There’s no denying that Canada has the most passionate MLB fanbase outside of the United States. Millions of Canadians watch the MLB season every year, many of which are rooting for their home country team, the Toronto Blue Jays.
Unfortunately, the Blue Jays have failed to find much success this season, but that doesn’t mean those that want to bet on the MLB playoffs in Canada are out of options. Many online sportsbooks in Canada are offering odds for the rest of the season, so let’s take a look at a few teams favored to win the World Series.

It’s hard to argue against the Los Angeles Dodgers being the best team in the MLB right now. They possess the best record at 96-53, and hold one of the most well-rounded lineups with top pitchers and batters.
Dodgers’ last five games
- Nationals: loss
- Nationals: win
- Nationals: win
- Giants: win
- Giants: win
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to see Bet365 Sportsbook list the Dodgers as the World Series betting favorites heading into the playoffs with odds of 3/1. They’ve looked solid in the current series with the Nationals, and will likely advance far into the postseason.
Many MLB betting experts were quick to point out LA’s flaws in the most recent 1-7 loss to the Nationals. Nevertheless, they’re up 2-1 in the series and may very well face Washington later on in the season.
Cleveland Indians: 17/4
The city of Cleveland has turned into one of the most successful sports cities in the US in the past few years, and have a real shot at earning a World Series championship if the Indians can continue the success they’ve found during the regular season.
The Indians looked great in 2016 and nearly won the World Series before losing the final game to the Cubs. 2017 looks to be the year they right that wrong, as they hold the best record in the American League at 93-57 with nine victories in their past ten games. thanks in part to elite pitchers like Corey Kluber and great hitters like Francisco Lindor.
Those looking to bet on the MLB playoffs in Canada this year are likely to find the Indians as the betting favorites in nearly every game they play. The Indians’ odds to win the World Series in 2017 are set at 17/4.

This American League team has emerged as a serious championship betting favorite during the regular season and holds odds of 5/1 to make Canadian gambling news with the World Series win, according to Bet365 Sportsbook.
