The team at the top of that futures odds list is the Detroit Tigers at +490 to win a world title. The Tigers opened their season this past Monday with a 4-3 victory over Kansas City as 149 home favorites on BetAnySports’ closing moneyline. They will be back in action against the Royals this Wednesday afternoon as 186 favorites with last season’s AL Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer on the mound going against left-hander Jason Vargas.

Philadelphia and Texas staged the first inter-league matchup of the season with the Phillies winning the opener 14-10 in a wild slugfest. In a much more subdued day at the plate, the Rangers evened things up with Tuesday’s 3-2 win as 136 home favorites.
