MLB Division Odds from Las Vegas
Major League Baseball has decided (at the absolute last moment) to change their playoff structure for the 2020 season. Eight teams from each league will make the playoffs – the top two teams from each division, plus two additional wild cards. The first round of the playoffs will be a three-game series hosted by the higher-rated team. How will this affect the 2020 MLB division odds, knowing that there’s now very little benefit in actually winning your division? Imagine being the Los Angeles Dodgers and racking up a 42-18 regular season, winning the NL West by ten games, then putting your season on the line in a three-game series against a 30-30 Mets team where you’ll have to face Jacob deGrom?!

Major League Baseball’s Andrew Simon wrote a piece on what kind of results a 60-game season would have created over the last decade. The last two National League pennant winners would have missed the playoffs. The Mariners would have made the playoffs three times in the last eight years. Instead of the seven-year streak that they are currently on, the Dodgers would have lost the NL West four times.
