The halfway point of the MLB season is still a few weeks away but as of now it looks like the Yankees are the favorite to win the World Series this year.

According to the story from Sports Illustrated, the Yankees along with their division rivals, the Red Sox are among the contenders to win it all in October.

The odds now favor the Yankees who are +400 favorites according to oddshark.com. The defending champion Houston Astros are just behind at +450.

The Red Sox are at +600 and will probably be right there with the Yankees through out the rest of the season. The American League East winner will get the division and the loser the wild card.

Other favorites include three National League teams, Washington at +700, Chicago Cubs at +950 and their N.L. Central foe, Milwaukee at +1100.

A lot can happen between now and October so we see if any of these teams make it or if we see a surprise team jump in as a favorite like the Seattle Mariners.

Who do you have winning it all in October? I think Houston has a great chance to repeat.

Next big event for Major League Baseball is the All Star Game which will be played in Washington on July 17th.
