1. Los Angeles Dodgers

World Series Odds: +260
Record: 79-41 SU and 59-61-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 1

The Dodgers are a great team to bet from here on out.  Just stay away from the RL.


2. New York Yankees

World Series Odds: +450
Record: 79-41 SU and 73-47-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 2

If the Ray’s would have had their act together early, the Yankees would be in trouble. Bet this team on the RL, it’s the best bet in baseball as when they win they tend to score a lot of runs.  The next man up is paying off in NY.


3. Houston Astros

World Series Odds: +175
Record: 77-41 SU and 62-56-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 3

The Astros have come a long way through a grind it out, the last couple of months. This team has heart and grit. Bet them.


4. Cleveland Indians

World Series Odds: +1800
Record: 71-47 SU and 63-55-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 5

The Indians are tied for first place in the AL Central. This team is tough-minded, and they play to win nightly.


5. Minnesota Twins

World Series Odds: +1600
Record: 71-47 SU and 61-57-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 4

The Twins are 5-5 the last ten games, the Indians are 8-2 and theirs your difference. This race heats up as the battle for the division becomes a war.


6. Atlanta Braves

World Series Odds: +900
Record: 70-50 SU and 57-63-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 6

The Braves are right where they need to be and maintain a 6.5 game lead over the Nationals. This is a good team, but not enough. Definitely bet the ML.


7. Tampa Bay Rays

World Series Odds: +2800
Record: 69-50 SU and 60-59-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 7

The Rays are a day late and a dollar short unless the Yankees collapse. They remain a solid bet at 69-50.


8. Oakland Athletics

World Series Odds: +4000
Record: 67-51 SU and 64-54-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 8

The A’s maintain but that’s just about it, they are in a dogfight for the WC, so take them seriously.


9. Chicago Cubs

World Series Odds: +1700
Record: 64-54 SU and 58-60-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 9

The Cubs are worth betting when you pick your spots and when they are at home, but, pick them carefully and stay away from the RL.


10. Washington Nationals

World Series Odds: +2500
Record: 62-55 SU and 63-54-0 Run Line
Previous Rank: 11

They had a great run before the All-Star break and lead the Wild Card by a game.  Look out for this team when Scherzer and Zimmerman come back.
