Major League Baseball is back! Here are your World Series betting odds

It's likely you haven't made any Major League Baseball future bets yet. For the past few months, nobody knew when or if the season would start.

The lockout ended on Thursday afternoon. MLB will have a 162-game season that begins with opening day on April 7. And now you can feel better placing some wagers on the season.

There's plenty of free-agent activity to be worked out in the next few days, and that will change the World Series odds at BetMGM. Though, if you have an inkling the team you like will sign Freddie Freeman, Trevor Story or another star, maybe now is the time to bet them to win a championship.
