The Los Angeles Dodgers are co-favorites to win the World Series with the New York Yankees at (+350) odds according to Sportsbook.ag. That seems about right for a team that is loaded as the Los Angeles Dodgers are this season. 

LA Dodgers World Series Champs

Dodgers Recent Season Results

The Dodgers have lost in the World Series in 2 out of the last 3 seasons. They lost in the National League Division Series last year. Some thought that was an early exit for them but the team they lost to went on to win the World Series. The Dodgers have had to face three REALLY good teams over the last three seasons in the Washington Nationals, Boston Red Sox, and Houston Astros. 

Dodgers 2020 Additions

The Dodgers have added one of the best players in baseball to their lineup in Mookie Betts. They got a pretty good price for him and hope that he will sign there long term. That doesn’t really matter over the next few months though, all the Dodgers and Mookie care about right now is winning. The Dodgers also added David Price in that same trade with the Red Sox. The Dodgers will be happy to have Price on their side this season after he dominated them in his two World Series starts back in 2018. Julio Urias isn’t an addition but another year of development and he will feel like an addition with the stuff that he is capable of. The universal DH. Pitchers don’t need to hit in the NL anymore and that means the Dodgers can add another big bat to their lineup which looks deadly.

Dodgers 2020 Projected Lineup

  1. Mookie Betts
  2. Gavin Lux
  3. Max Muncy
  4. Justin Turner
  5. Cody Bellinger
  6. Corey Seager
  7. A.J. Pollock
  8. Joc Pederson
  9. Will Smith

Dodgers 2020 Projected Rotation

  1. Clayton Kershaw
  2. Walker Buehler
  3. David Price
  4. Alex Wood
  5. Julio Urias

Why to bet them

This team is absolutely loaded, they have been close, and they have added major pieces for 2020. The Los Angeles Dodgers are equipped to compete with anyone. Their top competition in the National League will be the Washington Nationals, Atlanta Braves, and New York Mets. The Dodgers look to be levels above those teams on paper and it should play out on the field. With a post season rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and David Price they have three legitimate aces. Some people will say Price isn’t the same but just two years ago he proved he cane dominate when his mind is right.

Why not to bet them

If you are a New York Yankees fan. I honestly can’t think of any other reason not to bet on the Dodgers to win the World Series. On paper, they should win the World Series and even though the season is shorter, it still counts!
