Takeaways:

-- Dodgers star shortstop Trea Turner is an impending free agent. Keeping Los Angeles atop the futures market is an indication that even if Turner signs elsewhere, Dodgers ownership will continue to be all-in from a financial standpoint to a greater degree than any other team in all of baseball.

-- The Astros really let Carlos Correa walk last year knowing they had Jeremy Peña in their pipeline. The same is true for George Springer and Kyle Tucker. That’s just an embarrassment of riches for the most successful team in baseball over the last half-decade.

-- The Yankees at +750 seems like an assumption that even if they lose Aaron Judge in free agency, money will be spent to replace the star outfielder and expected AL MVP winner. No book is ever going to give out value on the Yankees, even if their outlook is murky at best.

-- The Mariners are at +1500, tied for seventh-best odds overall and tied for third in the American League. Seattle made the playoffs as a Wild Card team and ousted the Blue Jays in the Wild Card Round. Odds this low indicates the betting market is bullish on Seattle’s young core as well as the potential to add a significant bat this offseason in free agency.

-- Cleveland at +2500 marks the worst World Series odds for a divisional favorite. While the Guardians have a standout pitching staff, led by Triston McKenzie and Shane Bieber, that has never been an ownership group to spend big in free agency.

-- The Red Sox at +4000 indicates there are just too many holes for Boston to fill in one offseason, not to mention Xander Bogaerts is a free agent and may be on his way out.

-- It was rumored during the MLB postseason that the Giants wouldn’t be outbid in their pursuit of Aaron Judge. Their +5000 odds don’t reflect an expected Judge signing, though playing in the same division as the Dodgers and Padres doesn’t help their chances.

-- It’s no surprise to see the Nationals with the longest odds. They’re in full rebuild mode after trading away Juan Soto at the deadline last season.
