With the MLB 2022 regular season in full swing, the month of April is coming to a close and we are closely approaching the month of May. Some teams are already in great shape to make the playoffs potentially and some are potentially ready to dig themselves out of a rut.
It will be a long summer for some teams also. However, the MLB lines have been changing daily and weekly. Who are some of the MLB teams with lower odds that are worth betting on to win the 2022 World Series?
San Francisco Giants +1800
It appears as if the San Francisco Giants were no fluke last season under manager Gabe Kapler. San Francisco relies on analytics to win a ton of ball games. The Giants continue to get the job done and they are going to be in the race with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the National League West title once again.
San Francisco had the best record in baseball a season ago. They appear they have headed towards that track once again this season. The San Francisco Giants have a very underrated starting rotation that is led by Logan Webb, but their bullpen seems to be a massive concern though.
San Francisco has three key veterans in that clubhouse in Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt, and Brandon Crawford. All three of those guys play tremendous defense in the field. Mike Yastrzemski is also another reliable baseball player in that clubhouse. They have not won it all since 2014 against the Kansas City Royals in seven games.
Philadelphia Phillies +2200
The Philadelphia Phillies have had a lot of things go wrong to start the 2022 MLB regular season. They don’t have the pitching they thought they were going to have. Although Aaron Nola hasn’t seemed to disappoint, Zach Wheeler hasn’t pitched the same as he did last year.
The defense in the field has been a total disaster and so has the bullpen. Roger Suarez and Jeurys Familia seem to be unreliable and they are going to have to change that around in a hurry. There is talent on this roster because of players like Nick Castellanos, Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, Didi Gregorius, J.T. Realmuto, and Rhys Hoskins.
Joe Giradi is the manager of this baseball team and they will get hot at some point and potentially make a run at a wild card spot in the National League. It is early on in the 2022 MLB regular season, but catching the New York Mets may seem to be a tough feat for them this year.
St. Louis Cardinals +2500
The St. Louis Cardinals’ only path to the MLB playoffs this year it seems like is winning the National League Central division. St. Louis has talent on this roster, but it seems to be underwhelming at the start of the 2022 MLB regular season.
The Cardinals’ manager is Oliver Marmol. He is in his first year as the team’s manager. The ballclub has tons of talent like Nolan Arenado, Harrison Bader, and Paul Goldschmidt. They had tons of gold glovers on this roster last season.
Mike Mikolas is the top ace in this starting rotation. The bullpen has been very good for the most part. They usually make the playoffs more times than they miss it. The St. Louis Cardinals could be a dark horse in the National League later on this year.
Colorado Rockies +20000
The Colorado Rockies have been one of the biggest surprises to start the 2022 MLB regular season. Colorado has been hitting the baseball very well. Kris Bryant has helped bolster this offense and Charlie Blackmon is still around in the clubhouse.
Their pitching has been a lot better to start and it needs to stay that way. The only problem is that the NL West is loaded. Their manager is Bud Black.
