After a dominant 2020, the Dodgers are the betting favorite to repeat a World Series victory in 2021.

The 2020 season was much different than any season before it. The regular season was only 60 games, and more than half (16 of 30) of the teams made the postseason.

Looking at those 16 playoff teams, which ones are the most likely to return in 2021? I’ll take a stab at predicting from most likely to least likely. As a subjective list, it can easily be debated where teams belong. Also, there will be a better idea of the standing of each team after the offseason (also, will MLB stay with 16 playoff teams or go back to the old format in 2021?).

1

Los Angeles Dodgers

They finished 2020 with a 43-17 record, led the majors in runs, gave up the second-least, and won their first World Series since 1988.

2

New York Yankees

The team should be getting back Luis Severino a couple of months into the 2021 season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them offer a boatload of money to J.T. Realmuto due to the struggles of catcher Gary Sanchez.
