The Major League Baseball season is at the halfway point and the All-Star Game is just a couple of weeks away.

For many casual baseball bettors, it is time to reassess some of the wagers they made back in April.

For the sharp bettors, they will be looking at the MLB odds for the league's pennant futures, and making educated predictions.

The Best is in the West

With over 81 games played, the Colorado Rockies are turning heads. As of the beginning of July, the Los Angeles Dodgers lead futures MLB odds at +250.

But the most surprising team, Colorado, have the fourth best MLB odds at +650, despite siting six games out of first place in the West Division.

The National League West is incredibly competitive this season and it is the only NL division to have three teams over the .500-mark at the end of June.

The Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Rockies are all above .500.

Hitting and Pitching

The Rockies offense has been great this season. The team has scored the fourth most runs in the NL.

The team is second in hits and batting average, and the Rockies have the fifth best on base percentage in the league.

Even the team's typically battered pitching has improved. The team is third in pitching wins and tops in NL saves.

The starting rotation has been stellar and with the team playing in the Mile-High City, the pitching is possibly the best the club has ever had.

Closer Greg Holland has a league leading 25 saves, and the Rockies are solid late in games.

Great MLB Odds

Although the Rockies are behind the Dodgers and Diamondbacks in the West, the team is currently in line to make the playoffs as a Wild Card.

Colorado is six games ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the Wild Card race, but amazingly the Cubs sit ahead of Colorado in MLB odds to win the NL pennant at +275.

What about Arizona?

Like Colorado, Arizona has been playing great baseball in 2017.

Currently 2.5 games out of first in the West and leading the Wild Card, the Diamondbacks are a terrific option for bookies to wager on.

The Diamondbacks are also +650 and currently lead the season serious against the Dodgers five wins to three.

Arizona has big series against both Los Angeles and Colorado before the All-Star break; and the team could move into first in the West in early July.

Offense and Pitching

Arizona keeps improving and the offense has scored the second most runs in the NL. The Diamondbacks have the third most hits in the league, and second in RBI.

The team's pitching is playing just as well and the staff has posted the second lowest ERA (3.38) and second lowest WHIP (1.24) in the NL.


Both the Rockies and Diamondbacks offer pay per head agents great value for MLB odds futures.

Both teams are playing great baseball, and both continue to get better. The NL favorite Cubs are underperforming and the hunger of winning seems to be gone this season.
