While we still don’t even know if there will be a 2020 Major League Baseball season, that hasn’t stopped the oddsmakers from putting out more betting lines involving the Colorado Rockies and the rest of MLB.
BetOnline has revealed the team-by-team winning percentages for each MLB team heading into the 2020 campaign. Despite not knowing how many games will be played, where games might be played, if they will be played in front of any fans, and if a season is even going to take place, the site has set the bar for the over-under in winning percentage for the Colorado Rockies and every other MLB squad.
When I asked about the line and some of the background on establishing it, I was told that, since the number of games is unknown at this time, the oddsmakers decided to set over/unders on winning percentages regardless of games. Additionally, if and when a season and the number of games are announced, they will create over/unders for win totals.

Currently, the Rockies sit with an over-under winning percentage of 45.5 percent. Using my advanced math skills, if the 2020 regular season was 100 games, those betting on the Rockies would have to decide if they believe the team would post a record better or worse than 45-55.
Sure, there are a lot of questions we don’t know about the 2020 season. However, it’s once again been made pretty clear that oddsmakers don’t have a lot of faith in Colorado’s chances to make the postseason.
