The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically reduced the amount of baseball we'll all get to enjoy this season (to be honest drastically reduced all sports) but the shortened season hasn't changed the favorites. The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers are tied as favorites to win the World Series and they're tied to win the most regular-season games as well.

Ceasars Sportbook has the Yankees and Dodgers as 7/2 favorites to win the World Series according to ESPN.com. If these two teams were to rekindle one of the greatest rivalries in the history of baseball at this year's World Series it would be their first time since the Dodgers beat the Yankees in the 1981 Series.

Meanwhile, BetOnline.com has the Yankees and Dodgers both leading MLB with projected 38.5 win seasons.
