Tigers still favorites to win it all, according to oddsmaker

Despite winning just four of their last 14 games, and dropping three of four series, leaving them 17-12 in May, the Detroit Tigers are still favorites to win the American League Central, the American League, and the World Series, according to oddsmaker Bovada.

In fact, Bovada gives the Tigers better odds (6-to-1) to win it all than it did on May 1, when the Tigers were listed at 13-to-2.

The San Francisco Giants (7-to-1), Oakland A’s (9-to-1), St. Louis Cardinals (9-to-1) and Toronto Blue Jays (10-to-1) all improved their odds over the last month, while the preseason favorite Los Angeles Dodgers (8-to-1) slid another spot.

Bovada gives the Tigers 1-to-10 odds (4-to-11 last month) to win the AL Central, and 3-to-1 odds (13-to-4 last month) to win the pennant.

Miguel Cabrera (7-to-2) remains behind Mike Trout (8-to-5) in the odds for the AL Most Valuable Player award, while teammate Victor Martinez is sixth at 12-to-1 odds.

After ranking only behind Felix Hernandez in the odds for the AL Cy Young, Max Scherzer (15-to-2) and Justin Verlander (12-to-1) slipped to fifth and eighth, respectively.
