Despite having the NL's best record at 72-33, the Los Angeles Dodgers are having a rough week.

Not only did the San Diego Padres transform their club by acquiring Juan Soto, Josh Bell, Brandon Drury, and Josh Hader, but Clayton Kershaw also suffered an apparent back injury against the Giants yesterday.

A combination of the injury the Padres' rise, and Houston's improvement now makes the Astros World Series favorites over at WynnBET Sportsbook for the first time all season.

World Series Odds

  • Houston Astros: +375
  • New York Yankees: +400
  • Los Angeles Dodgers: +425
  • New York Mets: +600
  • Atlanta Braves: +1000
  • San Diego Padres: +1200

Houston has perhaps MLB's best rotation, defense, and bullpen to go with an elite lineup. The National League has better top-tier teams, making the Dodgers' path to the World Series more difficult than their American League counterparts.

We'll keep you updated at BetSided with the latest on Kershaw's injury and any changes in the odds. But in the meantime, Los Angeles finds itself in an unfamiliar position: looking up on the leaderboard for the first time in 2022.
