Rockies have MLB's third-worst odds of winning World Series

Here's a list of MLB World Series, pennant and division title odds. Don't blow all of your money.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

There's a crappy "resort" town about 90 minutes west of Salt Lake City called Wendover. It's right on the Utah-Nevada state line, and the Nevada side is where people from up and down the Wasatch Front go to get their gambling fix. Prior to the start of each MLB season since I turned 21, I've made the trip to that wasteland to put $10 on the Rockies to win the World Series, just for the hell of it.

One year, I decided to be a risk-taker and put down $20. That year was 2007, when the Rockies entered the season with 75/1 odds of winning it all. Clearly, I should have placed the bet on the Rockies winning the NL pennant, but I digress.

Maybe I'll put down $20 again this year, as the Rockies enter the 2014 campaign with the same 75/1 World Series odds they had seven years earlier, according to Only the Marlins, Twins and Astros are seen by Vegas as having worse odds of winning a championship than the Rockies, who in addition have only a 40/1 shot of winning the pennant and a 16/1 chance of finishing atop their division.

The Dodgers boast MLB's best World Series odds at 13/2, and they're an easy 1/2 favorite to win the NL West.

But to hell with all of that ... $1500 sounds good right about now, does it not? Anyway, here's the full list:
