The MLB season is underway and there’s plenty of positivity surrounding some of the current favorites to win the World Series.

A lot of action has already come in at the BetMGM online sportsbook and we’re going to break down what some of those numbers mean.

The Los Angeles Dodgers had a busy offseason and added to an already loaded squad, which shows why they are the odds on favorite right now.

The Dodgers are one of the few teams at the top that haven’t had their MLB odds shift as they started the year at +500 and still have that same price. They could very well have a slow start to the season and see that price drop, but even at +500, there’s reason to really like the value.

Walker Buehler’s team has the highest ticket and handle percentages right now at 11.4% and 15.7%.

The New York Mets are behind the Dodgers, which might be a surprise in terms of the action being placed on them.

The Mets have the second-highest ticket and handle percentages at 9.2% and 12.8%, which has them as one of the biggest liabilities. Their opening odds to win the World Series were +2000 and have already climbed to +1200.

Canada’s team, the Toronto Blue Jays, have the second-highest World Series odds at +800 and there is certainly some interest there as well.

The Jays opening odds saw them at +1600 and they’ve already doubled their odds since. They also have the third-highest ticket and handle percentages at 8.9% and 10.3%.

Eleven teams have eclipsed more than 2.5% on both their ticket and handle percentages which shows that even with the Dodgers as favorites, other clubs are still drawing intrigue early in the season.
