Dodgers betting favorites to defeat Astros in World Series

Can the Dodgers win their seventh World Series?

According to the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the odds are in Los Angeles' favor that it will defeat the Astros for the championship title.

ESPN.com reported that by Sunday morning, the Dodgers' odds sit at -160 for them to win it all. These odds come after the Astros knocked the Yankees out of title contention with a 4-0 victory in Game 7 of the ALCS Saturday night.

This marks the first time since 1988 the Dodgers have been back to the World Series. They won that year, and have previous Series titles from 1955, 1959, 1963, 1965 and 1981.

Meanwhile, the Astros have only been to the World Series once before — in 2005, where they lost to the White Sox.

The Westgate SuperBook considered both teams playoff contenders, but neither were favorites to go to the World Series.
