The 2020 Major League Baseball season will likely start at sometime in the near future and when it does, the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees will begin the season as MLB World Series favorites. When it comes to 2020 World Series odds there is a big gap between the two power teams and everyone else.
The Dodgers and Yankees are listed at odds of about 4-1, while the next team on the odds board is the Houston Astros and they are listed at 10-1. Let’s look at the latest World Series odds, top contenders, darkhorse, and a live longshot.
Which Team will win the 2020 MLB World Series?

There are the Dodgers and Yankees at the top of the World Series odds board and then everyone else. There seems to be a major gulf between the top two teams and the rest of the league. The Dodgers are loaded across the board and when they added Mookie Betts and David Price they overtook the Yankees for the top spot as the 2020 World Series favorite. The Yankees added Gerrit Cole to their rotation, but they do have some major question marks in their starting rotation. That is not the case with the Dodgers who have Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Price, Julio Urias and Dustin May.

I don’t even put the Astros in the darkhorse category, but they are next on the odds board so I will briefly mention them. The Astros are completely overvalued and they will have a bullseye on their back all season. I don’t see them as a serious contender to win the World Series in 2020. The Braves, Mets and Nationals have similar odds and one of the three is probably going to win the NL East. There is not a lot of value on any of those three teams. The Twins are next in terms of odds, but they are no longer going under the radar and their value seems to be gone. The same thing could be said about the Reds, who are listed at odds of 25-1.
An interesting team could be the White Sox who are listed at odds of 30-1. They made a number of excellent moves that should vault them into contention. They added Edwin Encarnacion and Yasmani Grandal to upgrade the offense and they added Dallas Keuchel and Gio Gonzalez to help out the rotation.
Another team that is worth watching is Philadelphia. They brought in Didi Gregorius who should stabilize the infield and give them another good bat and the Phillies added Zack Wheeler to give them another ace in their rotation. The Phillies could have some value at odds of 30-1.
The 2020 MLB season is likely going to be shorter because of the coronavirus and that could bring more teams into contention. One team that could have some value is the Arizona Diamondbacks. They are listed with World Series odds of 45-1. They added Madison Bumgarner, Starling Marte and Kole Calhoun. If the Diamondbacks can find some answers in the bullpen they could win a Wild Card spot and we know that anything can happen in the playoffs.
