What Kind of Odds Do the Twins Have of Winning World Series? The Longest
With more than half of the 2014 season in the books, the Minnesota Twins are one of just eight major league teams to not yet notch their 40th win.
In the American League, the Twins share that distinction with three other teams.
But in the eyes of Las Vegas oddsmakers, the Twins REALLY are among the worst of the worst in MLB.
Websites like VegasInsider.com have the Twins as one of just a trio of teams listed as 500-to-1 shots to win the World Series. The other two? The San Diego Padres and Houston Astros.
Adding further insult to the Twins? Their odds are longer than six other teams with lower winning percentages (Rangers, Red Sox, Phillies, Cubs, Diamondbacks, and Rockies)
