The trade of Mookie Betts prompted an adjustment in next season's World Series odds.

"There are only about 10 players that can impact a team's futures odds and win total, and Mookie Betts is certainly one of them," said Robert Cooper, lines manager at SportsBetting.ag. "He's a five-tool, everyday player that might finally get the Dodgers over the hump. We're already seeing more L.A. money from pro bettors."

On Monday this week, SportsBetting had the Dodgers with 6/1 World Series odds, but they dropped to 4/1 following the trade. L.A.'s pennant odds fell from 3/1 down to 2/1, and the team's win total jumped two games from 98.5 to 100.5.

On the Red Sox side, their championship chances went from 25/1 to 33/1 and their victory total 88.5 to 86.5.

The Yankees remain the 2020 World Series favorites with 7/2 odds.
