 odds, while everyone’s 2007 World Series darlings, the Detroit Tigers, were given 20/1 odds to win this year. After trading for Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis before the 2007 season, the Tigers of course, stumbled out of the gate and had a massively disappointing season.

If you’re big on long shot candidates, look no further than the Baltimore Orioles at 150/1, Kansas City Royals at 150/1, Pittsburgh Pirates at 200/1, San Diego Padres at 200/1 and Washington Nationals at 150/1. Remember, the Rays had 150/1 odds to win at most sports books before last season and then went all the way to the Series. So don’t count out any of the teams previously mentioned.

For odds to win on all the MLB teams this year, see below.
