Three Teams That Could Beat The Cocky Dodgers and Win The 2022 World Series--MLB Best Bets
There’s confidence and there’s arrogance, and there’s bold and there’s ballsy & I'm here for it all.
But, remember this: “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”
Well, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts moved into full-on Muhammad Ali mode last week when he declared: “We are winning the World Series in 2022…We will win the World Series this year, put it on record. We are winning the World Series.”
Wow. Calling his shot before Opening Day. Duly noted, Dave, and you are now officially on the record. The Dodgers are the prohibitive favorite to triumph in this year’s Fall Classic for many reasons, with the main one being L.A is flat-out loaded – good lord, slap me if I don’t confess that I worship at the altar of Will Smith … the Dodgers’ baseball-playing catcher (Nah--neither). Adding former NL MVP Freddie Freeman hardly seems fair.
To quote the legendary Vin Scully: “Good is not good when better is expected.”
No doubt now the pressure is on Dave’s Dodgers to deliver on his promise.

Here are the AL and NL teams that can KO L.A.
TORONTO BLUE JAYS (+900)
Their odds keep dropping (+1100 last week) and for good reason: They bring back three of MLB’s top-15 RBI leaders in Teoscar Hernandez, future MVP Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette. Then in the offseason, they added two former All-Stars in George Springer and Matt Chapman. That’s a potent offensive lineup that can match the Dodgers’ massively expensive and incredibly potent one. Plus, the Jays signed Kevin Gausman to replace 2021 Cy Young winner Robbie Ray.
NEW YORK YANKEES (+1100)
Many, me among them, thought it would be the Dodgers and Yankees in the World Series last fall. Could happen this year. Losing to the rival Red Sox in the AL wild-card game last year must be motivating. Another AL East squad with a loaded lineup: If the Yankees can bring Josh Donaldson, Anthony Rizzo, Joey Gallo, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton to the plate in the same game frequently, they’ll win a majority of those. Plus, Gerrit Cole is an ace up their sleeve every time he steps on the mound – but can he and the rest of the batting lineup stay healthy?
NEW YORK METS (+1000)
A one-two pitching duo of Jacob deGrom and new Met (and three-time Cy Young award winner) Max Scherzer will be imposing, and the offense has two-time home run champ Pete Alonso along with hot-hitting (during this Spring Training) shortstop Francisco Lindor to put fear into pitchers’ hearts. With the additions of solid hitters Starling Marte, Mark Canha, and Eduardo Escobar, this feels like a bounce-back season from a year ago and an amazing run for the Mets.
