Odds to win the World Series 2015

world series 2015The Washington Nationals won 96 games a season ago, which earned them the No. 1 seed in the National League Playoffs. Home field advantage proved of little use, though, as Washington bowed out in the NLDS to eventual champion San Francisco. In spite of their lackluster performance in last year’s postseason, the MLB odds makers at Bovada have pegged the Nationals as a 13 to 2 favorite to win the 2015 World Series.

Washington as the top World Series pick makes a good deal of sense as the team certainly did a lot this off-season to avoid another playoff face-plant. The Nationals lost a couple of notable performers in Tyler Clippard and Adam LaRoche, but they added 2013 AL Cy Young Max Scherzer to what was an already formidable rotation and they also traded for shortstop Yunel Escobar.

Nonetheless, Washington should have plenty of competition for the NL Pennant. The latest odds to win the World Series 2015 release from Bovada is also fond of the Dodgers, the favorite to win the 2014 World Series, as well as the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs.

Los Angeles is priced at 17 to 2 odds win the Fall Classic while St. Louis and Chicago are drawing 12 to 1 and 14 to 1 odds, respectively.

The World Series favorite out the American League is 2013 champion Boston. The retooled Red Sox, who brought in a number of new faces, including Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez and Wade Miley, are a 10 to 1 pick to win the pennant.

The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners are also considered strong contenders for the title, both coming in a 14 to 1 World Series odds.

Last year’s pennant winners, the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants, are getting 28 to 1 and 16 to 1 odds to win the 2015 World Series.
