Dodgers Open as Favorites to Win 2022 World Series

Although we are in a period of saber-rattling between owners and players, the World Series is almost certain to be played. There is too much money on the line for all interested parties. Last year the Atlanta Braves finally beat the baseball betting odds to win their first World Series since 1995. And for all the complaining about Big Market vs. Small Market teams, the fact remains that Major League Baseball has shown tremendous parity. Consider that there has not been a repeat World Series champion since the 1998-2000 New York Yankees.

2022 World Series SBG Betting Odds Analysis

Of course, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the most public team on the offshore betting board. In fact, the Dodgers have had 100-win seasons even as they lost money for the year on the board. Los Angeles has more credibility with the masses than any other club. They are far and away the winningest team in the past nine seasons. Additionally, the Dodgers are fresh on everyone’s mind as the 2020 World Series champions. Also popular with the public are the Houston Astros, Atlanta Braves, and New York Yankees. All of these teams are in the hung almost every year.

There have been eight different franchises to win the World Series for the past eight years. Fashion that sharps are loathe to bet on a team repeating as champions with the MLB odds. But most squares remain in the habit of betting on this year based on last year.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Since 2013 the Dodgers have made the MLB Playoffs every year. Last year Los Angeles’ string of National League West Division titles from 2013-2020 was ended by the San Francisco Giants. But with the biggest payroll in baseball and three World Series appearances in the past five seasons, LA is impossible to ignore. Thus, the question comes down to value when evaluating the Dodgers. Both on the futures market and each game day, no team is more expensive and public than Los Angeles.

Houston Astros

When it comes to winning on the level of the Dodgers, the Houston Astros comes the closest to matching it. To illustrate, the Astros have made the World Series three times in the past five years, with a win in 2017. In 2021 the Astros lost to the Atlanta Braves 4-2. Houston figures to contend again for the title with much of the championship core still on the roster. Further motivation comes from wanting to give manager Dusty Baker his first World Series crown as a Big-League manager.

Atlanta Braves

Compared to other years, the Braves’ 2020 regular season wasn’t easy. Atlanta wasn’t in a secure playoff position until the later stages of the campaign. But Atlanta’s loaded lineup was not to be denied. At the same time, their reputation as chokers was ended, at least for now!
