New York Yankees become new favorites to win 2022 World Series

The 27-time world champions the New York Yankees entered this month with an impressive 56-21 record and a 12.5-game lead in the AL East. Recently, the Yankees also defeated the Cleveland Guardians 6-1.

ESPN’s David Purdum reported that the Yankees are listed as favorites to win the 2022 World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers in sportsbooks throughout the country. With that said, this is the first time the Dodgers have not been the championship favorites during regular-season play since July 2020.

John Murray, an executive director of Westgate SuperBook, also noted that the Yankees are the “best” team and the public has started to think that the team will most likely be the winner of this season.

“We thought there were some holes in the Yankees’ roster, but it was very apparent early on that we were wrong about that,” Murray said. “They continue to exceed expectations on almost a daily basis. It seems like even when they’re dead in a game, they find a way to win the game and bury us.”

Regarding betting matters, the Yankees are currently the most popular team to bet on in the New Jersey Westgate SuperBook. Murray also said that some of their biggest house players were making significant wagers on the Yankees.

Aaron Judge’s contribution to the team is also one of the factors that led the Yankees to this point. Judge is a strong MVP candidate due to his impressive track record too. According to Murray, someone has made a bet of $500 on Judge at 40-1, while another has even placed $1,000 at 25-1.

Judge scored 29 home runs, which placed him in the first rank in the league, and he owned 59 RBIs, which put him in the fourth rank. The Baseball Writer’s Association might also award him a new accolade if he manages to hit 60 homers in a 110-win season.

The Yankees will have their next game against the Cleveland Guardians on Sunday night. Odds supported by the DraftKings sportsbook show that the Yankees are more likely to win at moneyline -170, while the Guardians are likely to win at moneyline +145.
