MLB odds: Braves, Dodgers, Blue Jays, and Astros lead pennant futures

With two weeks down in the MLB season, it’s time for future bettors to take a look at the lines in the pennant races for both the leagues.

Will the Houston Astros — winners of three of the last five AL pennants — continue their recent stranglehold on the American League? Can the New York Yankees recapture the winning ways of the Derek Jeter years? Will the Los Angeles Dodgers, NL favorites, live up to the lofty expectations hoisted upon them this season?

These lines will move several times before the season’s end, but let’s take a look at the pennant odds for both leagues as we head into the first inning break of the season (with all odds via FOX Bet).

*odds as of 4/21/2022

– The Los Angeles Dodgers (+225), who have a ton of talented pitchers to go along with their bats, make up arguably the best roster in baseball. And after winning 106 games last season, they were expected to be even better in 2022. 11 games into the season, the team has the best record in baseball, so it’s no wonder they are the betting favorites in the NL.

– The American League lines are tight with the Blue Jays (+400), Astros (+450), White Sox (+500) and Yankees (+550) sharing very close odds with the Rays right behind. Houston has run roughshod over the league recently, but the sportsbooks clearly see a tight race on the horizon. No one has separated themselves from the pack within the first two weeks, so expect swings depending on whichever team is running hot or cold — providing opportunities to lock in good value.

– The St. Louis Cardinals (+1200) offer good value given their hot start and playoff pedigree. If they can survive a few pitching injuries and get healthy by midseason, the red birds have the ability to make things interesting down the stretch.
