New York Yankees (+425 at Bovada)
It’s hard not to like the Yankees at +425? As of this writing, the Yankees lead the majors with 115 in home runs. MVP front-runner Aaron Judge has an MLB-best 27 home runs, a .663 slugging percentage, and 1.042 OPS. (Judge also leads the AL with 57 runs, and his .302 batting average ranks 18th).
Surprisingly, the Yankees have also thrived on the mound. They hold the MLB lead in ERA (2.90), WHIP (1.06), and OBA (.213), and they’ve allowed just 60 home runs (third-best in the majors)
The Yankees were the first team to reach 50 wins this season (51-18), and they’re 29-7 at home. If injuries don’t deplete them like they always seem to in recent years, we could easily see the Yankees winning the World Series for the first time since 2009.
Los Angeles Dodgers (+450 at Everygame)
Few should be surprised that the Dodgers are at +450 to win the 2022 World Series at Everygame.
As far as current odds to win the National League, it is the Los Angeles Dodgers (+225 at BetOnline) and everyone else. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts even went so far as to say that his team would win the World Series this fall. Considering how loaded their roster is, the pressure is on them to deliver on that promise.
The Dodgers have been among the favorites to win the World Series for years but they only have one World Series win to show for it (2020 and it comes with the asterisk of being a shortened season). Los Angeles needs to go all the way in a traditional season to truly silence their doubters and critics.
This team almost made it back to the World Series last year, losing to the Braves in the NLCS. Almost all of their ridiculously talented roster from 2021 is back. They did lose ace starter Max Scherzer, which hurts, but they still boast some nasty arms in Walker Buehler, Julio Urias, Tony Gonsolin and Clayton Kershaw.
The latter’s health will be key and the Dodgers might try to acquire additional pitching depth before the trade deadline.
Their real splash came when they landed former Braves star first baseman Freddie Freeman. His signing made a statement and he joined a lineup that already had Mookie Betts, Trea Turner, Max Muncy, Justin Turner, Cody Bellinger and Will Smith. This team is loaded offensively and they can win it all.
San Diego Padres (+1400 at Bovada)
The Padres are a bit overlooked because they’re in the NL West with Dodgers and Giants but they have to be considered sleeper candidates to win the World Series. San Diego has the fifth-best record in the majors and their best player Fernando Tatis Jr. (left wrist) hasn’t even played this season yet.
Manny Machado has been playing like an MVP, Eric Hosmer and Jurickson Profar have stepped up their games and Joe Musgrove is looking like a Cy Young candidate. Rookie starter MacKenzie Gore has also been phenomenal. If the Padres get Fernando Tatis Jr. back then you have to like their chances in the postseason.
