Updated World Series Odds After Opening Day

2023 MLB Regular Season: Thursday, Mar. 30 – Sunday, Oct. 1


Houston Remains the Favorite but Dodgers and Braves Looked Good

The Stros remain the overall chalk to win the Fall Classic, but, wow, that wasn’t good. Houston lost their first game via a 3-2 score to the Chicago White Sox.

The good news if you’re a Houston fan is that Framber Valdez threw great. For some reason, Dusty Baker pulled him after the fifth even though Framber gave up 6 hits, 0 walks, 0 runs, and struck out 4.

The Dodgers and Braves both won via blowouts. Both teams played two of the worst teams in baseball, LAD faced the Diamondbacks and the ATL took on the Nationals. Still, both teams showed in the wins they deserve to be World Series favorites.

Yankees, Mets, and Blue Jays Move Up

The Yankees and Mets both leapfrogged to +750 status after beating up their first game opponents. The Yankees impressed more among the two New York squads.

Gerrit Cole looked better than ever when striking out 11 Giants and allowing 3 hits in 6 innings. Not only that, but the Yankees dropped 4 earned runs onto SF ace Logan Webb.

One thing to pay attention to? Webb struck out 12 Yankees. If NYY continues to strike out, it could be an issue.

The Blue Jays may have had the most impressive win of the day. Toronto ace Alek Manoah didn’t throw well. In 3 innings, Manoah gave up 5 earned runs on 9 hits.

But the Jays rallied for a 10-9 road win against the NL Central favored St. Louis Cardinals. Manoah should right the ship. So if you’re a Toronto fan, you must take comfort in the fact the lineup and the bullpen can bail out the Blue Jays’ starters.

Philadelphia and San Diego Struggled on Opening Day

Two preseason NL favorites struggled in their first games. The Phillies lost 7-11 to the Rangers. Philly played well. They just came up against a better team than many realize.

San Diego had no excuses. The Friars fell to Colorado and it wasn’t close. San Diego lost 7-2. Not only did the Rockies, supposedly one of the worst teams in MLB, outscore SD, but the Padres couldn’t get much going at the plate.

It’s only one game. However, a single game can set the tone, and San Diego did not look good at all. SD must bounce back on Friday or over the weekend to justify their World Series odds.

After Opening Day, the Texas Rangers Look like the Best Underdog Play

One game does not make a season, but if you’re itching to place a early World Series bet on an underdog with a chance, look no further than the Texas Rangers.

The Rangers scored 11 runs against Philadelphia. The Phillies aren’t much different than they were last season, which means the Rangers’ O is legit.

At +3300 odds, Texas, yes, after just one game, is an overlay.
