NL East Betting Odds & Forecast
2020 NL East Division Odds
This is set to be the most difficult division to navigate in baseball. The New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, Washington Nationals, and Philadelphia Phillies are all projected to win between 85 and 90 games, but at least one of these teams is guaranteed to be left out of the playoffs.
2020 National League Pennant Odds
Washington has largely decided to run it back with almost its entire team save Anthony Rendon. The Nationals have a staff that is the envy of the sport, and two great, young bats in the lineup. If one or two players can overachieve and the team can stay healthy, the Nationals have a solid chance at repeating.
Following a disappointing 2019 season with high expectations, the Phillies look to rebound and make it to the top of the NL East. (AP)
2020 World Series Odds
Washington is out to become the first franchise to win consecutive World Series crowns since the New York Yankees won three straight titles between 1998 and 2000. The Nationals have a puncher’s chance to repeat the feat, thanks to the best one-two combination of starters in MLB between Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.

2020 NL East MVP Contenders
2018 NL Rookie of the Year Acuna, Jr is a key component of the Braves lineup. He scored 127 runs last year with 37 stolen bases, 41 home runs, and 101 runs batted in. Soto came up big for the Nationals throughout the regular season and postseason even though he was just 20 years old. His .949 OPS was the second-best on the team, and he showed excellent plate discipline for a young player with 108 walks.
2020 NL East Cy Young Contenders
deGrom, the 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, has won the last two NL Cy Young Awards, and he has averaged 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings over the last two seasons while throwing more than 200 innings. Strasburg has been solid for over a decade, and he is coming off one of his strongest seasons. He posted a career-best 18-6 record in 33 starts, pitching 209 innings and striking out 251 batters. Strasburg had a 1.038 WHIP and placed fifth in the NL Cy Young voting.

Best Bets/Value for Individual Awards
Best Bet MVP: Bryce Harper, Phillies (18/1)
Best Bet Cy Young: Max Scherzer, Nationals (4/1)
Best Bet Rookie of Year: Cristian Pache, Braves (25/1)
Harper didn’t have a stellar first season in the City of Brotherly Love. After signing a massive 13-year, $330 million contract, he failed to finish with an OPS over .900, and he struck out a career-high 178 times. Harper is entering the prime of his career, and Philadelphia needs the six-time All-Star to hit like he did in Washington to break its playoff drought.
Scherzer has been the best pitcher of the last decade and has finished in the top five of the Cy Young Award voting in each of the last seven seasons, winning the award three times. He has shown no signs of slowing down after posting a 12.7 K/9 in 2019, and his 2.45 FIP and 7.36 K/BB rate were the best in the big leagues.Odds Subject to Change
