Next season World Series odds

Check out next season World Series odds for every team as well as an outlook for the 2023 MLB season.

Los Angeles Dodgers (+500): For the sixth straight offseason, the Dodgers open as World Series favorites. They’ve come through with one championship in 2020 after losing in the World Series in 2017 and 2018. Expect another loaded roster from Big Blue with Walker Buehler set to return from Tommy John surgery and Aaron Judge standing out as their biggest free agency target.     

Houston Astros (+600): The Astros got their championship in 2022 to back up a tainted title in 2017. Justin Verlander got his World Series victory and the veteran could pass the torch to young studs like Framber Valdez, Yordan Alvarez, and rookie SS Jeremy Pena, the World Series MVP.

Atlanta Braves (+800): It seemed like the Braves were poised to repeat as N.L. champs and potentially beat the Astros again, but they ran into a red-hot Phillies team in the NLDS. Rookies Michael Harris and Spencer Strider lead a young corps that should only grow stronger as the Braves’ elite scout system reveals more gems. 

New York Yankees (+900): Yankees fans booed Aaron Judge for his postseason struggles and now they could lose their slugger and the likely A.L. MVP in free agency. Judge absolutely carried this team when they started to backslide throughout the second half of the season.  

Toronto Blue Jays (+900): This young team always seemed to be a year away from competing in 2022 and they fell to an even younger Mariners squad in the Wild Card round. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and company will be back for a full season under a newly-extended manager John Schneider.

New York Mets (+1100): Buck Showalter took some heat for holding out Jacob deGrom in the Wild Card round when Max Scherzer failed to hold up his end of the bargain. If the front office retains deGrom,  the Mets will have a good shot to compete again next year.  

Philadelphia Phillies (+1300): They seemed to be destined for great things this postseason, but the Phillies ran out of gas against a dominant Astros team. With Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, J.T. Realmuto, and Nick Castellanos coming back, their offense should remain among the tops in the league, but Philly needs to shore up the bullpen and rotation. 

San Diego Padres (+1400): The Padres seem to be getting longer odds because of their poor record against the Dodgers in the division, but they just beat their proverbial big brothers in the NLDS and will get Fernando Tatis Jr. back after an entire year off. 

The Contenders 

Chicago White Sox (+1400): Easily one of the most disappointing teams in baseball last season, the White Sox parted ways with Tony La Russa and hired former Royals bench coach Pedro Grifol to take over as manager. 

St. Louis Cardinals (+1700): Adding Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado to a team that routinely leads the Majors in defensive metrics was a home run for the Cardinals. They might need to add a couple more arms to compete for a pennant. 

Seattle Mariners (+1900): The Mariners proved to be ahead of schedule with a Wild Card win over the Blue Jays, but they weren’t ready to compete with the Astros in the ALDS. Seattle has an elite bullpen and a great start to the rotation with Luis Castillo extended for five years. 

Milwaukee Brewers (+2000): This could be a busy offseason from the Brewers with 18 key players eligible for arbitration, while Trevor Rosenthal and Kolten Wong are among the key names they could re-sign. 

Tampa Bay Rays (+2200): Getting Tyler Glasnow back late in the season with Wander Franco never fully back to health seemed to cost the Rays a chance to survive the Wild Card round. This savvy franchise will remain a contender in the loaded A.L. East. 

Boston Red Sox (+2500): Boston remains an incredibly mercurial team with crazy lows to complement their unexpected runs in the postseason. The tenuous health of Chris Sale has a lot to do with that inconsistency. 

Los Angeles Angels (+3000): Led by the only true dual threat in the game, the Angels are loaded with talent, but Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout, and Anthony Rendon have yet to show that they can stay healthy for even close to a full season. 

San Francisco Giants (+3500): After winning a franchise record 106 games, only to get bounced by the Dodgers in the 2021 postseason, the Giants finished 81-81 and missed the playoffs. Gabe Kapler and his squad will try to rebound without the stabilizing force of Buster Posey behind the plate. 

Cleveland Guardians (+4000): The Guardians had the best bullpen in MLB after the break and Terry Francona managed his arms well through two playoff series, but he couldn’t find a way to create an offense in the ALDS against the Yankees.

Baltimore Orioles (+4000): Despite selling off closer Jorge Lopez at the deadline, the Orioles remained competitive down to the wire. They might have passed the Red Sox as the cellar dwellers in the A.L. East. 

Minnesota Twins (+4000): The Twins acquired Lopez in that deal with Baltimore and are building towards contending by adding arms to supplement their youth-laden roster. 

The Longshots 

Detroit Tigers (+5000): The Tigers finished dead last in runs per game and slugging percentage, with a pitching staff that posted the ninth-worst collective ERA last season. 

Texas Rangers (+5000): Texas had a horrible record in close games last season, which can partially be attributed to bad luck, but also indicates a poor bullpen and lack of situational hitting.

Miami Marlins (+5000): Reigning N.L. CY young winner Sandy Alcantara will lead a strong top of the rotation, but the Marlins couldn’t find any offense with a collective .618 OPS after the break. 

Chicago Cubs (+6000): Theo Epstein is sure to be busy this offseason with several veterans expected to leave in free agency, opening up cash for the Cubs to pursue any of the big-name arms.

