|2009 World Series Odds|
2009 World Series Odds: It's about time but can you believe the Yankees made the World Series? Game 1 of the World Series set to get underway Wednesday October 28th, so let's take a look at what the best online sportsbooks have to offer for the 2009 World Series odds. The defending champion Philadelphia Phillies have made the World Series for the second straight year and will be looking to defend their title against the MLB team with a payroll that is beyond the limits of what should be allowed. Although buying your way into the World Series isn't common practice it does appear that the New York Yankees were desperate this year to make baseball's biggest event. With a $200 million dollar payroll the New York Yankees will be looking for the win and according to the World Series odds set by bookmakers the Yankees are the -165 favorites to take game 1 of the World Series.
This years World Series is without a doubt going to be a battle of the bats and with Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Howard at the plate we can expect the runs to pour across the plate. The New York Yankees have not made a World Series since 2003 and coming off a disappointing 2008 season where the Yanks did not even make the playoffs this could be their year. It will not be easy though, facing a team who is looking to earn a second consecutive title.
The Philadelphia Phillies are listed with +145 World Series Odds and are baseball's defending champions and like a dream that you fall right back to sleep to they are back in the 2009 World Series. The Phillies will be looking to earn not only the World Series win but to become the first National League team to earn back-to-back title since the Cincinnati Reds accomplished the task back in 1975.
With New England getting it's first snow storm already this year could weather play a factor in the World Series that will go deep into November?
