The St. Louis Cardinals are now the favorite to win the 2012 World Series, according to the latest odds from Bovada.com. The site is giving 3/1 odds that the 2011 World Series champions repeat. Odds on a victory by their National League Championship opponents, The San Francisco Giants, are 11/4. In the American League, the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees are being given the same odds on taking it all, 5/2.
