Mookie Betts favored to win 2020 World Series MVP

As the Los Angeles Dodgers prepare to take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2020 World Series, a familiar name is listed as the odds-on favorite to take home the World Series MVP trophy.

Former Boston Red Sox star Mookie Betts is favored at +800 to be the hero for the Dodgers. Despite Betts' history of postseason struggles at the plate, those odds come as no surprise. He was the team's best hitter during the regular season with a slash line of .292/.366/.562 and 16 home runs.
