MLB odds, predictions: Orioles bolster World Series chances with Corbin Burnes trade
The Baltimore Orioles boosted their 2024 prospects on Thursday with a trade for Brewers ace Corbin Burnes.
The move, which sent minor leaguers D.L. Hall and Joey Ortiz to Milwaukee, boosted the Orioles World Series title odds to +1200, on par with the defending champion Texas Rangers for the fifth-best World Series odds behind the Dodgers (+350), Braves (+500), Astros (+800) and Yankees (+900) at FanDuel Sportsbook.
Baltimore had been +1900 to win it all before the trade.
They also nearly halved their odds to win the American League pennant, going from +900 pre-Burnes to +550.
The Burnes addition also upped their preseason win total from 88.5 to 91.5, which trails only the Yankees (93.5) and Astros (92.5) in the AL.
The Orioles are now right on the heels of the Yankees (+120) in terms of their AL East chances, sitting at +240.
Baltimore is coming off a 101-win, AL-East winning season with one of the youngest rosters in baseball.
