Odds to Win the NL West: New-Look Dodgers are Astronomical Faves

Odds to Win the NL West

In case you haven’t been paying attention, the Los Angeles Dodgers have won the NL West for seven straight years. Is there a chance the loaded Dodgers will be dethroned in 2020? According to the latest odds, it doesn’t appear to be happening.

At Bovada, the Dodgers are the extremely heavy -900 favorites to win the NL West in the upcoming campaign. The Arizona Diamondbacks (+800), San Diego Padres (+1100), Colorado Rockies (+2800) and San Francisco Giants (+3300) find themselves well back of Los Angeles.

L.A. ran away with the division a year ago, posting a sparkling 106-56 record in the process. The Diamondbacks were the only other team in the West to finish above .500 at 85-77, as the Giants, Rockies and Padres all failed to reach the 80-win mark.

Will anything change this year, or will it be more of the same Dodgers dominance? Here’s a team-by-team breakdown of what to expect in the West this season:

Los Angeles Dodgers (-900)

Even before acquiring Mookie Betts and David Price in the recent blockbuster trade with the Boston Red Sox, the Dodgers were already the class of the National League. Now, with two of the best players in baseball (Betts and Cody Bellinger), a rock-solid pitching staff and a stacked bullpen, there’s no telling just how good this team is going to be in 2020.

Los Angeles has been the bridesmaid but never the bride in MLB in recent years, as the fan base is clearly getting frustrated thanks to seven straight years of playoff disappointments.

Whether Price and Betts can get this team over the hump remains to be seen, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have them on board, either. You won’t find any value in the -900 price at sportsbooks, but it looks like L.A. is going to run away with the NL West yet again.

Arizona Diamondbacks (+800)

The Diamondbacks’ promising 85-win season a year ago was nice to see, but they’re clearly struggling to close the gap on the Dodgers. Arizona boasts a promising core that includes Ketel Marte, Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed in the lineup.

Arizona was surprisingly active in free agency, adding Madison Bumgarner on an $85-million, five-year deal along with Kole Calhoun, Stephen Vogt and relievers Hector Rondon and Junior Guerra.

Still, despite the influx of new talent, it’s tough to see the D-backs leapfrogging the Dodgers for the top spot in the West. A wild-card spot is certainly a possibility, however, so don’t count them out when it comes to playoff time if they can remain healthy.

San Diego Padres (+1100)

The Padres will open spring training on a bit of a sour note after falling short in the Betts sweepstakes, as the star outfielder’s trade to the rival Dodgers serves as a worst-case scenario for San Diego. The arrival of Manny Machado failed to make much of a difference in the win column for the Friars, and another 70-something win campaign would be frustrating across the board for the Padres.

Jayce Tingler is set to make his managerial debut for a team looking for its first winning season since 2010 and first playoff appearance since 2006. San Diego did make some moves, though, with Tommy Pham and Trent Grisham set to give the offense more consistency and Zach Davies bolstering the rotation.

This club should hover around the .500 mark for the majority of the year, but I can’t see the Padres being a contender in the National League.

Colorado Rockies (+2800)

After a surprisingly busy offseason two years ago, the Rockies made no moves in free agency over the winter to improve after a dismal 71-91 season. That inactivity has caused some friction with star third baseman Nolan Arenado, who said he felt disrespected by the front office after his name was floated in trade rumors. Colorado has stated it will not be trading Arenado, but there is clearly some tension between the team and its superstar.

There are some nice pieces here, but it’s looking like it’s going to be a long season for baseball fans in the Mile High City. With the current assembled roster, the Rockies simply don’t have enough talent to be a factor in the NL West.

San Francisco Giants (+3300)

A new era is set to get underway in the Bay Area in light of longtime manager Bruce Bochy’s retirement. Ex-Philadelphia Phillies bench boss Gabe Kapler was brought in to help a franchise that is badly in need of a jump-start. The Giants made few impact moves this offseason, however, and Bumgarner walking in free agency leaves a gaping hole in the pitching staff.

San Francisco is going to attempt to avoid matching a team-worst four straight losing seasons, yet I wouldn’t bet on them finishing above .500. There’s a reason the Giants are +3300 and have a projected OVER/UNDER regular-season win total of 69.5, after all. This squad is one to avoid in futures markets.
