World Series Odds

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

It’s hard to believe that we are already a month into the regular season. The key thing to keep in mind with the first month, is to not overreact.

No team has yet to even play 30 games of their 162 game schedule. We are less than 20% of the way done. There’s so much that can happen from now until the summer.

With that said, it’s worth taking a look at the teams Vegas is paying respect to early. As well as the teams they have been quick to dump as contenders.

The Nationals and Astros are two teams that had some of the best odds coming into the year that have made a big move. Houston went from +1400 to +800 and Washington jumped from +1100 to +800.

As far as your big surprises according to the books. Those would be the Yankees, Orioles, Rockies and Diamondbacks. The biggest mover of the bunch being Arizona, which has gone from +7500 to +2800.

Looking at the teams that have fallen in the eyes of the books, there’s quite a few big names in the mix. Here’s a list of notable teams that have seen their odds get much worse. The Cardinals, Tigers, Giants, Rangers, Mariners, Blue Jays, Pirates and Angels. The biggest losers have to be San Francisco and Toronto. The Giants are +4000 after opening up at +1100. The Blue Jays have gone from +2200 up to +5000.

NL Favorite – Chicago Cubs (+400)

Chicago is not only the team to beat in the National League, but all of baseball. Not a surprise given the hype surrounding the defending champs. Chicago hasn’t got off to near the same start as last year. They are just a couple games over .500. However, they haven’t come close to playing to their potential. Especially on the offensive side of the ball. I look for this team to go off once the warm weather hits the midwest.

The best team in the NL so far? That would have to be the Nationals. Washington owns the biggest run differential in the NL at +45. The next best is the Diamondbacks at +32. Bryce Harper is back to playing at an MVP level. On top of that, Ryan Zimmerman has been unbelievable. As has the addition of catcher Matt Wieters. As long as the pitching stays healthy, this is a legit contender.

AL Favorite – Cleveland Indians (+600)

This spot had been held by the Red Sox for quite some time. It now belongs to the Indians and I think rightfully so. Not that Boston isn’t a good team, they just always get overvalued regardless of how good they actually are. Cleveland has arguably the best pitching staff in the AL, at least one of the top three. They also have an underrated offense that added back their best player from two years ago and one of the top free agents in Edwin Encarnacion.

Interestingly the Indians are just 2-games over .500 at the moment, but do look like the clear-cut favorite to win the AL Central. As for the best team in April. That’s tough to say. You could make a case for any of the following three in the Orioles, Yankees and Astros.
