The MLB Trade Deadline is a week away on July 30, and contending teams will bolster their lineups and pitching staffs as they make a run at the playoffs. The World Series odds will continue to adjust, and FanDuel Sportsbook has you covered with all the updates and odds.
The Los Angeles Dodgers (+390) remain the favorites to repeat as world champions, but their odds have tightened from some leading contenders including the Houston Astros (+450) and Chicago White Sox (+650). The Astros surpassed the White Sox as the American League favorite in early July, and Houston, Chicago and the Boston Red Sox all lead their American League divisions with 58+ wins.
The New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers lead National League divisions, but the strongest division in baseball continues to be the NL West. The San Francisco Giants started the season with MLB futures odds greater than 100/1. The Giants lead the majors with 61 wins, and the Dodgers (59) and Padres (57) are close behind and playing better than .575 baseball. Those two are still better than six games clear of the closest National League team in the Wild Card chase.
The AL preseason favorite New York Yankees trail the Oakland Athletics by 4.5 games for the second wild card spot in the American League. Tampa Bay holds the top wild card spot with the Rays just 1-game behind the Red Sox for the lead in the AL East.
Here's a look at how the odds stack for the contenders and the teams falling out of the playoff chase.
