    Odds Movement Timeline

    • July 19: Both AL favorites (the Astros and White Sox) improved to +583 as they have consolidated their leads atop their divisions.
    • July 5: The Astros (+633) have surpassed the White Sox (+775) as the top team in the AL.
    • June 27: If the season ended today, the Yankees would be 5.5 games out of the second AL Wild Card. Their odds (+1233) remain shorter than numerous teams they trail, including the Rays (+1267), Athletics (+1300), and Red Sox (+1800).
    • June 21: The Astros have passed the Yankees as second-favorites in the AL.
    • June 14: The White Sox have the best run differential in the Majors (+106) and are now the top team from the Junior Circuit in the World Series odds.
    • May 25: Oddsmakers aren’t buying the Giants (+3767), who sit at 28-19 on the year, in large part because they sit behind both the Dodgers and Padres in the NL West, which will make it difficult just to make the postseason.
    • April 19: The Yankees are mired in a 2-8 slump which has led to their odds fading from +581 to +625. But they remain nearly twice as short as the White Sox (+1150), the second-favorite from the AL.
    • April 12:  Sitting atop the AL East at 6-3, the Boston Red Sox have improved from +5250 to +4250 while division-mates NYY (+550 to +581), TB (+2500 to +2700), and BAL (+10500 to +11250) faded.
    • Apr. 7: The A’s are still winless (0-5) and have seen their odds fade from  +2350 circa Opening Day to +2650. The undefeated Astros have improved from +2100 to +1750.
    • Feb. 10: LAD has improved from an already-short +400 to +333 with the acquisition of Trevor Bauer. Division-rival San Diego faded from +617 to +783, in turn.
    • Jan. 29: The full impact of the Cardinals’ acquisition of Nolan Arenado remains to be seen. The Red Birds remain at +4000, but that is sure to change in the coming hours.
    • Jan. 22: The Blue Jays’ addition of George Springer only moved the needle slightly. Their odds improved from +2667 to +2467
    • Jan. 12: The White Sox (+1000) are now considered the second-biggest World Series threat in the AL after the Yankees, narrowly ahead of the Rays (+1355) and Twins (+1640).
    • Jan. 7: The Padres’ high-profile offseason transactions have finally led to a jump in the odds. The Friars are now the third-favorite at +567, narrowly behind NYY (+533) for second.
    • Dec. 28: The Padres have held steady at +1000 despite adding Blake Snell (and possibly Yu Darvish in the coming days) to a starting rotation that already features Dinelson Lamet, Mike Clevinger, and Chris Paddack.
    • Dec. 2: The free-agent market has been dead silent of late. There has been little change in the 2021 World Series odds as a result. The only notable movement saw Tampa Bay move back into the top four ahead of Atlanta
    • Nov. 25: Atlanta has been the biggest mover early in free agency, acquiring Charlie Morton and Drew Smyly while also retaining Josh Tomlin. Their odds are now in the top four (+1067).
    • Oct 28: The Los Angeles Dodgers (+500) have opened as favorites to win back-to-back World Series. No team has repeated since the 1999-2000 Yankees.
