Well, not only can we tell you the odds, but we can also tell you what the payoff is.The sap true believer, <a href="http://deadspin.com/5851837/the-man-who-bet-the-cardinals-at-9991-when-they-were-out-of-the-race-is-looking-smart-and-rich-right-now" >Deadspin reports </a>, wagered $250 at 500-to-1 odds that Team Fredbird would take the NL pennant, along with another $250 at 999-to-1 odds that the Cardinals would win the World Series.Well, the fella (a St. Louisan, Deadspin says) is already $125,000 richer after the Cards upset the Phillies and Brewers in the NL playoffs, and he's three more St. Louis victories away from winning $250,000.http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Fan-in-Vegas-bet-Cardinals-to-win-World-Series-a?urn=mlb-wp24823
