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.
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 Betting Futures Favorites & Predictions
We are right at the halfway point of August, which means there’s just a little over a month until the 2019 MLB regular-season comes to an end.
It’s been a couple weeks since we last looked at the odds and not a lot has changed at the top. The Astros (+225) and Dodgers (+275) are the clear-cut favorites to win the World Series. The only other teams with odds better than 15 to 1 are the Yankees (+425) and Braves (+900).
There’s four other AL teams that are in the mix and that’s the Twins (+1800), Indians (+1800), Rays (+3000) and A’s (+3500).
While there’s only few teams in the playoff race in the American League, the NL has 5 different teams that are with-in 3.5-games of the final Wild Card Spot.
The NL Central features a 3-team race that figures to go down to the wire with the Cubs (+1600), Cardinals (+2500) and Brewers (+3500).
The Braves are the favorites in the NL East at the moment, but the Nationals (+2200) are just 5.5-back. The Mets (+2000) and Phillies (+4000) are also in the mix. Mets have made quite a climb up this list. When we checked in early August NY was 25o to 1 and are now sitting at 20 to 1.
The Giants (+5000) and Diamondbacks (+10000) have no chance of catching the Dodgers in the NL West, but are both still within striking distance of a Wild Card spot.
World Series Prediction: Best Value
Washington Nationals +2200 – Right now my favorite value play would be the Nationals at +2200. It can be hard to feel overly confident with a team that is far from a lock to make the playoffs and likely need to earn a Wild Card to get in (5.5-games back of Atlanta in NL East). They got the offensive fire-power to make some noise. No one wants to face this team in the playoffs with their top 3 of Max Scherzer, Pat Corbin and Stephen Strasburg. Not to mention if they do have to play a Wild Card game, they have quite the luxury with one of these three almost assuredly getting the ball.
