Thanks to the lockout, the 2022 MLB season had a late start but is finally underway after a long offseason. That means it’s time to start thinking about who will win the World Series. The odds for the 2022 World Series Champion are available at many sportsbooks, and a few teams stand out above the rest. We will be monitoring the latest odds for every team to win the 2022 World Series.
The MLB is back, and with a 12-team playoff this year, the competition is more intense than ever. Twelve teams, 6 per league, will make the postseason, with the top 2 clubs getting byes into the second round. Additional teams in the playoffs mean more teams are vying for the World Series title. The regular season is scheduled to conclude Wednesday, Oct. 5, so we have a lot of time for things to shake out.
MLB futures betting always attracts a lot of action. It gives fans additional reason to cheer and root for their team. We’ll keep the latest 2022 World Series betting odds updated for each team all season long.
Who was the favorite to win the 2022 MLB World Series at the beginning of the season?
The Dodgers were the top contender to win the 2022 World Series at the beginning of the season. Since then, they have remained the favorites, though other teams have also improved their odds.
Because of some really great offseason roster changes, the Los Angeles Dodgers were considered favorites, primarily because of their offense and players like Mookie Betts, Trea Turner, and Freddie Freeman.
Who is the current favorite to win the world series?
The Dodgers and New York Yankees are the favorite to win the 2022 World Series at +450. The Dodgers currently have over a 95% chance of making the playoffs. The Dodgers have made the NLCS in five of the last six seasons and won the National League pennant three times and a World Series in 2020. The Yankees have been making a run leading up to the 2022 All Star break.
The Dodgers’ offense is strong, with players like Freddie Freeman joining the team in the offseason. The Dodgers are ninth in the league in ISO at .152 and a relatively low strikeout percentage at 21.3%. The Dodgers’ pitching staff is their weakest point, having lost Max Scherzer (traded to the Mets) and Trevor Baur (MLB suspension). Still, Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and Julio Urias have carried it well so far. Buehler and Kershaw both have relatively low ERAs, and the Dodgers’ pitching staff is averaging a 23.7% strikeout rate.
If the team can stay healthy, they should continue to be in an excellent position to make a run at the World Series.
