It’s been a rollercoaster of a season, but baseball fans still have a World Series in October.
Pandemic delays aside, Major League Baseball kept things on track throughout the shortened 60-game season.
Championship week is here, and the LA Dodgers are ready to face off with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Indiana’s online sportsbooks will be taking action on every possible game from Oct. 20-27.
Each sportsbook has something unique to offer, so Hoosiers will have plenty of betting options to pick from.
2020 World Series odds
Every one of Indiana’s online betting apps has the Dodgers as the favorites to win the series.
LA is also the favorite for Game 1 of the series, so there’s some value out there if you’re confident in the Rays.
Here’s a quick look at the odds for Game 1 and the World Series as a whole:
|To Win World Series||Game 1 Moneyline||Game 1 Spread||Game 1 Over/Under Total|
|DraftKings||LA -200, TB +160||LA -182, TB +155||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|FanDuel||LA -210, TB +176||LA -170, TB +148||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|BetMGM||LA -200, TB +165||LA -176, TB +155||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|PointsBet||LA -200, TB +160||LA -180, TB +150||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|BetRivers||LA -200, TB +160||LA -182, TB +155||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|Caesars||LA -200, TB +175||LA -170, TB +155||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
|theScore Bet||LA -220, TB +180||LA -175, TB +165||LA -1.5, TB +1.5||O/U 7.5|
The Dodgers may be the favorites, but they don’t have the odds edge by much. If Game 1 doesn’t go their way, the series odds could easily shift in Tampa Bay’s favor.
