2024 World Series Odds: Yankees Stumbling Into All-Star Break

The Yankees haven't won back-to-back games in nearly a month and have relinquished the AL East lead to the Orioles. Still, they're the betting favorites in the American League.

All-Star rosters have been announced and we're one week out from the break. The hierarchy on the MLB odds board hasn't seen much overhaul, but there has been a significant development up at the top.

As the New York Yankees hit the skids, the Philadelphia Phillies have surged into second with the Los Angeles Dodgers maintaining a healthy lead as the overall favorite.

Let's take a look at the latest World Series odds as division and playoff races are about to come into focus.

Favorites to win 2024 World Series

Los Angeles Dodgers (+300 to +325)

The Los Angeles Dodgers have played uneven baseball of late. Yes, they just won a series against the Milwaukee Brewers but they lost two of three to the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants in the two sets before that.

Now, we get a true showdown as the Dodgers visit Citizens Bank Park for a three-game clash with the NL East-leading Phillies starting Tuesday. They'll finish the week with a series against the Detroit Tigers before returning to Los Angeles.

The All-Star break will come in handy, but there isn't much cause for alarm. The Dodgers own the National League's second-best record and run differential. They've done this despite being lambasted by injuries up and down the roster, particularly to the pitching staff. Mookie Betts remains sidelined and won't be back for a while. And yet, they've got a 7.5-game lead over the San Diego Padres.

Philadelphia Phillies (+475 to +600)

The Philadelphia Phillies would probably have a more definitive hold over the second spot on the odds board if Bryce Harper or Kyle Schwarber were healthy. They're not, and the Phillies have gone 5-5 over their last 10, maintaining an eight-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East.

That this team has held steady without those two stars — as well as catcher J.T. Realmuto — should strike fear into the hearts of opponents. The Phillies should get healthy soon, and if they make a couple of key trade deadline additions to bolster an already impressive core, look out.

After hosting the Dodgers in the series of the week, the Phils will get a bit of a breather when the Oakland A's come to town to wrap up the week.

New York Yankees (+400 to +600)

The New York Yankees technically have shorter odds than the Phillies at Caesars and DraftKings, but Philadelphia is either even with them or shorter everywhere else. This can be largely attributed to their recent stumble.

Despite beating the Boston Red Sox 14-4 on Saturday, the Yankees lost two of three against their rivals, which immediately followed a three-game sweep at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees haven't won back-to-back games since sweeping the Kanas City Royals from June 10-12, which also happens to be their last series victory.

This swoon has also allowed the Baltimore Orioles to capitalize by taking a three-game lead in the AL East. After losing five of six on this homestand, getting away from the Bronx might be just what the doctor ordered, but it won't be easy. They'll travel to St. Petersburg to face the Tampa Bay Rays before stocking up on crab cakes against the Orioles over the weekend at Camden Yards,

How to read MLB World Series futures odds

Sportsbooks will post World Series futures as soon as the previous season concludes, and some even sooner. These betting boards are constantly adjusted throughout the winter and ensuing season as players get hurt or are traded. Once the regular season begins, World Series odds will change daily as teams win and lose games, and as more players are injured or traded. Sportsbooks will also adjust the World Series odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.

World Series odds will usually look like this:

  • Los Angeles Dodgers +240

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $240 if the Dodgers win the World Series. If it's close to the end of the season or MLB has a very dominant team, you could see a minus sign (-) ahead of a team's odds. 

  • Atlanta Braves -150

This means that if you bet on the Atlanta Braves during the 2020 MLB season, you would have needed to bet $150 to profit $100 if the Braves won the championship.

Above we have posted the American odds for the World Series. However, these are easy to convert to decimal odds or fractional odds with our odds converter tool.
