World Series Odds

The 2020 MLB Postseason is officially here and it’s going to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen. We’re entering the final stretch of the all-out sprint and the 2020 World Series is still completely up for grabs.

The American League is going to be an all-out brawl. While the Los Angeles Dodgers are the favorite to win the World Series right now, the next three teams in the odds are the New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays, and Oakland Athletics. The AL is stacked with dangerous teams in addition to those three.

The Minnesota Twins are an offensive juggernaut, the Cleveland Indians have a dangerous pitching staff, and the Chicago White Sox are one of the most electric young teams in MLB.

And with the expanded format of this Postseason, upsets could be coming in the Wild Card Series. With 16 teams making the Postseason, MLB needed to make the Wild Card Series a best-of-three. That means that one great start from a team’s ace could completely change the dynamic of a series.

Seeing one of the favorites like the Dodgers, Yankees, or Rays drop the first game of the Wild Card Series is a definite possibility. There is almost no margin for error in a three-game series so we could definitely see some upsets that change the balance of power.

Aside from the quick Wild Card Series, the grueling schedule of this year’s Postseason could prove to be important as well. In an effort to make sure they get in all the games in a timely manner, MLB is doing away with all the off days that typically come during the Postseason. Expect to see more five-man rotations and managers going deeper into the bullpen in 2020 than ever before.
