There is no better time to become a bookmaker as the World Series is on, football season is in full swing, and people are ready with their wagers. While sports is still not the same, it does not mean it would be any less exciting. For instance, the MLB World Series 2020 will be played in an almost empty ballpark, and a shortened schedule.
But in spite of all these changes, the World Series remains to be a crowd favorite in sites like DiscountPayPerHead. This year, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be facing the Tampa Bay Rays. Both teams coincidentally come from states that have both won championships in other sports. The LA Lakers won the NBA Championships, while Tampa Bay won the Stanley Cup.
World Series 2020
The World Series will be played at the home of the Texas Rangers: the Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Previously, teams would take turns playing in each other’s home field. But due to the pandemic, its much safer and more practical to hold it in a neutral place. Besides, the MLB playoffs are already in a semi-bubble in Texas since the playoffs.

Game 1: October 20, Tuesday 8:09 PM
Game 2: October 21, Wednesday 8:08 PM
Game 3: October 23, Friday, 8:08 PM
Game 4: October 24, Saturday, 8:08 PM
If needed, the additional game schedules are:
