Updated 2022 Pennant Winner Odds: June 22, 2022

AL Pennant: New York Yankees +220

New York jumped over the Houston Astros as AL pennant winners. Nestor Cortes helped the Yankees become the number one team in baseball as he is 6-2 with a 1.94 ERA. He arguably ascended to the ace role while Gerrit Cole became the two.

Aaron Judge played his way into MVP discussions as he hit .305 with 25 homers and 50 RBIs.

The Yankees won 11 straight at the end of April and early May. But the month of June is where New York is making a mark. In 17 games, New York posted a 15-2 record that pushed it to the best team in the league.

 NL Pennant: Los Angeles Dodgers +220

It was not a surprise when LA came as the pennant favorites in the beginning, but now it is a little more shocking the odds pegged them at better chances.

The NL owns some of the better teams in the league like the New York Mets, San Diego Padres, San Fransisco Giants and Atlanta Braves

But the case for the Dodgers can be explained by Tyler Anderson and Tony Gonsolin. Both pitched incredible into this far in the campaign. Gonsolin owned an 8-0 record with a 1.42 ERA in 12 games. Anderson also claims an 8-0 record with a 2.82 ERA.

This just made the Dodgers that much better because the offense never seemed like a problem heading in, if anything it was the rotation. Trevor Bauer received a two-year suspension and Dustin May is out indefinitely, but LA seems fine without the two.

NL Pennant Favorite: Los Angeles Dodgers +250

No surprises here as the Dodgers are perennial favorites for the  NL pennant every year.

In the offseason, LA bolstered their pitching staff with lefties Tyler Anderson, Danny Duffy and Andrew Heaney.

Oh, and they got first basemen Freddie Freeman too.

With an All-Star at every position, and a talented pitching staff led by Walker Buehler, the Dodgers are clear favorites.

But there are some uncertainties in LA like Trevor Bauer and Dustin May for the 2022 season. Despite facing no criminal charges, Bauer is being investigated by MLB for sexual assault accusations. His return is uncertain. May underwent Tommy John surgery in the middle of the 2021 season and he projects to be available for the late stages of the ’22 campaign.

The Dodgers starting five is significantly better with Bauer and May, but they still possess a solid group that will keep them in contention.

AL Pennant Favorite: Houston Astros  +425

Again, no shock here as the Astros are constantly hunting a World Series title.

There are a few departures like Carlos Correa, Zack Greinke and Kendall Gravemen that weaken Houston.

The team signed reliever Hector Neris to strengthen the bullpen. But the Astros have yet to sign a suitable replacement for their former shortstop.

In 2021, the Astros  led the MLB with a .267 batting average (BA) and a .339 on base percentage (OBP). In overall earned run average (ERA), Houston notched a 3.78 that placed them seventh in the league.

While Houston possesses talented hitters like Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Yuli Gurriel and Yordan Alvarez, but there is a hole without Correa.

Justin Verlander resigned with Houston, so the core of starting pitching is still intact. The Astros may call up one of their top pitching prospects in Hunter Brown to fill a spot if needed. Later in the year, an interesting player to watch is right hander Forrest Whitley. The former top prospect is recovering from Tommy John surgery. With a five-pitch repertoire, Whitlety can spark the Astros when he debuts. It is estimated he will be fully recovered by the middle of the season, and can be used as a starter or reliever.

There is still plenty of competition for the AL pennant like the Chicago White Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees. With odds listed at +450, +550, and +550 respectively the Astros face tougher competition than the Dodgers will for a pennant.
