Atlanta Braves Odds to Win the World Series

The Atlanta Braves looked like the best team in baseball last season before getting bounced early in the playoffs by the Philadelphia Phillies.

In 2024, the Braves will likely be one of the elites once again and should be in the mix for a title. The betting odds reflect that.

Per the World Series odds at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Atlanta Braves are listed at +450 odds to win the World Series in 2024. Those are the second-best odds in baseball, trailing only the Los Angeles Dodgers (+320).

Let's take a look at what we can expect from the Braves this coming campaign.

Braves Analysis

The Braves featured a record-setting lineup headlined by the reigning NL MVP Ronald Acuna Jr. last year. For Atlanta, the good news is that they're bringing back the majority of their roster -- plus additions.

Along with Acuna, who is the NL MVP odds favorite, the Braves offense still includes two players in the top 10 of the NL MVP odds in Matt Olson and Austin Riley. Their lineup also added an interesting name, Jarred Kelenic. Kelenic has shown flashes in previous seasons, and at just 24 years old, he could finally reach his full potential in a stacked lineup.

Seeing what the Braves did last year, they should be at the top of the majors alongside the heavily favorited Los Angeles Dodgers from their lineup alone. Atlanta's 125 wRC+ at the dish was best in the majors by a mile.

They've also looked to significantly improve their already-solid pitching staff. While they have two NL Cy Young favorites in Spencer Strider and Max Fried (both in the top five), they also went out and traded for Chris Sale. Sale isn't the same pitcher he was back in 2018 by any means, but as a third starter in a rotation where it's not all on him? He can be a great piece of the puzzle (and should be) as long as he's healthy.

In many ways, the Braves are the only team talent-wise in the league that can match the Dodgers, and it shows in their projections. FanGraphs still has them ahead of the Dodgers in projected wins, runs per game, runs allowed, and differential.

Atlanta is out for revenge after another NLDS elimination. Much like L.A., it feels like a World-Series-or-bust mindset for such a talented club this season.
