The Los Angeles Dodgers, with +270 odds, are still favorites to win the 2019 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, there's been a bit of movement below L.A. over the last 24 hours.

Previously tied with the Houston Astros, the New York Yankees (+400) now stand alone with the second-best odds to win the World Series. Houston slipped into a not-so-distance third, now sitting with +420 odds to take home the Commissioner's Trophy.

The AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins and NL East-leading Atlanta Braves both saw improvements in their odds, now sitting at +650, +950, respectively. The Tampa Bay Rays took a step back going from +2000 odds to now +2400 to win it all in 2019.

Two ball clubs with bullpen woes in the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox, are trending in opposite directions with their latest World Series odds update. The defending World Series champions have actually seen their odds slip to +3000 in the last two days.

The Cubs, on the other hand, now sit at +2200, the sixth-best odds, despite their bullpen blowing a whopping 18 saves of their own this year.

With a little over half of the season left to play for most teams, there's bound to be more movement going forward. Especially once deals at the trade deadline inevitably shakes up the MLB landscape.
