Las Vegas is giving the Giants the eight best odds and the A's the 11th best odds to win in 2014. (USATSI)

The A's were 96-66 in the 2013 regular season, tied for the third best record in all of baseball and good for a second consecutive AL West title. The Giants finished the year 76-86, tied for third place in the NL West and well outside the playoff picture. Yet the oddmakers are giving San Francisco a better shot to win the 2014 World Series than Oakland.

Las Vegas betting website Bovada.lv lists the Dodgers as the favorites to win the 2014 World Series with 13/2 odds. The Giants are tied with the Los Angeles Angels for eighth best odds at 16/1. And the A's are tied with the Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays for 11th best odds at 20/1. 

Below is the website's complete odds to win the 2014 World Series:
