World Series Bets – Who the Money is on at the All-Star Break
The 2023 Major League Baseball season is in full swing, with the first half of the season now in the books. With the second half just getting started, it's time to look at some of the top World Series bets courtesy of BetRivers Sportsbook.
The Cincinnati Reds and Arizona Diamondbacks are making some serious noise in their respective divisions and look like legitimate playoff teams, while The New York Mets and San Diego Padres rank among the most disappointing teams.
So, who is the money currently on?
World Series Bets for the Second Half
The Atlanta Braves are currently garnering the biggest support to win the World Series with 13% of the money on all World Series futures backing Atlanta.
Despite sluggish first half for both New York teams, fans appear unmoved, with the Yankees and Mets earning the second and third-highest betting totals.
