Although one week can't do too much changing in terms of odds to win the MLB World Series, there have still been some changes in numbers heading into weeks eight. Which teams are favorites to take home the trophy at the end of the year?

Is your team the favorite to win it all? Check it out here.

30. Houston Astros

The Astros are trending upward after winning six of their last 10 games, but they still haven't climbed out of the gutter in terms of World Series odds. Will it happen this year? Unlikely, but they have the young pieces in place for a run in a few years.

Odds: 1000/1

29. Chicago Cubs (15-27)

Going 2-4 in a week won't exactly improve your odds to win a World Series and the Cubs are quickly finding that out. They have the worst record in baseball and there seems to be no shortage of the phrase "That's so Cubs" used around the league in an unfortunate situation.

Odds: 1000/1

28. Arizona Diamondbacks (18-28)

A winning record of 3-2 in week seven was enough to, well, keep the Diamondbacks in the same spot with the exact same odds. This team isn't as poor as their record indicates, however, as they could seriously make a playoff run.

Odds: 300/1

27. Minnesota Twins (21-21)

The Twins continue to get absolutely no respect from Vegas, gathering the fourth-worst odds in all of baseball to win it all despite a .500 record. They are playing in the division with the best team in the league, but they still have a respectable record.

Odds: 150/1

26. San Diego Padres (21-24)

The Padres are never given too much of a chance to win it all and this year will be no different. They did move up a bit in the odds department, but Vegas seems to think they have next to no shot of winning it all.

Odds: 100/1

25. New York Mets (20-23)

When you have guys like David Wright and Curtis Granderson on your team, you would think that you would be one of the better teams out there, but that hasn't been the case. Granderson is struggling in his first year with the Mets and it's not helping things with the team's overall record.

Odds: 100/1

24. Miami Marlins (23-22)

Losing Jose Fernandez for the season -- and until next May at least -- was a huge blow for the surprising Marlins. Although he only pitched every fifth day, you can tell this team has been demoralized by he news, losing seven of its last 10 games.

Odds: 100/1

23. Pittsburgh Pirates (18-25)

It's crazy to think that the Pittsburgh Pirates were one of the best teams in baseball a season ago because of their major struggles right now. Seven games under .500 won't get you too much respect in baseball -- nor from Vegas.

Odds: 75/1

22. Philadelphia Phillies (19-22)

Philadelphia is in last place in a very tightly-contested NL East and it's obvious that they are struggling due to a negative 20-something run differential. You aren't going to impress Vegas -- or baseball -- if you can't produce a positive run differential.

Odds: 75/1

21. Chicago White Sox (22-24)

Jose Abreu is leading the league in home runs and has been one of the best rookies in recent memory. It's too bad that he will be on the disabled list for a while as he's in a walking boot. That loss puts a lot of pressure on the aging Paul Konerko to produce in his absence. Time to see the old Konerko come back to life.

Odds: 75/1

20. Cleveland Indians (20-25)

The Indians have been the most lifeless team in the AL Central -- or so it seems. They are 9.5 games out of first and it took a walk-off home run against the first-place Tigers to dwindle that number under 10 games.

Odds: 66/1

19. Seattle Mariners (21-22)

Adding Robinson Cano in the offseason wasn't expected to make the Mariners World Series contenders -- and it's really not paying off too noticeably. He's getting the job done, leading the team in batting average and getting the usually-poor Mariners back up near the .500 mark.

Odds: 40/1

18. Cincinnati Reds (20-23)

With some stars in the lineup and pitching rotation, the Reds have the pieces that it takes to make a solid push toward the playoffs. If Johnny Cueto keeps pitching the way he is, this team will be hard to beat -- every fifth day at least.

Odds: 40/1

17. Tampa Bay Rays (19-26)

Tampa Bay is definitely not living up to expectations this season in the AL East. Many predicted the Rays to win the division, but they have gotten off to a lethargic start, winning just 19 games through the first 45 of the season.

Odds: 33/1

16. Kansas City Royals (22-22)

The Royals are that young team in baseball that everyone seems to root for every season, but they never truly get the job done. Could this be the year Kansas City finally overcomes the obstacles to win the AL Central?

Odds: 33/1

15. Colorado Rockies (25-20)

15. Colorado Rockies (25-20)

Colorado easily has the best offense in baseball and it seems like everyone in the lineup is hitting over .300 -- or at least close to it. Colorado knows how to hit, but will its pitching hold it back from winning the World Series?

