We're more than two months into the MLB season and the Texas Rangers are holding the second best record in all of baseball at 41-22.
We've seen enough from them to know that they're truly for real and not just pretenders who got off to a hot start. With that being said, the oddsmakers still don't totally trust them. Yet.
That's why if all need to collectively bet on the Rangers to win the World Series before the oddsmakers start to understand how great this team is. Let's take a look at the latest odds to in the Fall Classic.
World Series odds
Rangers World Series odds
Despite having the second best record in baseball the Rangers are set at just +1700 (17/1) to win the World Series, meaning a $100 bet on them will win you $1,700 if they're able to achieve the feat.
That's long odds than three other teams in the American League and five other teams in the Majors. That's disrespectful to what the Rangers have done so far this season.
They lead all baseball in run differential by a fairly wide margin, coming in at +153 while the next best team is the Rays at +136.
They're also first in batting average (.275), third in OPS (.801), and second in starting pitcher ERA (3.21). That certainly doesn't sound like the sixth best team in baseball to me.
So, before oddsmakers catch on to just how good this Rangers team is, join me in betting on them to win the 2023 World Series.
