Colorado Blackies’ Charlie Blackmon (19) and Nolan Arenado, right, walk through the dugout ahead of a spring training baseball game against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, March 3, 2020 in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Rockies beat the Cubs 11-10.

Owners of Major League Baseball approved a proposal to the players’ union on Monday to begin the baseball season around July 4. What does this mean for the Rockies’ chances?

Colorado is a chance to win the World Series 2020 with 160-to-1 odds, according to oddsmaker SportsBettingDime, which places them 23rd among 30 MLB teams. The Dodgers prefer 23/4, slightly better than the Yankees (6/1). At the bottom, the Orioles are at 600/1.

The probability that there will be no World Series: 3/2.

To make the playoffs, the Rockies have 6/1 odds, making them 12th out of 15 National League teams.

For earnings totals, Colorado has an over-under of 35.5.
