The road to negotiating an MLB 2020 season has been long and arduous. MLB officials have been in negotiations with the MLB Players Association for months. They have been trying to find a fair compromise that will allow them to hold a 2020 season safely. And since baseball is one of the most popular sports that you can bet on with a bookie pay per head, there are a lot of people waiting for updates.
The MLB so far says that there will be an abbreviated season. The compromise is that the season will have 60 games, and there will be a health and safety protocol to be followed. This will be done to ensure that everyone stays healthy and safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
MLB 2020 Season
We will most likely see action on the MLB soon, as teams are already returning for a second round of spring training. The schedule for the opening of the MLB is July 23. As of now, no schedule has been released yet. Most likely, the league will be releasing the schedule by next week. When this happens, you can expect live betting platform providers to start offering lines for bookies on upcoming MLB games.
So far, this is what we know. There will be 40 games within the division, and 20 interleague games. Teams will only meet teams from other divisions with its corresponding geographic division to minimize travel risks. This will also eliminate cross-country travel during the regular season.
The MLB Opening Day will be a game against the World Series Champions against the Yankees at Nationals Park. The Red Sox will be playing at Fenway Park, and will play without Mookie Betts as they traded him to the Dodgers. In the coming days, we will be hearing more about more concrete plans, and hopefully, a final schedule for the season. When that happens, your sports betting software can help you manage your MLB wagers.
