MLB World Series odds: Favorites to win title, AL, NL originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
With the 2022 MLB All-Star Game in the books, the push for a World Series title begins now.
Over the final few months of the regular season, teams will be scrapping for the best possible seed – and perhaps even a first-round bye if they have the best record in their league.
So, which teams could win the American and National League and possibly win the World Series? Here’s a look at the teams that are favored to achieve big things this season, with all odds provided by our betting partner, PointsBet:
Who is favored to win the American League in 2022?
To no surprise, the New York Yankees are the early favorites to win the American League in 2022. They have the best record in the league and have the talent and depth to go far in the postseason. Right behind them are the Houston Astros, who continue to be in the conversation year in and year out.
Here’s a look at the nine teams with the best odds to win the AL:
New York Yankees: +150
Houston Astros: +220
Toronto Blue Jays: +800
Tampa Bay Rays: +1400
Seattle Mariners: +1600
Minnesota Twins: +2000
Cleveland Guardians: +4000
After Cleveland, the remaining six teams have odds of at least +10000 or higher to pull an unlikely miracle and win the AL.
Who is favored to win the National League in 2022?
The race in the NL is much tighter, with the Los Angeles Dodgers leading the pack. The Atlanta Braves, last year’s pennant holder, are currently in third, while the New York Mets are hoping to end a five-year playoff drought and a six-year pennant drought.
