When Opening Day in MLB Finally Arrives, 5 Favorites to Bet On
Posted: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 by CapperTek

Even if it’s for the best, we’re all disappointed at the sports world coming to a halt because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, it’s best to remain optimistic that things we’ll get back to normal soon. The MLB opening day may have been pushed back, but when the new opening day arrives, the top sports books and pay per head bookies will be ready to take action.

Here are the 5 teams to win the World Series

Odds Provided by ScoresandStats

 

 

Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-1

Keep in mind that the Dodgers traded for Mookie Betts and David Price right before the start of spring training. With Betts and Cody Bellinger in the middle of the Los Angeles lineup, the Dodgers have arguably the two best position players in baseball not named Mike Trout. It doesn’t hurt to have A.J. Pollock, Justin Turner, Corey Seager, and Max Muncy in the lineup either. Meanwhile, Price is the no. 3 starter in a rotation that is still led by Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler. Remember that the Dodgers have won seven straight NL West titles, so you don’t have to worry too much about them getting to the playoffs, which is half the battle when picking a World Series winner.

New York Yankees, 7-2

Admittedly, the injury bug was not kind to the Yankees during the early part of spring training. But the Yankees were hit hard by injuries in 2019 too and still managed to win 103 games and reach the ALCS. The biggest difference between last year’s team and this year’s team is the presence of Gerrit Cole at the top of the rotation. He gives the Yankees the ace they were missing last season. With just a little more fortune in the injury department, the Bronx Bombers should slug their way to another AL East title and be the best option to reach the Fall Classic out of the American League.

Houston Astros, 8-1

It probably won’t be easy for the Astros to play the role of the villain this season. But with everyone questioning the validity of their 2017 championship, they will feel like they have something to prove and be motivated to win another one without anybody banging on trash cans from the dugout. More importantly, the Astros have just as much talent as they’ve had the last three years when they won 100-plus games and steamrolled the AL West. You may hate them as you should, but don’t sleep on them as a World Series contender.

Minnesota Twins, 16-1

Yes, it feels weird to think of the Twins as a World Series contender. But this team hit the snot out of the ball last season, leading the majors in home runs. Minnesota’s lineup will be mostly the same as it was in 2019 except with the addition of Josh Donaldson to provide even more power. The starting rotation has a chance to be even better too with the additions of Kenta Maeda and Homer Bailey behind the 1-2 punch of Jose Berrios and Jake Odorizzi. With pitching and power, the Twins look like a serious threat in 2020.

 

 

New York Mets, 16-1

Recent history says to be skeptical, but betters love the Mets in 2020. They have six proven starters, which is more than most teams, highlighted by back-to-back Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom. They also have reigning Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso anchoring the lineup after smacking 53 home runs last season. There’s also enough around Alonso to make the Mets feel good about their offense. The X-factor for New York is the trio of Edwin Diaz, Jeurys Familia, and Dellin Betances in the bullpen. If those guys can all bounce back from rough 2019 campaigns, look out for the Mets!
