Blue Jays Among World Series Odds Chalk

The Toronto Blue Jays aren’t at the top of the list of the odds to win the World Series at online sportsbook Bodog heading into spring training, but they’re among the betting favorites as they look to improve on last year’s appearance in the ALCS.

The Blue Jays are tied with the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers at +1200 on the 2016 World Series odds at Bodog with spring training getting underway this week; that has them behind the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, and New York Mets on those MLB futures.

The Blue Jays surged to the AL East division title last season and a victory in their ALDS before coming up short against the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series. Toronto did lose a key piece of last year’s late-season run, though, as starting pitcher David Price left as a free agent in the winter

Price was signed by the rival Red Sox, who will be looking to bounce back this season after ending up dead last in the AL East in 2015.

The Dodgers managed to make the playoffs last season but were also a disappointment, falling to the Mets in their NLDS matchup.

Meanwhile, the Cubs are the +400 favorites with the Giants and the Mets behind them as +800 second-favorites on the current World Series betting lines at Bodog. Chicago, of course, hasn’t won the World Series in over a century, and was bounced by New York in the National League Championship Series last year.

The next level of World Series contenders at the sportsbook then has the defending-champion Royals and the Washington Nationals both at +1600, followed by the Houston Astros at +1800, and the Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, and St. Louis Cardinals at +2000.

The Texas Rangers, knocked out in five games by the Blue Jays in the ALDS last season, join the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Yankees at +2200 at Bodog, with the Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels, and Chicago White Sox at +3300, and the Seattle Mariners at +4000.

Longer shots include the Baltimore Orioles and the Minnesota Twins at +5000, while the Tampa Bay Rays lag behind at +7500 along with the Miami Marlins and Oakland Athletics. The Milwaukee Brewers, Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, and Philadelphia Phillies are all at +10000, with the Colorado Rockies and the Atlanta Braves rounding out the list at +15000.
