2023 MLB Betting Odds

BookMaker Baseball MLB Betting

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves are the top two teams in MLB futures to win the 2023 World Series. The Dodgers have been steadily moving up in the rankings this season, while the Braves have been in the top spot for much of the season. The Tampa Bay Rays still have the best record in the league and look like a serious World Series contender and they are third in MLB futures. Tampa has just a four-game lead over Baltimore in the AL East, but the Orioles are not getting much respect from the oddsmakers, as they are not among the 2023 World Series favorites. Last year’s defending World Series champions, the Houston Astros, have been near the top of the World Series odds board all season and they currently sit in the fourth spot. Rounding out the top six are the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Are you enjoying watching MLB games this season? The new rules have made a major impact. The pitch clock has shortened games by almost 30 minutes per game, while the ban on defensive shifts, limiting pick-off attempts and enlarging the base sizes have increased scoring.

What has not changed, however, is the lack of competitive balance. We have a number of teams that are at the top of the standings and a number of teams at the bottom. Last season, gamblers saw the highest prices on betting favorites in history and the big prices are a regular occurrence this season. It is pretty much a given to see at least one favorite of -200 or more each day and there are days where a -300 or more favorite is almost routine.

Atlanta Braves +520

The Braves continue to fall in terms of MLB futures, but they are still getting enough respect to be right with the Dodgers as the favorites. What we have said for weeks is now coming to pass, as Atlanta’s pitching staff is a concern. Their pitching staff is not what it was at the beginning of the season and Atlanta looks like they could have some real problems. The Braves badly need their two injured starters, Max Fried and Kyle Wright to return, but that is not happening anytime soon. The Atlanta lineup is really good, so the Braves will still win their share of games, but they are no longer a powerhouse.

Los Angeles Dodgers +575

The Dodgers are battling the Braves and Diamondbacks for the best record in the National League. Los Angeles was supposed to get a test this season from San Diego, but right now it is Arizona who is a threat to the Dodgers in the NL West. The Dodgers haven’t been that great of late, splitting their last 10 games, but they look like a real threat to make the World Series yet again. They have made the playoffs every season since 2013 and they have won the National League West every year but one in that span. But for all that success, the Dodgers have only one World Series championship during that time period.

Tampa Bay Rays +655

The Rays continue to prove that their hot start was no fluke, as they have the best record in the league. As well as the Rays have played, they are just four games in front of the Orioles, who get no respect and the surging Yankees are only six back. Tampa has a very good pitching staff that keeps them in almost every game and their lineup has been solid. The AL East is the toughest division in the league where no games are easy, but the Rays continue to win.

Houston Astros +715

The Astros have the look of a team that is a real threat to win the World Series once again. They have Jose Altuve back from injury and they look like one of the top teams in the league. Since 2015, Houston has missed the postseason just once. The Astros have two World Series championships in that span, with two more appearances in the Fall Classic. The Astros still don’t have Lance McCullers Jr., Luis Garcia and Jose Urquidy who are on the injured list but Houston still has a very good rotation and a powerful lineup. The Astros are right behind Texas for first place in the AL West.

New York Yankees +1050

The Yankees have surged into contention thanks to Aaron Judge. Ever since he returned from injury the Yankees look like a different team. New York still has some major issues in their starting rotation and now they are getting healthy as both Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson have returned from injury. New York now looks like a serious threat to the Rays in the AL East. It could be a good week coming up for the Yankees as the host the White Sox and Red Sox.

Toronto Blue Jays +1950

I have no clue as to why the Toronto Blue Jays are getting respect in MLB odds. This team has been a disappointment almost from day one. They are completely overrated. They have played better of late, but they are just barely in front of Boston for last place in the AL East. They can definitely hit, but their pitching staff has not been that good this season. We should get a good idea if the Blue Jays are any kind of threat in MLB futures, as they host the Astros and Twins this week.
