2021 MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight
Here’s a look at three favorites, three teams from the middle of the pack, and three long shots to win the 2021 World Series.
Updated November 2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds for 2021
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Los Angeles Dodgers +300
It’s tough to find reasons to criticize this current Dodgers roster. They let some role players go so the depth isn’t quite what it was, but they’re front-end talent is the envy of every other ball club in the National League.
Now that they’ve gotten past their postseason demons and are about to add two former Cy Young award winners in Trevor Bauer and David Price into the rotation, the sky’s the limit for this team.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: San Diego Padres +750
Another noisey offseason for the Padres, who’ve made huge strides improving their pitching rotation with the additions of Yu Darvish, Blake Snell, and Mark Melancon in the bullpen. All of general manager A.J. Preller’s tinkering with this roster appears ready to yield some serious dividends.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: New York Mets +900
Steve Cohen’s shown this offseason he’s willing to do what it takes to ease the pain of tortured Mets fans. Had they been able to close the deal with Bauer there’d be a lot more reason for optimism, but Franciso Lindor’s a better long-term acquisition than anyone who was on the free agent market. Even so, the team’s probably still a few moves from being true contenders.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Padres +750
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Toronto Blue Jays +2000
The Blue Jays are another team that hasn’t been afraid to spend this offseason to help a solid young core. The signings of George Springer and Marcus Semien should pay immediate dividends, and Kirby Yates should help solidify the back end of the bullpen. The AL East is tough to escape from, but this roster is poised to break out in the near future.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: St. Louis Cardinals +2400
The list of splashy offseason acquisitions for the Cardinals is short, but Nolan Arenado is as good an acquisition as a team can expect to make. He’s going to add the type of run production this clubs been needing from the middle of the lineup, and the NL Central is hardly a murderer’s row this year.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Tampa Bay Rays +2800
The Rays won the AL a year ago, but they’ll enter 2021 missing some key pieces from that roster, most notably Blake Snell and Charlie Morton. Kevin Cash has made it clear he can make due without front-end starters, so we’ll see how big an impact that ends up having in the coming months.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Tampa Bay Rays +2800
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Washington Nationals +4000
No team is in better position for a bounce back season than the Nationals, who’ve quietly added pieces to an already solid roster that’s just a year removed from a World Series win. Josh Bell, Kyle Schwarber, Jon Lester, and Brad Hand is a solid haul for a team ready to make another postseason run, offering one of the best values on the futures board.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Los Angeles Angels +5000
The Angels entered the offseason with a lot of areas of need as they try to build a contender around franchise cornerstone Mike Trout. They tried to address those through a number of one-year deals and trades for players set to enter free agency after the season. That will give general manager Perry Minasian some flexibility in the offseason, but it’s tough to imagine this team living up to potential this season with the patchwork roster that’s been assembled.
The World Series Futures Betting Odds Play: Philadelphia Phillies +5500
The Phillies had their sights set on retaining J.T. Realmuto all offseason long, and after a long wait, they were able to do so. The past couple seasons have been disappointing for Philadelphia, which hoped the addition of Bryce Harper was the move that would thrust them into contention.
2021 World Series Futures Betting Odds: Nationals +4000
