The Washington Nationals may have just clinched their first World Series title last night, but that now means it's officially time for bettors to look forward to the 2020 World Series.

Despite this offseason having the potential for some power-shifting moves, many of the usual suspects remain near the top of the odds to win the 2020 World Series.

Odds to Win 2020 World Series

This year's World Series loser, the Houston Astros open the offseason with the best odds at +500, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. They are closely followed by the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees though, with both sitting at +600.

Another young and up-and-coming playoff team, the Atlanta Braves have the fourth-best odds at +1100.

While the Red Sox missed the playoffs this year, Boston checks in with the fifth-best odds to win it all in 2020 at +1200. The Nationals (+1400), meanwhile, have the sixth-best odds.

Both teams could look completely different by offseason's end, though. The Nationals will be faced with trying to re-sign the World Series MVP in Stephen Strasburg, along with their star third baseman Anthony Rendon.

For Boston, there are already rumors suggesting the Red Sox could move on from some star players in an effort to retool. That could mean Boston won't re-sign J.D. Martinez if he decides to opt out of his contract, and there are even rumors suggesting the Red Sox could look to trade former AL MVP Mookie Betts.

As for the long shots, Bryce Harper's Philadelphia Phillies (+2000) have the 10th-best odds, with Christian Yelich's Milwaukee Brewers and Pete Alonso's New York Mets sitting right behind, tied at +2200.

While the Astros are currently favored to win the 2020 World Series, we can expect a ton of changes to these odds throughout the offseason.
