The Chicago Cubs have never been the same since their epic playoff collapse of 2008 when they lost to the upstart Los Angeles Dodgers as a heavy favorite with the baseball betting odds. Manager Lou Piniella retired before the season ended as the team imploded and finished with a very disappointing record of 75-87 to rank as one of the biggest money losers on the board.
Part of the problem with the Cubs is the lack of board value that they have due to their immense public popularity as they attract a lot of ignorant and “heart” money that more often than not turns them into an overlay.
General Manager Jim Hendry is on the hot seat as second year owner Tom Ricketts is pouring a lot of money into the team and wants results…NOW! Mike Quade is the new manager.
San Francisco is riding high after their first ever World Series title since their days as the New York Giants. The Giants rallied late in the season to overtake the San Diego Padres in the National League West and finished 92-70 with the baseball lines while sporting the number one pitching staff in the big leagues with a team earned run average of 3.36.
With Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain leading the rotation the Giants certainly will be hard to sweep in any series and their offense showed its full potential in the 2010 playoffs.
The Chicago Cubs opened as a +3000 choice at Sports-Gambling to win the World Series while the San Francisco Giants were a +1400 betting baseball choice to repeat as World Series champions.
