World Series Odds, Favorites, Contenders & Long Shots

By Posted on No tags 0

With a handful of MLB games per team as a sample size, it is time to take a closer look at the 2019 World Series odds, betting favorites, contenders, and long shots.

Early 2019 World Series Odds, Favorites, Contenders & Long Shots

The New York Yankees are the clear cut World Series betting favorites at +500. Coincidently their record after their record to date is also .500 after four games.

2019 World Series Favorites

  • New York Yankees +500
  • Boston Red Sox +600
  • Houston Astros +600
  • Los Angeles Dodgers +800

Next up are the defending World Series Champions at +600. Boston is coming off a great season. The only way 2019 can be better is by winning one more game than the Yankees and another World Series.

Also at +600 are the Houston Astros. This team is primed for a big year after winning 103 games last year and 102 in 2017. What is the loftier goal winning a World Series or 104 games this year? Only four teams have done the latter since the turn of this century. If they don’t hit 104 wins, nothing short of a World Series will be a disappointment.

Last year’s runner up, the Los Angeles Dodgers are a +800 futures bet to win the 2019 World Series. Last season the Dodgers lost the World Series in five games to the Red Sox.
