After a few weeks with the New York Yankees in the No. 1 spot in our MLB Power Rankings, the Los Angeles Dodgers have regained that position with a hot end to the month of May.

Every week at BetSided, yours truly shares the latest Power Rankings for MLB in relation to the odds to win the World Series at WynnBET Sportsbook. Let's see who the biggest movers were this week:

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (+475) Last Week: No. 2

The Dodgers have won four straight and eight of their last 10 games. They have the best run differential in the league at plus-119. The Yankees are second... at plus-71. That's an insane gap.

2. New York Yankees (+750) LW: No. 1

Speaking of the Yankees, New York is still the best team in the American League to this point, but injuries to Giancarlo Stanton, Chad Green, Aroldis Chapman and others have hurt New York as of late.

3. New York Mets (+800) LW: No. 4

Who needs Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom? The Mets have won seven of 10 games and have a 8.5-game lead in the NL East.

4. Houston Astros (+800) LW: No. 3

Houston has picked up some breathing room in the AL West with the Angels losing five straight last week.

5. San Diego Padres (+1500) LW: No. 5

The Padres are 30-17 on the season, and even though Baseball Reference's Pythagorean Wins metric projects them at just 27-20, they've done it without Fernando Tatis Jr. Rookie MacKenzie Gore also looks like a staple in the rotation for years to come.

6. Milwaukee Brewers (+1200) LW: No. 7

The Brewers' rotation took a bit of a hit by losing Freddy Peralta to a shoulder injury, but they rank fifth in ERA and eighth in OPS so far this season.

7. Minnesota Twins (+3000) LW: No. 8

The Twins are not a fluke. This team has won seven of 10 and may be the favorite to take the AL Central if the White Sox can't get healthy.

8. Tampa Bay Rays (+2000) LW: No. 9

The Rays are playing to a better record than they should, based on their Pythagorean Wins projection, but they also stole two games from the Yankees this past weekend. This team should be in the playoff mix.

9. Toronto Blue Jays (+900) LW: No. 12

The Jays are back! Toronto has won five straight to jump back into the top 10 in our rankings. Yes, the Jays have a negative run differential, but it's only a matter of time before this offense starts getting hot.

10. Los Angeles Angels (+1500) LW: No. 6

The Angels are falling after losing five straight, and now they head to the Bronx to face the first-place Yankees starting on Tuesday night.

11. St. Louis Cardinals (+3000) LW: No. 11

The Cardinals own the 11 spot just about every week. This week is no different.

12. San Francisco Giants (+2000) LW: No. 10

The Giants have lost seven of their last 10 games, and they seem to have come back to earth after a 107-win season in 2021.

13. Boston Red Sox (+6000) LW: No. 17

The Red Sox are one of the hottest teams in baseball this month, and they now have a plus-27 run differential. Baseball Reference's Pythagorean Wins has them four games better than their actual record at this point in the season.

14. Atlanta Braves (+1500) LW: No. 15

We're finally seeing some life out of the defending champs, who called up top prospect Michael Harris last week.

15. Chicago White Sox (+1500) LW: No. 13

The White Sox can't catch a break, as All-Star shortstop Tim Anderson is going to land on the IL with a groin injury.

16. Cleveland Guardians (+8000) LW: No. 16

The Guardians have lost seven of their last 10 games, and they are now in the middle of the pack in both ERA (14th) and OPS (17th).

17. Philadelphia Phillies (+2500) LW: No. 14

The Phillies are reeling, and manager Joe Girardi is already getting asked about job security. Not great for late May.

18. Texas Rangers (+30000) LW: No. 21

Baseball Refernce's Pythagorean Wins has the surging Rangers at 24-22, and they now have a positive run differential on the year.

19. Miami Marlins (+8000) LW: No. 18

The Marlins have a positive run differential, are eighth in team ERA and 12th in team OPS. Yet, they are 19-26. I don't know where I stand with this team right now, as they are projected to be five games better by Baseball Reference.

20. Arizona Diamondbacks (+40000) LW: No. 19

The D-Backs didn't do themselves any favors heading into this week's rankings, dropping four straight to fall back below .500.

21. Seattle Mariners (+5000) LW: No. 22

The Mariners just don't seem ready after nearly making the playoffs last season. This young team started hot, but is 9-22 over it's last 31 games.

22. Colorado Rockies (+15000) LW: No. 20

The Rockies let Trevor Story walk. For nothing. That is all.

23. Chicago Cubs (+15000) LW: No. 23

The Cubs are projected to be a little closer to .500 this season, but they are still eight games under .500 in a weak division.

24. Pittsburgh Pirates (+50000) LW: No. 24

The Pirates are 19-27. They are projected to be 14-32 based on Baseball Reference's Pythagorean Wins. I can't see this team finishing the year outside of the bottom 10 in the league.

25. Baltimore Orioles (+100000) LW: No. 25

The Adley Rutschman era has begun in Baltimore, and fans have to hope this is a sign of brighter days ahead.

26. Oakland Athletics (+50000) LW: No. 26

I think the most shocking part about the A's struggles is that they are 7-17 at home this season.

27. Detroit Tigers (+30000) LW: No. 27

The Tigers have scored a league-worst 125 runs so far this season and look like one of the worst teams in baseball with a minus-53 run differential.

28. Washington Nationals (+50000) LW: No. 29

The Nationals jumped up this week for playing .500 ball, but it's mainly cause this next team can't get out of its own way...

29. Kansas City Royals (+30000) LW: No. 28

The Royals, man, what can I say? This team is 2-8 in its last 10 games and now has a 4.99 team ERA, good for 28th in MLB.

30. Cincinnati Reds (+100000) LW: No. 30

This spot may just be reserved for the Reds for the entire 2022 season.
