MLB World Series Odds & Lines


The Major League Baseball regular season is composed of 162 games played during the year against the 30 teams in the league. Since 1903, MLB has been divided into two leagues, the American League (AL) and the National League (NL).

Both leagues signed a national agreement in 1903  to be combined under the MLB banner and start a championship title game known as the World Series, which has the best team of the AL face the best team from the NL.

While MLB has changed a lot over the years, with more teams and games being played now than back in 1903, it has still been a pastime sport that all Americans love and enjoy to this day. 

Road to the World Series: MLB Playoffs

The goal of MLB teams is to make it to the MLB playoffs and then ultimately the World Series. Teams with the best record in each of the six divisions between the AL and NL will make it to the MLB playoffs, while two wild card teams from the AL and two wild card teams from the NL will be selected from the remaining teams in each league with the best record that didn’t win their division.

The current format is much different from MLB’s format in the past.

Back in 1903, there were no playoff games, as only the team with the best record in both the AL and NL would face each other in the World Series.

But when 1969 came around, MLB added a two-team playoff and split teams into two separate conferences within the AL and NL.

Both leagues got an Eastern Division and Western Division, with the team with the best record in each division facing each other in a best of five playoff game, with the winner advancing to the World Series.

The two-team playoff would last until 1994 when MLB changed the number of divisions in each league from two to three.

The change allowed the top team in each division to go to the MLB playoffs and added one extra team that had the best record in the league but didn’t win their division.

The format would remain in play until a new agreement changed the playoff format again for MLB.

In 2012, MLB added a one-game playoff between the two teams with the best record that didn’t win their division.

The winner of the one-game playoff would then face the highest-seeded division team in a best two out of three, while the other two divisional winners faced each other in the same format. For 2022, there have been talks about altering the playoff format yet again.

MLB World Series: Baseball’s Championship Game

Baseball’s championship game, the World Series, puts the best of the AL against the best of the NL in a best out of seven series. When the World Series first began in 1903, the World Series was the best out of nine series between the best AL and NL teams.

The format would go to seven in 1905; the two teams set to play the 1904 World Series never played due to the NL champion New York Giants’ refusal to play the game.

The World Series would go back to a best of nine format for three years from 1919 to 1921 before going back to the best of seven format in 1922.

In the history of the World Series, no team has more World Series appearances or wins than the New York Yankees. The Yankees have won the World Series 27 times while appearing in baseball’s championship game 40 times over the years.

The Yankees have proven in the past that they are one of the most dangerous teams in MLB history, which has helped them get the nickname of “The Evil Empire” from other teams that dislike them and their winning ways.

Betting on MLB futures odds on the World Series will require the gambler to carefully examine all the MLB teams and the players and coaches on the team. While the previous year’s World Series winner usually gets the favorite nod, it can be challenging for a team to win back-to-back World Series in the current era of MLB.

While this can happen, it usually doesn’t unless a very dominant team is around.

The MLB lines might show gamblers that a previous year’s winner is a favorite, but as we know, the previous winner doesn’t usually win the World Series the following year.

So gamblers will need to look closer at the teams in the league to see who their MLB bet should be on when it comes to MLB futures odds on the MLB World Series odds. 

Some gamblers might wish to hedge their bets before the MLB season starts due to MLB futures odds that are favorable for gamblers.

Gamblers that do bet-hedging will pick two or more teams to bet on, with the largest wager going on the team with the least favorable odds and smaller wagers on the other team or teams, so that the wagers will cover any losing bets, hence the term hedging.

Doing this is very risky but can pay off if one of the wagers is hit.

Here are some other tips to look at with MLB odds on teams to win the World Series before the season starts:

  • Is there a team with players who have made improvements to make a run for the World Series?
  • Is there a team that had a chance to win last year’s World Series, only to come up short?
  • Did the winner from last year keep all the same players and coaches to help their chances of repeating a World Series run?
  • Did teams in the MLB improve their rosters in an attempt to stop last year’s World Series winner from winning it again?
  • Are there any standout players called up or signed by a team to help them win the World Series?
  • Have any pre-season trades been made that could affect a team’s chances of winning the World Series?

For gamblers who wish to wait before betting on MLB futures odds, there can be different things to look at depending on how long one has waited before getting into an MLB bet on the World Series winner.

While the team with the most wins will be the favorite as the season progresses, the MLB futures odds will also eliminate any team that cannot win the World Series as the season and playoffs go on.

Here are some tips for gamblers getting in late on the MLB futures odds on a World Series winner:

  • Are there any injured players that will be out for an extended amount of time?
  • Has the team made any trades before the trade deadline in hopes of making a push for winning the World Series?
  • Is there a team getting on a hot streak or cold streak that could affect their chances of winning the World Series?
  • Does the team have a solid or weak bullpen?
  • Does the team have a batter or batters that are getting hot or cold as the season progresses?

These are just some of the critical things to look at before making a wager on the MLB futures odds on the MLB World Series.

These tips can help the gambler have a better chance of winning an MLB bet.

MLB World Series odds are all moneyline bets. Before the MLB season starts, all teams will have plus odds, with the favorite having the lowest plus odds in the group of teams. As the MLB season progresses, the team with the most wins will be the favorite. Favorites will continue to have plus odds until the playoffs conclude.
Plus odds show how much a $100 winning wager will return to the gambler, with negative odds will show how much a gambler will have to wager to win $100. A team with +600 odds will return $600 on a winning wager of $100, while -700 odds would require a $700 wager for a gambler to win $100.
There is no way to make a parlay on the World Series, as only one team can win the World Series. You can, however, hedge your World Series bet by betting on multiple teams to win the World Series.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
