As spring training games begin in Arizona, it's time to reference Las Vegas betting website Bovada.lv and check in with the latest MLB future odds, which feature the Oakland A's gaining steam.

Since the most recent update prior to pitchers and catchers reporting, when the Giants (16/1) were given better odds to win the World Series than the A's (20/1), Oakland's odds are on the rise.

Almost three weeks later, the A's odds are up to 18/1, bumping them from a share of the 11th best odds to the 10th best odds in the bigs.

The A's are 2/1 to win the AL West, even with the Angels and behind the Rangers, and 9/1 to win the AL pennant behind the Tigers, Red Sox, Rays, Yankees and Rangers.

The Giants have 11/4 odds to win the NL West, behind the Dodgers, and 15/2 odds to win the NL pennant, behind the Dodgers, Cardinals and Nationals.
