Congratulations to the Atlanta Braves for winning their second World Series and first since 1995. Their team overcame so many obstacles and beat the toughest teams in the entire league.

The Top Dogs Heading Into 2022

The Los Angeles Dodgers remain one of the most talented and deep rosters in the entire MLB, so I am not surprised to see them at the top of the leaderboard.

The reigning champs will make their odds debut at 4th on this list, as they have a lot of work to do in free agency.

This year’s runner ups in the World Series are second on the list being the Astros. They are followed by the New York Yankees as well.

Los Angeles Dodgers (+500)

The Dodgers have a lot of players that are heading into free agency and could be going to another team.

That wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, as the Dodgers are probably the most active team when it comes to free agency. It also doesn’t hurt that they are in Los Angeles.

I fully expect the Dodgers to assemble another super team for this upcoming season, as they try to win another ring.

Some impact players that are heading into free agency include SP Clayton Kershaw, RP Kenley Jansen, SS Corey Seager, SP Max Scherzer, SP David Price, and more.

A lot of them can make their way back to LA, but there is a chance that another team looks more appealing to them.

Houston Astros (+650)

The Astros came up two games short of a World Series victory and they are going to want to come right back for another try in 2022.

They have some big free agents that could be on the move this season, but a lot of their core should be solid. SS Carlos Correa, SP Justin Verlander, RP Kendall Graveman and a few others could be in new places next season.

Even if they lose all 3 of those impact players, this roster should still be good enough to make another run at it.

New York Yankees (+950)

The Yankees are another team who have the power to land big name players in free agency.

Their roster is stacked already, and they just need to fill in some weak spots to make it far in the postseason. The Red Sox and Rays finished above them in the AL East this season, but the Yankees could very well make it to the postseason this upcoming year.

The best move the Yankees can make in the offseason is resigning 1B Anthony Rizzo.

Rizzo was a nice spark to their lineup ever since last year’s trade deadline and can really round out this Yankee lineup. The Yankees have a ton of righties and Rizzo fits in very nicely.

The Yankees have had trouble getting production from their first baseman, as many of them have gotten injured or have underperformed.

There won’t be a lot of seasons where the Yankees don’t make the postseason, and they could make it all the way to the World Series in 2022.

Atlanta Braves (+1100)

The Braves were incredible this season and they 100% earned their rings. I would like to credit their activity at the trade deadline for a major reason why they were able to win this year.

Jorge Soler was so good that he won WS MVP, while Joc Pederson, Adam Duvall, Eddie Rosario, and more played huge roles in their teams’ success.

I would expect the Braves to try and re-sign a handful of these players, but getting back Ronald Acuna Jr. means that one or more of their trade deadline acquisitions can be on their way out.

The Braves also have to try and re-sign star first baseman Freddie Freeman, as losing him would be a major blow to their lineup. The champs have a lot of work to do this offseason, but they have time to enjoy this championship win for now.

Top Sleepers Heading Into 2022

Like we just saw with the Braves, no team is indestructible.

The Dodgers had a major super team this past season, but they didn’t even win first in their own division. I loved how active the Braves were making moves to be competitive and it paid off big time.

Here are some other teams who could be next year’s edition of the 2021 Atlanta Braves.

Tampa Bay Rays (+1400)

The Rays were just in the World Series in 2020, before falling 4-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers. They are still a very talented and young team with a front office that is very active.

They won 100 games in 2021 and could hit triple digits again in 2022.

They have a great core of young players, but they also have a solid number of veterans who play better than what they are paid. The Rays are amazing at finding cheap, valuable players who will be able to produce for them in a major way.

I fully expect the Rays to be in for another great 2022, making them a solid sleeper pick to win the 2022 World Series.

Like I said earlier, the Braves made all the right moves at the trade deadline and the Rays have a history of nailing trades.

They could be the next team to pull it off.

San Diego Padres (+1600)

The Padres are a very solid team, but they got outplayed by the Braves at the trade deadline.

When Fernando Tatis went down with a long-term injury, the Padres didn’t acquire too many valuable players at the trade deadline, and they ended up missing the postseason.

The Braves lost Ronald Acuna in 2021 and still won the World Series, so that could have been the Padres last season.

They have a very solid core in Tatis, Manny Machado, Yu Darvish, and more and could get some more pieces in the offseason and via trade.

This team looks to be a solid sleeper bet for 2021, but they still have a lot of work ahead of them.

San Francisco Giants (+1800)

The Giants are a great sleeper team for next season’s World Series. They literally won the most regular season games out of anyone last year, so why couldn’t they do it in 2022?

They didn’t even seem ready to compete at such a high level in 2021, yet they were the best regular season team. They have a good amount of top end prospects, who could make an impact as early as next season.

I expect them to try and land some big free agents in the offseason and more in trades, but a good move for them right now would be to extend Kris Bryant.

They traded for him at the trade deadline, and they are a really great fit together.

The Giants proved themselves as very capable competitors and they can make big moves this offseason to get them all the way to a World Series in 2022.

Recapping the Early 2022 World Series Odds

If you are dying to get back into the MLB action already, the 2022 World Series odds are a great place to start.

The Braves were underdogs to win it all and yet they did. Will another underdog be able to win the 2022 crown? Or will one of the top dogs prove themselves and win it all?

Season long bets are always very hard since there is so much that can go on between now and the time of the event. But on the contrary, this might be the best odds you can get for a certain team.
