2020 world series odds

The Washington Nationals pulled off an amazing upset over the heavily favored Houston Astros. The Nationals weren’t exactly a long shot at the start of the MLB season but they weren’t near the top of the favorites list either.

The Nationals were ninth from the top and had odds of +1600 (16/1). There were a report of a handful of people cashing big futures tickets with those exact payout odds.

Sportsbooks made out well on the World Series. Their top three exposures did not hit. The Nationals were their fourth highest exposure.

The exposure list was compiled before the saga of “Mattress Mack”. This is the story of 68 year old Houston area businessman Jim McIngvale. He owns a large furniture and bedding business in Houston and promised to give store credit and refunds if the Astros win the series. His liabilities were said to be over $20 million on the promotion. So Mattress Mack hedged his liability by wagering over $11 million (to win $17m+) on the Houston Astros.

Sportsbooks in New Jersey and Mississippi took Jacks bets. He is on record as saying that Las Vegas wasn’t interested in his sizable bets. I bet now they wish they were.
