Rangers among early favorites to get back to another World Series

The 2011 World Series has barely been laid to rest and already, the folks over at Bodog.com are giving us their latest picks for next year.
As expected, the Texas Rangers are among the top-five teams said to have a shot at next year’s title. Buffalo Bills, indeed.
The other squads right up there? The usual suspects, including the Phillies, the Yankees and the Red Sox.
Bodog has the Giants and Cards in the top-10 as well (with the Cards tied for fifth), which is further than I’d go, but hey, everyone’s got an opinion. Interesting to me is that the Cleveland Indians are now way, way down the list. Seventh worst shot in all of baseball. Just ahead of our beloved Mariners, listed at 60-1. Take it for what it’s worth. At this point in the season, before any off-season moves are made, it doesn’t appear that the bettors are relying on much other than projected payrolls and past performance in their picks.
Sometimes, though, that’s all it takes.
