Mets Better Bet Than Yankees for World Series

Just saw on Yankees Chick that the Vegas odds have our beloved Mets at 5-1 to win the 2008 World Series. The Red Sox are listed at 4-1 and the Yankees at 6-1.

Would that be due to Johan?

BTW, the Tampa Bay (undevilish) Rays are at 100-1, for you high rollers.
