One month of the MLB regular season is already in the books and it's time to take a look at who the best teams from April and the first part of May have been.

Here is the updated list of World Series favorites -- in order of worst odds to best. Is your favorite team at the top of the list or closer to the bottom?

30. Houston Astros

This is the second consecutive year in which the Astros are the laughing stock of baseball. Houston isn't exactly quite as embarrassing as it was a year ago, but a World Series will most likely not happen for the worst team in baseball in 2014.

Odds: 1000/1

29. Chicago Cubs

There's a new saying these days that's sweeping baseball -- "That's so Cubs." Every time something bad or embarrassing happens to Chicago's favorite underdog, people spit out that phrase because, really, who's surprised anymore?

Odds: 500/1

28. Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have some solid pieces in place and added Mark Trumbo this offseason, but the Kirk Gibson-led squad has failed to put anything together.

Odds: 500/1

27. Minnesota Twins

Minnesota has been mediocre for a few years now -- which is pretty surprising from Ron Gardenhire's teams. They're hovering around .500 right now and are within striking distance of the first-place Tigers in the AL Central.

Odds: 125/1

26. San Diego Padres

San Diego has some solid pitching stars like Brian Cashner, but that hasn't kept it from a 15-19 start and the fourth-worst record in the National League.

Odds: 100/1

25. Pittsburgh Pirates

One year after making the playoffs for the first time in decades, the up-and-coming Pittsburgh Pirates have struggled out of the gates. Since starting the season 6-3, the Pirates are 8-17 in their past 25 games.

Odds: 75/1

24. Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies haven't been a playoff contender for a few years now and it seems like they will be once again fighting to stay out of last place in the NL East.

Odds: 75/1

23. New York Mets

The Mets are battling it out with the Phillies for last place in the NL East and it looks like both will go down to the wire as the bottom two in the division. Will David Wright rise to the occasion and finally bring the Mets back to the playoffs? Vegas says no.

Odds: 75/1

22. Miami Marlins

The Marlins aren't half bad this season because of guys like slugger Giancarlo Stanton and young ace Jose Fernandez. It's too bad no one ever watches their games because they might be one of the more exciting young teams in the league.

Odds: 75/1

21. Cleveland Indians

Cleveland made an improbable playoff run a year ago thanks to the masterful managing job by Terry Francona. However, the Indians have begun the year off pitifully, posting a 14-19 record and sitting in last place in the AL Central.

Odds: 66/1

20. Chicago White Sox

The White Sox have one very scary offense that no pitcher in the league wants to face. However, they need more than just hitting if they want to be able to make a run at the Tigers in the AL Central -- just ask the pitching staff.

Odds: 66/1

19. Seattle Mariners

Adding Robinson Cano this offseason has helped the Mariners climb out of the cellar of the American League this season and into second place in the AL West. A tough division to win is within striking distance after a month for Seattle.

Odds: 40/1

18. Kansas City Royals

Kansas City seems to get some love every year as the team that could surprise everyone and take the AL Central title. However, their biggest problem is keeping up with the heavy hitters in the division and the American League. Starting the year 15-17 is exactly what they didn't want.

Odds: 40/1

17. Cincinnati Reds

The Cincinnati Reds seem to be that team that is scary all season long until they shoot themselves in the foot. If they can reach the playoffs this season, they will be a force to be reckoned with.

Odds: 40/1

16. Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays play in arguably the toughest division in baseball and they are still holding their own. While the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays seem to be the favorites to win the AL East every year, 2014 could be a different story.

Odds: 33/1

15. Colorado Rockies

Playing in a good hitters park has fared quite well for the Rockies thus far in 2014. Colorado has the second-most wins in all of baseball and guys like Charlie Blackmon are taking the league by storm with their bats.

Odds: 33/1

14. Baltimore Orioles

Baltimore has one scary lineup. If you have to face Manny Machado, Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones and Chris Davis during one game, you know that it's going to be a long day.

Odds: 25/1

13. Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays were one of the few favorites to contend for a World Series title before the season even began -- pretty high praise especially since they play in the same division as the reigning champs. Tampa Bay is a scary team and a pretty balanced one as well.

Odds: 20/1

12. Los Angeles Angels

The Angles have had to suffer the loss of a red-hot Josh Hamilton to begin the year, but Albert Pujols has carried the load and it looks like he's getting back to his old ways. If Pujols gets back to the way he played in St. Louis, the Angels will be really, really tough to beat.

Odds: 20/1

11. Texas Rangers

Texas does things big. We all know this. Acquiring Prince Fielder in the offseason was a big move as was adding Shin-Soo Choo. Both moves are starting to pay off as time goes on, but even when Fielder struggles, the Rangers are favorites to contend for a division title.

Odds: 16/1

10. Boston Red Sox

Boston has to be in the top-10 when it comes to World Series odds because, well, it won it all a year ago. Even though the Red Sox lost Jacoby Ellsbury and aren't quite the same team as they were in 2013, they will be there until the end.

Odds: 14/1

9. Atlanta Braves

Atlanta is everyone's dark-horse favorite to win the NL Pennant and contend for the 2014 title. If there is any team that knows how to win a division title and has been there before, it's the Braves.

Odds: 14/1

8. San Francisco Giants

The Giants have won two World Series titles since 2010 and, by default, have to be high up on this list despite a very mediocre 2013 season. San Francisco is as hot as any team in the league, posting the third-best record in all of baseball through the first month, or so.

Odds: 12/1

7. Oakland Athletics

Oakland is the favorite to win the tough NL West and it will be difficult seeing as every team in the division got noticeably better from a season ago -- except maybe the Astros. Solid pitching, consistent hitting and an overall dangerous squad will be fighting for a playoff spot in October.

Odds: 12/1

6. New York Yankees

The Yankees are always in the discussion as World Series favorites before the season begins and 2014 is no different. New York may have made the most offseason moves of any team to upgrade all positions, and it's starting to show that it's paying off.

Odds: 12/1

5. Milwaukee Brewers

Not many people saw this one coming. Going from worst to first is a pretty impressive feat, especially for a team that not many people gave a chance to compete in 2014. The Brewers have the most wins in baseball this season thus far and the second-best win percentage in the league.

Odds: 12/1

4. St. Louis Cardinals

What a surprise, right? The Cardinals are once again a top favorite to win the World Series -- it seems like this happens every single year. It will be an interesting battle to the end in the NL Central as the scorching Brewers will likely be fighting to hold off a consistent St. Louis squad.

Odds: 10/1

3. Washington Nationals

Washington has been a favorite since day one. However, the recent injury to Bryce Harper that will sideline him for quite some time may hurt the Nationals' chances. Good thing they have many more pieces to fill in for an injury of that magnitude.

Odds: 9/1

2. Los Angeles Dodgers

Prior to the season, the Dodgers were the No. 1 favorites to win the World Series and after one month, they are sitting in the No. 2 position. It's not often you see a team that's in third place in their division after a month rank No. 2 in World Series odds.

Odds: 8/1

1. Detroit Tigers

Detroit is the hottest team in baseball right now and it seems as if no team will be able to stop the Tigers. Winners of seven consecutive games and nine of 10, the Tigers have finally woken up offensively -- and that's very, very bad news for the rest of baseball.

Odds: 6/1
