At the quarter mark of the MLB season, the San Francisco Giants own the best record in all of baseball and the Oakland A's have the best record in the American League, but the pundits at Las Vegas betting website Bovada.lv aren't giving them the best odds to win it all this year.

The Giants, with an MLB-best 26-15 record in 2014, 49 home runs and a 2.10 bullpen ERA, have the sixth-best odds to win the World Series, tied with the Atlanta Braves  at 12/1. The Los Angeles Dodgers have the second best odds at 15/2. The other NL West foes -- Colorado Rockies (33/1), San Diego Padres (100/1) and Arizona Diamondbacks (300/1) -- rank outside the Top 14. The Giants have 6/1 odds to win the pennant.

Led by the strong pitching of Sonny Gray and Scott Kazmir, the A's, with an AL-best record of 25-16, have 10/1 odds, good for third in all of baseball. Rounding out the AL West are the Los Angeles Angels at 16/1, the Texas Rangers at 20/1, the Seattle Mariners at 40/1 and the rebuilding Hoston Astros last in baseball at 1000/1. The Athletics have 11/2 odds to win the AL Pennant.
