Baseball fans are in luck. First of all, baseball is finally coming back, after commissioner Rob Manfred implemented a 60-game season and agreed on health and safety protocols with the MLBPA. As a result, MLB betting is coming back with a vengeance as well.
FanDuel Sportsbook is offering up to $50 in site credit for players who place a wager of $50 or more on any MLB team to win the 2020 World Series. Bettors will receive $5 for every win their team gets in the first 10 games of the season.
MLB World Series Win Bonus
- $50+ wage on 2020 MLB World Series winner
- Win $5 in site credit for each win by your team
- For example, if the Phillies win five of their first 10 games, that would equate to $25 in bonus credit
- Caps at $50 bonus
- One wager per bettor
- Cash out & live bets ineligible
- Odds boost ineligible
- Opt-in required
This bonus is a little insurance for bettors who might be wary of placing a bet with the shortened season. This means that the margin for error is going to be slimmer than ever. One bad week could tank a team’s chances of making the postseason.
Even a juggernaut roster like the New York Yankees or Los Angeles Dodgers could fall victim to a slump that drastically lowers their World Series chances. However, the Yankees and Dodgers are two teams who could win back a decent chunk of money within those first 10 games.
With that said, this could persuade some bettors to take a chance on one of the World Series longshots like the Toronto Blue Jays (+10000) or Colorado Rockies (+15000). If either of those teams goes .500 in the first 10 games, bettors will make half of their money back on a $50 bet. If there was ever a season where a longshot team would go on a run and win the World Series, 2020 might be it.
