2021 MLB Division Betting Previews

For a while there, it looked like Major League Baseball was not going to have a 2020 season. Thankfully, the MLB and the Players’ Union came together and elected to play a 60-game schedule. As a result, the Los Angeles Dodgers were crowned World Series Champions. It is unlikely that things will go 100% back to normal this coming season, but it seems like the MLB will play more than 60 games in 2021.

It appears that the National League is the Dodgers’ to lose. After winning the World Series this past season, LA is once again favored to win the National League Pennant. Some other teams that will be coming after the Dodgers include the Braves, Cubs, Padres, and Cardinals.

Meanwhile, the American League looks to be wide open right now. The Tampa Bay Rays reached their second World Series in franchise history this past season, but they will likely have trouble reaching the Fall Classic once again. The Yankees are currently favored to win the AL. After them, oddsmakers like the White Sox, Astros, Rays, and Angels. Tampa Bay will have a tough road getting back to the World Series in 2021.

The Coronavirus Pandemic will certainly have an impact on the upcoming MLB season. With limited fan attendance and league-wide COVID-19 precautions, the 2021 season maybe even more difficult to navigate than the 2020 season. Still, oddsmakers are going to continue to try and predict who will win each division in the MLB. Continue checking for all your MLB gambling questions.
