Once the overwhelming favorite in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers are now long shots to make the 2020 World Series.

Los Angeles is on the brink of elimination in the NLCS, falling into a 3-1 series hole Thursday night. With their season on the line Friday night in Game 5, the Dodgers are +330 underdogs to come back and win the NL pennant, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Atlanta has -435 odds to win the NLCS.

The Dodgers have +500 odds to win the World Series. The Braves are +135 favorites, just ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays, who have +160 championship odds. 

Tampa Bay has a 3-2 series lead over the Houston Astros in the ALCS. Houston has +850 odds to win the World Series and is looking to come back from what was a 3-0 series hole.

Clayton Kershaw had yet another playoff disappointment in Game 4. With the Braves and Dodgers tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, the three-time NL Cy Young winner gave Atlanta the lead without getting an out. Kershaw surrendered four runs and eight baserunners in five innings.

The Dodgers won three more games than any other team in the 60-game regular season. Los Angeles’ 43-17 record put them eight games ahead of Atlanta. 

With an MLB-best 106 wins last year, Los Angeles didn’t make it beyond the NLDS. Kershaw was in the spotlight, again, surrendering a pair of home runs in the eighth inning of Game 5 that allowed the Washington Nationals to tie the game at 3-3. Washington took the lead for good in the 10th inning, eliminating LA.

The Dodgers were defeated in both the 2017 and 2018 World Series. Los Angeles has won eight straight NL West titles, but its last World Series championship came in 1988.
