KC Royals World Series Odds
As always for the past two decades, the economics of baseball have forced the Royals to be the bottom feeder of Major League Baseball. This can be observed in the Kansas City Royals odds for winning the World Series in 2009, listed at +6600. Though the Royals have such high odds, they still have some good talent on their team that is young, with room to grow. The Kansas City roster consists of many former high draft picks and top prospects, who now have major league experience, such as Alex Gordon, Billy Butler, Luke Hochevar and Mike Aviles. However, in the off-season the Royals made some quality acquisitions in hopes of competing in a tough AL Central and ultimately win the World Series in 2009. Players brought to the team through trades and free agency that should make an impact include Coco Crisp, Mike Jacobs, Kyle Farnsworth and Juan Cruz. These acquisitions considerably help the Royals batting order as Crisp provides an excellent top of the order hitter, as well as defender, while Jacobs provides a potential 30 home run bat. Farnsworth and Cruz help shore up a bullpen which was lackluster at best in 2008, and hopefully allow games to be given to closer Joakim Soria on a more frequent basis.
When looking at the Royals compared to the other teams in its division, and the whole league, it is obvious they are a cash strapped team. However Kansas City does have a lot of potential and could provide problems for other teams. The odds given to the Kansas City to win the 2009 World Series are listed at +6600. These odds mean that for every $100 bet cast on the Royals will net you $6700 if they win the 2009 World Series. Though the odds are stacked against them, the Royals have made excellent moves in hopes of improving on their 75-87 season. This makes them quite attractive to any betting man as an improvement of 7-10 games could throw them into the thick of the AL Central race and make them a playoff contender. A bet on the Royals would be a solid choice and would net you an excellent profit from their high odds if they were to win the World Series.
