The Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies are set to battle it out in the 2022 World Series, starting this Friday in Houston. The Astros are favourites after posting an impressive 106-56 record to finish atop the American League, and then sweeping the Mariners and Yankees in the ALDS and ALCS, respectively, to book their spot in the World Series. The Phillies did not have as dominant of a regular season, squeaking into the final wild card spot in the National League, but they’ve had an almost as impressive postseason run eliminating the Cardinals, Braves and Padres, while amassing a 9-2 record in these playoffs to reach the finals.
In this article I’ll look at the series odds, give my prediction and also provide a simple three step guide for any Canadians new to betting online that would like to bet on this years World Series.
World Series Series Odds
Here are the odds for the series from SportsInteraction.com, our top rated betting site for Canadians:
- Houston Astros 1.51
- Philadelphia Phillies 2.46
SIA also has several other futures bets that you can make including the series correct score, series total games, World Series MVP and more. You can find all of the odds at Sports Interaction by selecting ‘Baseball’ -> ‘MLB’ -> ‘Futures’.
Sports Interaction also has odds for each individual game in the World Series. You can find these by selecting ‘Baseball’ -> ‘MLB’ -> ‘World Series’. Here are the betting lines for game 1:
I’m going with the Astros at odds of 1.51 to get the job done this year after falling to the Braves as favourites in last years World Series.
The return of Justin Verlander this year, as arguably the best pitcher in baseball at age 39, has given the Astros an experienced superstar ace to go along with their other solid pitching staff including Framber Valdez, Cristian Javier and Lance McCullers. The Astros bats haven’t even been firing that much this postseason and it hasn’t mattered with the Astros still going 7-0 in these playoffs. Making quick work of the Astros will allow Houston to have a fully rested pitching corps ready to bring the heat to the Phillies batters. Aaron Nola and Zach Wheeler are solid pitchers, but the Phillies starting pitcher rotation drops off after that. The Phillies will have the worse starting pitcher on the mound in every game this series. That makes for a tough series to win.
