National League winners and World Series futures bets broken

The Major League Baseball season is starting this week so we decided to break up every section of the senior circuit from a betting standpoint.

The National League defending World Series champion boasts the most terrific lineup of all baseballs and a few fascinating dark horses, so there’s a lot to consider. I included the total odds of each team winning, as well as estimates of wins from the fangraph, and some possible World Series picks. Hopefully this will help anyone who wants to double in the futures market.

National League East: Division Winners (Regular Season)

Atlanta +115

New York +198

Philadelphia +322

Miami +1566

Washington +4291

Atlanta Braves

Regular season wins: over 90.5 -125 | Below 90.5 -105

Fangraph projection: 93 wins

Defending World Series champions are favorites to repeat as division champions. 2020 NL MVP Freddie Freeman is gone but 2021 all-star Matt Olson came to ATL through a trade with Oakland. Atlanta will get a huge shot in hand when Ronald Acuna Jr. returns in May after suffering a torn ACL on the right side last season.

New York Mets

Regular season wins: over 90.5 -116 | Below 90.5 -104

Fangraph projection: 89 wins

Mets owner Steven Cohen reopened his wallet to bring in free agent pitcher Max Scherzer and pair him with Jacob DeGrom for the best one-two punch in baseball. But with Degram’s condition now in question when dealing with a shoulder injury, the Metropolitan will need starters Chris Basit, Taijuan Walker and Carlos Carasco until the two-time NL Sai Young winner returns.

Philadelphia Phillies

Regular season wins: 86.5 -111 over Below 86.5 -125

Fangraph projection: 88 wins

Phyllis will again rely on 2021 NL MVP Bryce Harper to carry the load aggressively. Harper scored 35 home runs last season and will be joined on the outfield by Nick Castellanos, who hit 34 bombs with the Reds last season, and Kyle Schwarzenegger, who drilled 32 dingers with Boston and Washington in 2021.

Miami Marlins

Regular season wins: over 76.5 -112 Below 76.5 -112

Fangraph projection: 83 wins

The Marlins are a real trend pick for some damage to the NL East this season. Miami has already added Avicail Garcia and George Solar to their already young cores. The Marlins also reel with veterans Joey Wendell and Cole Salser to add some vital depth.

Washington Nationals

Regular Season Won: Over 61.5-107 | Below 71.5 -114

Fangraph projection: 73 wins

The 2019 World Series champions are fresh in a 97-defeat season. For their offense, baseball’s best hitter Juan Soto will have to play at the MVP level to compete. They will also need a healthy Stephen Strasberg, who has tossed down a total of 30 innings since the start of the 2020 season.

My picks: I think Phyllis has some value for winning the division. Philly’s new outfield could come together for more than 100 homers this season. The Braves and Mets have some injury issues with their stars, which could open the door for the Phillies. I will take them to +322 to grab the NL East crown.

National League Central: Division winners (regular season)

• Milwaukee-185

• St. Louis +223

Chicago +1182

• Cincinnati +1384

• Pittsburgh +5890

Milwaukee Brewers

Regular season wins: 89.5 -111 over Below 89.5 -111

Fangraph projection: 88 wins

The Brewers lost to what would be a weak NL Central team. Milwaukee’s strength is their starting pitching led by NL Sai Young winners Corbin Burns and two other all-stars, Brandon Woodruff and Freddie Peralta. They will need Christian Yelich to get a bounce-back year after slashing .248 / .362 / .373 in 2021.

St. Louis Cardinals

Regular season wins: over 84.5 -118 Below 84.5 -118

Fangraph projection: 81 wins

The Cardinals will look to Paul Goldschmid and Nolan Arenado to get out of the gate and will need 40-year-old Adam Wainwright to continue their fight against Father Time to tighten their grip. St. Louis signed free-agent starter Steven Matz and brought back future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols to try to move to the top of the division.

Chicago Cubs

Regular season wins: over 74.5 -110 | Below 74.5 -120

Fangraph projection: 75 wins

The Cubs will rely on Frank Swindell, Wilson Contraras and newcomer Seya Suzuki for a new core in the middle of their lineup to keep the Cubs competitive. The starting rotation of Kyle Hendrix, Marcus Strowman and Wade Miley should put Chicago in the mix of NL Central.

