Welcome to BetSided's MLB Power Rankings, where we not only rank the best teams in baseball, but we relate it to their World Series odds at WynnBET Sportsbook throughout the season.

With the MLB season a few weeks in, let's take a look at where everyone stands as the first month of the season draws to a close.

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (+500)

The Dodgers are simply unfair. They are the best team in baseball on the run line so far this season, and they are first in team ERA, first in runs per game and sixth in OPS. They are the clear favorite in my eyes to start the season.

2. New York Mets (+1000)

The Mets have been dominant, going 12-5 through their first 17 games, and Jacob deGrom hasn't even pitched yet! New York's offense has been humming, a welcome sight, helping the team post a plus-32 run differential.

3. Toronto Blue Jays (+700)

The Blue Jays have not got what they hoped for from some of their pitching, especially Jose Berrios, but they are atop the AL East behind their strong offense.

4. San Francisco Giants (+2000)

The Giants are trying to prove that last year wasn't a fluke, and an 11-5 start with a plus-37 run differential is a good way to do it. San Francisco is No. 2 in league in team ERA at 2.51.

5. New York Yankees (+1200)

The Yankees haven't hit well, ranking 19th in runs scored and 14th in OPS, but they have the third best ERA in baseball despite Gerrit Cole struggling to start the year. Luis Severino and Nestor Cortes have looked great to start the season, and Michael King has adjust well to a bullpen role. If the bats get going, New York could win the AL East.

6. Milwaukee Brewers (+1500)

The Brewers stumbled out of the gate, but they've won seven of their last 10 to pull into a tie for first in the NL Central. Their pitching staff is going to be one of the best in the league again in 2022.

7. St. Louis Cardinals (+3000)

The Cardinals have allowed the fewest runs in baseball (41) at this point in the season, and they've gotten a strong start from Nolan Arenado. Don't sleep on them in the NL Central race.

8. Seattle Mariners (+3000)

Are the young, fun Mariners here to stay? Seattle has won three straight and eight of its last 10 to take the top spot in the AL West. Between Logan Gilbert, Julio Rodriguez and Jarred Kelenic, this is one of the most intriguing young squads in baseball.

9. San Diego Padres (+1500)

No Fernando Tatis Jr.? No problem. The Padres are 10-7 so far this season and should be able to compete in what will once again be a crowded NL West.

10. Tampa Bay Rays (+2000)

The Rays haven't gotten off to the hottest start, but the team is still 11th in OPS and 14th in ERA. The Rays should compete for the AL East crown in 2022.

11. Los Angeles Angels (+2500)

Can we get Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani in the playoffs? The Angels are trying their best to start the season, but they're 22nd in team ERA, which could be their downfall in 2022.

12. Colorado Rockies (+10000)

Colorado is almost certainly going to fall on this list, but the Rockies have hit the cover off the ball to start the season, ranking No. 2 in the league in OPS and batting average while scoring the eighth most runs.

13. Houston Astros (+1200)

The Astros' offense has been stuck in mud to start this season, ranking 19th in OPS and 23rd in runs scored, but bettors shouldn't give up on them this early after all the success they've had in recent years.

14. Minnesota Twins (+5000)

The Twins made some big splashes this past offseason, and they've gotten out to an 8-8 start, but come into these rankings on a four-game winning streak to put them atop the AL Central.

15. Boston Red Sox (+2500)

Boston's bullpen has let it down at times this season, but the Sox also haven't hit their offensive groove just yet, ranking 22nd in OPS and 19th in runs scored.

16. Atlanta Braves (+1200)

The defending champs simply need to pitch better, as they've allowed 82 runs in their first 17 games. It's going to be hard to win a World Series if they rank in the bottom six in ERA for much longer than the first month or so of the season.

17. Chicago White Sox (+1000)

The White Sox are off to a slow start, and they've lost seven straight games heading into Monday's action. The White Sox have also scored just 50 runs so far this year, good for 26th in baseball.

18. Cleveland Guardians (+10000)

I didn't expect the Guardians to compete this season, but they are hovering around .500 with a plus-13 run differential so far this season. The offense has been a pleasant surprise to this point, ranking fourth in the majors in OPS.

19. Detroit Tigers (+7500)

The Tigers are just 6-9 to start the season, but Miguel Cabrera picked up his 3000th hit over the weekend.

20. Oakland Athletics (+20000)

The A's are 9-8 behind a strong offensive attack, but it's hard to see this team holding up after it traded away so many key players in the offseason.

21. Miami Marlins (+7500)

The Marlins are currently in second place in the NL East, and they are 12th in baseball in OPS and 13th in ERA. They may be a middling team this year, but Jazz Chisholm is one of the most-electric players in the game.

22. Philadelphia Phillies (+2500)

The Phillies are 26th in baseball in ERA and are just 6-10 to start this season. They still have plenty of time to turn things around, but the Mets and Braves won't be easy to overtake.

23. Pittsburgh Pirates (+50000)

The Pirates are actually .500 through their first 16 games, but it's hard to see that lasting for long. The team allowed 21 runs to the Chicago Cubs in a game this past weekend, and there is still a significant need for pitching, as they've allowed 85 runs and have a minus-28 run differntial.

24. Chicago Cubs (+12500)

The Cubs have the No. 1 offense in MLB, but they are just 7-9 and have lost seven of their last 10 games. The jury is still out on if this team can contend this season.

25. Kansas City Royals (+10000)

The Royals are struggling to score, posting just 43 runs so far this season and ranking 28th in OPS. The AL Central is wide open, but I'm not sure Kansas City will be in the running for the division crown.

26. Texas Rangers (+10000)

Despite making some big offseason moves, the Rangers are just 5-10 out of the gates and rank 28th in team ERA. Unless the pitching steps up, there's only so much Corey Seager and Marcus Semien can do.

27. Washington Nationals (+20000)

The Nationals have allowed 100 runs this season and have a minus-38 run differential. Not even Juan Soto can save this season.

28. Arizona Diamondbacks (+20000)

The Diamondbacks can't score this season, ranking 27th in runs scored and they are in last in the NL West. I can't see this team breaking into the top three in the division anytime soon.

29. Baltimore Orioles (+50000)

The Orioles are seventh in the league in ERA, but they've scored the third fewest runs in baseball to start this season. Unless the bats come around, it's hard to see this pitching staff holding up, especially with ace John Means (Tommy John surgery) done for the year.

30. Cincinnati Reds (+20000)

The Reds have just three wins this season, and they traded away half of their core during the offseason. This team is bound for the basement of the NL Central.
