With only a few weeks left in the regular season, we check in with our power rankings. As always, we compare How do these teams rank? And then compare them to their odds of winning the World Series on DraftKings Sportsbook. Let’s take a look!

Los Angeles Dodgers
Power Ranking: first (last week: first)
World Series Odds: +360

For the rest of the season it will be difficult to move the Dodgers off the top of the power rankings. They are the fastest team to reach 100 wins since 2001 and have shown no signs of slowing down. The Dodgers have 17 games left and don’t have a very tough schedule to endure. 11 of his remaining games are against teams under .500, including six against the Rockies and five against D-backs. The Dodgers have feasted in the National League West 45-16, entering Sunday. It’s also one of the biggest reasons the Dodgers have already sealed a playoff spot and division.

As it currently stands, the Dodgers have the best overall odds to win it all at +360. Next in line will be the Astros at +425, which we’ll talk about in a moment. I don’t mind taking the Dodgers at this number, because we could soon see that change as we got closer to the playoffs. The Dodgers will face the winner of the 4th and 5th seed Wild Card Series, currently standing as the Braves and Padres. If the Dodgers were to face the Padres, they would face a team going 12-4 against this season. That is, of course, if the Padres can somehow oust the Braves, which will be no small task. Either way, the Dodgers should be viewed as the favourite, as the odds show.

Houston Astros
Power Ranking: Second (last week: second)
World Series Odds: +425

The Astros remain the favorite of the American League, as they continue to pile up wins in the West Division. After beating the Athletics for the 12th time this season, the Astros are now four wins away from reaching the pinnacle of 100 wins. The rotation also received a major boost, as Justin Verlander returned from a short absence due to a calf injury. It’s as if he never left the field, as the 39-year-old was in postseason form. He bowled five no-hit innings with nine strikes, which would have been a 5–0 victory for the ‘Stross’. Verlander being back and healthy is a huge advantage for this rotation when they enter the postseason. The combination of Verlander, Lance McCullers Jr., Framber Valdez and Jose Urquidi is going to be tough for a match against the team. The Astros have the lowest ERA of rotation in the American League at 3.04, which is 3.49. have to go with FIP and a 16.5 war, If any team in the American League can potentially beat the Dodgers, this Astros team is ready to do so.

atlanta brave
Power Ranking: Fourth (3rd last week)
World Series Odds: +800

One of my favorite long shots to win The Braves World Series. At the current price of 8-1, they are a much better team than these odds show. This lineup is so scary from top to bottom and they are getting production from almost everywhere. I mean, when you have a potential Rookie of the Year candidate in seventh place, you know things are going well.

During the second half of the season, the Braves dropped .261/.326/.422 with 71 home runs, 258 RBIs, 270 runs and 27 stolen bases. He is in the top five in almost every offensive category as well as having one of the best rotations and bullpenings. His bullpen has been one of only two during the second half, averaging more than 10 strikes per nine innings, leaving the Astros behind. If this team heats up, it will be nearly impossible to beat them, even with some of the heavy hitters they will face. If you’re looking for a team with long odds, the Atlanta guys fit the bill.

Seattle Mariners
Power Ranking: 9th (7th last week)
World Series Odds: +2500

The Mariners haven’t made the playoffs yet, but they are on the verge. FanGraph has their current chances of making the playoffs at 98.9%, so yes, I would say they are good. what’s attractive about american league wild card It’s that Rays, Blue Jays and Mariners are constantly flip-flopping their seeding. As of Sunday night, the Blue Jays are in the top spot, followed by the Rays and then the Mariners. The Mariners didn’t do themselves any favors by losing all three games this weekend, so ending up in the final wild card spot could be a best-case scenario for them.

If the Mariners end up with the final wild card spot, they will set up an easy matchup against the Guardians. Don’t get me wrong, this Guardians team has defied all expectations and looks like they are going to win American League Central. However, if I am choosing between Guardians, Blue Jays or Rays as my first opponent, the Guardians will be the preferred opponent. The winner of that series will face the Yankees, except they hold on to the American League East. The Guardians are 19th and 21st in WOBA in terms of runs scored during the second half. The pitching has been very good but the inconsistency at the plate has been his weakness. A strong pitching club like the Mariners can take advantage of this. At 25-1, it might be wise for the Mariners to try to grab that last seed, as chances in the World Series can be paved this way.
