Dodgers edge Astros in early 2023 World Series odds originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Astros haven’t even held their World Series parade in Houston yet, but 29 other MLB teams are already focused on the 2023 Fall Classic.

Houston won its second title in six years by beating the Philadelphia Phillies in six games. The team is among the contenders to win it all next season, but another powerhouse organization is pinned as the overall favorite for next season.

While the Astros celebrate the title they clinched on Saturday, let’s take a look at World series odds for next season.

Which team is favored to win the 2023 World Series?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are considered the team to beat in 2023, but not by much.

After a record-setting 2022 regular season led to a disappointing NLDS exit, the Dodgers have the best 2023 World Series odds at +700, according to our partner, PointsBet. They are followed by the Astros (+750), Atlanta Braves (+800), New York Mets (+1000) and New York Yankees (+1200).

Which teams have the lowest 2023 World Series odds?

The Oakland A’s are the biggest long shot to win the 2023 World Series with +15000 odds, according to PointsBet. 

After that, the Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates are tied for the next-worst odds at +12500. The Cincinnati Reds (+10000) and Kansas City Royals (+9000) round out the bottom five.

The San Francisco Giants have +3000 odds to win the 2023 World Series, according to PointsBet, putting them squarely in the middle of the pack.

That +3000 is third-best in the NL West. The Dodgers have a cushion over the San Diego Padres (+1500), while the Giants rank ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks (+7000) and Colorado Rockies (+8000).
