Bovada has released their latest baseball odds, and as of right now, the Rangers are considered the second-best bet in the American League to make it to the 2013 World Series.

The Detroit Tigers are 7:2 favorites to win the American League pennant, but the Rangers currently have the second-best odds, at 11:2. Boston and Oakland are both at 6:1, the Orioles are 7:1, and the Blue Jays are at 15:2. Bovada has the Tigers as the favorites to win the World Series, at 13:2, with St. Louis next at 15:2, then Atlanta at 8:1. Boston and Texas are both at 11:1.

The Rangers are 4:5 favorites to win the A.L. West, with Oakland at even money, Los Angeles at 9:1, the Mariners at 150:1, and the Astros at 1000:1.

The Rangers also have a couple of pitchers listed as possible Cy Young winners. Yu Darvish is tied with Clay Buchholz for the second-best odds at 4:1, behind favorite Max Scherzer, who is at 7:4. Joe Nathan, meanwhile, is among a group that includes Chris Sale, Alex Cobb and Mariano Rivera at 25:1.
