Dodgers Remain Atop in Updated World Series Odds Heading Into League Championship Series
By Zach Brunner
It has been a long road, filled with hurdle after hurdle to leap over, but the MLB League Championship Series have arrived! The cream has risen to the top, with the four best teams competing for a shot to play for the World Series title, in one of the most unique seasons in MLB history.
With a few surprises in the MLB Postseason, there have been significant updates to the odds to win the 2020 World Series over on FanDuel Sportsbook.
In the National League, we have seen the two top-ranked teams emerge victorious to move onto the NLCS. The top-ranked Los Angeles Dodgers entered the MLB Postseason with the best odds to win the World Series. Their odds have shortened, as they remain the favorites, at +160.
Unsurprisingly, this means their opponents, the Atlanta Braves, now currently have the worst odds to win the World Series, of the four remaining teams. Their odds sit at +450 to win it all.
The American League also features its top-ranked team in the ALCS, with the Tampa Bay Rays still alive. Their odds to win the World Series sit only behind the Dodgers', at +240.
The surprise team in the League Championship Series, who many did not want to see return, is the Houston Astros. Of course, they were at the center of controversy last offseason, but they seem to have silenced the critics. Still, FanDuel Sportsbook gives them the third-best odds to win the World Series, at +330.
