After six months of regular-season baseball and eight postseason victories each, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox will face off in the  2018 World Series.


Both teams have proven to be the best of their respective leagues and while it's sure to be a great series, no matter the outcome, oddsmakers are pitting Boston as the favorite to win it all. 


With the Fall Classic starting tonight, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a Series Correct Score World Series prop bet and the Red Sox are the slight favorites in every potential series-ending scenario.

With home-field advantage -- in Games 1 and 2, and 6 and 7, if necessary -- and coming off a 108-win regular season, it's easy to see why the Red Sox are favored, but no matter which outcome you choose, they all pay out big time.

One of the more interesting prop bet options here is Boston's +1000 line for a series sweep. Breaking out the brooms is no easy task, but putting money down on the Red Sox could make for a sneaky good bet. The Sox are an impressive 5-0 on the road this postseason and just might be able to pull off a series sweep as long as they hold serve in Games 1 and 2 at Fenway.

No matter which series result you choose to bet, they all pay more than three-to-one, making a potentially lucrative payout on the 2018 champs.
