Well, with the 2019 season now in the books, it’s time to start looking forward to the 2020 campaign. Of course, there’s a huge amount of water to flow under the bridge even before we get to Opening Day next year. And that’s before whatever team goes 19-31 to start the season becomes a lock to win the World Series. But for amusement, the odds are out for 2020. The reigning champion Nationals are a perhaps surprisingly long 10-1 to win it, behind the Astros, Dodgers and Yankees. Mind you, they do have some free agents about to hit the market. The D-backs are a brisk 75-1, which sounds like it might be worth dropping a $20 on. Here’s the full list.

  • Houston Astros: 13/2
  • Los Angeles Dodgers: 7/1
  • New York Yankees: 8/1
  • Washington Nationals: 10/1
  • Atlanta Braves: 12/1
  • Boston Red Sox: 12/1
  • St. Louis Cardinals: 21/1
  • Chicago Cubs: 24/1
  • Cleveland Indians: 27/1
  • Philadelphia Phillies: 29/1
  • New York Mets: 29/1
  • Tampa Bay Rays: 32/1
  • Minnesota Twins: 35/1
  • Milwaukee Brewers 40/1
  • Oakland Athletics: 40/1

  • San Diego Padres: 75/1
  • Cincinnati Reds: 75/1
  • Chicago White Sox: 80/1
  • Texas Rangers: 130/1
  • Colorado Rockies: 165/1
  • Toronto Blue Jays: 200/1
  • San Francisco Giants: 200/1
  • Pittsburgh Pirates: 300/1
  • Seattle Mariners: 500/1
  • Miami Marlins: 1000/1
  • Kansas City Royals: 2000/1
  • Baltimore Orioles: 2000/1
  • Detroit Tigers: 2000/1

There are a few interesting other bets as well. Gerrit Cole is currently favorite to win the Cy Young in both the American AND National Leagues, presumably depending on where he signs. You can get odds on that as well, with the Angels and Astros co-favorites there at 4-1. The D-backs are mentioned in the odds of precisely... zero of the free agent players, so we’ll skip all those. But here are a selection of the wagers on offer.
