    • July 19: The gap between the legitimate playoff contenders and the rest of the field has been set between Toronto (+1100 pennant odds) and Cleveland (+2500 pennant odds).
    • July 5: The Red Sox (+492) are finally getting the respect they deserve. They sit third behind the Astros (+245) and White Sox (+320).

    • May 25: The Red Sox (+867) have improved the most since Opening Day, while the Twins (+2267) have fallen the furthest.
    • Apr. 6:  A 5-0 start has the Astros back among the top-five favorites in the AL, improving from +1033 to +850 after just a week of action.

      Odds as of July 5, 2021. 

      • July 19: The five-team playoff field is coming into focus in the NL and the pennant odds reflect that: fifth-favorite Milwaukee is at +525 while sixth-favorite Atlanta is a distant +1867.
      • July 5: There is a steep drop after the top five (LAD +175; SD +342; NYM +450; MIL +517; SF +733). The rest of the NL is at least 5.5 games out of a playoff spot. Fifth-favorite ATL has long +1767 pennant odds.
      • June 27: The Brewers (+783) have improved the most recently, odds-wise, thanks to a surge that’s put them three games up on the rest of the NL Central.
      • June 21: The Giants are now the fourth-favorite, surpassing the Braves and Cardinals.
      • June 14: The Mets (+433) have solidified themselves as third-favorites, behind the Dodgers (+175) and Padres (+375), but well ahead of the Brewers (+833) and Braves (+1067).
      • May 25: The Brewers ( +1233) have improved steadily over the course of the season thanks to dominant starting pitching from Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, and Freddy Peralta, who are all sporting ERAs below 2.60.
      • Apr. 6: Early injuries, specifically to MVP contender Fernando Tatis Jr, have sent the Padres’ odds from +422 to +463.
      • Feb. 10: Acquiring Trevor Bauer has led to the Dodgers’ odds improving from +200 to +177, while division rival San Diego faded from +375 to +422.
      • Oct. 28, 2020: No surprise in the opening NL Pennant odds: the LA Dodgers are +200 favorites to win their second in a row and fourth in five years.
