Even the 108-win, World Series-champion Boston Red Sox of 2018 had a stretch where they lost six of eight. The MLB season is a roller coaster ride for even the best (and worst) teams.
The graphs below, which track the 2019 World Series odds for all 30 teams in the majors, are generated by averaging the odds from multiple sources. The graphs are updated regularly over the course of the season. You can view each team’s odds in isolation or alongside similar teams.

Odds for 2018 AL Playoff Teams
The Red Sox had a postseason for the ages, as they knocked off the 100-win Yankees, 103-win Astros, and 92-win Dodgers to claim their ninth World Series title in franchise history. Only time will tell if they can win back-to-back titles for the first time since 1916.
NL East World Series Odds
No team surprised bettors more in 2018 than the Braves, who won 90 games despite having one of the youngest and most inexperienced rosters in the league. Much of the credit goes to rookies Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr., who combined for 50 home runs and 136 RBIs in their first year in the Majors. Will they continue to fly high in 2019, or will a sophomore slump bring the Baby Braves back to earth?
|Team||NL East Titles||Last WS Championship||Last WS Appearance|
|New York Mets||6||1986||2015|
NL Central World Series Odds
Chicago’s opening odds of +1100 may not look especially impressive, but they could change in a hurry as Chicago is expected to be a big player in free agency this winter. The club is interested in signing six-time All-Star Bryce Harper, and could make a play for third baseman Manny Machado, who hit .297 with a career-high 37 home runs and 107 RBI in 2018.

|Team||NL West Titles Since 1994||Last WS Championship||Last WS Appearance|
|Los Angeles Dodgers||10||1988||2018|
|San Francisco Giants||5||2014||2014|
|San Diego Padres||4||N/A||1998|
Odds for 2018 NL Playoff Teams
Few teams have experienced a longer World Series drought than the Dodgers, who last won a title in 1988. It’s a curious predicament for a team that has dominated its division and been to the World Series in back-to-back years. Will 2019 be the year LA finally breaks through and finishes the season on a winning note?