Odds: 33/1

14. Toronto Blue Jays (23-22)

14. Toronto Blue Jays (23-22)

Would you believe me if I told you that the Blue Jays were the only team in the AL East to have a positive run differential? It's hard to believe a division with the reigning World Series champs, the Yankees and two of the best young teams in baseball produces just one team with a positive run differential.

Odds: 28/1

13. Baltimore Orioles (22-20)

Getting Manny Machado back from the DL was a big deal for the Orioles as their lineup is as close to complete as any in the league. It's time to get Chris David completely healthy and back on track and this team will be scary.

Odds: 25/1

12. Texas Rangers (21-23)

The Prince Fielder deal in the offseason has yet to truly pay off for the Rangers as he's struggling to find his stroke of power and the team is struggling to find consistency. According to ESPN, the Rangers have just an 8.6 percent chance of making the playoffs.

Odds: 22/1

11. Boston Red Sox (20-23)

Boston was just swept at home for the first time in recent memory by the Detroit Tigers this past weekend, going just 1-5 in week seven. With a poor week like that, there's no question as to why they dropped from the eighth-best odds to win it all to the 11th-best.

Odds: 16/1

10. New York Yankees (23-20)

The Yankees had somewhat of the opposite type of week than the rival Red Sox did. New York went 4-2 in week seven and remained at the No. 10 spot on the list of odds. If Mark Teixeira can get back to his old ways before his injury, the Yankees will be quite alright.

Odds: 14/1

9. Milwaukee Brewers (27-18)

Not many people are buying into the Brewers just yet -- even though they do have the second-best record in the National League. Ryan Braun and Carlos Gomez are leading the way for this team as Milwaukee is looking to make an almost worst-to-first type of story in 2014.

Odds: 14/1

8. Los Angeles Angels (24-20)

8. Los Angeles Angels (24-20)

The Angels have improved their odds noticeably in week seven, winning five of seven games and improving their record to 24-20. Los Angeles is one of the hottest teams in baseball right not -- despite the fact that Mike Trout is struggling mightily.

Odds: 14/1

7. Atlanta Braves (24-19)

7. Atlanta Braves (24-19)

Atlanta hasn't been overly-impressive this season, but the Braves are starting to look like a playoff-worthy team. Don't be surprised if Atlanta makes a deep run in the playoffs because it has yet to hit its offensive stride.

Odds: 14/1

6. Washington Nationals (23-21)

The Nationals lost Bryce Harper not too long ago and it's starting to show in their overall play. Washington has won just four games in its last 10 games and the Nationals are not looking all too impressive without the young slugger.

Odds: 10/1

5. St. Louis Cardinals (23-21)

It's weird to see the Cardinals chasing after another team in the NL Central, but thanks to the Brewers' hot start, St. Louis is in second place and fighting to keep up. Vegas, however, gives them the best chance n the division to win it all.

Odds: 10/1

4. San Francisco Giants (28-17)

Although the Giants don't even have the best odds, according to Vegas, to win the World Series in their own division, they do have the second-best odds in the National League. San Francisco is back to prove that their poor record in 2013 was a fluke.

Odds: 10/1

3. Oakland Athletics (28-16)

3. Oakland Athletics (28-16)

Oakland has a run differential of nearly 100 and we are barely two-thirds of the way through the month of May -- that's almost unheard of. Oakland seems to be the most well-rounded team in the league and facing them in the playoffs is a pretty scary thought.

Odds: 9/1

2. Los Angeles Dodgers (23-22)

2. Los Angeles Dodgers (23-22)

Yes, here we are with the most praised 23-22 team in recent memory. The Dodgers are No. 2 on this list purely because of preseason expectations as well as pure talent on the roster. Los Angeles should win the National League, and that's why their odds are so high for a team who is barely over the .500 mark.

Odds: 8/1

1. Detroit Tigers (27-13)

Detroit Tigers

1. Detroit Tigers (27-13)

Alright, folks, it's time to put your money on the Tigers to win it all. Kidding, but in all seriousness, this team is frightening to go up against. With the second-best run differential in baseball and the best record in the league to go along with the biggest division lead out there, this team will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming months.

Odds: 6/1
