Dodgers Have Best Odds in National League to Make World Series in 2023
Your Los Angeles Dodgers are on the eve of their 2023 season opener. They will face their division rival Arizona Diamondbacks who will look to play spoiler for reigning NL West champions. However, before we get into the marathon of the 162-game season, the MLB on Fox crew already have the odds of which team will represent their respective league.
Despite their quiet offseason, the Dodgers remain with the best odds to make the World Series out of the NL.
The Boys in Blue have the best odds to make it out of the NL with +375. Following the Dodgers are 2021 champions Atlanta Braves at +380, New York Mets at +500, division rivals San Diego Padres at +500, and last year’s NL representatives Philadephia Phillies at +750. The National League has a ton of teams with huge aspirations in 2023, and it will be a dogfight to make it out of there.
The defending champion Houston Astros have the best odds of coming out of the AL with +280. I know Dodger fans are clamoring for a rematch with them. A lot of bad blood between the fan bases is still alive, and it would be an incredible series to witness.
The Dodgers remain the team to beat in the National League, and deservedly so. They still have the superstars in the lineup, the rotation, coaching, and the front office to compete against the best of them. This Dodgers team is nowhere near where they could be, and as a fan, that has to excite you.
We’ll see how this season pans out, but one thing is for sure; LA will be in the thick of things in October.
Whoever originally said that is dead wrong. We won’t even make it to the postseason this year.
