There was a lot of hype leading up to this year's MLB trade deadline and it's safe to say that it lived up to expectations. Teams were wheeling and dealing all day, making trades to either help themselves win now or down the line. One team that made its mark on the day was the Los Angeles Dodgers, who pulled off a massive blockbuster deal that saw them acquire RHP Max Scherzer and SS Trea Turner from the Washington Nationals.

To no one's surprise, acquiring Scherzer and Turner has improved Los Angeles' odds of winning its second of back-to-back championship this year. As it stands, the Dodgers have +300 odds to win the 2021 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. That's an increase from the +400 odds they were listed at just two weeks ago.

Before the trade deadline, the Dodgers were already one of the best team's in the MLB, proven by their 62-43 record. They're scoring an average of 5.13 runs per game (3rd) while recording a team ERA of 3.21 (1st). Needless to say, bringing in two perennial All-Stars will make the Dodgers more difficult to defeat than they already were.

The Houston Astros, who didn't make any blockbuster deadline moves, own the second-best odds at +480. Meanwhile, the Chicago White Sox brought in reliever Craig Kimbrel from the crosstown rival Cubs, which has helped move their odds to +550 (compared to +850 on July 14).

Here's how the rest of the 2021 World Series odds are shaping up.
