Mets vs Royals: World Series Prices

New York Mets Daniel Murphy celebrates

After nearly seven months of baseball, only the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals remain. One of these two teams are going to break their long drought, with the Royals' last World Series win coming in 1985 and the Mets' in 1986. With the two teams clearly separating themselves from the rest of the MLB, Bovada opened both teams at -110 to win the Fall Classic.

The Mets opened their postseason with a five-game battle against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but then went on to sweep the Chicago Cubs. That has given the Mets a full week off between the NLCS and the World Series, something that may not be in their favor.

The rest has allowed the Mets to set their rotation exactly the way they want with Matt Harvey going Game 1, to be followed by Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz in order.

The Royals had two difficult series, first winning Games 4 and 5 against the Houston Astros to get through the ALDS and then got past the Toronto Blue Jays in the ALCS in a series filled with tension and ridiculous moments.

The Kansas City Royals will turn to Edinson Volquez in Game 1 followed by Johnny Cueto, Yordano Ventura and Chris Young.

Home field advantage has had a siginificant impact on the outcome of the World Series since 2003, when the winning league in the All-Star Game won the coveted position in the Fall Classic. In the 12 World Series' since 2003, the team with home field advantage is 8-4, including winning five of the past six.

The Mets and Royals have rarely faced off against one another, with their last regular season series coming in August 2013, with the Royals winning the series 2-1.
