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
While all the attention right now is on March Madness, baseball is back in action for good this week. The official MLB Opening Day is Thursday, March 28th. However, the Mariners and A’s did already get their seasons started with a 2-game series in Tokyo, Japan.
When we last checked on the odds back in the middle of February, guys like Manny Machado and Bryce Harper were still free agents. Both have signed with new clubs and several other big names have landed at new locations.
As you can see from the odds listed above, oddsmakers have a handful of teams that they class slightly above a large group of contenders.
You don’t see it often, but there is no consensus team to beat going into the new year. The Red Sox, Yankees and Astros all have odds of 6 to 1 or +600. Right behind them you have the Dodgers at +700 and the Phillies at +850. Seeing how those are the only other two teams with odds of 10 to 1 or better, I would class them with the 3 at the top.
Hard to argue with those 5 teams being listed in their own group given the talent on hand. With that said, I think there’s a number of teams in the next tier that are more than capable of making it even more crowded at the top.
The top team in that next tier would be the Cubs at +1100, followed by their division rivals in the Cardinals (+1200) and Brewers (+14000). Indians and Braves also come in at +1400, while the Nationals are at +1800, Rockies at +2000 and the Mets at +2700.
As far as teams not really given a chance that could surprise, I think that’s what this next group should be classified as. The A’s lead the charge at +2700, followed by the Rays at +3500, Padres at +4000, Twins at +4500 and Angels at +5000.
Those are the only teams right now with odds at 50 to 1 or better to win the title. The cream of the crop in terms of the bottom feeders would be the Diamondbacks, Mariners and Reds, who are all sitting at +6600. The Pirates (+7000), White Sox (+7500) and Blue Jays (+9000) are the only other teams with odds better than 100 to 1.
One thing to note when it comes to the “tankers” the books really don’t like the Orioles this year. Baltimore has the worst odds at 600 to 1 (+60000). The Marlins are next worst at 350 to 1 (+35000).
