The 2020 MLB playoffs get underway Tuesday afternoon as the 16-team race to the World Series is officially upon us. Major League Baseball completed an abbreviated 60-game season and now starts a one-time (we think) 16-team playoff.

DraftKings Sportsbook has updated their postseason odds, and while we wait for Wild Card round game and series lines, we’ve got one more look at World Series and league championship odds heading into the first round.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a sizable favorite, sitting at +130 to win the National League and +350 to win the World Series. They played .717 ball this season, finishing as the only team north of a .700 win percentage. The Tampa Bay Rays had the second best record at 40-20 and are tied for the second best odds to win the Commissioner’s Trophy.

It’s not surprising that even though the New York Yankees finished the season with the 10th best record overall and sixth best record in the American League, they have strong odds to advance. They are tied with the Rays in World Series odds and have the best odds to win the American League. The Yankees are a talented team, but perception also likely influences this number a bit.

The first set of odds next to each team is to win the World Series. The second set in parenthesis is to win each team’s respective league.

Dodgers: +350 (+130)
Yankees: +600 (+280)
Rays: +600 (+300)
Athletics: +1000 (+500)
Padres: +1000 (+500)
Braves: +1100 (+550)
Twins: +1400 (+550)
Cubs: +1500 (+700)
White Sox: +1500 (+650)
Indians: +1500 (+650)
Astros: +2500 (+1100)
Reds: +3000 (+1500)
Cardinals: +3300 (+1400)
