LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers have dominated the league this MLB season and has remained the favorite at sportsbooks to repeat as MLB World Series Champions.
With the season winding down, the Dodgers’ MLB odds are only getting shorter.
The biggest threat to the Dodgers, however, is their own divisional rivals in the San Francisco Giants. These two teams have been neck and neck all season.
2021 World Series Winner Odds
- Los Angeles Dodgers +320
- San Francisco Giants +500

- Tampa Bay Rays +650
- Milwaukee Brewers +700
- Chicago White Sox +750
- Atlanta Braves +1800

Fight To Repeat
The Los Angeles Dodgers opened with +400 odds to repeat as champions the day after winning the 2020 World Series. Before the season started, these odds at legal sportsbooks shortened to +350.
The Dodgers’ odds to win the 2021 World Series now sit at +320 with a league-best team run differential of +244.
The Dodgers star pitcher Walker Buehler is having a career season in 2021. Buehler has an ERA of 2.32, 189 strikeouts, has a 14-3 win record while going 5-1 on the road.
With big consistent performances from their top players, the Dodgers are well poised to make a postseason run. Unfortunately, there is a giant elephant in the room that cannot be ignored.
San Francisco Giants Incoming
The Giants and Dodgers have the best records in baseball and are both in the NL West. No matter how good the Dodgers have been this season, they cannot comfortably claim their division.
Due to this, one of the two juggernauts will play in the Wild Card Elimination Game as only a single team can be number one.
The Giants have the second shortest World Series odds to win at +500 but opened up at +8000 before the season started.
