How does Vegas view the Phillies after their recent resurgence when it comes to their World Series odds?
The 2023 MLB season is well underway and things are finally brightening up in Philadelphia. After a torrid start to the season, the Phillies are on a roll and flashing the same levels of dominance displayed during last year’s emphatic run.
Phillies are still longshots to win the World Series
MLB World Series Odds: Phillies are underdogs at +2200
A sluggish start to the 2023 campaign initially resulted in a huge spike in Worlds Series futures prices. The Phillies were +1500 during the offseason and rose to +2800 following their disappointing start. However, things are coming together and the Phils are now +2200 to win it all this season.
The team is now comfortably over .500 and sits 8 games behind the Atlanta Braves, whom they just so happen to be hosting in a series this week. A few big performances and that lead could almost be cut in half. It should also be noted that the Braves are the current World Series favorites.
Right now it’s probably better to just have a flutter and place $5-$10 on this outcome rather than any kind of substantial wager. But if you just can’t get enough of ‘Dancing on my own’, then I guess your mind may have already been made up.
