Detroit Tigers face San Francisco Giants in Major League Baseball World Series

The Detroit Tigers are all set to face the San Francisco Giants in a best-of-seven World Series to decide the champion of Major League Baseball. Fortunately for online betting, the sportsbooks are there will all the odds.

World Series Preview

The San Francisco Giants will have home advantage in the series, thanks to the National League's 8-0 defeat of the American League in the All Star game. The Giants finished the regular season 94-68 to win the NL West title, and fought back from 3-1 down to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS.

Detroit finished with six wins less in the regular season than their World Series opponents, but have clearly been the stars of the post-season to this stage, destroying the powerful New York Yankees in a 4-0 sweep to claim the title of American League Champion.

Championship Betting

Despite the Giants' superior record and home ground advantage, most Vegas and online bookmakers actually have Detroit starting favorite for the series, thanks mainly to the Tigers' superb form throughout the past month.

William Hill is offering wagers on World Series Outright, with Detroit at 4/7, and SF at 6/4. Likewise, 888sports has installed Detroit as initial favorite, quoting 8/13 on the Tigers and 11/8 on the Giants.

Regardless, this is shaping up as a close contest and one that all baseball fans should be watching.
