Who Will Win The 2020 World Series?

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

On opening day of the 2020 MLB season, the only question most fans are asking already is: Who is going to win the World Series this year? The Washington Nationals are in the mix to defend their title, while the rival Atlanta Braves will give them a challenge just for the National League East, let alone the pennant. In the American League, there are the up-and-coming Minnesota Twins trying to repeat last season's success and hold off the Cleveland Indians.

Some major talents changed teams in the offseason, with Mookie Betts heading to the already loaded Los Angeles Dodgers, ace pitcher Madison Bumgarner going to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and MVP candidate Anthony Rendon joining the Los Angeles Angels. All of those players will be looking to help their new teams get to the World Series and raise the trophy.

So check out the odds for all the 2020 World Series contenders below, and vote for your playoff picks. Then keep checking back as the season goes on to see how quickly things can change.
