Dodgers July Has Oddsmakers Giving Them a Boost for October

The Dodgers made two impact acquistions in the final two weeks of July.

First came the addition of shortstop Manny Machado from Baltimore on July 18.

Then came the acquisition of second baseman Brian Dozier shortly before Tuesday's non-waiver trading deadline.

With those additions in mind, the oddsmakers made the Dodgers co-favorites with the Astros to win the World Series. The Astros beat the Dodgers in seven games in the World Series last October.

The Dodgers had been No. 2 in the odds at the start of July, according to www.Bovada.lv.

The Dodgers went from fifth with odds of 17-to-2 at the start of July to 9-to-2. The Astros went from 15-to-4 to open July to 9-to-2. The Dodgers moved ahead of the Red Sox, Yankees and Cubs.

The Rockies are 12th at 22-to-1, but that's a major improvement from 60-to-1 at the start of July.
