With the 2018 World Series matchup now

set Kolten Wong Jersey , the oddsmakers are weighing in.The Boston Red Sox enter the Fall Classic favored over the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to OddsShark:OddsShark OddsSharkWe have a World Series. Lookahead lines from earlier this week (BovadaOfficial):Dodgers EVENRed Sox -130Boston has been met with little resistance on its way to the American League pennant. Under first-year manager Alex Cora, the Red Sox cruised to the AL East crown by going a franchise-record 108-54 during the regular season. They took out the archrival New York Yankees in four games in the ALDS, and after dropping the opening game of the ALCS, they ran off four straight wins against the Houston Astros in the ALCS.Powered by AL MVP candidates J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts, the Red Sox have had the top offense in both the regular season and the postseason.Not only that, but former AL Cy Young award winner David Price appears to have exorcized his postseason demons. After his teams were winless in his first 10 career postseason starts, Boston went 2-0 in the five-time All-Star's ALCS starts. That includes six innings of three-hit, shutout baseball to close out the Astros in Game 5.If Price carries that momentum over, one of Boston's previous weaknesses could turn out to be a strength.Meanwhile Trevor Rosenthal Jersey , things weren't so easy for Los Angeles in the National League. The Dodgers (92-71) had to scratch and claw their way into the postseason, and they needed a 163rd game in order to win the NL West. They easily handled the Atlanta Braves in four games in the NLDS but were pushed to the limit by the red-hot Milwaukee Brewers in the NLCS.Ultimately, Los Angeles pulled out a 5-1 victory on the road at Miller Park to win its second consecutive NL pennant.The Dodgers are strong both on the mound and at the plate. Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler andHyun-Jin Ryu have come up with big starts throughout the playoffs. Also, the offense ranked second only to the record-setting Yankees with 235 home runs.Los Angeleshad10players reach double digits, with seven reaching the 20 mark.Boston owns home-field advantage after finishing with the better record during the regular season. Game 1 will be played at Fenway Park, with first pitch on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 8:09 p.m. ET. By the time the All-Star break concludes, Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado likely will be wearing a different uniform.According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic , "Machado will represent the Orioles in the All-Star Game....but he is expected to be traded before the regular season resumes later in the week, according to sources involved in the trade discussions."There have been no shortage of Machado reports in recent days:Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Dodgers remain in mix for Machado, sources tell The Athletic. #Brewers in consistent contact with #Orioles; #Phillies as well. Yankees seem less involved. Talks fluid. BAL鈥檚 internal politics make nothing a sure thing.Buster Olney Buster_ESPNSource indicated last Sunday his sense was that the Orioles were at the 35-yard-line and driving in the Machado trade conversations. Same source this Sunday: quot;10-yard-line.quot; PHI, Brewers, Dodgers waiting for the goal line call. As mentioned yesterday, Orioles have narrowed focus.Nick Cafardo nickcafardoMultiple teams still in the hunt for Manny Machado. Yankees are quot;seriousquot; according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Also, growing number of teams lining up their bids for closer Zach Britton.The Machado chase remains the most fascinating story in baseball because of his pending free agency.How much will interested teams be willing to give up for a potential rental? Will Machado give extra consideration to re-signing with the team that trades for him, or is he simply going to seek the most lucrative offer and biggest market? If Machado's new team doesn't win the World Series, was it worth it to sacrifice prospects?Those aren't easy questions for prospective suitors to answer. One thing is all but certain, however: Machado's time in Baltimore has come to a close.During the Orioles' 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday Carlos Martinez Jersey , Machado was removed from the game ahead of the fifth inning following a brief rain delay. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters field conditions played a part in the decision but alluded to a potential trade."Obviously, there's a different situation going on with Manny," he said, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun. "You all know that. That had a lot to do with it. ... A month ago, he wouldn't have come out of the game. We know that. You know it. You're smart. I think you know what's going on."The non-waiver trade deadline isn't until July 31, but it appears the Machado sweepstakes is nearing its end. By the time the regular season resumes, it seems likely the superstar shortstop will have finally been dealt.
