MLB 2021 odds: Nationals' chances of winning NL East, World Series originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

As the baseball calendar nears June and squads start to find their groove in the summer months, it’s time to start thinking about the MLB teams who might be making a run for the playoffs this fall and who might be sellers at the 2021 trade deadline.

The Washington Nationals currently sit at the bottom of the NL East -- five games back from the leading New York Mets -- with a record of 16-22. Can Trea Turner keep up his dominant campaign, and help the Nationals get back on track in the last three quarters of the 2021 season?

Who has the best odds to win the 2021 World Series?

The Dodgers, reigning World Series champions, currently sit as the favorite to take the title again in 2021. The Dodgers started the season on a tear, but hit a rough patch as the injury bug has not been kind. The New York Yankees, San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox and New York Mets also are favored to be in the running to take home a championship ring this season.
