A bettor at the South Point in Las Vegas is extremely bullish on the Houston Astros to win the World Series. In fact, he or she placed a $200,000 wager on Houston to win the Fall Classic on Tuesday.
The odds for this bet are +250, so the gambler would win $500,000. South Point Sportsbook Manager Jimmy Vaccaro tweeted out the ticket:
A.J. Hinch’s club owns a 103-54 record and has already clinched its third consecutive American League West division title.
Houston won its only World Series in franchise history by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games in 2017. The Astros were eliminated by the Boston Red Sox in five games during last year’s ALCS.
Houston is the current ‘chalk’ to win the World Series. The next-shortest odds belong to the Dodgers (+275), Yankees (+450), Braves (10/1), Twins (15/1), Cardinals (18/1) and Brewers (30/1) at Sportsbook.
