Last month the St. Louis Cardinals narrowly escaped elimination to make it in to the National League Wild Card position. On October 19th, 2011 the same Cardinals will begin their journey to try and become World Series Champions for the first time since 2006. After an impressive fall season, knocking out the once unstoppable Atlanta Braves from a post season berth, and their postseason upsets of boththe Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers, the 2011 Cardinals finally have the betting odds say it's possible.
Standing in their way are the Texas Rangers. Coming off a dominanting performance in Game 6 vs. The Detroit Tigers to win the ALCS, the Rangers are back for their second consecutive World Series. While the Rangers came up short in 2010 to the San Francisco Giants, this team is looking to prove they are the best of 2011.
October 19th, 2011 marks the beginning of one of the best sporting events of the year, The World Series of Baseball. America's past-time championship series will begin in St. Louis at Busch Stadium.
While the Rangers go into the series as the favorite (Bodog Sportsbook have the Rangers as -155 favorites), the Cards start the series off with their ace Chris Carpenter with the odds are in favor of them winning (Bodog Sportsbook have the Cards winning game 1 as +125 favorites).
