If you ever want to know how professional sporting events will turn out, a good place to look is the betting odds. Oddsmakers are experts in predicting the outcomes of sports, that’s why they’re paid to do what they do.

Well, if you think that the oddsmakers know what they’re talking about, then expect either the Los Angeles Dodgers or the San Francisco Giants to represent the National League in the upcoming World Series.

WynnBET has the Dodgers and Giants as the top two favorites to win the NL despite the two teams playing against each other in the NLDS. The Dodgers sit atop the odds list at +120 (bet $100 to profit $120) and the Giants are right behind them at +275 (bet $100 to profit $275).

The Atlanta Braves or Milwaukee Brewers will be competing in the NLCS, but the oddsmakers aren’t giving them much of a shot to win the pennant. WynnBET has the two teams set at +425 (bet $100 to profit $425) to win the National League pennant.

With both series tied at 1-1, it’s strange to see the two teams that are playing against each other with much shorter odds than the other two, considering only one of them will advance to the NLCS.

WynnBET also has series odds set. The Dodgers are -170 favorites over the Giants (+160) to advance to the next round. Meanwhile, the Braves and Brewers series is set as a pick’em with each team getting -105 odds.

Game 3 in each series is set to take place on Monday, Oct. 11. Opening pitch for the Brewers and Braves will take place at 1:07pm et, and the Giants and Dodgers will start their Game 3 at 9:37pm et.

Don't forget that it's football season!
