Aug 2, 2013, 6:37 PM PDT


Now that Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone, the sports handicappers have updated their odds.

According to, the teams to beat are the Detroit Tigers and the Atlanta Braves.

Odds to win the 2013 World Series

Detroit Tigers                            6/1

Atlanta Braves                           7/1

Los Angeles Dodgers                7/1

St. Louis Cardinals                    15/2

Boston Red Sox                       8/1

Tampa Bay Rays                       17/2

Oakland Athletics                      9/1

Pittsburgh Pirates                      12/1

Cincinnati Reds                         14/1

Texas Rangers                          14/1

The San Francisco Giants are sandwiched between the Nationals and Royals at 50/1. The A’s are currently favored to win the AL West, while Las Vegas has the Dodgers winning the NL West. Repeating as World Series Champions is a tough task. The last team to win back-to-back titles was the New York Yankees (1998-2000).
