Bookies Never Lie
Monday, March 10, 2008
If you're anything like the Yankees Chick, you undoubtedly enjoy a journey out to Vegas or Atlantic "Vegas Junior" City for some sweet gambling/free drinks/A-Rod sighting action. The YC's limited (very...very...limited) cash dollars are generally surrendered to the $2/4 hold 'em dealers, but for those of you who prefer sitting around in the sports book lounge and putting your money on games and the like, I've got some tips for you.

Vegas's top bookies have been working out their lines all off-season, making notes of crucial trades (Johan's move to the Mets surely affected many an odd), free agent signings, injuries, etc, but I think things are sufficiently hammered out enough that we can start placing our bets*. Like last year, I've put together a nice succinct summary of some of the most interesting stats on which we you degenerate readers might like to gamble away the ol' college fund. Let's take a sneak peek!

The World Series is 7 months away, but Sportsbook has already picked their horse:


Surprise, surprise, the BoSox are on top. That's not shocking, as I will admit that they are probably the best team on paper, but I would have expected to see the Yankees ahead of the Mets, Santanamania or not. No matter - my money's on the Rays.

If you want to place a more specific bet, Sportsline also allows you to bet on how many wins a team will have at the end of the season. Before you bet, take a gander at the projected win totals put together by Baseball Prospectus:

Hey, I like that number next to "NYY"! Groovatron! Thanks, BP! In fact, I find it so magnificent that I shall do an entire post just on that. Stay tuned.

Vegas Insider
takes a look at who is going to reign supreme as Home Run King:

Ryan Howard4-1
Albert Pujols11-2
Prince Fielder
Adam Dunn
Alfonso Soriano
Big Fat Papi
Miguel Cabrera
Mark Tiexiera
Derek Jeter

Jeter's totally gonna win.

Ready to gamble? Who's up for a fiesta in the sportsbook of one of Vegas's finest hotels??

*Not that the YC would EVER participate in any such immoral activity. I am nothing if not a fine upstanding citizen. I swear.

    I'm surprised the Mets are ahead of the Yankees too.

    The way the Red Sox are falling with injuries right now, I'd expect your Yankees to have the same odds as my Red Sox.

    Surprised A-Rod isn't ahead of Howard there
