Every Team's 2014 World Series Odds: Week 10

With 10 weeks of the MLB regular season already in the books, top teams are starting to solidify their spot atop the standings and make a serious push at a World Series title -- or even a playoff berth at the very least.

The World Series odds have shaken up a bit since last week. Who tops the list of odds after week nine?

30. Houston Astros (25-34)

Although the Astros are seemingly on a tear lately, Vegas is giving them absolutely no love. They might be in the bottom half of the entire league in terms of record, but the Astros have won eight of their last 10 games.

Odds: 500/1

29. Chicago Cubs (21-34)

The Cubs have the worst record in baseball -- and no one is really all too surprised. Chicago has posted nearly a .500 record at home, but going 10-21 on the road so far this season has held the club back tremendously.

Odds: 300/1

28. Arizona Diamondbacks (24-36)

Is Arizona ever going to climb out of the cellar in the NL West and prove that it is one of the better teams in baseball? It's starting to look like a big fat 'no' at this point.

Odds: 300/1

27. Philadelphia Phillies (24-32)

If the Phillies' veteran talent was just a bit younger and playing like they did in their younger years, this team could potentially be a threat. However, they just seem too old to keep up with the rest of baseball.

Odds: 250/1

26. New York Mets (28-30)

The Mets are riding somewhat of a hot streak, winning seven of their last 10 games and sitting just 3.5 games out of first place. Is this team going to keep being pesky or eventually just drift away into irrelevance?

Odds: 200/1

25. Minnesota Twins (27-29)

Minnesota is a somewhat-surprising team this season. The Twins weren't even expected to be in a divisional race all season long, but they are just two games under .500 and only 5.0 games out of first place in the AL Central.

Odds: 200/1

24. Chicago White Sox (30-30)

I'm kind of scratching my head on this one. Chicago is sitting at .500 and just 4.0 games out of first place in the AL Central -- second place -- yet it is getting no respect from Vegas. If there was any team in the division with a chance to dethrone the Tigers, I feel like it would be the White Sox.

Odds: 120/1

23. San Diego Padres (26-33)

San Diego plays in a pitcher-friendly ballpark, hence why the offense is so bad. OK, well that and the fact that they have no big hitter in the lineup outside of possibly Seth Smith. Yeah, this team isn't going anywhere this season.

Odds: 100/1

22. Miami Marlins (30-28)

I will admit, Miami is a pretty exciting team for one that garners no attention even from its own fans. The Marlins are two games above .500, which is a surprise, and they have some young key pieces that could spell a playoff berth in the next couple of years.

Odds: 100/1

21. Cleveland Indians (29-30)

Cleveland made a playoff run in 2013 in Terry Francona's first season as manager, but 2014 hasn't quite brought the same luck yet. Although they are just one game under .500 and 4.5 games out of first place, the Indians have looked a bit lifeless before their five-game win streak recently.

Odds: 60/1

20. Pittsburgh Pirates (28-30)

Pittsburgh is another team that rose in the ranks of the underdogs last season and made a playoff appearance. It didn't end quite as they expected, but the Pirates have some key pieces in place for another run this season -- if they can put a solid streak together.

Odds: 60/1

19. Kansas City Royals (28-30)

Kansas City surprisingly has the second-best odds of any AL Central team to win the World Series in 2014. This is surprising because the Royals seem to be near the bottom of the divisional standings ever season. Could this be the year that changes?

Odds: 60/1

18. Cincinnati Reds (27-29)

Cincinnati is one of those teams that could sneak up on the opposition and steal a playoff berth from another contender. The Reds are getting healthy at the right time and they will be looking to put something together heading into the dog days of summer.

Odds: 60/1

17. Seattle Mariners (30-28)

Adding Robinson Cano has made a pretty solid difference with the Mariners as Seattle ranks 11th in the entire league in runs scored and it looks like the offense is no longer a complete joke.

Odds: 60/1

16. Colorado Rockies (28-29)

The Rockies were once one of the hottest teams in the league, but they have fallen off the map a bit in recent weeks. In fact, they have gone just 2-8 in their last 10 games and Vegas is starting to take notice.

Odds: 45/1

15. Texas Rangers (29-29)

15. Texas Rangers (29-29)

It's hard to say if the Texas Rangers will recover from the loss of big slugger Prince Fielder for the rest of the season. Couple that with the loss of Nelson Cruz to free agency this past offseason and you have an offense with little power.

