2020 World Series Odds: Neutral Site Playoffs on the Horizon

Ready or not, there is less than two weeks left in the 2020 Major League Baseball regular season. The Caesars Sports Book has just released their updated 2020 World Series odds, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are the +250 favorites, followed by the Oakland A’s (+750) and Chicago White Sox (+800). A trio of teams sit at 9-to-1: New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and Tampa Bay Rays.

We finally have some clarity on what the 2020 MLB Playoffs format will be. The higher-seeded team will host a best-of-three series in the Wild Card Round. The winners of those Wild Card rounds will move to neutral sites for a best-of-five Division Series, followed by best-of-seven Championship series. The NLCS will be held at the Texas Rangers’ new stadium in Arlington, with the ALCS taking place from Petco Park in San Diego. There will be no days off between any games within a series. The American League’s Wild Card series is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 29, followed by the National League on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Game 1 of the World Series is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Oct. 20 from Globe Life Field in Arlington.
