Opening Odds to Win 2024 World Series: Braves, Dodgers, and Rangers Among Favorites

The Texas Rangers won their first World Series on Wednesday night. Opening odds set by Caesars include the Atlanta Braves at +700, the Texas Rangers to repeat at +800, and the Los Angeles Dodgers at +900. No team has repeated as world champion since the Yankees in 2000.

Two National League teams have the shortest World Series odds. The Braves won 104 games this past season, the most in baseball, and the Dodgers won their 10th division title in the last 11 years.

What Can Impact World Series Futures?

Much can shift the odds in the three months between now and when spring training opens next February. Free agency will be open for business, with stars Shohei Ohtani, Blake Snell, and Cody Bellinger among the players who will hit the open MLB market. Others, like Juan Soto, may change teams in the “hot stove league” at the winter meetings next month. Young players can emerge as well.

MLB futures odds can be interesting. Last winter, following the Astros championship, Houston was the odds favorite, and just before opening day last spring, the Arizona Diamondbacks were +12500 to win. Still, that gutsy team managed to get within three wins of claiming the title this fall.

Where Ohtani lands as a free agent signee will shake up any World Series hopes for 2024. The two-way Japanese star will only hit next season, as surgery on his shoulder will keep him from pitching. But the likely 2023 AL Most Valuable Player will certainly make his new team much better. He’s been rumored to be coveted by the Dodgers, Giants, and Mets.

Rumors are swirling that Soto, a star outfielder for the Padres, will be traded to the Yankees or possibly the Red Sox. His uniform change will improve that team’s chances to win the next Fall Classic.

Longshot Bets for 2024 World Series

If there’s a team near the bottom of the odds board who could get to the World Series in an unlikely fashion as the D’backs did, it may be the Miami Marlins at +6000. The Marlins made the playoffs this season and have a young core of players with talent, especially on the pitching staff.

No matter what the futures odds for the next World Series, it could be a tough wager to win or one that would pay off big. Baseball has been among the most challenging sports to see dynasties emerge as champions. In the last 20 seasons, 13 franchises have won the World Series. By comparison, the NBA has seen only 11 in the previous 20 seasons, the NFL has had 13, and the NHL has had 12.
