By Larry Fine KANSAS CITY, Missouri, Oct 29 (Reuters) – Buses roll through the downtown streets alternating their destination with the message “Go Royals” — the same rousing chant that took over Pizza Bar near closing time in the Power & Light district. Nearly three decades of frustration for baseball fans in Kansas City has faded with the Cinderella story of the Royals, who have taken the San Francisco Giants to a deciding Game Seven of the World Series. The Royals have been underdogs from the start against their fellow wild card team from San Francisco, but are now rated slight favorites to beat a Giants team gunning for their third World Series title in five years. Kansas City is in the postseason for the first time in 29 years, since Hall of Famer George Brett, now a Royals vice president of baseball operations, led the team to the 1985 title in a Game Seven win over intra-state rival St. Louis Cardinals.

Well, distraught Los Angeles Dodgers fans, here’s something that might cheer you up a tad bit after watching your bitter rivals win the World Series — the Dodgers are the early favorites to win the 2015 World Series, according to online sportsbook Bovada . The Washington Nationals share that honor with the Dodgers. Both teams, which were knocked out in the NLDS this season, are listed at 15/2 odds. The San Francisco Giants, whose World Series win hasn’t even dried yet, ranked fifth at 12/1. The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels are just ahead of the Giants, both carrying 10/1 odds. Here’s Bovada’s complete rundown: Los Angeles Dodgers 15/2 Washington Nationals 15/2 Detroit Tigers 10/1 Los Angeles Angels 10/1 San Francisco Giants 12/1 St. Louis Cardinals 12/1 Kansas City Royals 16/1 Seattle Mariners 18/1 Baltimore Orioles 20/1 Oakland Athletics 20/1 Pittsburgh Pirates 20/1 Atlanta Braves 22/1 Boston Red Sox 22/1 New York Yankees 22/1 Cleveland Indians 25/1 Cincinnati Reds 33/1 Tampa Bay Rays 33/1 Texas Rangers 33/1 Toronto Blue Jays 33/1 Chicago White Sox 40/1 Milwaukee Brewers 40/1 New York Mets 40/1 Chicago Cubs 50/1 Miami Marlins 50/1 San Diego Padres 66/1 Philadelphia Phillies 75/1 Arizona Diamondbacks 100/1 Colorado Rockies 100/1 Houston Astros 100/1 Minnesota Twins 100/1 For context’s sake, we’ll point out that the Dodgers topped the list when Bovada released its day-after-the-World Series odds last year too. There were listed at 7/1. The Giants were 18/1. We all know how both of those worked out. More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mike Oz is an editor for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.
