For the Colorado Rockies, there is no question that 2019 was a season to forget on many levels. Some of the oddsmakers believe 2020 will be about the same.
According to the oddsmakers at The Action Network have the Colorado Rockies at +6600 to win the 2020 World Series. Those are the same odds given to the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Angels to win it all. As an aside, our own Noah Yingling had a look at the similarities between the Rockies and the Angels in this article.
What do those numbers mean? Simply put, a bet of $100 on the Rockies to win the 2020 World Series would yield $6,600 should Colorado bring home the franchise’s first-ever World Championship.

The Houston Astros, downed by the Washington Nationals in seven games in the recently-completed World Series, are the favorites to win the 2020 title at +400. The Los Angeles Dodgers follow them at +450 while the New York Yankees (+600) and Boston Red Sox (+900) round out the top four.
Defending World Champion Washington comes in at fifth at +1000.
At the other end of the odds, after the Rockies-Diamondbacks-Angels trio come the Texas Rangers (+8000) and Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays (+10000). Bringing up the rear is the Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, Baltimore Orioles and Miami Marlins at +20000.
The only other National League West team not mentioned so far is the San Diego Padres, who came in at +4000. So, if looking at only these lines, the Dodgers are favored to win the division yet again, followed by the Padres, with the Rockies and Diamondbacks battling for third.
Certainly much will happen in the offseason to impact the odds so we’ll be keeping a close look on how they change as spring training draws ever closer.
Voters in Colorado just passed Proposition DD, meaning residents of the state will be allowed to place their first bets on May 1, 2020. The Rockies are scheduled to play the Phillies that night in Philadelphia.
