MLB Odds: Albert Pujols Prop Bet

Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals are the World Series champions, but what team will the slugging first baseman be playing for next season?

That's the subject of a prop bet at Bovada as baseball enters its postseason. Pujols is set to be a free agent, and the Cardinals are just the second-favorite at 2/1 odds to retain his services.

The frontrunner? According to the oddsmakers at Bovada it's the Chicago Cubs, who might be looking to make a splash at the outset of Theo Epstein's new regime. The Cubs are at 7/4 odds to sign Pujols and take him away from their division rival.

The Los Angeles Angels are next at 9/2, followed by the Washington Nationals at 7/1. Looking for one of the marquee clubs to sign Pujols and shift someone else in their lineup? The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are both at 12/1 odds for the wager.

Here's how the Albert Pujols MLB prop bet breaks down at Bovada:

Who will sign Albert Pujols to his next contract?

Chicago Cubs 7/4
St. Louis Cardinals 2/1
Los Angeles Angels 9/2
Washington Nationals 7/1
New York Yankees 12/1
Boston Red Sox 12/1
Los Angeles Dodgers 12/1
San Francisco Giants 12/1
Texas Rangers 15/1
Toronto Blue Jays 30/1

The Cardinals aren't the favorite on the current World Series odds board at Bovada either, as they sit behind four other teams at 14/1 on that list. St. Louis will be looking for a new manager this offseason as Tony La Russa retired on Monday after 16 years in charge of the club.

The Philadelphia Phillies lead the way at 4/1 odds to make up for a disappointing 2011 season and win the World Series in 2012, with the Yankees at 13/2 and the Red Sox at 8/1. The Texas Rangers have lost two straight World Series; they're at 12/1 to finally get the job done next season.

Here's how the World Series odds board shapes up for 2012:
