ARLINGTON, Texas – Adding starting pitchers Max Scherzer and Jordan Montgomery greatly improves the Texas Rangers odds to win the World Series. The Rangers +750 odds are the fourth-shortest overall and the second-shortest in the American League.

2023 MLB World Series Winner Odds

Atlanta Braves +310
Los Angeles Dodgers +475
Tampa Bay Rays +700
Texas Rangers +750
Houston Astros +850
Baltimore Orioles +1200

World Series odds indicate the Rangers would likely face either the Atlanta Braves or the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series. Both National League powerhouses are a major threat to Texas’s +750 world series odds, but legal MLB betting sites have odds for the Texas Rangers to win the American League.

2023 MLB American League Winner Odds

Tampa Bay Rays +310
Texas Rangers +350
Houston Astros +475
Baltimore Orioles +500
Toronto Blue Jays +700
Minnesota Twins +1100

The Rangers are surprisingly not the favorite to win the American League despite sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-game series ending on July 19. American League winner odds at +350 for a Rangers squad that leads the MLB in hits, RBI, batting average, and runs per game this season are valuable.

Odds to Win American League West

Texas Rangers -120
Houston Astros -105
Los Angeles Angels +1800
Seattle Mariners +1800
Oakland Athletics +250000

The Texas Rangers are the legal sports betting favorite to win the AL West with -120 odds. Losing two out of three games in a recent series to the Houston Astros can be attributed to pitching struggles, which the additions of Scherzer and Montgomery immediately improve.
