The NL West is going to more be a battle of who will finish in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. The winner of the division is fairly well set in stone. The one team that should finish in last place will be the San Francisco Giants. During the off season the Giants lost Bumgarner to the division rival Diamondbacks. The lack of pitching combined with the complete lack of offense will definitely cost the Giants any chance.
With the Rockies them and the Padres did not do well enough in the off season to really be seen as a major threat. The Rockies, still struggle with their pitching in the season and that will cost them quite a few wins as Colorado only has a couple of good pitchers on the staff. The Padres have a good bit of talent on the roster, but the Padres still do not have a complete amount of talent that could win the division.
Odds to win 2020 NL West

- Colorado Rockies +2800
- Los Angeles Dodgers -900
- San Diego Padres +1100
- San Francisco Giants +5000
The division is the Dodgers to win and the only real threat will be the Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks have a good pitching staff and will end up getting the Dodgers a good run for the money. However, the Diamondbacks do not have the bullpen depth to run the gauntlet to the division crown in the season. Look for the Dodgers, though, with their well rounded roster and balanced offensive attack to bring home the NL West. NL West Division winner, Los Angeles Dodgers -900.
