2024 MLB Divisional Championships Odds Update and Betting Favorites | Baseball Lines for the Season

2024 MyBookie MLB | 155th edition of professional baseball in United States
Wednesday, March 20th – Sunday, September 29th, 2024
162 Games | 30 Teams


New York Yankees +165

New York added Juan Soto to the offense and Marcus Stroman to the pitching staff. Gerrit Cole still leads the staff, and will be called upon to be the ace. Behind him, there are some question marks. Offensively, this is going to be a really talented team. The progression of Anthony Volpe, along with how well Alex Verdugo can hit in the Yankees lineup is going to be the biggest question. The Yankees barely went over .500 a season ago, and finished fourth in the divisional race. It may be a bit of a stretch for them to be favorites in 2024, but the odds show they are. The Orioles, Blue Jays, Rays and Red Sox all seem to have improved teams from a season ago. New York is +165 to win the American League East.

Minnesota Twins -115

The lineup has some guys that have not quite hit their stride yet in Major League Baseball. The lineup also has some guys that are poised for monster seasons. Carlos Correa is a been there and done that type shortstop in the middle of the order. Royce Lewis came up to the big leagues with a bang and showed a ton of pop. The bottom of the order with guys like Matt Wallner and Ryan Jeffers will be a factor here. The pitching should be good again with Pablo Lopez and Joe Ryan leading the front end. Minnesota is the favorite in a bad division. This is likely the worst division in baseball. Minnesota is a big favorite, as they are the biggest divisional favorite in the American League; at -115.

Houston Astros +100

Season after season, this is a team that is up at the top of the standings. Houston, in a division with the defending champion Texas Rangers, and also a very good Seattle team, is listed at even money to win the division. Houston will see Altuve, Alvarez, Bregman, Tucker and Abreu at the start of that lineup. There are not many teams that will show a better front five in their lineup. The rotation still has some question marks, such as how good Framber Valdez and Cristian Javier actually are. If they are good, and dominant on the front end of the rotation, this team will once again be scary good. They will be challenged, but this is a team that continues to shine bright under the lights.

Atlanta Braves -240

Ronald Acuna Jr. was the Most Valuable Player a season ago. His season was absolutely legendary. This is going to be the same lineup that produced one of the best seasons in Major League Baseball history. Austin Riley and Matt Olson mashed, and when you got Michael Harris batting at the bottom of the order, you know you are in good hands. The rotation will once again see Max Fried and Spencer Strider at the front. Atlanta added an interesting rotation piece in lefthander Chris Sale. The sky’s the limit for the Atlanta Braves, and that is the reason they come in as the second biggest divisional favorite in all of baseball. The Braves are -240 to win the National League East.

St. Louis Cardinals +185

Likely the biggest disappointment in all of Major League Baseball a season ago. St. Louis should not have finished last in a poor division. The Cardinals still have the same pieces on the offensive side. They are looking for big bounce back seasons from both Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado. Put those two together with the talent of Jordan Walker and Masyn Winn, and you would think this team should be able to contend. The Cardinals rotation is much different, with the additions of Sonny Gray, Kyle Gibson and Lance Lynn. They will team with Miles Mikolas and Steven Matz to lead the way. The Cardinals have a tough schedule out of the gate, and all eyes are on Marmol, as he is one of the early favorites to be the first manager fired in 2024.

Los Angeles Dodgers -450

As if this team needed to get any better. Dave Roberts and the Dodgers added Shohei Ohtani to the mix. Ohtani will likely bat in the middle of Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman. Good luck to opposing pitchers with those three. The Dodgers will rely on veterans Will Smith, Max Muncy and Jason Heyward, but have young guys ready to take over if needed. In the rotation, Clayton Kershaw is going to start the season injured, as will Walker Buehler. They added Yoshinobu Yamamoto to the rotation, along with Tyler Glasnow. When the season begins, those two are going to be 1 and 2. Bobby Miller and James Paxton should be next for Los Angeles. The Dodgers are the biggest divisional favorites in Major League Baseball. Los Angeles is listed at -450.

