The race to the top of the MLB futures odds board is among three teams and the Atlanta Braves aren’t one of them. One of the top two favorites when the season began a few months ago, the Braves have had to deal with injuries to key personnel losing staff ace Spencer Strider early in the campaign and watching 2023 MVP Ronald Acuna Jr. go down with a season-ending knee injury last month. The Braves endured a five-game losing streak last week and trail the NL East leading Philadelphia Phillies by 8-games.

Boasting the best record in the NL and jostling with the New York Yankees for the best record overall, the Phils emerged as a major player in the futures market. They have cooled off following a scorching stretch where they won 29 of 35 games. They are just 7-6 since June 1 and have dropped consecutive series following Sunday’s setback to Baltimore. And speaking of the Orioles they continue to play at a high level despite losing Kyle Bradish to an elbow injury dealing the pitching staff another blow. Sunday’s win was Baltimore’s eighth in 10 games leaving them just a couple games behind the Yankees for the best record in the AL.

Injuries to the pitching staff and an inconsistent bottom of the lineup have kept the Dodgers from running away from everyone in the NL. Still, they have a sizeable lead in the NL West and getting to the postseason is the first step towards winning the World Series. Yoshinobu Yamamoto went on the IL last week after going 6-2 with a 2.92 ERA. They are not the World Series favorite, yet, but the Yankees are the best team in MLB right now with the lowest staff ERA and the second highest average runs scored.

Baltimore Orioles

World Series odds posted last week had four teams with shorter than 10/1 odds and a handful of squads in the next tier of favorites. Since we discussed the four favorites above we’ll take a look at the next five starting with the Orioles. Suffering through some lean years during their complete rebuild, the O’s have come out stronger and deeper. And they need that depth, especially among the pitching staff with Kyle Bradish joining fellow starters John Means and Dean Kremer on the IL. They’ve received major contributions from Cole Irvin and Grayson Rodriguez while former Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes sports a 7-2 record and 2.08 ERA in 14 starts.

Seattle Mariners

If the Mariners find some offense they’d be a serious contender with much shorter World Series odds. As it is they entered Sunday’s game ranked 28th in team batting and 24th in runs per game. Part of the problem is J.P. Crawford, who hit .266 with a .819 OPS last season. He’s hitting just .205 in 185 at-bats in 2024 with an OPS of .657. Pitching has allowed the M’s to climb double digit games over .500 and extend their lead over Texas in the AL West. They lead MLB in quality starts and WHIP while boasting a 3.47 ERA.

Cleveland Guardians

It’s hard for one player to single-handedly carry an offense, but Jose Ramirez is doing that. Ramirez leads the majors in RBIs and has been deadly with runners on base belting 16 of his 18 homers in such a scenario. The team formerly known as the Indians closed the week losing two games in a row and three of four overall, but maintains a bulge in the AL Central. They hope to get back on track this week against Seattle and Toronto at home where they are 21-8.

Houston Astros

Every time the Astros take one step forward that’s followed by two steps backwards. It’s getting late early with their inability to prevent runs and losing Cristian Javier and Jose Urquidy for the year doesn’t help. Justin Verlander is showing his age and the pitching staff ranks in the bottom third in ERA and WHIP. Still, for a team that’s seven games under .500 the Astros boast decent odds. The return of Kyle Tucker will help the offense and getting the sticks working together at the same time will take pressure off a beleaguered staff.

Texas Rangers

The Rangers have been treading water waiting for players to get off the IL. And it’s starting to happen with Corey Seager now back in the lineup. We said at the start of the season that Texas will most likely be a better team in the second half of the season when Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are expected back. They are still in line to return on schedule and the club could use all the help it can get with their deficit in the AL West increasing.
