Blue Jays odds world series

Jays picked as favourites to play for World Series

Come off their sweep of the Texas Rangers in the ALDS, the Toronto Blue Jays are starting to climb oddsmakers ranks when it comes to the World Series. Entering the playoffs, the Jays carried odds of +750 (or 15/2) to win the pennant. Now, entering the ALCS, those odds have improved to +225 (or 9/4).

At this point, the Jays still trail the Cubs as favourites to win it all. Chicago presently carries odds of +160 (8/5) to take the World series this year, though Toronto has closed the gap considerably based on its current hot streak. In terms of relative probability, the Jays come in at nearly 31 per cent, while the Cubs are ranked at 38.5 per cent.

In any case, the prognosis looks good for the next series, assuming that you put any faith this sort of stuff. Cleveland has been pegged at +375 (15/4) to go all the way, which gives the Jays a considerable edge in oddsmakers eyes heading into the ALCS.

Let's hope they're right!
