However, this morning you can freely get 20-1 on the Red Sox winning the World Series.
This has to be at least 'considered'.
Sure, Boston might hit another road block and regress back to the losing ways of their troubled start. However, 20-1 is serious value for such a talented squad. If Boston manages to maintain their current path of wins against quality teams, that 20-1 will be sliced to 10-1, then 8-1 and then lower until they are right back at their season starting position of 4-1.
That 20-1 is artificial and the product of Boston's poor start. Any team with Beckett, Lester and Lackey as it's front three, and Clay Bucholz as its number five starter should not be 20-1.
Any team with the potential of Ellsbury, Pedroia, Youkilis, Victor Martinez and the resurgent David Ortiz should not be 20-1.
Any team that can bounce back from such a moral sapping loss in new York should not be 20-1.
Grab it now while you can, it's a superb 'value' bet, you can place a small wager and get rewarded richly if Boston continues to turn things around and subsequently makes a run at the World Series.
If they hit another slump, what else would you have done with that $10?
