2023 MLB National League Futures Odds and Preview

By Jeff Stinger

Over in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been the consensus favorites to represent the league in the World Series. That’s certainly the case once more entering the new baseball season, but several other teams make compelling cases themselves as the next NL champions, as last year’s inspiring Philadelphia Phillies squad would attest.

Nitrobetting is ready to lend a hand to its bettors with their winning bets to be shot out of the park. This time, let’s break down several favorites and sleepers to win the 2023 MLB season’s National League pennant and their respective MLB odds to win the National League Championship Series to date.

2023 National League Championship Series Winner Futures Odds


Los Angeles Dodgers

  • Odds to win the 2023 MLB ALCS: +300

In what feels like forever, the Dodgers are pegged as odds-on preseason favorites to win the National League. Los Angeles has six NLCS appearances since 2013 are remain loaded with superstar players that other teams can only dream of. From former MVPs in Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman to top starting pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Julio Urias, the Dodgers will always have more weapons than others to make another deep playoff run and possibly pick up their fourth NLCS title in seven years.

New York Mets

  • Odds to win the 2023 MLB ALCS: +350

Call it addition by subtraction for the Mets, who lost their star ace in Jacob deGrom only to acquire another decorated Cy Young arm in Justin Verlander. That gives New York a huge boost coming off of last year’s 101-win campaign. Even though the infamous failed deal for Carlos Correa didn’t push through, the Mets still managed to pick up other vital additions like Jose Quintana, Kodai Senga, and David Robertson to keep them in the conversation as favorites to win the National League in 2023.

Dark Horses

Milwaukee Brewers

  • Odds to win the 2023 MLB ALCS: +1200

The Guardians reclaimed the AL Central last season for the first time since lording over the division between 2016 and 2018. However, will that be enough for them to seriously contend for the World Series title? Cleveland barely made waves during the offseason, neither adding big-name free agents nor losing their key pieces from last year’s roster. Star slugger Jose Ramirez is an AL MVP in the making and the starting rotation is still reliable but not entirely daunting. As such, the Guardians are mere sleeper picks to win the World Series and finally break their 75-year title drought.

San Francisco Giants

  • Odds to win the 2023 MLB ALCS: +1600

Like the Mets, the Giants were duped by the Carlos Correa sweepstake circus and ended up with leftovers from free agency with the likes of Michael Conforto and Mitch Haniger. San Francisco failed to recapture the magic from their record-setting 107-win campaign in 2021 by finishing with a disappointingly even 81-81 record last season. This dud of a season limits the Giants’ odds as mere sleepers to win the NLCS this year, with former Manager of the Year Gabe Kaplan’s credibility as not just a one-hit wonder at stake in 2023.

Huge Reach

Pittsburgh Pirates

  • Odds to win the 2023 MLB ALCS: +10000

Failing to crack the 70-win mark in each of the last four seasons are the Pirates, who are hoping that the return of a franchise legend will bring them back to postseason contention at the very least. Former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen is back in Pittsburgh where his career took off. However, McCutchen is now 36 years old and well past his prime. Fans of the Buccos will be thrilled to have their modern-day great back on the team, but the lack of other experienced talents caps the Pirates as long shots to snap out of their seemingly eternal funk, let alone win their first NLCS title since 1979.
