Odds to Win NL West
*Odds via FanDuel Sportsbook as of 7/5/19
Los Angeles Dodgers (-9000)
A juggernaut of a team that has a chance at becoming only the seventh team to ever win at least 110 games in a single season, the Dodgers have been unstoppable. On a 109-win pace (remember the Red Sox won 108 a year ago… and beat them in the World Series), the Dodgers currently have the NL’s top betting favorite to win MVP in Cody Bellinger (-110) and two of the NL’s top three Cy Young contenders in Hyun-Jin Ryu (+160) and Walker Buehler (+900).
The Dodgers rank in the top three offensively in the NL in runs, batting average and home runs, while owning the top team ERA in the National League at an astonishing 3.38 mark. The Dodgers have the highest midseason odds of any team to win their division at -9000, and it doesn’t feel like anyone is going to come close to breaking up the Dodgers’ run to a seventh consecutive NL West title. Did we forget to mention that they’re leading the NL in home wins (37) and have won 37 of their 46 games at Dodger Stadium? After falling short in the Fall Classic each of the last two years, is the third time going to be the charm for the Dodgers as they look to win their first World Series since 1988?
On pace to finish: 109-53
More Dodgers odds: +120 to win National League (best in MLB), +280 to win World Series (best in MLB)
