MLB 2020 Season Betting Restart: What to Expect, New Format and Latest World Series Predictions

The 2020 Major League Baseball season is on the verge of beginning after a four-month delay, with 30 franchises set to compete in a 60-game season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Players will report for pre-season training by July 1 with the season scheduled to begin on July 23, and 2020’s predicted favorites will fight to keep their place as top contenders despite the suspension. The World Series is expected to run from October 20 to October 28.

The Los Angeles Dodgers can be found among those frontrunners, including their +375 (4.75) listing as favorites with PlaySugarHouse NJ , just in front of the New York Yankees at +400. The Houston Astros are the only other team listed at less than 10-1 as they look to turn a fresh page with Dusty Baker as manager following the sign-stealing scandal that’s covered the team in controversy  for much of the past six months:

2020 MLB Season. Predicted World Series Winner: New York Yankees (+400)

Predictions for who will win this 2020 MLB season could be wildly affected by the coronavirus, with much depending on which teams and players have maintained fitness and form ahead of the restart. 

MLB Commissioner, Rob Manfred, recently said: “Major League Baseball is thrilled to announce that the 2020 season is on the horizon. We have provided the Players Association with a schedule to play 60 games and are excited to provide our great fans with Baseball again soon.”

The Dodgers look like a good bet to win the National League at +160 (2.60) with SugarHouse considering they’ve made the play-offs in seven straight seasons and lost the World Series in two of those. The Yankees lead as predicted +175 (2.75) favorites to win the American League for New Jersey customers, having topped the East division for the first time since 2012 last year.

Aaron Boone’s side promise to benefit from the delay to proceedings after an injury-ravaged 2019, with a host of his best players fit or thereabouts approaching the restart. Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez are just four of the major names who will be ready to boost the Yankees’ odds in 2020 and could make them the team to beat in a condensed schedule.
