Even though the Boston Red Sox won the World Series less than a month ago, the odds makers at Las Vegas betting site Bovada.lv have a different favorite for the 2014 World Series -- the Los Angeles Dodgers at 7/1.

The San Francisco Giants early forecasts have them second in the NL West with 18/1 odds to win the World Series, just behind the Oakland A's, who have 16/1 odds. The A's share the same odds with the Reds, Rangers, Braves, Ray and Yankees.
