2022 World Series Odds

We're about six weeks into the new MLB season, and things at the top of the World Series odds board look like we expected -- the Dodgers are the favorite at PointsBet, followed by the Yankees, Astros and Mets

Here are some of the biggest movers up the board so far:

  • The Mets had dropped to +1400 after the team announced in early April that ace Jacob deGrom would be shut down for a month with a shoulder injury. They've responded by building a nearly double-digit game lead in the NL East, and have been bumped up by most sportsbooks to around +800, even with Max Scherzer out for a few months.
  • Are the Angels finally living up to their potential? They're hanging tough with the Astros in the AL West and have been bumped up from +3000 to +2000.
  • The Twins are playing really good baseball through the first quarter of the season, with a small lead in the AL Central. They've gone from north of +5000 depending on the sportsbook to +2200 at PointsBet.

Of course, some teams had to fall as a result.

  • The Red Sox have really struggled early on and are already 10+ games back from first in the AL East. They've fallen from +2200 to +5000.
  • The Blue Jays have also taken a slight dip, from second favorite at +800 to the fifth betting choice at +1000. A lot of their young bats who thrived last season haven't gotten going yet.

Who Is the World Series Favorite?

1. Dodgers logoLA Dodgers (+450)

The Dodgers, the 2020 MLB champs, are the favorite for yet another season, despite losing to the Braves in the playoffs this past season. They added Freddie Freeman this offseason, lost Corey Seager to the Rangers, but continue to boast one of the deepest rosters in baseball.

So far in 2022, it's been more of the same. The Dodgers have the best run differential in baseball through the first six weeks -- 40 runs better than anyone in the National League.

2. Yankees logoNY Yankees (+600)

The Yankees were among the first five MLB betting choices entering this season but never quite put it all together and lost in the Wild Card Game to the Red Sox. They shipped Gary Sanchez to Minnesota and have been quiet the rest of the offseason, so they've were passed in World Series odds by the Blue Jays and Braves.

But New York quickly proved it should have been right behind the Dodgers all along. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are off to monstrous starts, and the Bronx Bombers have the most wins in the majors. Their run differential is second only to the Dodgers, so there's nothing fluky there so far.

3. Astros logoHOU Astros (+750)

All the controversy surrounding the Astros tempered expectations for them entering this year but an MLB World Series run proves they’re still one of the best teams in baseball. Carlos Correa is gone, but much of the core remains, and players like Kyle Tucker took a big step forward. Justin Verlander has been dominant to start the year, and is a Cy Young favorite.

4. Mets logoNY Mets (+800)

There’s renewed hope in Queens after the offseason additions of Max Scherzer, Starling Marte and more, but the Jacob deGrom injury dropped them from 11-1 to 14-1 at PointsBet before the season. It hasn't mattered much, as Buck Showalter has New York playing some really good baseball, even without their two best pitchers.

The Mets have the second-best run differential in the National League behind only the Dodgers.

5. Blue Jays logoTOR Blue Jays (+1000)

The Blue Jays’ elite offense will keep them in a lot of games, and with players like Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette still entering their primes, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Toronto in the postseason this year and contending. Their World Series odds dropped from around +1300 to +800 in the leadup to the season, making them the second favorite. But a pedestrian start by their standards has dropped the Blue Jays to fifth on the board at +1000.
