Harry How/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are officially World Series favorites.Oddsshark passed along the latest odds http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/josh-rosen-jersey , which have the Red Sox at +190 favorites to win the AL pennant. The Dodgers are +245 favorites to win the NL.Boston is currently the best team in baseball under any possible measurement. The Red Sox are an MLB-best 85-35 with a plus-213 run differential, which is 18 runs better than any other team. The Houston Astros (plus-195) are the only team within 70 runs.Houston, the defending World Series champs Josh Rosen Jersey Limited , is listed at +210 to win the American League.The Dodgers likely owe their favorite status to their deadline trade for Manny Machado. Losers of four straight games coming into Tuesday, Los Angeles would be out of the postseason if it began today. The Arizona Diamondbacks lead the NL West by one game over the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies.Making matters even more surprising is that the Dodgers are a pretty heavy NL favorite. The Chicago Cubs (+400) are the only other team that have 4-to-1 odds or better. The Cubs currently have the NL's best record and are tied with the Dodgers for the league's best run differential.Perhaps the best value on the board is the Oakland Athletics at +1000. Oakland has been red hot over the last few months and has the type of offense that could go toe-to-toe with Boston and Houston's pitching staffs in October.American League OddsRed Sox +190Astros +210Yankees +350 Indians +600Athletics +1000Mariners +1400Angels +15000 Rays +35000Twins +45000National League OddsDodgers +245Cubs +400Brewers +750Phillies +800Braves +800Diamondbacks +800Nationals +1200Rockies +1800Cardinals +1800Pirates +2000Giants +3000Reds +50000 The Cincinnati Reds are apparently not in the business of helping out division foes.Bobby Nightengale of theCincinnati Enquirerreported the Reds are not planning to trade Matt Harvey to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers claimed Harvey on revocable waivers and had until 1:30 p.m. ET to work out a trade.Cincinnati also could have allowed Harvey to leave via waivers and saved $1.1 million for the remainder of the season.Harvey has gone 6-5 with a 4.28 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 17 starts after coming over from the New York Mets. He's had his best month of the season in August, highlighted by 6.1 innings of four-hit shutout ball last week against the San Francisco Giants.Reds president of baseball operationsDick Williams said the team approached Harvey about an extension but were rebuffed. Harvey is a free agent at the end of this season."He鈥檚 a free agent at the end of the year Authentic Julio Jones Jersey ," Williamstold reporters. "We understand that and are open to moving him if the appropriate deal comes along."Harvey's impending free agent status made this seem like a no-brainer for the Reds, who are 56-72 and nowhere close to sniffing the playoffs. Even allowing Harvey to walk and getting nothing in return nets them $1.1 million鈥攏othing to scoff at for a small-market team that's often pinching every penny.Whatever player to be named later the Reds would have received for Harvey seems unlikely to be a high-level prospect.So, more than anything Julio Jones Jersey Limited , Cincy just passed on helping out a division rival at the cost of $1.1 million.
