Colorado Rockies Odds to Win the World Series

As sad as it is to say, Colorado Rockies fans got the season they were waiting for in 2023.

With just one winning season since the end of 2010, Colorado's ownership has used injuries as an excuse as to why the team fell out of contention. For the first time in franchise history, they lost over 100 games last season, tallying 103 defeats total. There are no excuses to make there. With such a poor effort last year, it's no surprise to see the Rockies at the bottom of the board to win it all.

Per the World Series odds at FanDuel Sportsbook, what are the Colorado Rockies' odds to win the World Series this season?

The Colorado Rockies are listed at +50000 to win the World Series, which rank as the worst odds in MLB.

Let's take a look at what we can expect from the Rockies in 2024.

Rockies Analysis

Even a surprise beyond all wildest expectations likely leaves the Rockies behind in the World Series conversation, but they nearly pulled off the greatest season-long upset in MLB history in 2007, and baseball's funhouse can lead to some wonky results.

The 2003 Florida Marlins has the longest preseason odds of any team to ever win the World Series (+7500), but Colorado had +9000 odds in 2007 as they won the National League amidst an improbable run. Coors Field, notorious for elevated run production and wild comebacks, is the exact type of variance that can prop up a team to significant overperform (or underperform) expectations.

The problem is that expectations are so drastically low in 2024. From a team that won just 59 games, Colorado kept to its usual inactivity in free agency and trade markets with this year's "big splash" coming in the form of right-hander Dakota Hudson. They're a budget organization that never works to dramatically improve.

Of course, getting Kris Bryant -- the team's last stunning acquisition in free agency -- back fully healthy from just 80 games played a year ago would be helpful to their cause, and the sticks do provide upside for the team. Top prospects Ezequiel Tovar and Nolan Jones joining reliable veterans like Bryant, Charlie Blackmon, Ryan McMahon, and Elias Diaz give the Rockies a prayer to outscore the visiting team at Coors, but this is also a team that's OPS dropped from .778 at home to .650 on the road -- where 81 of their games will take place.

Their pitching is where things get pretty unsightly. Kyle Freeland, owner of a 5.24 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) last year, heads up a rotation that features no arm that posted a SIERA below 5.00 a year ago. That's five outright poor starters, so even if ambitiously projecting two make a leap, there are three questions remaining with FanGraphs' 29th-ranked bullpen.

Similar to Moneyball, they'll make a movie about the 2024 Rockies if they simply end up making the playoffs (+5500). There's an argument to be had around a win total as low as 59.5 with their lineup, but this particular conversation doesn't progress very far.
