World Series 2017: Odds for all 30 teams

What are the odds that your favorite MLB team wins the 2017 World Series?

The Chicago Cubs are the 2016 World Series champions. Even close to a month later, it still sounds a little strange to say, doesn’t it? And with the bulk of that team coming back, it’s certainly easy to think that they could repeat once the 2017 World Series rolls around. With reigning National League Most Valuable Player Kris Bryant leading a roster that includes 20-somethings Anthony Rizzo, Addison Russell, Kyle Schwarber, Javier Baez and Jason Heyward (and that doesn’t even include 35-year-old World Series MVP Ben Zobrist), along with a pitching staff that boasts 2015 National League Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta and two of the top three vote-getters in 2016 in Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks, it’s easy to see why the North Siders are already the favorites to win next year’s World Series.

Vegas Insider currently has the Cubs at 3-1 odds to repeat as champions. But how do the other 29 teams stack up? Here are the current odds for the 2017 World Series.

  • Chicago Cubs: 3-1
  • Los Angeles Dodgers: 10-1
  • Washington Nationals: 10-1
  • Boston Red Sox: 10-1
  • New York Mets: 12-1
  • Cleveland Indians: 12-1
  • Houston Astros: 12-1
  • Toronto Blue Jays: 14-1
  • San Francisco Giants: 16-1
  • Texas Rangers: 16-1
  • St. Louis Cardinals: 20-1
  • Baltimore Orioles: 20-1
  • Detroit Tigers: 20-1
  • New York Yankees: 25-1
  • Seattle Mariners: 25-1
  • Kansas City Royals: 30-1
  • Pittsburgh Pirates: 30-1
  • Miami Marlins: 40-1
  • Tampa Bay Rays: 60-1
  • Colorado Rockies: 60-1
  • Chicago White Sox: 60-1
  • Arizona Diamondbacks: 100-1
  • Philadelphia Phillies: 100-1
  • Milwaukee Brewers: 100-1
  • San Diego Padres: 100-1
  • Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim: 100-1
  • Oakland Athletics: 100-1
  • Atlanta Braves: 100-1
  • Cincinnati Reds: 100-1
  • Minnesota Twins: 100-1

The Cubs are obviously a good bet, as are the set of teams below them at 10-1. The Dodgers gave the Cubs all they could handle in the NLCS and the Washington Nationals are poised to have another solid season as well. Coming in as the early favorite to represent the American League in the 2017 World Series are the Boston Red Sox, who are also at 10-1, just slightly ahead of this year’s American League champion, the Cleveland Indians, who currently sit at 12-1 along with the New York Mets and the Houston Astros. The Toronto Blue Jays are at 14-1 but it will be interesting to see what happens with them in free agency as Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnación could both be gone. The same could be said for the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers, both of whom are at 16-1 and will certainly look to bolster their respective lineups at next week’s winter meetings.

Assuming things get worked out with the collective bargaining agreement, which expires next Thursday, teams are set to start the winter meetings on Monday in Washington, D.C. and that’s usually when the MLB offseason really starts to get exciting. As rosters change, it will be interesting to see how the 2017 World Series odds change as well.
