2011 World Series Schedule: Rangers Start as Narrow Favorites

2011 world series schedule

The 2011 World Series schedule has been set (see below), with the inaugural game between St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers taking place tomorrow at St. Louis.

The Rangers begin the best-of-seven series as narrow favorites, with odds around the -135 mark (so bet $1.35 on them to win an additional $1.00). The Cardinals’ round one dismissal of the Phillies should not be overlooked, however – on its day, this is a team that can take anyone down. Let us know who you’re backing in the comments!

Game 1: Wednesday, October 19 – @ St. Louis Cardinals
Game 2: Thursday, October 20 – @ St. Louis Cardinals
Game 3: Saturday, October 22 – @ Texas Rangers
Game 4: Sunday, October 23 – @ Texas Rangers
Game 5: Monday, October 24 – @ Texas Rangers
Game 6: Wednesday, October 26 – @ St. Louis Cardinals
Game 7: Thursday, October 27 – @ St. Louis Cardinals

The 2011 World Series is set. The American League champion Texas Rangers will take on the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals in the best of seven fall classic.

Last night the Cardinals punched their ticket to the 2011 World Series by thumping the Milwaukee Brewers 12-6 in Game 6 of the NLCS.

So who will win this 2011 fall classic? The Texas Rangers come into this series as a slight favorite at -135 to beat the St. Louis Cardinals (meaning you have to bet $1.35 on Texas to win $1.00) but don’t be so quick to run and bet the farm on Texas. A team like St. Louis is tough to read. Give these guys credit. In round one, they knocked off everyone’s favorite to win the World Series for the next 10 seasons, the Philadelphia Phillies. That was amazing in itself.

Cardinals 1st baseman Albert Pujols is one of this generations best hitters and will surely relish the underdog roll.

The Rangers are stacked from top to bottom, as they come into the Series with one of the best line-ups in the majors. Led by Josh Hamilton and ALCS MVP Nelson Cruz, these guys can mash with the best of them. This will be a great series.
