Early 2024 World Series Odds

By Hank Blaine

When the 2024 MLB Season starts, manager Bruce Bochy and the Texas Rangers will be looking to do something that hasn’t been done in 24 seasons, win back-to-back World Series. Not since Joe Torre led the Yankees to three straight Series titles form 1998 through 2000 has a baseball team repeated. While manager of the San Francisco Giants in the 2010s, Bochy got the closest. Is Texas a good bet to pull off the repeat? Or should MLB future handicappers look to a different team to lift the Fall Classic title? Check out 2024 World Series Opening odds and way too early picks.

A Closer Look at the 2023 World Series Odds

There are not lines

Top Pick to Win the 2024 World Series

Surprised? Don’t be. Sure, the Texas Rangers should lose Jordan Montgomery and some relievers, but Nathan Eovaldi, Jon Gray, and Max Scherzer return.

Jacob deGrom should join those three and no manager in the past twenty seasons is as good as setting up his rotation in the playoffs as Bochy. So as long as Texas makes the postseason, which includes securing a wildcard like they did in 2023, their manager becomes the X factor.

Bochy won a World Series with a single pitcher, Madison Baumgarner, in 2014. Bochy is a freaking genius postseason manager, which means the Rangers can be the first team since NYY to score back-to-back Fall Classic titles.

Second Pick to Win the 2024 World Series

The best team in the regular season didn’t have it in the playoffs. That will change in 2024 because the Phillies are likely to lose Aaron Nola, which means the ATL aren’t likely to face the rival Phils in the first round.

Even if the ATL does, expect slight adjustments that gets the Braves back to the World Series. The starting rotation remains ridiculous. Bryce Elder, listed fourth on the rotation, moves up to the third slot should Charlie Morton decide to retire or take a bigger one-year deal somewhere else.

Top NL Underdog to Win the 2024 World Series

The Diamondbacks have developed a roster with legs. NL Rookie of the Year Corbin Carroll is only going to get better. Carroll is ridiculously fast. He’d be a track star if that was his sport.

The rotation is fantastic. Merrill Kelly is a solid second ace while Zac Gallen should be in line for the NL Cy Young. The key, and the reason to be bullish on Zona’s chances of winning the World Series, is third starter Brandon Pfaadt.

Pfaadt has ace talent. Torey Lovullo managed Pfaadt great last season. Expect Lovullo and the pitching coaches to develop Pfaadt this offseason into a legit sub-4.00 ERA starter who can pitch until the sixth or beyond in every start.

Top AL Underdog to Win the 2024 World Series

The top 3 starters in the Mariners’ rotation: Luis Castillo, George Kirby, and Logan Gilbert,posted a sub-4.00 ERA in 2023. The bullpen is solid and the Mariners can score runs.

The real reason to like Seattle is because the Mariners get to play the Rangers and Astros all season long. So if Seattle manages to make it to the playoffs, they will be battle tested, which will only help them in the postseason.

What’s wrong with the Dodgers, Yankees, and Astros?

The Dodgers will sign plenty of talent to win another 100 or more games in 2024. But LAD falls apart in the postseason. Some teams just don’t have what it takes to win in the playoffs and the Dodgers are one of those teams.

The reason could be because, like the New York Yankees, the chemistry isn’t there. Both the Dodgers and the Yankees have regular season chemistry. They don’t boast postseason chemistry.

The Astros have the talent but Dusty Baker retired. Baker was the perfect manager for this team. Also, the Rangers are one of the older MLB squads. Justin Verlander is 40 and Jose Abreu is 33. The young talent doesn’t seem to be present and the Mariners and Rangers are good. Winning the AL West is going to be tough.
