Pirates, Tigers Are MLB Division Leaders With Futures Value

  • MLB futures odds at Bovada haven’t moved much in favor of the two teams’ hot starts to the 2024 MLB season.

PITTSBURGH – The last two undefeated teams in baseball, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Detroit Tigers, are both underdogs to win their respective divisions. Betting odds to win the NL Central at USA online sportsbooks offer long +700 odds for the 5-0 Pirates to take home their first NL Central title ever.

National League Central Odds

  • Chicago Cubs +220
  • St. Louis Cardinals +240
  • Cincinnati Reds +350
  • Milwaukee Brewers +500
  • Pittsburgh Pirates +700

Betting on the Pirates has more to do with the division being bad than Pittsburgh being good. Divisional opponents like the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, Milwaukee Brewers, and Cincinnati Reds are competitive, but none are dominant.

The division is wide-open for a Pirates team that has plenty of young, talented players and savvy veterans contributing to their 5-0 start. Even if they got four wins from the Miami Marlins and one from the Washington Nationals, the Pirates +700 divisional odds at MLB online sportsbooks are worth a bet at that price.
