MLB futures odds 2024: Top World Series predictions, win totals, best bets, picks by baseball expert

The St. Louis Cardinals finished in last place in the National League Central last year, sitting 21 games behind the first-place Brewers. St. Louis will try to go from worst to first in the division this season after bolstering its pitching staff in the offseason. The Cardinals also still have star sluggers Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado, but they are 32-1 longshots in the 2024 World Series odds. Should you back St. Louis with any of your 2024 MLB futures bets?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the +320 favorites (risk $100 to win $320) in the MLB futures odds, while three other teams are listed lower than 10-1 on the MLB odds board. Which 2024 World Series bets should you place before Opening Day arrives on March 28?

Top 2024 MLB futures bets

Some of Cimini’s top 2024 MLB futures advice: He says to stay away from the Atlanta Braves (+450) with your World Series bets. Atlanta won a major-league high 104 games last season, winning the NL East for the sixth consecutive year. The Braves have not been able to get past the NLDS in the postseason since their World Series victory in 2021, though, falling to the Phillies in four games in both 2022 and 2023.

Atlanta was held to two runs or fewer in all three of its losses to Philadelphia in last year’s NLDS, despite leading the MLB in multiple offensive categories during the regular season. It is going to be even more difficult for the Braves to make a World Series run this year, as the Dodgers have established themselves as the clear favorites to win the championship after adding stars Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto in the offseason. Cimini does not see any value in backing Atlanta due to the strength of the National League and the Braves’ recent postseason woes. See Cimini’s best MLB futures bets at SportsLine
