The Oakland A’s won’t be bernie-leaning to the 33-1 odds, given to them by Las Vegas betting site Bovada, to win the 2013 World Series. The A's odds to win the AL pennant are 16-1.

An improbable run to the 2012 AL West title and a comeback victory in game four of the ALDS against the Detroit Tigers didn’t stop odds-makers from giving 14 teams better odds of winning this year’s fall classic. Of that group, six didn’t make the postseason and three – the Reds, Nationals and Rangers - were eliminated in the divisional series or Wild Card round.

The Toronto Blue Jays are the favorites at 7-1, and the defending AL champion Detroit Tigers follow at 8-1. Here’s how the A’s and the rest of the AL stack up:

  • Toronto Blue Jays - 7/1
  • Detroit Tigers - 8/1
  • Los Angeles Dodgers - 17/2
  • Washington Nationals - 17/2
  • Los Angeles Angels - 9/1
  • Atlanta Braves - 14/1
  • Cincinnati Reds - 14/1
  • New York Yankees - 14/1
  • San Francisco Giants - 14/1
  • Texas Rangers - 14/1
  • Philadelphia Phillies - 18/1
  • St. Louis Cardinals - 20/1
  • Tampa Bay Rays - 25/1
  • Boston Red Sox - 30/1
  • Oakland Athletics - 33/1
