Dodgers Remain Public Choice for 2022 MLB World Series

At the beginning of the season, the masses bet on the past with the baseball betting odds. Following nine consecutive playoff appearances and three National League pennants in five years, the Dodgers are favored to win the World Series. But there are plenty of other strong choices for bargain hunters seeking a good price and a capable team. Major League Baseball is in an era of unprecedented parity. There has not been a repeat World Series champion since the 2000 New York Yankees. If that trend continues, you can rule out the 2021 World Series Champion Atlanta Braves.

2022 World Series Championship SBG Betting Odds Analysis

Last year the Braves ended their playoff jinx with the Commissioner’s Trophy. Atlanta is one of the most consistent winners in offshore betting. However, gamblers are not convinced of a repeat. Especially with a strong Dodgers team with the second-highest payroll in the game. First for payroll are the upstart New York Mets. New York is getting plenty of hype entering the season. But there is nothing new about that.

Los Angeles Dodgers +492

As a franchise that prints money, the Dodgers can afford to acquire anyone they like. Thus, last month, Los Angeles picked up slugger Freddie Freeman from the Atlanta Braves. And run production will be needed to offset a good but no longer great pitching staff.

Toronto Blue Jays +987

Offseason acquisitions Kevin Gausman, Matt Chapman, and Yusei Kikuchi add to an already impressive club. Toronto will bring a strong lineup and enough pitching to emerge as a serious American League East contender. Fashion that the betting public is catching on to this with a recent betting surge.

Houston Astros +1000

On the whole, the Astros had a relatively quiet offseason. But that does not concern a gambling public already sold on Houston. Overall, the Astros have one of baseball’s best and most experienced rosters. Most important of all is the return of Justin Verlander from Tommy John’s surgery.

New York Mets +1050

To begin with, the Mets are getting the most preseason hype and betting action of any team. Problematic is that the media is quick to hype the Mets every year. Also, New York boasts a rabid and passionate fan base. A deeper dive reveals Max Scherzer, Chris Bassitt, Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar, and March Canha, all arriving in a productive offseason. Namely, Steve Cohen is an owner spending freely for a title. New York could boast the best starting rotation in baseball. Of major concern is if the lineup can improve from its popgun production of 2021.
