Why the hell was St Louis to win the world series paying that high of odds? Aren't they good?

Only the Yankees have won more World Series than the Cards.

Well they were the odds in september i believe when they were 4.5 games out of the wild card position. for them to come back and beat out the braves was nearly impossible. everything just fell into place and the phillies had to sweep the braves to put the cardinals into the playoffs. their genious plan backfired ha.

He made the bets when they were 4.5 games out of the playoff wildcard with only 20 games left. A longshot to make the playoffs. Even longer to win the NL pennant. Super long to win series. I guess they set the odds of all the teams still in the pennant race and they were a real longshot. Likewise for the series. Most of the action probably was on other teams. I am sure they made money on the total pool.

With a payout like that, it's doubtful they made money on this. Baseball betting is a much smaller univesrse than football. A $350,000 hit would be manageable in football.

I read an article that said the head of the Sportsbook for MGM said if that guy won it was not going to be good!
