MLB Trade Deadline Produces World Series Odds Climbers

It was a West-Coast trading frenzy this week and teams from Los Angeles and San Francisco were the big movers on the World Series odds menus at most sportsbooks.

The Dodgers were 14/1 this morning after a trio of trades in recent days delivered Hanley Ramirez, Shane Victorino and Brandon League. They were 22/1 a week ago.

Their city-mates from Anaheim were also active. The Angels traded for the best pitcher available (Zack Greinke) and moved from 10/1 to 15/2 into the third betting choice.

And the Giants grabbed Hunter Pence from the Phillies and surged from 15/1 odds to 12/1 odds.
