World Series Match Up – Odds – Astros Heavy Favorites

October 24, 2022
2022 World Series Betting Preview

The 2022 World Series is set and ready to go. The Houston Astros will face the Philadelphia Phillies for all the glory. Game one doesn’t happen until four days from today. So there is plenty of time to throw down those bets.

Speaking of game 1, the Astros are the home team and are starting ace pitcher Justin Verlander against Aaron Nola. The Astros are favored -165 and the Phillies are +155 at BetOnline.ag

Houston is also favored to win the World Series by about 2/1 odds. Both BetUS and BetOnline have the Astros at -190 but if you like the Phillies then BetOnline is your best bet as they are paying +165 compared to BetUS’s +155

Congratulations if you read our article last week about taking the Phillies to win it all at +375 as the value play and bet that pick. You are now in the position to do a little hedging or let it ride.
