The Dodgers are the favorites, at 11-2 at Caesars Sportsbook, followed by the Houston Astros (7-1) and the Braves (9-1). The New York Yankees are 10-1, with the Chicago White Sox at 12-1 and the Tampa Bay Rays at 14-1.
The Braves finished off the Astros with a series-clinching win in Game 6 on Tuesday in Houston. Atlanta's title ends a streak of 16 consecutive postseason appearances without winning a World Series, the longest such drought in MLB history. The Braves had to overcome long odds late in the season to get it done.
In August, shortly after all-star Ronald Acuna Jr. went down with an ACL injury, Atlanta could be found as high as 60-1 to win the World Series at some sportsbooks. The Braves didn't climb above. 500 until Aug. 6, making them the first team ever to reach the World Series after not having a winning record until that late in the season, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
With a slew of big names hitting the free-agent market, the offseason could see some notable odds movement. Astros shortstop Carlos Correa, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager and Giants third baseman Kris Bryant are just a few of the stars who will be coveted this winter and could impact World Series odds depending where they land.
