White Sox World Series Odds Grow Shorter With Busy Offseason

  • The early odds for the 2021 World Series are now available, with the Los Angeles Dodgers as the heavy favorites to repeat as champions at +400 odds.
  • They are followed by the New York Yankees (+700), Atlanta Braves (+900), San Diego Padres (+1200), and Tampa Bay Rays (+1200).
  • Following the additions of Lance Lynn and Adam Eaton, the Chicago White Sox are now at +1400 odds to win the World Series.

CHICAGO – There is still some time before the first pitch of the 2021 MLB season is thrown, but that hasn’t stopped bettors for looking into the futures odds for the World Series.

The betting season never truly stops, as futures odds are always available to bettors looking to peer into the crystal ball. Sportsbooks don’t hesitate to put up futures odds far in advance because after all, they would love to have more money in their books.

One of the biggest movers since the end of the 2020 season has been the Chicago White Sox, who currently find themselves with the sixth-best odds at +1400.

The White Sox were quick to make major moves, acquiring a top-10 starting arm in Lance Lynn and filling their hole in right field with Adam Eaton. These moves increased the White Sox odds from +1900 to +1400.

Some media members are already predicting that the White Sox are not done making moves, with some suggesting they could be looking to acquire George Springer.

A move for another top tier talent in Springer would certainly bolster the White Sox lineup in a way that would be instantly reflected on the oddsboard.

This means that there is no time like the present to lock in MLB futures bets on rising teams like the South Siders.

  • New York Yankees +700
  • Atlanta Braves +900

Aside from the White Sox, MLB fans paying attention to the odds for the 2021 World Series will also recognize some familiar faces as well as some rising contenders.

The current odds available via the major online sportsbooks have the reigning champion Los Angeles Dodgers as the strong favorite to repeat at +400 odds.

The Dodgers are followed by strong contenders in the New York Yankees at +700, and the team that nearly took them down in the NLCS, the Atlanta Braves at +900 odds, which rose from +700 after acquiring pitcher Charlie Morton from the Tampa Bay Rays.
