Every Team Reviewed With World Series Odds!

By: Art Aronson | Saturday, April 1, 2017

On the eve of the 2017 MLB season, AAA Sports quickly reviews every team and looks at their current odds to win the World Series.

American League East

Boston Red Sox (7/1) - Combination of talent and unlimited resources is hard to beat.

New York Yankees (30/1) - Young talent pushes out veterans in the Bronx.

Toronto Blue Jays (30/1) - Will the Jays always be the team of the future?

Baltimore Orioles (50/1) - O's will give up a lot of runs unless the starters are better than advertised.

Tampa Bay Rays (90/1) - Rays vets might want to rent and not buy. Could be lots of mid-season changes


American League Central

Cleveland Indians (7/1) - Solid pitching and Edwin Encarnacion added to the lineup. What's not to like?

Detroit Tigers (30/1) - Justin Verlander no longer has a top-five fastball.

Kansas City Royals (80/1) - Another team that might off-load some bodies if it starts slow.

Minnesota Twins (120/1) - 81-81 would be considered a success in the Twin Cities

Chicago White Sox (400/1) - Full rebuild is under way. Pouring the cement for the foundation.


American League West

Texas Rangers (30/1) - Catcher Jonathan Lucroy will have the whole season to make the pitchers better.

Seattle Mariners (30/1) - One last playoff run for an aging core of veterans.

Houston Astros (12/1) - Stros' record against the Rangers (4-15) last year cost them dearly.

Los Angeles Angels (60/1) - They wouldn't think of trading Mike Trout. Would they?

Oakland Athletics (120/1) - Not much to root for besides slugger Khris Davis.


National League East

Washington Nationals (12/1) - Clock is ticking for Nats and owner Ted Lerner, who turns 92 during the World Series this year.

New York Mets (12/1) - Great starting pitching, but only one starter (Noah Syndergaard) made it through 2016 without injury.

Atlanta Braves (120/1) - New stadium and some new players dot the roster, but third place is the ceiling.

Miami Marlins (100/1) - Giancarlo Stanton injuries, Jose Fernandez tragedy . . . Marlins can't seem to catch a break.

Philadelphia Phillies (120/1) - Too many things have to go right to keep the Phillies out of the cellar.


National League Central

Chicago Cubs (19/5) - Have to look long and hard to find a reason that they don't win the division.

Pittsburgh Pirates (100/1) - Bounce-back year for Andrew McCutcheon gets Bucs back in playoffs.

St. Louis Cardinals (30/1) - Age takes its toll as Cards finish out of playoff mix.

Milwaukee Brewers (300/1) - Too many question marks in the rotation.

Cincinnati Reds (350/1) - Pretty grim in the Queen City, where the Reds have mediocre talent and an Athletics-type budget.


National League West

Los Angeles Dodgers (7/1) - Make it five straight division titles.

Colorado Rockies (60/1) - Deep lineup and improved pitching could help Rockies open some eyes.

San Francisco Giants (14/1) - Great one-two in Bumgarner and Cueto, but the rest of the team is getting long in the tooth.

Arizona Diamondbacks (120/1) - Defense was terrible last year, doesn't figure to be much better this time around.

San Diego Padres (500/1) - It's your money, but they're 500/1 for a lot of reasons.
