2014 MLB World Series Odds
The World Series, also commonly known as the "Fall Classic" is the culmination of the Major League Baseball playoffs. The winners from the American League Championship Series (ALCS) and National League Championship Series (NLCS) square off in a best of 7 series. The home field advantage for the World Series is determined by the league that wins the MLB All-Star Game. This year the World Series will start on October 23rd.
The World Series (a.k.a. October Classic, The Series) first appeared in 1903 in a match between the Boston Americans (now Red Sox) from the American League and the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. The Sox won the series five games to three, giving credibility to the American League (The American League was a newly founded division). The following year, the Red Sox once more made the Series but opponents New York Giants refused to play on grounds that the American League was inferior and that there were no formalized rules for the championship. Quick to respond, the MLB instituted the new World Series in 1905 as a permanent fixture. The leagues would meet annually in a series of games for the professional baseball championship of the world.
The Fall Classic boasts an incredible history and for decades was the only time that the American League ever squared off against the National League. Of course that has changed now with inter-league play, but the World Series is still a truly unique sporting event that every fan should experience at least once. If this year’s World Series is anything like the regular season, then we are in for another instant classic.
