The Los Angeles Dodgers are the favorites to win the World Series in 2022 with +500 odds. The Dodgers finished this season with a stellar 106-56 record. They won the World Series in 2020 but their journey to repeat as champions ended early this year when the Braves, this year’s winner, knocked them off in the NLCS.
The Houston Astros, this year’s World Series runner-up, come in next with +800 odds. They, of course, lost their World Series bid to the Braves in six games.
The 2021 champion Braves are next on the list at +1000, as they look to repeat next season with a healthy Ronald Acuna Jr. back in the lineup and Mike Soroka on the mound. They’re tied with the New York Yankees (+1000), who had an early exit from this year’s playoffs when the Boston Red Sox knocked them out in the wild card game.
One NL sleeper team I see here could be the Phillies at +3500. Dave Dombrowski said recently he thinks this team can win it all in 2022 and if he and ownership are willing to spend, this team could be dominant with Bryce Harper playing at an MVP level.
In the AL, I would look at the Red Sox (+1800), of course, but also wouldn’t mind the value in the Rays at +1600 after winning the AL East in 2021 but falling just short of making their second straight World Series appearance.
As a long shot, I've got a feeling about the Tigers at +5000. Because why not them? They haven't won a World Series since 1984, so they're due and if they go after a star like Carlos Correa this offseason, that could jumpstart that lineup.
