I don't mind it but at only 20-1. Did you bet it at a 7-11? I have seen as high as 40-1 just to win the American League.

It could be worse, at least you didn't bet Calgary to win the cup.

Anyone has a shot if they get hot at the right time.  Jays can hit and have a solid 1-2 Sp, rebuilt pen, and money/solid minor league system to trade with at the right time. 

Hopefully you didn't blow too much  on this.

I have some Enron stock I am still trying to unload if you have any money left. HaHa. just kidding.

The good news is, if 20-1 seems foolish, or stupidly low, it is only because someone considers those odds about right. The line is controlled by money, not the opinion of a bunch of miscreants on Covers. And, as someone said, the trick is making the playoffs, after that anything can happen. The World Series is not won by the best team in MLB, it is won by the hottest team remaining after October 1st.

I don't like your ticket, but I am not laughing my fat behind off either.

Worst part of this is that both my books BET365 & SI had it at 40-1 when I got home.
