With the World Series still about five months away, which teams have the best odds to win it all and which teams have basically no shot, according to Vegas? It's time to start making your picks for the World Series and if your favorite team is near the bottom of this list, it's probably best you save your money for next year.

30. Philadelphia Phillies (25-36)

Losing eight of 10 games and falling to 7.5 games out of first place after flirting with the .500 mark is enough to make Vegas lose faith in you.

Odds: 500/1

29. Arizona Diamondbacks (28-38)

Arizona is still waiting for that surge to become the team that everyone expected it to be. Going 5-5 in the last 10 games means no ground has been made up in the chase for a .500 record, but also that mediocrity could be coming to an end.

Odds: 500/1

28. Houston Astros (29-36)

Houston has been climbing lately and a 6-4 record in its last 10 games is a step in the right direction. Young guys like George Springer and Jon Singleton are big reasons as to why this team will be a contender in a couple years.

Odds: 300/1

27. Minnesota Twins (29-33)

Minnesota would be losing ground in the AL Central if it weren't for the Tigers' major struggles. However, the Twins barely have a fighting shot to be there come October.

Odds: 300/1

26. Chicago Cubs (25-36)

Since their five-game win streak, the Cubs have lost two straight, but that doesn't mean things in the Windy City aren't looking up. Sadly, their World Series odds haven't improved.

Odds: 300/1

25. New York Mets (28-35)

The Mets have now lost six straight games after coming within one game of the coveted .500 mark. Now that they are free-falling, it's time to jump off the bandwagon.

Odds: 300/1

24. San Diego Padres (28-35)

San Diego has the worst offense in baseball and while defense and pitching seemingly win championships, not having an offense is killing this team.

Odds: 200/1

23. Tampa Bay Rays (24-41)

Tampa Bay is surprisingly the first team to 40 this season -- 40 losses. The Rays were a preseason favorite to win the World Series and it looks like that might have been a mistake.

Odds: 100/1

22. Chicago White Sox (32-33)

Chicago looked to be the Tigers' only threat in the AL Central before the Indians' recent surge. However, Chicago is getting healthy at the right time and it could be a fun race in the AL Central come September.

Odds: 100/1

21. Colorado Rockies (29-34)

Colorado is just one of those teams that can't seem to catch a break. Losing nine of their past 10 games, the Rockies are hoping that offense that lifted them to the top of their division earlier in the season comes back to play.

Odds: 100/1

20. Miami Marlins (33-30)

Miami is tied for the lead in the NL East, but it is still getting no love from Vegas. Some people think it's a fluke that the young Marlins are contending still, but another month of contention will prove the doubters wrong.

Odds: 100/1

19. Texas Rangers (31-33)

Losing Prince Fielder was a huge blow to this team and it looks like Adrian Beltre has stepped up big time in his absence. However, Texas will need more than just one single contributor moving forward.

Odds: 80/1

18. Cincinnati Reds (29-33)

Cincinnati, surprisingly, has one of the worst offenses in baseball this season and people close to the team are hoping that it heats up as the weather does the same.

Odds: 60/1

17. Pittsburgh Pirates (30-33)

The Pirates are creeping back into relevance this season after a very lethargic start to the season. If it weren't for the road record, Pittsburgh would probably be fighting for the Brewers and Cardinals for the top spot in the division.

Odds: 60/1

16. Baltimore Orioles (32-30)

Manny Machado's recent antics have overshadowed the success of the Orioles this season. Baltimore is in second place in one of the toughest divisions in baseball and it looks like it is just heating up.

Odds: 50/1

15. Kansas City Royals (31-32)

Kansas City might not have a realistic shot at winning a title, but it is getting closer and closer every season to becoming a playoff team. This could be the year the Royals steal a wild card berth.

Odds: 50/1

14. Cleveland Indians (33-31)

Look up the word "hot" in the dictionary and you will see the Cleveland Indians' logo. This team is on fire right now and it has climbed out of last place in the AL Central to just two games out of first place behind the seemingly-untouchable Tigers.

Odds: 35/1

13. Boston Red Sox (28-35)

13. Boston Red Sox (28-35)

The reigning World Series champs are not having the ideal season. Boston looked to be a favorite once again, but losing Jacoby Ellsbury proved to be a huge loss in the outfield and it's time to Big Papi to prove his leadership skills.

Odds: 30/1

12. Seattle Mariners (34-29)

12. Seattle Mariners (34-29)

The addition of Robinson Cano and the consistency of Felix Hernandez have proven to be the difference between an average Seattle team and one that is finally contending in the very tough AL West.

Odds: 30/1

11. New York Yankees (31-31)

11. New York Yankees (31-31)

New York will always have decent World Series odds because, well, it's the Yankees after all. New York hasn't been quite as good as expected this season, but don't be surprised if the team makes a late-season push for the playoffs to get Derek Jeter to his final postseason.

Odds: 25/1

10. Atlanta Braves (33-29)

10. Atlanta Braves (33-29)

Atlanta's offense has seemingly been asleep thus far and it's only a matter of time before the big bats in that lineup wake up and start putting the hurt on opponents. Pitching has been great, however.

Odds: 17/1

9. Los Angeles Angels (35-28)

A nice four-game win streak has picked the Angels' confidence right back up. Any team that has guys like Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton better be contending for a World Series crown.

Odds: 15/1

8. Milwaukee Brewers (38-26)

No one is talking about the Milwaukee Brewers because it seems like people are afraid to buy into a team that finished in fourth place in the NL Central and 23 games out of first place.

Odds: 14/1

7. Toronto Blue Jays (39-26)

The scariest bats in baseball are in Canada this season. Yes, you read that correctly, the Blue Jays have the best offense in baseball this season and they could be the second team to reach the 40-win mark.

Odds: 10/1

6. Los Angeles Dodgers (34-31)

When will the Dodgers start to heat up? That is the question everyone around baseball is asking as this team seems to be one that can make it to a World Series, but hasn't quite hit its stride this season thus far.

Odds: 10/1

5. Washington Nationals (33-29)

Losing Bryce Harper seemed to have put the Nationals down and out at first, but the team has rebounded quite nicely and they are now in a first-place tie with the Braves and Marlins in the NL East.

Odds: 10/1

4. St. Louis Cardinals (33-31)

Yes, another year with the Cardinals as a top-five World Series favorite. This team has been as consistent as any in the past decade.

Odds: 10/1

3. Detroit Tigers (33-27)

The Tigers have struggled mightily since starting the season 27-12 and with the best record in MLB. Since that time, they have gone just 6-15 and have one of the worst records in baseball for the past month, or so. Still one of the favorites to win it all, though.

Odds: 7/1

2. Oakland Athletics (39-25)

When you have the best run differential in baseball, by a long shot, you are destined to be a favorite to win the World Series. The Athletics seem to be putting a hurt on any and every team they play and this could be the year they finally put it all together for a title.

Odds: 6/1

1. San Francisco Giants (42-22)

It would be pretty cool to see a rivalry in the World Series like the Athletics and the Giants. San Francisco has been the only team to hit 40 wins this season thus far and they look to be heads and shoulders better than the rest of the National League.

Odds: 5/1
