Every MLB team that has ever won the World Series will tell you that they needed at least one lucky break to go their way in order to help them achieve their goal.

Even the most potent teams in history needed something unexpected to help give them a push.

For the Cincinnati Reds in 1975, they received a gift when Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee inexplicably threw an eephus pitch to Tony Perez in the top of the sixth inning in Game 7 of the 1975 World Series. Perez turned on the pitch, launching a two-run home run that allowed the Reds to climb back from a 3-0 deficit.

The San Francisco Giants caught some major breaks on their way to a World Series title last year. Johnny Cueto's injury in Game 1 of the ALDS, Angel Pagan's ground ball that hit the third base bag against the Detroit Tigers, and Gregor Blanco's perfect bunt that somehow stayed inside the chalk are great examples.

Here then is one lucky break that each 2013 MLB World Series contending team will need to aid their quest.

For the purposes of clarification, contending teams will be the top 13 teams and their current odds as posted by the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino).
