MLB World Series and League Championship Futures Odds

Major League Baseball players are reporting to their respective training camps in Florida (Grapefruit League) and Arizona (Cactus League) as the Boys of Summer begin preparing for the 2014 MLB season. That’s always good news for those of living on or around the 49th parallel as another winter is grinding to a close. Today we look at the futures odds to win the American and National League pennants and MLB World Series Championship.

Boston and Detroit: Top chalk to win the American League

Sitting with +500 preseason odds at the sportsbook, the defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox are tied with the Detroit Tigers as the top favorites to capture the 2014 MLB American League pennant. The New York Yankees, who are perennial AL favorites are next on the list with a +600 line while the Texas Rangers (+700) and Los Angeles Angels (+800) round out the top five contenders from the Junior Circuit.

LA Dodgers: National League and overall MLB Championship favorites

With a meager +300 money line to win the National League pennant, the Los Angeles Dodgers are posted as the team to beat in the National League. After a disappointing 2013 MLB season, the Washington Nationals open the year as second NL favorites with a +350 price. Defending NL Champs, the St. Louis Cardinals (+450) are a close third while the Cincinnati Reds (+750) and Atlanta Braves (+800) are the best of the rest on the Senior Circuit.
