The Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox remain on top of the World Series odds board at FanDuel Sportsbook as the baseball season continues into late August. The Dodgers have the second-most wins in baseball with 76 and have made up more ground in the NL West on the San Francisco Giants, who have 78 wins and continue to rise up the odds board.
But there has been some major movement and adjustment in odds the past two weeks. The New York Yankees odds have been cut in half thanks to a nine-game winning streak since the Field of Dreams Game. The Bronx Bombers now hold the top wildcard position in the American League and trail AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays by 4.0 games.
The Atlanta Braves have won seven straight games and have taken over the NL East lead. The Braves' odds have been cut in half the past two weeks along with the Cincinnati Reds, who are now neck-and-neck with the faltering San Diego Padres for the second wild card in the National League.
On the other end, some teams are falling back, joining the tumbling Padres are the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays, whose odds have dropped sharply in two weeks. But none as much as the New York Mets, who had already fallen to +1600 two weeks ago and are now +6500 to win the World Series.
The Milwaukee Brewers had a recent 8-1 stretch and are dominating the NL Central, and their World Series odds are now single digits. The Tampa Bay Rays are on a 5-1 run and have the most wins in the American League with 75. Yet their odds to win the World Series remain longer than the Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox, who both have 72 wins.
Here's a look at how the odds to win the World Series stack up as the playoff chase continues in August.
