While we wait for the MLB season to start, it's a great time to take a look at the 2022 World Series odds. The Boston Red Sox's odds to win the World Series opened at +1800 and those odds will only get shorter, so you’re going to want to hop on these now before the season kicks off and the Red Sox start showing everyone they are ready to go all the way this year.
I think the Red Sox are going to win the 2022 World Series, so I am certainly in on these odds. But besides just believing it, I’ve seen some early signs this winter, despite few things happening, that they can propel themselves to a championship this season.
It’s always a great sign of big things to come for a team when the players are starting the year off saying this will be their biggest season yet. And we’re hearing that already from Tanner Houck.
Houck said recently he expects to be a big part of Boston’s pitching rotation and said, "I think 2022 will be my best year.”
"Just growing and really getting myself prepared for the longevity of the season and just knowing that I’m going to face the Yankees, the Blue Jays, the Rays, the Orioles, I’m going to face those teams probably three times, four times, whatever it ends up being however stuff lines up,” Houck said on WEEI’s Live BP Show.
That’s what you want to hear.
In addition to this, Sam Kennedy recently said the atmosphere at Fenway Park in October of last season was “more intense than in years past” and was a factor in the team’s success in that playoff run. Having been at Fenway Park for one of the ALCS games against the Houston Astros, I can confirm the crowd had an unrelenting energy that the players fed off and responded to in their play on the field. And the fans can do that again this season.
Kennedy added that ticket sales are through the roof, so the atmosphere and passion from the fans is primed to carry over from last fall. Kennedy said the team has already sold over a million tickets for the 2022 season and the organization has more new season ticket packages now than they've had in the last three offseasons.
From what little we know about how this MLB season will play out across the league, the tidbits we’re getting from the Red Sox make me want to run through a wall for this team. I can’t think of a reason not to set your sights on a Red Sox 2022 World Series ticket and can’t think of a better way to pass the time during this offseason than to jump on their World Series odds before they inevitably get shorter.
