MLB Odds: Dodgers Chase Illusive NL West Division Lead
With no shortage of momentum, the Los Angeles Dodgers will take on the San Diego Padres this weekend. If they’re lucky, they’ll get a chance to close the gap between themselves and the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants. Are L.A.’s 7/1 odds to win the World Series foretelling or just overly ambitious?

Neck and neck with the Giants in the sportsbook, the Dodgers trail by four games in the standings. That’s why the Dodgers will need to pad their win total against the struggling Padres while they can.
Los Angeles has long been a popular MLB betting option and while they’ve looked solid in 2014, the Giants have looked spectacular. As a result, the two clubs are tied for second in World Series futures. The Dodgers are +125 to win the division, slightly behind the San Francisco Giants (-200).
The Padres have made news of late. Former San Diego’s Tony Gwynn’s life is being celebrated after the legendary Hall of Famer passed away this week. The team hasn’t enjoyed much success on the field, and that bodes well for Dodgers fans hungry to advance in the standings.
