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.

Doc's Sports Thursday Free Play!
Thursday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #907 Cincinnati Reds over Miami Marlins (Thursday, 7:10pm EST) The season is slipping away from the Cincinnati Reds and it doesn’t appear that they are going to be able stop it. That’s because two of their best players are on the disabled list in Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. The Reds have are just 2-10 since the All-Star break and have now fallen below the .500 mark overall. But one guy they’ve been able to consistently rely on is ace Johnny Cueto. The 28-year old checks in at 11-6 with a 2.08 ERA in 22 starts in 2014. Amazingly, the consistent Cueto has allowed more than three earned runs just twice in those 22 outings. The Reds haven’t been able to plate many runs lately with their current injury situation, but they shouldn’t need many on Thursday. The Miami Marlins will have their work cut out for themselves against Cueto, and that will put the pressure on right-hander Tom Koehler. He’s had a solid season so far, but Koehler isn’t going to overpower anyone. He’s your prototypical run of the mill middle-rotation guy with a 3.91 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 21 starts. The Marlins have been playing better of late and have been talking about making some trades to go for it. I don’t buy it one bit and I’d be surprised if Miami stays in contention for much longer. They’re playing a bit over their heads this season due to some fortunate outcomes. They are 25-17 in one-run games compared to 17-23 for Cincinnati. Those records tend to regress towards .500 over time, so that means the Reds get better and the Marlins worse. Even with the injuries, this Reds teams is better and they have one of the top pitchers in the game on the mound. Take Cincinnati at a relatively cheap price.
