A Look at the 8 Teams Seeing the Most World Series Betting Action

There are eight teams that have been favorites amongst bettors throughout this offseason. Here is a look at how each team could end up finishing as the 2022 World Series Champions and our pick as the best World Series futures bet to make today.

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (+550)

Reason Why They Could Win: Despite the exits so far this off-season the Dodgers are still one of the top teams in the league. Even without Max Scherzer they still feature a rotation that is one of the best in the league and they still have a lineup full of young superstars who are well on their way to breaking out.

2. Houston Astros (+700)

Reason Why They Could Win: They have a dangerous lineup, with or without Carlos Correa. Justin Verlander returns to head up a rotation that dominates nearly every AL team comes across. If they manage to retain Carlos Correa they can continue to pair him with Jose Altuve and continue to be one of the most dangerous hitting teams in the league as well.

3. Chicago White Sox (+1000)

Reason Why They Could Win: A young core that has only improved as this off-season has progressed. The White Sox are a team that dominated a terrible AL Central in 2021 and they are much improved since last year they still feature a young core with a dominant lineup and a serviceable rotation. It could be a fun year on the southside of Chicago as the White Sox will look to win their first world championship in 17 years.

4. Toronto Blue Jays (+1200)

Reason Why They Could Win: A great pitching staff combined with a fantastic lineup full of future stars. Guys like Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio, and Vladimir Guerrero Junior make up the next big three in the league that will dominate in my opinion. Along with a complement piece like George Springer the Blue Jays boast one of the best lineups in major league baseball. They will be looking to party like it’s 1993 again north of the border in Canada if the Blue Jays can bring home a title this year.

5. New York Yankees (+1200)

Reason Why They Could Win: They are the Yankees and even though they haven’t spent money yet, they certainly will. Even though they failed to land Corey Seager, they are still in the market for Trevor Story and Carlos Correa. They still have one of the top arms in the league in Gerrit Cole. Combining them with Aaron Judge and Gio Stanton still makes the New York Yankees one of the best and most dangerous teams in all of Major League Baseball.

6. Atlanta Braves (+1400)

Reason Why They Could Win: a healthy Ronald Acuna Jr. and Freddie Freeman. The Braves won the World Series without Ronald Acuna Jr. which should scare every other team in the league. When he went down everyone wrote Atlanta off and they pulled together led by Eddie Rosario and Freddie Freeman to bring home the Braves' first World Series since 1995. If Eddie Rosario returns and Acuna can stay healthy the Braves will be a sure-fire favorite to repeat in 2022.

7. Tampa Bay Rays (+1400)

Reason Why They Could Win: Arozarena, among other reasons. A great pitching staff to accompany the young hard-hitting lineup. The Tampa Bay Rays are the last piece of the puzzle to bring the title home to Tampa after the Bucs and Lightning have done it. They have been on the doorstep several times and just have not been able to get into the building. 2022 could be the year for the Tampa Bay Rays to bring home a title to the brand new title town.

8. Milwaukee Brewers (+1400)

Reason Why They Could Win: Corbin Burnes and the lineup of hard-hitting young stars to compliment him. Besides Burnes in the rotation, they also have Josh Hader to compliment him in the back end of the bullpen. As long as Christian Yelich stays healthy the Brewers are probably the most complete team in the NL Central. They have a chance to be very active in the free agency market to improve their team even more as this off-season progresses and the lockout ends.

Our Pick for Best Bet for the 2022 World Series: Toronto Blues Jays at +1200 Odds
