Have you guys checked these out at Pinnacle. Some are 2000 to 1 like:  
 
SF/COL/LA/ARI  
 
which is definitely possibly with some injuries and a surprise year out of COL, etc. Take a look at them and which ones do you think have any shot.  
 
A small $100 bet yields 200k  
 
And, you have no problem of getting paid by Pinny if you are able to get lucky and hit one.

Nothing in the AL is worth it out of the 2000 to 1 shots. EAST will by NY/BOS 1-2 or vice versa. In the Central, you have to bet that Minny will be 4th or 5th and same in the west, you need ANA last. Only division that seems to have a shot of hiting a 2000 to 1 shot is NL West IF Colorado can surprise people with a cinderella run and end up 2nd. SD/LA/SF are all about even IMO and an injury or two can swing things drastically.

Agreed Mookie. I like the one you chose (first one) because of the odds. For reference sake, the odds of picking #1,2,3,4 out of a five team division of perfectly evenly matched teams is 120:1, so the odds on that one are about 17 times that baseline. Boomer's payout would be 5 times less than baseline, so the longer shot is the better play, IMO....

Yeah Dan, I'm ready. Let's do it.  
 
In the post above I meant I liked your longshot perfecta, not Mookie's. I misread who posted what.

I'm not even sure if I am going to bet any of these 2000 to 1 shots, I went through all of them and they all seem preposterous. The one I posted is the only one that seems like it has a chance if SD falls apart and Colorado has a surprise season.

I wouldnt take those huge ones, look at the odds, they are all the same for the hard to hit ones. That tells me the odds should be higher but they just put a max on it.  
 
I'm looking at a couple of em with slightly lower odds but still good enough odds to make it a for fun bet. Thinking possibilties like oakland winning the al west and texas doing well.

I took FLA/WSH/PHA/ATL and FLA/WSH/ATL/PHA for $5 each. First one pays about $8700 and the second one is over $6000. If Washington really surprises and the Mets bomb I have a shot......

I'm a greedy person. I'll probably end up betting 100 on one just in hopes of getting a nice 200k payday at the end of the year.  
 
I'm not high on the mets either this year.
