World Series odds: Mets remain ranked fifth

Despite a recent slip up in their return to Citi Field, the chances of a title in Queens have not changed since the last time Vegas odds were released.

The Mets were given the fifth-highest probability of winning the World Series with 9/1 odds in Bovada's latest list revealed earlier today. The Mets' chances have not changed since Bovada's previous rankings released on August 13 and since then they have an 11-7 record.

With an overall record of 73-59 heading into tonight's game and a 6.5 game lead in the National League East, the Mets were given 1/10 odds (i.e., a bet of $10 wins $1 plus the original bet) to win the division while the Washington Nationals (66-65) hang on at 5/1 odds (i.e., a bet of $1 wins $5 plus the original bet). The Mets are ranked third behind the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers for the best chances at winning the NL pennant.

Despite the Cardinals, Kansas City Royals, and Pittsburgh Pirates all holding better records, the Toronto Blue Jays are favored to win the World Series with 7/2 odds, having won eight of their last 10 games. Toronto's Josh Donaldson is the favorite to win the AL MVP—slightly ahead of Mike Trout—while the Nats' Bryce Harper was picked ahead of Paul Goldschmidt to take home NL MVP honors.

Here is the complete list of updated World Series odds from Bovada.
