Getting into the World Series Odds

The MLB World Series takes place in October. But you don’t have to wait that long to bet on it. You can bet on the World Series any time in the year. No, really. This takes place via what is called the “outrights” or “futures” bets, where you bet on a team to win the MLB World Series. 

When the World Series is happening, you can bet on the two teams’ run line, baseball’s point spread, moneyline, and the totals (over/under). Prop bets are also available so you will have an abundance of markets to cover.

How to read World Series Odds 

World Series odds are usually displayed with an “American” format: a plus (+) or minus (-) sign to indicate an underdog and a favorite, respectively. The plus number e.g. +125 indicates how much you win ($125) on a $100 wager while the minus number e.g. -160 shows how much you need to wager ($160) to win $100. 

Alternatively, you can use “decimal” odds or “fractional” odds. A +125 moneyline is 2.25 as a decimal. Multiply your wager by this number to get your total winnings: $325 ($100 + $225) and 5/4 as a fraction: $500 from a $400 wager or $125 from $100.

Teams History

With over a hundred-year history, there have been plenty of World Series through the MLB. Of course, not every franchise is equal. The New York Yankees have won the most World Series while some have yet to win one. As of 2022, six active MLB franchises have yet to win a World Series. Of these six, only the Seattle Mariners have not reached the World Series.

Some franchises reach the World Series more than others. Since 1903, the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers (formerly of Brooklyn) have had the most head-to-head World Series matchups. The Yankees and San Francisco Giants (formerly New York) is the second-most frequent. 

Betting example

To bet on the outrights, simply bet on the team you think will win the World Series. The prices/odds for the teams change as the season progresses, kind of like a stock in the stock market. Factors like winning or losing streaks, injuries, and their current standing all impact their betting odds. 

For example, the San Francisco Giants open as +1000 to win the World Series during the preseason. Then just before the season, they add a few star players and get better. Their line shortens to +800. During the season, they lose several key players to injuries and their odds lengthen to +1200. 

It is worth betting on more than one team to win the World Series in the outrights as you can only imagine how hard it is to correctly predict it!
