AL Pennant Odds for AL East Teams
The Red Sox opened with the second shortest odds among all AL East teams. Apparently it takes more than 108 regular season wins and a World Series championship to impress oddsmakers.
AL Pennant Odds for AL Central Teams
The Indians opened with the best pennant odds among all AL Central teams yet again, but getting back to the top won’t be easy after management unloaded Yan Gomes and Edwin Encarnacion in the offseason in an attempt to trim payroll.
AL Pennant Odds for AL West Teams
The Seattle Mariners are the only American League team to never win the pennant. Don’t hold your breath on it happening in 2019, as the club is in Year 1 of what promises to be a slow and painful rebuild.

July 4: The NL is shaping up as Dodgers vs the Field. LA is almost even money (+110). The Field is about 11 teams deep. Only the Mets, Giants, and Marlins truly look out of it.

May 22: The St. Louis Cardinals have dropped out of the top five after losing seven of their last 10.
May 6: The Cubs have seen their odds improve significantly thanks to a stellar seven-game winning streak.
March 12: The Dodgers opened with the shortest odds to win the NL pennant for a third straight year, but the Phillies aren’t far behind after signing Bryce Harper to a gargantuan 13-year, $330 million contract in late February.

NL Pennant Odds for NL East Teams
The Washington Nationals have yet to win a National League pennant despite capturing four AL East titles since 2012. Their quest won’t get any easier this year after former former NL MVP Bryce Harper bolted DC to join the rival Phillies.
NL Pennant Odds for NL Central Teams
The Cubbies are often ridiculed for their postseason futility, but Chicago has actually won 17 NL pennants over the years. Their most recent pennant came in 2016 after they downed the Dodgers in six games in the NLCS.
NL Pennant Odds for NL West Teams
It should come as little surprise that the Dodgers opened with the shortest pennant odds among all AL West teams. Los Angeles has won six straight NL West crowns and has averaged 94 regular season wins since 2013.
