After nearly seven months of baseball, only the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals remain. One of these two teams are going to break their long drought, with the Royals last World Series win in 1985 and the Mets in 1986. With the two teams clearly separating themselves from the rest of the MLB, Bodog has opened both teams at -110 to win the Fall Classic.
The Mets opened their postseason with a five-game battle against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but then went on to sweep the Chicago Cubs. That has given the Mets a full week off between the NLCS and the World Series, something that may not be in their favor.
The rest has allowed the Mets to set their rotation exactly the way they want with Matt Harvey going Game 1 to be followed by Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz in order.
The Royals had two difficult series, first winning Games 4 and 5 against the Houston Astros to get through the ALDS and then got past the Toronto Blue Jays in the ALCS in a series filled with ridiculous moments.
The Kansas City Royals have yet to name their official rotation, but it is scheduled to be announced Monday.
The Mets and Royals have rarely faced off against one another, with their last regular season series coming in August 2013, with the Royals winning the series 2-1.
