Atlanta is also one of the favorites to win the National League title and advance to the World Series. The Braves are tied with the St. Louis Cardinals at 8/1, as National League favorites.
The Detroit Tigers are listed as favorites to win the World Series at 13/2. The Braves got a taste of the Tigers’ power when they were swept earlier in the season at Comerica Park in Detroit.
