2020 World Series Odds

Only four clubs remain in baseball’s postseason. The American League Championship Series kicks off this Sunday in a best-of-seven matchup between the small-market Tampa Bay Rays and everyone’s favourite nemesis: the Houston Astros. In the National League, the two best offenses in the Bigs will face off as the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Atlanta Braves. 

The format of Championship Series (seven games in seven days) will challenge each team, and those that can dig a little deeper into their talent pool are likely to persevere. Teams won’t be able to rely on one or two lights-out starters, and managers will need to be very selective as they attempt to deploy pitching and batting matchups. Let’s discuss the four remaining teams’ odds to win World Series’ accolades and why they’re the best option for your MLB Vegas odds bet slip.

MLB Odds to Win the World Series 


Los Angeles Dodgers +160 MLB Odds

The Dodgers have continued their regular season dominance into the postseason, cruising through the Wild Card and Divisional rounds. And when we speak of depth, there’s no team that has more of it than the Dodgers. From spots 1 through 9 in the batting order, the Dodgers can exploit even the best opposing pitching. They also have two Aces in Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler, and a bullpen that’s capable of shutting down the best offences in the league. This truly is LA’s Championship to lose, and their spot at the top of the World Series odds is warranted.

Tampa Bay Rays +210 MLB Odds

Despite finishing atop the American League during the regular season, the Tampa Bay Rays feel like a Cinderella team this postseason. They’re small market and lack the household names needed to be perceived as a favourite. But make no mistake, this Rays club is edged only by the Dodgers in team depth and have earned their spot on the MLB betting lines. The Rays have five quality arms in the rotation and arguably the most talented bullpen of the four remaining teams. 

Atlanta Braves +400 MLB Odds

The Braves’ offense was dominant during the regular season, but it’s been their pitching and defense that has stood out so far this postseason. They’ve shut out the opposition in four of their five playoff games, and have continued to pound the ball offensively. The main criticism of the Braves so far is that they haven’t really faced a true contender yet in the playoffs, having defeated the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins easily. We’ll see what they’re made of when they go up against LA, starting Monday. 

Houston Astros +425 MLB Odds

The Astros had the longest World Series odds on the MLB lines entering into their divisional series at +1500. But with Carlos Correa coming alive to a tune of a .500 batting average to go along with a playoff-best four homeruns and 12 RBI, and much of the 2019 Championship roster still intact, the Astros are a legitimate threat to deliver on their underdog status.
