The 2023 Major League Baseball season is right around the corner, and with the majority of offseason moves in the book and spring training on the horizon, future odds are starting to take shape.
In terms of World Series odds, the defending champion Houston Astros (+600) are the favorites, according to FanDuel as of Feb. 10.
Right behind Houston are the New York Yankees (+650), Los Angeles Dodgers (+750) and New York Mets (+750). Those four are the only teams with odds better than 10/1.
At that number, you’ll find both the San Diego Padres – fresh off an extremely busy offseason – and the champions from two years ago, the Atlanta Braves.
The defending National League champion Philadelphia Phillies come in at 14/1 while the Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners come in right behind at 15/1 and 16/1, respectively.
Every other team listed is 25/1 or longer.
2023 World Series Favorites
Houston Astros (+600)
The fact that the Astros are favored despite a relatively quiet offseason is a testament to the depth they display year after year.
Gone is reigning Cy Young winner Justin Verlander, and with him out the door are key contributors such as Yuli Gurriel, Christian Vazquez, Trey Mancini and Aledmys Diaz.
The team brought back Michael Brantley and Rafael Montero on new contracts, and the one big splash it made was signing former MVP first baseman Jose Abreu to replace Gurriel.

New York Yankees (+650)
The biggest thing the Yankees could do and did do this offseason was bringing back American League home run champ and MVP Aaron Judge. That is obviously a very big deal, and the Yankees piggybacked off that with a big rotation addition, too, in signing Carlos Rodon to a free-agent deal.
Those two signings – as well as bringing back Anthony Rizzo – about sum up the Yankees’ offseason. The only other notable player added to the roster was Tommy Kahnle while the Yankees waved goodbye to a host of free agents, including Andrew Benintendi, Jameson Taillon, Aroldis Chapman and Matt Carpenter.
Los Angeles Dodgers (+750)
Being listed third is an odd place for the Dodgers, who routinely have found themselves atop the odds board over the last several years.
It was a quiet offseason in Los Angeles, one marked more by the subtractions from the roster than the additions. The only notable players added to the roster are Noah Syndergaard and J.D. Martinez, both of whom would’ve made a much bigger impact about five years ago.
On the flip side, a number of big names are now gone, including longtime mainstays Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner, in addition to Trea Turner, Tyler Anderson, Craig Kimbrel and Andrew Heaney.
The Dodgers still have plenty of star power, of course, which is why they remain among the favorites.
New York Mets (+750)
The Mets had an incredibly active offseason, and that doesn’t even include their flirtation with Carlos Correa, who ultimately ended up back with the Minnesota Twins after a whirlwind couple of weeks.
Any time a team loses a pitcher of Jacob deGrom’s stature, it’s obviously going to be a serious blow, but the Mets went out and replaced a perennial Cy Young candidate with the reigning AL Cy Young winner in Justin Verlander.
The Mets’ spending didn’t end there, as they shelled out a boatload of cash for the likes of Jose Quintana, David Robertson, Kodai Senga and more.
New York had a disappointing end to its 2022 season but is reloaded and ready to compete in the still-very-competitive National League East.
