According to data released by SportsBetting.ag on Tuesday, the Yankees are the most wagered on team in Major League Baseball.
"As far as daily and weekly handle, the Yankees dominate the action," SportsBetting.ag head linesman Robert Cooper said. "The Yankees are the Cowboys of baseball. They attract more bets and more money from the betting community than any other team, and it's not even close."
SportsBetting.ag provided data for the three teams with the largest amount of bets and largest amount of money wagered on their World Series odds. The Yankees showed up on both lists, but they aren't the only team to do so.
Here's the World Series betting breakdown so far this season:
Teams with most bets taken:
1. New York Yankees
2. Philadelphia Phillies
3. Los Angeles Dodgers
Teams with most money wagered:
1. New York Yankees
2. Los Angeles Dodgers

As far as teams bettors have no interest in backing, the Blue Jays have the dubious distinction of showing up on both lists:
Teams with fewest bets taken:
1. Toronto Blue Jays
2. Arizona Diamondbacks
3. Pittsburgh Pirates
Teams with least money wagered:
1. Miami Marlins
2. Toronto Blue Jays
3. Detroit Tigers
