- After signing Gerrit Cole, the Yankees have joined the Dodgers at favorites to win the 2020 World Series.
- Here's the full list of updated 2020 Worlds Series MLB futures odds.
The Winter Meetings are off and running and big moves have already been made. As a result, 2020 World Series futures are starting to shift.
As was the case right after the conclusion of the 2019 World Series, there are still three teams alone in the top tier: Yankees, Dodgers and Astros.
The Bronx Bombers have flip-flopped with the Astros, though, as they now are the proud owners of Houston’s ex-fireballer Gerrit Cole.
Here’s a look at updated 2020 World Series MLB odds from PointsBet:
As was the case last year, the Dodgers are a rung above the other National League contenders largely due to the divisional setup. Their win total is more than 10 wins higher than the second-best NL West team, while the NL East and NL Central contenders need to duke it out just to make the postseason.
The second tier of teams consists of the Red Sox, Nationals and Braves at 12-1 a pop.
Odds as of Dec. 12 at 10:30 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150). No strings attached. No rollover required.
Boston’s route to the playoffs just got tougher thanks to New York’s addition of Cole, and it’s possible that the Sox’s odds fall even further if they trade away any of their key players.
A big chunk of teams sit between +1800 and +2200, a range that many bettors may like. In fact, the Nationals began last season in the same boat.
Stay posted for more updates throughout the offseason as more news breaks and more futures become available.
