The Dodgers are currently the betting favorite to win the World Series, so as you can assume that also means they are the betting favorite to win the NLCS against the Braves.

According to the DraftKings Sportsbook, the Dodgers are -210 to win the series against Atlanta. For those unfamiliar with betting, that means you’d have to bet $210 in order to win $100, plus your money back.

Hopefully this makes sense:

  • If you bet $420, you would win $200, plus you’d get your $420 back. So, if the Dodgers advance to the World Series you’d collect $620 in total. Math!

If you are feeling that Atlanta can win the series, you can get great value at +175. This means that if you bet $100, you’d win $175, plus your $100 back. So, you’d collect..........?

That’s right, $275! See, it’s pretty easy.

If you want a chance to win even more money, you can bet on the exact series outcome. The lowest odds are the Dodgers winning the series in five games at +360. The highest odds are the Braves sweeping the series at +2500.
