Everybody knows about the World Series, right? It’s the main event in baseball.
We already know that this MLB season has been different.
The World Series will look different in 2020 because there won’t be as many fans in the stadium cheering on their favorite team. Also, nobody will be able to play at their home field. Some players have also decided not to participate in this season.
The teams that made it to the World Series this year are the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays.
In 2017, the Los Angeles Dodgers made it to the World Series but lost to the Houston Astros. So this time the Dodgers hope to capitalize on their previous experience.
The last time the Tampa Bay Rays made it to the World Series was in 2008. Things are different for Tampa Bay because some people may have retired.
I’m really excited to watch the World Series so I made some predictions that I want to share with you.
My 2020 World Series Predictions

Who Will Win The 2020 World Series?
I think the Los Angeles Dodgers will win the 2020 World Series because I believe they are better than the Tampa Bay Rays and have more baseball sense.
Also, in their previous games against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Dodgers have won more than half of those games.
I predict that the Los Angeles Dodgers will win the World Series 4-2.
