2016 MLB World Series Odds

2016 MLB Preview 2016 All Star Game Odds World Baseball Classic Betting MLB Odds

World Series odds for 2016 are down to just nine teams viable in the title chase. These latest World Series odds have been presented in a report from Baseball Prospectus, with the site stating that only nine teams have a real chance to win the Fall Classic. While fans of the other 21 franchises might disagree, the expected winning percentages of all 32 clubs tell a succinct story. So which teams made the cut and which ones are left scrambling to add pieces before the MLB trade deadline in July?

The World Series (a.k.a. October Classic, The Series) first appeared in 1903 in a match between the Boston Americans (now Red Sox) from the American League and the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. The Sox won the series five games to three, giving credibility to the American League (The American League was a newly founded division). The following year, the Red Sox once more made the Series but opponents New York Giants refused to play on grounds that the American League was inferior and that there were no formalized rules for the championship. Quick to respond, the MLB instituted the new World Series in 1905 as a permanent fixture. The leagues would meet annually in a series of games for the professional baseball championship of the world.

The Fall Classic boasts an incredible history and for decades was the only time that the American League ever squared off against the National League. Of course that has changed now with inter-league play, but the World Series is still a truly unique sporting event that every fan should experience at least once. If this year’s World Series is anything like the regular season, then we are in for another instant classic.

For as much as some fans and media like to say that only big market teams have a chance to win the World Series, the results on the field in recent years have proven otherwise. Over the past decade, eight different teams have won the World Series, and although the Yankees and Red Sox are among those, so are the San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
