|Although, the New York Yankees opening match isn’t until next week, Aces.com's oddsmakers already favor them to win the World Series in October. An Alex Rodrigues Grand Slam in Monday night’s 13-2 win over the Oakland A’s showed just how dominant the Big Apple could be in the 2006 season. |
The Yankees are currently at 7-2 to win World Seriesm with the St. Louis Cardinals coming in close at 7-1. The reigning champs, the White Sox, are at 9-2.
The Yankees home opener is next Tuesday against Kansas City as the Cardinals move in to the new Busch Stadium for their home opener on Monday. Odds on next week’s games will be posted at Aces.com this weekend.
“I personally like the Yankees,” says Aces.com Manager Rene Quesada. “You either love the pin-stripes club or hate them, and I love them for sure. Not so much because of ‘The Boss’ Steinbrenner but because of Babe Ruth and Joltin' Joe Dimaggio and all the history there is in the team from the Bronx.”
Quesada continued, “We’ve got way more future bets and props betting options than any hotel in Las Vegas.” About the only MLB prop not included in Aces.com’s long list of betting options is whether or not the Florida Marlins will move to Las Vegas.
“Of course everyone at Aces.com would like to have an MLB team in Vegas,” said Quesada, “It sounds like they may be close to a deal in Dade County, but they’ve been close before. When negotiations stalled in 2004, Vegas was only to happy to talk and we’re still all ears.”
