The Astros haven’t even raised their 2022 World Series banner yet, but 29 other MLB teams are already focused on the 2023 Fall Classic.
Houston won its second title in six years by beating the Philadelphia Phillies in six games last fall. The team is among the contenders to win it all again this coming season, but several other powerhouse organizations are nipping at their heels.
Before spring training gets into full swing over the next few weeks, let’s take a look at World series odds for the upcoming season:
Which team is favored to win the 2023 World Series?
The Astros are still considered the team to beat in 2023, but not by much.

They are followed by the New York Yankees (+650), Los Angeles Dodgers (+750), New York Mets (+750), Atlanta Braves (+1000) and San Diego Padres (+1000).
