Bovada has Detroit as a 13/2 (+650) favorite to win the World Series. The Tigers were swept by the San Francisco Giants in last year’s World Series. The St. Louis Cardinals, the favorites in the National League, are 7/1 to win the World Series. They’re followed by the Atlanta Braves (8/1), Boston Red Sox (9/1), and Los Angeles Dodgers (9/1). 
Scherzer, who won 13 times before the All-Star Break, is a 3/2 favorite to win his first Cy Young. Boston's Clay Buchholz and the Seattle Mariners’ Felix Hernandez are also in the mix.
The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright is a 3/1 favorite to win the NL Cy Young, followed closesly by the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw (4/1).
