The 2010 National League Championship Series kicks off this Saturday in Philadelphia and early lines have the Philadelphia Phillies as heavy favorites over the San Francisco Giants. Most lines currently have the Phillies sitting as -260 favorites. For those that don’t know much about gambling, that means you have to bet $260 to win $100 (plus your original bet). The San Francisco Giants are currently +200 to win the series, which means if you bet $100 you would win $200 (plus your bet back) if the Giants pulled the upset.
The Phillies have the combination of pitching and hitting that could be tough for the Giants, but if the Giants pitching staff continues its strong run this could be a very interesting series, particularly if you’re looking to win a few bucks.
