MLB’s 2021 season is in full swing as each baseball club has played 40 games. With three quarters left of the regular season and teams welcoming fans back to their stadiums, the final 120 or so games hold plenty of excitement.
With a record of 26-16, the San Francisco Giants are currently a half-game ahead of the San Diego Padres for first place in the NL West. San Francisco hasn’t made the postseason in a few years, so they have the motivation (and the bats) to make a push to do so in 2021.
Who has the best odds to win the 2021 World Series?
The Dodgers, reigning World Series champions, currently sit as the favorite to take the title again in 2021. The Dodgers started the season on a tear, but hit a rough patch as the injury bug has not been kind. The New York Yankees, San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox and New York Mets also are favored to be in the running to take home a championship ring this season.
