The World Series 2018 - Betting odds - Who will be the best team in baseball this year? You would have to go quite a ways back to find four teams as even as the four that are currently left in the World Series hunt.

According to Bet365, the difference between the Houston Astros (the current favourites to win the World Series) and the Milwaukee Brewers (the team with the worst odds to win) is only the slimmest of margins.

The Boston Red Sox, who finished with the best record in baseball this year, are not the current favourites to win. That distinction belongs to the Houston Astros, who are currently listed at 3.00 to win the World Series. Here are the complete odds, courtesy of Bet365:

Odds Subject to Change

Houston Astros, 3.00
Boston Red Sox, 3.30
LA Dodgers, 4.25
Milwaukee Brewers, 4.60

Here are the current odds to win the ALCS and NLCS:

LA Dodgers (1.64) vs Milwaukee Brewers (2.35)
Houston Astros (1.71) vs Boston Red Sox (2.20)


The Houston Astros absolutely brutalized the Cleveland Indians in the first round of the playoffs, which is why their odds have improved so much. Let's not forget that the Astros are the defending champions, and they certainly have the arms, batting and experience to win again.

The Brewers continue to surprise, as they easily advanced in their first round playoff series as well. The Brewers will likely give the Dodgers all that they can handle.

The Red Sox possess arguably the most talented roster in all of baseball, though they will be put to the test against the Astros.
