The 2021 MLB season has been a story of disrespect for the San Francisco Giants. For nearly three months, San Francisco has been near the top of the standings and held the division lead in the NL West standings. That includes their current 2.5-game lead over the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers.

Despite the dominant 82-44 overall record, San Francisco continues to deal with disrespect in regards to their World Series contention. It's understandable considering this team is the surprise of the 2021 MLB season, but with just about one month of baseball left, it's time to take this team seriously.

The latest MLB World Series odds from FanDuel Sportsbook show Vegas finally offering some respect for the Giants' championship chances.

Giants World Series Odds

Just two weeks ago, the Giants remained with just the fourth-best odds to win the World Series (+1100). Now, after another thrilling win on Wednesday night, San Francisco finally sits in the top-three of World Series odds with their +750 mark.

Not only does San Francisco own the best record in baseball, this team is red-hot entering the final month of the season. The Giants are 17-5 in August and 32-15 since the start of July. Clearly, the franchise wants to capitalize on their ability to win a championship this season, so they added four-time All-Star and 2016 World Series winner Kris Bryant at the deadline.

This is a complete team, on both sides of the plate, as the Giants rank top-10 in offense by scoring 4.87 runs per game. The pitching staff is even better, ranking second in the entire league with a 3.25 ERA. Only the Los Angeles Dodgers, with favored +280 odds to win the World Series, rank higher in team ERA (3.03).

It's been a bit of a magical season in the Bay Area and the Giants will look to continue their hottest baseball down the stretch.
