Each year we take a detailed look at the Las Vegas odds to win the World Series. We don’t waste any time after the previous season is in the books. In fact, the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 championship on Nov. 2. We had the lines up on this page for 2017 by Nov. 5.
We continue to update this page with the latest odds. Each time we update, we make a checkpoint to reference how the odds have changed. You will also see a probability percentage for each to win the title based on their current odds. There is also a search feature you can use to look only at a specific team.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the money line odds format is used on this page. Basically, if the number is a positive one then if you bet $100 that is how much you would win. If the number is negative you need to bet that number to cash $100.
For example, if the odds are +160 then a $100 bet would win you $160. If the odds are -120 a $120 bet is needed to cash $100.
Vegas MLB Betting Favorites to Win World Series & Future Predictions
The race for the postseason is heating up, as we head toward the final stretch run of the 2017 season. Here’s a look at the updated odds to win the World Series.
NL Favorite – Los Angeles Dodgers (+210)
After seemingly winning every time they took the field, the Dodgers have recently come back to earth. At least for the time being. Even after a dismal 1-9 record over their last 10 games, they still have a 12.5-game lead over the Diamondbacks in the NL West. They are also a healthy 9-games in front of the Nations for the top seed and home field through out the NL playoffs.
Don’t be surprised to see the Dodgers continue to struggle to live up to those lofty expectations the rest of the regular season. At least early on in September. It would be wise for them to at least try to turn it back at the end of the month. The most important thing for LA is be as healthy as they can be when the playoffs get here.
AL Favorite – Houston Astros (+500)
It wasn’t too long ago the Astros looked like a lock to win the American League. That’s no longer the case. Cleveland has closed the game to a mere 3-games. While some of that has to do with Houston not playing well, it’s more about how well the Indians are playing. You just have to remind yourself that even the best teams in the game go through rough stretches.
This team was trending in the wrong direction well before Hurricane Harvey hit home. I’m sure that wasn’t an easy process for the Astros to deal with, as they had to play home games in other teams’ stadiums. However, it could be something that this team builds on. They aren’t just playing for each other anymore. They are playing for their city. We saw the same natural disaster with Hurricane Katrina and it helping guide the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl win not too long ago.
