U.S. Womens Gymnastics (+200)
They crown a Super Bowl, NBA and Stanley Cup champ every year. But the Olympics only roll around once every four. The U.S. Women's Gymnastics squad captured the nation's heart with "The Flying Squirrel" and McKayla Maroney's infamous "Silver Medal Smirk".
Baltimore Ravens (+300)
The Ravens went through hell to win Super Bowl XLVII, knocking off the Colts, Broncos and Patriots before holding off the 49ers to win the Lombardi Trophy.
Oklahoma Women's Softball (+400)
The Sooners' big swingers thumped the competition en route to an NCAA title, outscoring opponents 51-8 in the Super Regionals and 28-8 in the College World Series.
Miami Heat (+400)
ESPN will have sold its soul if it hands the hardware over to LeBron & Co. I don't know if fans can sit through another cocky posedown from James so soon after winning Finals MVP.
Alabama Crimson Tide (+550)
The Crimson Tide rolled Notre Dame in the BCS Championship for their second straight national title. Do you think Nick Saban really gives two $hits about an ESPY?
Chicago Blackhawks (+550)
The Blackhawks dominated the lockout-shortened NHL season, topping Boston in the Stanley Cup final. However, hockey gets no love from ESPN on a regular basis. Why should the ESPYs be any different?
San Francisco Giants (+800)
If the Yankees or Red Sox had won the World Series, then maybe they'd have a better shot at winning "Best Team", due to ESPN's love affair with the franchises. The Giants just aren't sexy enough, according to these odds.

1* St. Louis (7:15 ET): I fully expect the Cardinals to be a popular side today and for good reason. Not only did they shut LA out Friday (won 3-0), improving to an impressive 19-5 at Busch Stadium, but they also have Michael Wacha starting tonight. The team is a pefect 9-0 w/ Wacha on the hill as he's turned in a 1.87 ERA & 1.040 WHIP.
If the teams on top of the National League have one thing in common, it's that they are all dominant at home & fairly pedestrian on the road. Speaking of "on top," no longer is that where the Dodgers reside when it comes to the NL West as yday's loss allowed the Giants (won 5 straight) to pass them in the standings. Meanwhile, the Cards have also won five straight and come in as my top ranked team in all of MLB entering play Saturday.
After being shut out Friday, facing Wacha here clearly does the Dodgers no favors. There are six pitchers (in all of MLB) currently at +7.2 units or better & Wacha leads the list at +9.5. There has only been one start all season where he's allowed more than 2 ER. Last time out, all he allowed was a single unearned run in a 6-1 win over Kansas City. While you'd like to see his strikeout rate a little higher, the fact is the Dodgers have not scored a run on the road in the last 37 innings and were shutout by Wacha for 13 2/3 innings in the 2013 NLCS.
Los Angeles starter Carlos Frias just allowed 10 runs in four innings his last start, a record for any Dodgers pitcher in that short a timeframe. 1* St. Louis
