Before the first pitch of the 2015 Major League Baseball season, a 22-year long playoff drought made the Toronto Blue Jays 25/1 longshots to win the World Series.

Now after seemingly taking control of the American League East with a 10-5 run this month, the Blue Jays continue to reign as the championship favorites at 7/2, increasing their chances from 4/1 just three weeks ago, according to the latest odds from sportsbook

Toronto pummeled the New York Yankees by winning three out of four in their showdown last week, building a 3.5-game lead in the division and creating some separation from the rest of the title contenders.

And evidently odds makers are banking on Toronto’s juggernaut lineup. Led by MVP candidate and third baseman Josh Donaldson, the Blue Jays field the best offense in all of baseball, ranking first in runs, slugging, and on-base percentage.

The defending AL champion Kansas City Royals, whose 86-60 record is only two games better than the Blue Jays’, have experienced a bit of a slide in the eyes of odds makers with a 6-10 mark in September. Manager Ned Yost and his team have dipped from 5/1 to 11/2 odds, but with one of the majors’ highest-scoring offenses and the third-best team ERA in the AL, still stand as Toronto’s main competition for the title.

Over in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers own a comfortable 7.5-game lead in the NL West and at 6/1 odds figure to be the league’s representative in the Fall Classic for the first time since 1988.

Odds makers give the Dodgers the edge over the St. Louis Cardinals (13/2) and the New York Mets (13/2) because of their devastating one-two starting rotation. Zack Greinke appears a shoe-in to claim the second Cy Young of his career thanks to a 1.61 ERA and 17 wins this season, and last year’s winner Clayton Kershaw owns a 2.12 ERA and leads the majors with 264 strikeouts.
