We are a couple of months into the season so it is a good time to take another look at futures odds for the 2019 World Series. It should be no surprise that the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers are both favored to win it all at +400 on a futures bet. If you want to take a real gamble then the Kansas City Royals, Baltimore Orioles, Miami Marlins and, Toronto Blue Jays are all listed at +100000.
Odds on which team will win the World Series from BetOnline.ag
If you are going to make a futures bet then you always should shop around for the best odds. Futures odds at this point in the season are not only based on how likely a sportsbook thinks a team is to win it all but also on the sportsbooks liability from previous bets. A sportsbook manager may really not like the Yankees to win it all but he still needs to post lower odds because of all of the Yankee money he took in before the season began.

Two teams I like to Win the World Series
Enough games have been played to make a judgement on how good a team is and how likely they are to make the playoffs. The two teams I like now and have liked since April are the Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves. The Twins are further along in their development and the win total proves it. They are also +650 to win it all. With a excellent shot at winning the division and avoiding the one game Wild Card the Twins have an advantage over the Yankees, Red Sox and, Rays. All three are good teams but only one can win the division with the other teams relegated to a one game playoff that sucks up the best starting pitcher on the team.
The Atlanta Braves are now +2200 to win it all after signing Dallas Keuchel. They were winning games without but they still lacked a big time starting pitcher with his type of experience. It will take him a month or two to get in top form but he should be ready for the playoffs.
