2020 MLB: New York Yankees Top Predictions to Break World Series Curse

MLB 2020 Predictions

Baseball is officially back on Thursday when the 2020 Major League Baseball (MLB) season kicks off with two fixtures, including a clash between the New York Yankees and defending champions the Washington Nationals. 

The Yankees are seeking to break an 11 year World Series drought after failing to make an appearance in MLB’s main showcase since 2009, when they beat the Philadelphia Phillies to lift their 27th title. That figures remains more than twice as many as any other team—the Cardinals come closest with 11—and they’re predicted to challenge in breaking the trend this year.

Following a delay of almost four months due to the coronavirus pandemic, MLB makes its long-awaited return with the Yankees neck and neck as World Series odds leaders alongside the Los Angeles Dodgers, each priced +400 (5.00) with William Hill for New Jersey customers.

MLB 2020 World Series Predictions

The odds have titled away from the Dodgers since markets opened considering William Hill had the 2017 and 2018 World Series runners-up listed at +325 (4.25) on June 25. However, the west-coast outfit will be motivated to end their 32-year wait for a World Series and have a leading MVP candidate in Cody Bellinger leading their order:

The Yankees have attracted a lot of backing as they look to do damage with a newly fit lineup, the likes of Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge and Aaron Hicks among those who missed major game time last season.

Washington look a worthy outside bet at +1500 (16.00) as they hope to pull off the unthinkable and follow their maiden World Series with back-to-back victories. Thursday’s season opener against the Yankees will be a grand test of where the Nationals stand in that regard, with a chance to lay down an early marker if they can stage an upset.

Call it “the usual buzz” surrounding the Yankees if you like, but this year’s roster looks like it has the legs to push last year’s American League East winners back to baseball’s top table.

Predicted MLB World Series Winner: New York Yankees (+400).