There you have it. That is a look at the divisional championship odds for each of the six divisions. It will be interesting to see how many of those teams come away with division titles in 2024. The season gets underway on Thursday March 28th, 2024. The first game on the schedule for 2024 is the Milwaukee Brewers at the New York Mets. There is a full slate of games, and Shohei Ohtani will open up at home against the St. Louis Cardinals. In the American League, the defending World Series Champion Texas Rangers open up at home against the Chicago Cubs. Enjoy the Spring Training, and best of luck with all your MLB betting Today!

2022 MLB Divisional Championships Odds

Updated MLB Division Betting Odds for the 2022 Season

Opening Day this MLB season is Thursday, April 7. With opening day on the doorstep, it makes sense for baseball handicappers to take one more look at division odds. Check out MLB Odds for the favorite along with a free pick to win every Major League Baseball division in 2022.

2022 MLB Season

  • When: Thursday, April 7 – Wednesday, Oct. 5

AL East

  • Favorite: Toronto Blue Jays +149

The love for the Blue Jays knows no bounds. Toronto is loaded. But the Jays may not have what it takes to win the tough AL East Division.

The Rays could sneak their way to another division title. The batting line up isn’t as spectacular as Toronto’s but it’s plenty good while the rotation should be better than the Blue Jays’. 

AL East Pick: Tampa Bay Rays +240

AL Central 

  • Favorite: Chicago White Sox -243

The favored Chicago White Sox are a big time chalk to win the AL Central. It’s tough to go against the Chi-Sox to get it done.

The starting rotation looks as solid as it gets. The White Sox list Lance Lynn as their ace, but Lucas Giolito is the pitcher who could win the Cy Young. That tells us something.

Also, Jose Abreu leads a terrific batting lineup that includes hitters with power and hitters that concentrate on base hits. The White Sox should win their division no problem. 

AL Central Pick: Chicago White Sox

AL West

  • Favorite: Houston Astros -200

The Angels and Mariners will send competitive teams to the diamond. Neither should be the division chalk.

Houston’s rotation will be one of the best in baseball with or without Justin Verlander. If Verlander returns to his best form, forget it. The Astros should boast the best starting rotation in baseball. 

The bats, like always, will be hot. Most importantly? This Houston Astros’ squad has experience. A World Series berth is not out of the question. A division victory should be a sure thing. 

AL East Pick: Houston Astros 

NL East

  • Favorite: Atlanta Braves +102

Matt Olson should play well enough to temper the forever sting they will feel from Freddie Freeman leaving to go and play with the Dodgers. But just because Olson will play great, it doesn’t mean Atlanta wins the NL East. 

Philadelphia improved leaps and bounds by signing designated hitter Kyle Schwarber. It’s impossible to predict how the DH in the NL will change things. One thing we know, though, is that Schwarber is the perfect designated hitter. 

He’s a liability in the field but a monster at the plate. So Philly’s starters, Zach Wheeler is a legit Cy Young contender, can relax while Schwarber blasts dingers into the stands. 

NL East Pick: Philadelphia Phillies +285

NL Central 

  • Favorite: Milwaukee Brewers -214

The Brewers have a fantastic starting rotation led by 2021 Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes. The bullpen rates as one of the best in baseball and like the Phillies, the Brewers should benefit by the NL adopting the DH.

Christian Yellin can start in left field. Andrew McCutchen can play DH. So the Brewers are a serious World Series contender, which means they win their division. 

NL Central Pick: Milwaukee Brewers

NL West 

  • Favorite: Los Angeles Dodgers -280

It’s tempting to go with the San Francisco Giants because the odds on the Dodgers feel underlaid. But San Francisco isn’t good enough to beat a Dodgers team with Freddie Freeman and a starting rotation that doesn’t require Clayton Kershaw to dominate on the mound. 

Not only that, but Craig Kimbrel might be a step up from Kenley Jensen, which means the Dodgers improved the closer position. Nobody likes to lay -280. But, yeah, the Dodgers could be all that and a bag of chips like the odds indicate. 

NL Central Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers
