Twins Near Top Of World Series Favorites
Oddsmakers in Las Vegas like the Twins' chances of going all the way in the COVID-shortened 2020 season. MLB will play an abbreviated schedule beginning July 23rd.
According to the DraftKings Sportsbook, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the favorites to win the title at +375, followed by the New York Yankees at +400 and Houston Astros at 650.
Atlanta ranks fourth at +1300, while the Twins follow at +1600 for the fifth-best odds.
The Miami Marlins, Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers have the worst odds at +75000. Of course, sports betting is illegal in Minnesota so this is just for fun.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred implemented a 60 game slate earlier this week, with the players union officially signing off on the deal Tuesday. Players are to report to their home parks for a second "spring" training.