Odds: 35/1

14. Tampa Bay Rays (23-36)

14. Tampa Bay Rays (23-36)

Somehow, some way the Tampa Bay Rays find themselves in the top half of the World Series odds for all teams in MLB. With the second-worst record in baseball, the Rays are still getting respect from Vegas for being a preseason favorite.

Odds: 35/1

13. Milwaukee Brewers (35-24)

13. Milwaukee Brewers (35-24)

On the opposite end of the spectrum from the Rays, the Brewers are getting absolutely no love from Vegas. With the third-best record in baseball, it seems like people are weary of picking a team that was so bad last season. I guess that's the kind of difference Ryan Braun makes.

Odds: 25/1

12. Baltimore Orioles (29-27)

Adding Nelson Cruz in the offseason is starting to look like the smartest bargain of any. Cruz is hitting .313 with 21 homers and 55 RBI through 56 games this season and he might bring home an MVP trophy if the Orioles make the playoffs.

Odds: 25/1

11. Boston Red Sox (27-31)

11. Boston Red Sox (27-31)

Boston may have won the World Series a season ago, but that doesn't exactly mean it is the favorite to win it all again in 2014. In fact, the Red Sox have just the 11th-best odds to win it all this season -- it might have something to do with a slow start that included a 10-game losing streak.

Odds: 18/1

10. Toronto Blue Jays (35-24)

10. Toronto Blue Jays (35-24)

Toronto seems to be the hottest team in baseball right now when it comes to its scorching bats. The Blue Jays' have the most dangerous lumber in the league right now as the top offense, including the most homers in the league -- 16 of which came from Edwin Encarnacion in the month of May alone.

Odds: 18/1

9. New York Yankees (29-28)

9. New York Yankees (29-28)

The Yankees are always going to be in the top 10 on a list like this because, well, they're the Yankees. New York is known for winning titles and the 2014 season might not be the year the Yankees win another, but there are enough veterans on this squad to where it is very possible.

Odds: 18/1

8. Los Angeles Angels (30-27)

Los Angeles is looking to put its poor performance in 2013 behind. The Angels will be looking to get Mike Trout and Josh Hamilton completely healthy and producing at 100 percent before they can even hope for a playoff berth.

Odds: 17/1

7. Washington Nationals (28-28)

7. Washington Nationals (28-28)

How good are the Washington Nationals without Bryce Harper? To be honest, Washington is a very average team without the services of its best young slugger. The Nationals will hope to get him back in time for a serious playoff push.

Odds: 15/1

6. Atlanta Braves (31-26)

6. Atlanta Braves (31-26)

Atlanta seems to be that one division leader that no one has been talking about. Sure, the Braves' offense has been quite lethargic this season, but with the amount of talent in the lineup, there is no way that can last the entire season.

Odds: 12/1

5. St. Louis Cardinals (30-29)

5. St. Louis Cardinals (30-29)

St. Louis is that team that is consistently solid season after season -- and it makes some people very angry and frustrated. You can almost guarantee the Cardinals will at least get a wild card berth in 2014 -- and every other season it seems.

Odds: 9/1

4. Oakland Athletics (36-22)

4. Oakland Athletics (36-22)

Oakland has the best run differential in baseball -- meaning it is the most well-rounded team in the league. With a solid pitching staff and a scary lineup, this could be the season the Athletics finally put everything together for a World Series run.

Odds: 8/1

3. San Francisco Giants (37-21)

The Giants are coming off a terrible season in 2013 to have the best record in the league after two months of play in 2014. Talk about a turnaround. Vegas is starting to take notice -- as is the rest of the league.

Odds: 7/1

2. Los Angeles Dodgers (31-29)

2. Los Angeles Dodgers (31-29)

The Dodgers have been everyone's favorite pick to win it all since the beginning of the season, so there's no question as to why they are No. 2 in overall odds. Will they live up to expectations or fall flat on their faces?

Odds: 7/1

1. Detroit Tigers (31-23)

1. Detroit Tigers (31-23)

Detroit is getting some serious love based on their success in the past few seasons as well as the returning veteran talent on the team. With a top-three of the pitching rotation like Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer and Anibal Sanchez, there is no way they can't make a deep run once again.

Odds: 11/2
