The Associated Press were told that that the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals are set to meet on “Opening Day” from Nationals Park in D.C and could possibly be joined by a couple other matchups.

MLB Futures Betting Market

The opener will certainly have plenty of buzz due to the hiatus from the pandemic-delayed season, plus the Nationals are the defending World Series Champions and the Yankees are easily the most popular MLB team – globally.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened odds on the expected matchup and odds are subject to change. The SuperBook is based out of Las Vegas, Nevada but is planning to expand into Colorado this July. Bettors in both Nevada and the Centennial State can take advantage of their popular betting markets.
