The controversy surrounding the Astros appears to have impacted the odds on the team winning the World Series in 2020. The World Series favorites at 5-to-1 on Oct. 30, the Astros slipped to No. 3 -- behind the Yankees and Dodgers -- in odds released Wednesday by www.betonline.ag.
The Rockies, meanwhile, are slotted fourth in the NL West at 40-to-1, an increase from the 25-to-1 odds on Oct. 30 when they were projected to finish second to the Dodgers. They now are behind the Giants and Padres, both of which are 33-to-1.