Cincinnati Reds

Regular season wins: over 74.5 -110 | Below 74.5 -120

Fangraph projection: 75 wins

The Reds will need Canadian Joey Voto to mimic Jonathan India, his 36-homer season and the reigning NL Rookie of the Year. On top of that, they will look to Luis Castillo to repeat the second half of last season. Castillo had a 2.73 ERA during his last 22 outings.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Regular season wins: over 64.5 -116 | Below 64.5 -104

Fangraph projection: 69 wins

Pirates is in the process of rebuilding and will lead the youth movement of Brian Reynolds, K’Brian Hayes and Mitch Keller. The Bucs are not ready to compete, but at least Oneil Cruz could be a serious contender for the NL Rookie of the Year.

My Preferences: I can’t justify taking Brewers at that price. I’d rather sprinkle a little on the Cardinals who finished last season in tears. If their veterans can pull off another tough season, it looks like a really good price to pay to win the NL Central at St. Louis +223.

National League West: Division winners (regular season)

Los Angeles-244

• San Diego +318

San Francisco +506

Colorado +10100

Arizona +12600

Los Angeles Dodgers

Regular season wins: over 98.5 -111 | Below 98.5 -111

Fangraph projection: 94 wins

The Dodgers are a major league baseball class heading into the 2022 season. Dodgers 2020 NL MVP has added Freddie Freeman to a lineup that already includes Mookie Bates and Tree Turner. If the LA rotation – featuring Walker Bueller, Julio Urias and Clayton Kershaw – can be healthy, the Dodgers should be the losing team in the National League.

San Diego Padres

Regular season wins: 88.5 -104 over Below 88.5 -116

Fangraph projection: 89 wins

The Padres are coming off a disappointing 2021 season where they have finished below the .500 mark. San Diego will try to rebound without superstar Fernando Tatis Jr., who has been out for several months due to a broken wrist. The Friars, who started pitching in 2022 under the leadership of U Darwish, Blake Snell and newly acquired Shawn Mania, should be the force.

San Francisco Giants

Regular season wins: over 85.5 -111 Below 85.5 -111

Fangraph projection: 85 wins

In 2021 the Giants will try to improve on their wonderful 107-win season. The 2021 repeat will be difficult for San Francisco and will have to do without the departure of the free agent of 2012 NL MVP Buster Posey (retired) and Chris Bryant (Rockies). ) And Kevin Gaussman (Blue Jess). The giants will need a lot from the top-of-the-rotation starter Logan Web.

Colorado Rocks

Regular season wins: over 68.5 -118 | Below 68.5 -118

Fangraph projection: 69 wins

The Rockies have shocked the baseball world by signing Chris Bryant this off-season. Colorado has added Jose Iglesias, Alex Kolome, Chad Kuhl and traded for Toronto’s Randall Grichuk as they try to increase their chances in the tough NL West. Only the helpless Orioles are expected to win fewer games than the Rockies.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Regular season wins: over 66.5 -110 | Below 66.5 -115

Fangraph projection: 70 wins

The Diamondbacks will need their starting pitcher to stay healthy to be respectable in the NL West. Only Madison Bumgarner, Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly made more than 15 starts for an Arizona team that used a total of 16 starters in 2021.

My Preferences: The Dodgers have the scariest lineup in baseball and the Dodgers will have to lose this division with an exceptional starting rotation. I laid the juice and take them to win the NL West at -244.

World Series winners (National League only)

Los Angeles Dodgers +461

Atlanta +1165

• Milwaukee +1173

New York Mets +1498

• San Diego +1621

San Francisco +2171

Philadelphia +2417

St. Louis +2535

• Cincinnati +6650

Miami +7530

Chicago Breed +9390

Washington +11800

Colorado +12300

Arizona +22400

• Pittsburgh +29200

My Preferences: Dodgers is a baseball class and I think it has a value of +461. If Los Angeles is healthy, they should end up with the best record in baseball and home file throughout the playoffs. In the National League I like the Phillies at +2417 and the Cardinals at +2535 as the Dark Horse. If both squads get contributions from their veterans, both teams could be there in October.
