Vegas says the Rockies are, um, longshots to win next year’s World Series

You’re not going to believe this, but Bovada LV doesn’t think the Colorado Rockies stand much of a chance.

The Chicago Cubs are your 2016 World Series champions. After a 108-year wait, they finally won their third World Series in franchise history.

The oddsmakers in Las Vegas didn’t wait long to start forecasting next year’s World Series champions. Bovada LV released its first round of odds Thursday. You’re not going to believe this, but Bovada LV doesn’t think the Colorado Rockies stand much of a chance.


The Rockies are +6600 to win the 2017 World Series, meaning if you bet $100 on them to win today and they (miraculously) did, you’d win $6,600.

Unsurprisingly, the Cubs are the favorite to repeat at +350.
