The three biggest movers in MLB futures odds

Here are three MLB teams that have significantly improved their futures consistently throughout the season:

Boston Red Sox – Opened: 30/1, Now: 8/1

Oddsmakers weren’t expecting much from the Red Sox this season after they cleaned house in 2012, but their starting pitching has come around and they're getting surprise contributions from their young players. Jose Iglesias (batting .367) and Daniel Nava (52 RBIs) are stepping up to the plate and getting the job done in Beantown.

Oakland Athletics – Opened: 25/1, Now: 9/1


The A’s are proving that last year’s Cinderella run to the postseason was no fluke. Bartolo Colon (12 wins) continues to be a force at age 40 and Josh Donaldson (61 RBIs) has been a surprise contributor on offense.

Pittsburgh Pirates – Opened: 60/1, Now: 14/1


The Pirates have been the best bet in baseball to this point (+23.50 units). The Pittsburgh pitching staff boasts a league-best 3.08 team ERA, While Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen pace the offense.
