Hot streak has Blue Jays favourites to win World Series

Have you got Blue Jays fever yet? You wouldn't be alone if you answered affirmatively. In the midst of a 10-game winning streak and now in first place in the AL East, even odds-makers are getting excited by the hottest team in baseball.

Bodog Canada currently has the Jays at four-to-one odds to win the World Series, which puts them ahead of the Kansas City Royals (five-to-one), and the both Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals at eight-to-one.

That's one hell of a turn around. Before GM Alex Anthopoulos revamped his team at the trade deadline, the Jays were considered a long shot for the championship (25-to-one). The playoffs didn't even seem likely. Let's see how excited everyone gets if the team can keep this streak alive.
