World Series

  • Bovada offers a prop for a first-time team to win the 2024 World Series at +850 odds.
  • The Mariners, Rays, Padres, Brewers, and the Rockies have all never won a World Series.
  • Julio Rodríguez to record at least 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases is -185 at Bovada.

SEATTLE – The MLB officially kicks off the regular season on Thursday afternoon and Bovada offers season specials for teams and players. One of the best props for the season is for the World Series to be won by a team that has never won it before.

First Time Word Series Winner In 2024 +850

This prop has seen extra attention at legal sports betting sites for the 2024 season, as the Texas Rangers won their first ever World Series in 2023. This bet at Bovada would have paid out $850 if somebody put $100 on it before last season.

For the 2024 season, five teams have never won a World Series. Three of those teams are legitimate contenders based on the opening World Series Odds. However, the Mariners have the shortest odds and the most upside for the upcoming season.

The Seattle Mariners may have missed the 2023 MLB postseason, but Julio Rodríguez has now shown in his first two seasons in the league that he can be a difference-maker. He is coming off a season where he had 180 hits, 103 RBIs, 37 home runs, and 37 stolen bases.

Bovada offers -185 odds for Rodríguez to finish the 2024 season with at least 30 home runs and at least 30 stolen bases. Rodríguez’s Baseball Reference projection for the season is 29 home runs and 30 stolen bases.

To help out Rodríguez and Luis Castillo, the Mariners have added TB Rays first baseman Luke Raley to the roster. For the 2023 Rays, Raley had 89 hits, 56 runs, and homered 19 times. He is projected to hit 16 home runs for the Mariners this season.

Seattle finished third in the American League West but were only two wins away from having the same record as the Astros and Rangers (90). For the 2024 season, the Mariners MLB betting odds are right there with the Astros and the 2023 World Series winners.

AL West Odds

  • Astros +115
  • Rangers +180
  • Mariners +260
  • Angels +4500
  • Athletics +30000

Other Teams That Could Win First World Series

The Rays and the Padres are both looking for their first World Series win as well and both have +2500 opening odds. The Rays made the 2023 postseason but were swept by the Rangers and then traded Tyler Glasnow to the LA Dodgers. The Padres did not make the postseason and traded Juan Soto and Trent Grisham to the New York Yankees.
