At the MGM in Las Vegas, Theo Epstein's arrival in Chicago was enough to affect the : ' 2012 World Series oddsâ†µ
The Cubs opened at 25-1 odds to win the 2012 World Series at the MGM Resorts sportsbooks in Las Vegas. That's lower than several other gambling outposts.â†µ
Did the Epstein hire affect the line?â†µ
"Slightly," wrote Jay Rood, vice president of race and sports at the MGM Resorts, in an email. "It might have been 40-1 before."â†µ
But if you're inclined to put a little cash on the Cubs in 2012, you might want to do so at the Las Vegas Hilton or Caesar's Palace, where the Cubs opened at 40-1 and 35-1, respectively.
