The Nationals are in the World Series.

A team that lost Bryce Harper to the Phillies in the offseason is headed to the Fall Classic. Counted out early as a young, talented team lacking experience, the Nats were 24-33 at the end of May. Things turned around in June and they entered the All-Star Break at 47-42.


But with trade deadline bullpen pickups, the team managed to have a successful second half of the season. After the All-Star Break, the Nationals went 46-27 and managed to squeeze into the  Wild Card game with the Brewers, trailed 3-1 in the eight, saw their odds to win it all spike to +5000, and now sit on the cusp of the franchise’s first World Series championship… at +140 odds.

We thought we would take a look back at the 2019 season to see how the odds of the Nats winning World Series changed throughout the year.

Here are the Broad Lines odds ,courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • June 25, prior to three-game winning streak: +5000 (1% probability)
  • All-Star Break: +2800 (2%)
  • September 29, end of regular season: +1700 (6%)
  • October 2, trailing 3-1 in the Wild Card Game: +5000 (1%)
  • October 3, before NLDS: +1500 (6%)
  • October 11, before NLCS: +450 (18%)
  • October 17, before World Series: +140 (41%)
