- Dodgers still overwhelming favorite as first team to reach 80 wins
- Astros gaining momentum in A.L. with Yankees faltering
- Expanding wild card could make the stretch run interesting
In this article, we take a look at the MLB Vegas odds for the 2022 World Series.
The current odds still favor the Los Angeles Dodgers, but they’ve been dealt a blow losing Walker Buehler for the season with an elbow injury and Clayton Kershaw fighting through back issues. The Juan Soto trade has yet to pay huge dividends for San Diego, and in fact, has made them worse as they are in danger of falling out of the wild card spot. The Mets with their star-studded pitching staff and the Cardinals with their high-powered offense could legitimately challenge L.A. in the National League.
The American League suddenly looks like the Astros’ to lose. The Yankees have stumbled and posted one of the three worst records in the majors in the weeks following the All-Star break. Many people like Seattle as a longshot World Series candidate and even Baltimore has yet to fall off the wild card pace just yet.

Given their incredible pitching depth, which includes the likes of Jacob deGrom (pictured above) and Max Scherzer, it would be fair to consider the New York Mets as genuine contenders to go all the way this season.
Currently priced at a decent +560, we think the odds for this market are a little too good to pass up.
