With the Colorado Rockies hot start to the 2020 season, their betting odds on winning the World Series have skyrocketed.
The Colorado Rockies enter Friday in first place in the NL West with a record of 9-3 through 20 percent of the season.
As a result, the Rockies betting odds on winning the World Series have skyrocketed from where they were to begin the season. Originally, they had 150/1 odds to win the World Series, according to BetOnline.ag. Now, entering play on Friday, BetOnline has the Rockies odds at winning the World Series at 28/1. That number is 13th best in Major League Baseball when previously, their 150/1 odds were tied for 23rd in MLB.
In other words, if you were to place a $100 bet on the Rockies to win the World Series in 2020 and they did end up winning, you would win $2800.
Their team ranking is the biggest jump of any team in the sport.

Ahead of the Rockies in the World Series odds are the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, Atlanta Braves, Chicago White Sox, Houston Astros, Tampa Bay Rays, Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs, San Diego Padres, Cleveland Indians, and the Washington Nationals.
For winning the NL Pennant, the Rockies odds entering the season were 80/1 but now, they are 14/1. That is tied for 6th in the NL when they were previously 12th.
Those 14/1 is equivalent to winning $1400 on a $100 bet.
NL teams that have better odds of winning the National League pennant are the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, San Diego Padres, and Washington Nationals. For NL odds, the Rockies are tied with the New York Mets.
The Rockies do not face a team that has better odds than them until August 17 (Houston) so the Rockies will have some time to build up their numbers against lesser teams. They will face the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Texas Rangers for three games each.
That stretch will start tonight in Seattle when the Rockies will have Antonio Senzatela on the mound to face Yusei Kikuchi at 7:40 PM MT.
