The Cardinals are playing in their 18th World Series. They are 10-7, with their last two titles coming in 1982 and 2006.

The Rangers have been in Texas since 1972. They are 0-1 in World Series play, having lost to the Giants last year.

Beyond the Box Score:
Rangers in 5 ... As of right now, all four St. Louis winning outcomes are less likely than all four likely Texas winning outcomes. We expect Texas to sweep more than we expect St. Louis to win the series in any number of games.
21 of the 25 "experts" at ESPN also pick the Rangers.