Arizona Diamondbacks (+7000): The D’Backs were one of the most surprising teams last year after struggling mightily in the 2021 season. But they went 29-47 in the strong N.L. West. 

Colorado Rockies (+8000): The Rockies went 27-54 on the road last year with their offense disappearing away from the thin air at Coors Field. 

Cincinnati Reds (+9000): After sinking to the bottom and selling off key assets, the Reds will start to rebuild from the ground up. 

Washington Nationals (+10000): We’ll see what the Nationals got in the Juan Soto deal with SS C.J. Abrams and OF James Wood set to contribute during the second half next season, if not sooner. 

Pittsburgh Pirates (+10000): O’Neil Cruz and Ke’Bryan Hayes are the most exciting aspects of a rebuilding Pirates team that seems destined to finish towards the bottom of the N.L. Central yet again.

Oakland Athletics (+10000): This franchise should soon shift from the empty Oakland Coliseum to a new stadium, but if their struggles continue over the next couple years there could be a move to Las Vegas.

Basics of MLB Futures

Betting on the World Series is available all season long in the form of futures bets. It’s simple — find a team that you like and bet on them at their odds to win it all. For example, the Braves were +1000 to win the World Series before the start of the 2021 season. If you bet $100 on Atlanta to win it all before the season began, you would have won $1000 with a total payout of $1100. A $10 bet would have netted you $100.

Futures bets may also include the winner of the American League, National League, and each division. Some sportsbooks delve deeper with “prop bets” on individual achievements, such as who will lead the Majors in home runs, wins, strikeouts, etc.

Generally, books take bets on futures in between game action. When teams are competing on a full slate of night games, your sportsbook of choice might hold off on updating odds in the event there is a catastrophic injury or another event that might change the prospects of a contender.

Here is a quick summary of how the odds are displayed for MLB Futures bets:

  • Some sportsbooks will use a system that shows the odds as 5/1, while some display them as +500. This is just semantics, as both systems indicate that a winning $100 bet on the team would cash out at 5x that amount ($500).
  • Odds can also be split into fractions. A team may be listed as a 9/2 favorite on one book, which is the same as a +450 favorite, i.e. a winning ticket pays out 4.5x the amount of the bet.

History of MLB futures

Placing a long shot Futures bet on baseball is a very risky proposition. In NBA betting, for one, it’s almost akin to throwing away your money. The NFL is a bit more unpredictable with its single-elimination postseason, and the MLB is somewhere in between.

Rarely has a team come out of “nowhere” to win the World Series over the past several years, but plenty of fringe contenders have started the season with long odds before getting hot at the right time. According to archives compiled by William Hill Sportsbook, the Kansas City Royals were listed with +3300 odds to win it all during the first month of the 2015 season. Those odds dropped to +1400 in May, +1000 in June, and were down to +550 by the time the playoffs began.

In 2014, the San Francisco Giants opened the season with +2500 World Series odds and went on to win it all. The Boston Red Sox were getting +2800 odds prior to the 2013 season, and the St. Louis Cardinals were getting +2500 odds prior to the 2011 season.

Hence, there is value in placing a small bet on an underdog early in the season. There is a chance that an unexpected champion is crowned, but it is not guaranteed in today’s MLB due to the importance of pitching in the postseason.

Other ways to bet on the World Series

For those with wagering experience in other sports, much of the baseball terminology and concepts will be familiar. However, as with all sports, there are certain bet types and props that naturally are particular to the individual sport.

Here are the various ways to get a wager down on the World Series.

  • Moneyline: As with other sports, the moneyline represents the odds of a team winning a game. A “minus” sign indicates the favorite.  The number next to the minus sign represents the amount of money a bettor would need to wager to win a theoretical amount of $100. A “plus” sign indicates the underdog. The amount next to the plus sign represents the amount of money a bettor would win on a theoretical amount of $100.
  • Run line: Typically set at either -1.5 or +1.5, the run line functions much like the point spread in other sports. In a conventional run line scenario, the favored team must win by two or more runs or the underdog must lose by two runs or less in order for the run line to be covered. Odds are assigned next to the favorite (which is designated with a run line of -1.5) and underdog (which is designated with a run line of +1.5).
  • Total runs (over/under): The total combined number of runs projected to be scored in the game by both teams. As with other sports, bettors can place bets on the total either being exceeded or being greater than the amount of total runs scored.
  • Series line: With baseball usually being played in multi-game series between two teams — three- or four-game series being the most common — wagers are also available on which team will emerge as the winner in each matchup.
  • Player props: A variety of wagers based on individual players reaching certain benchmarks within a game or in a season.  Seasonal examples include over/under wagers on the number of hits, extra-base hits or home runs a player might hit in a season. In-game examples include over/under wagers on the number of hits, walks or home runs a player might hit in a game.
  • Team props: A variety of wagers based on teams reaching certain benchmarks within a game. Examples include over/under wagers on whether a team will score a team will score a certain amount of runs in a game. Or, how many runs a team will score by a certain inning within a game.
  • Parlays: Parlay wagering is defined as a series of bets that must all be correct in order for a bettor to be paid. Parlay bets feature more favorable odds and payouts due to the increased difficulty involved in predicting multiple outcomes correctly.
