The Boston Red Sox are one of the hottest teams in baseball, winning seven of their last ten and their impressive play, which currently has them leading the American League with a 32-20 record, isn't going unnoticed by oddsmakers.

As of Wednesday, Boston is the favorite to meet the Chicago Cubs in the World Series according to Bovada.
