MLB Philadelphia Phillies Betting Predictions for the 2022 Season

For the first time in a long time, Philadelphia Phillies fans are excited for the season. In 2021, the Phillies went 82-80 and Bryce Harper won the NL MVP. The thinking in Philadelphia is that Harper continues playing like a future hall of famer while manager Joe Girardi gets his squad to take the next step. Check out MLB odds, analysis, and betting predictions for the 2022 Philadelphia Phillies.  

Phillies MLB Betting Predictions

2022 MLB Season 

  • When: March 31 – Nov. 2

Phillies to Win the NL East Division +440

The odds aren’t at an overlay number because the Phillies must beat at least two solid teams. The first are the Atlanta Braves. The second are the New York Mets

Philadelphia should have no trouble taking it to the Washington Nationals, though. So even if we can’t write that the odds are at an overlay number, we can’t say they’re underlaid, either. The odds to win the NL East Division are fair. 

Overlay or Underlay Odds: Fair

Phillies to Win the National League Pennant +1425

Atlanta, the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco, and Milwaukee are the best teams in the National League. The St. Louis Cardinals will also make the case.

But Philadelphia has a dynamite lineup and an underrated starting rotation. If Zach Wheeler continues his ascension to Cy Young pitcher status, and Aaron Nola improves off his 4.63 ERA from last season, the Phillies could be one of the teams to beat in the NL, which is why the +1425 odds make the Phillies an overlay to win the pennant. 

Overlay or Underlay Odds: Overlay

Phillies to Win the World Series +3200

The reigning NL MVP in Bryce Harper, the best catcher in baseball in J.T. Realmuto, and a Cy Young ace starter in Zack Wheeler, make the Phillies an overlay at +3200 to win the Fall Classic.

No doubt, Didi Gregorious must drastically improve his 2021 batting average, Gregorious hit .209, and another ace must emerge in the rotation, but if those things happen, the Phillies become at worst a +2000 choice to win the World Series. 

Overlay or Underlay Odds: Overlay

Bryce Harper NL MVP Award +1000

It’s tough to win back-to-back NL MVPs, but we can’t write off Harper’s chances of doing so. Bryce hit .309 last season with 35 home runs and 84 RBIs. 

He did so after struggling early in the season, which means Harper settled down and started blasting dingers. Getting out of a slump requires mental fortitude. 

So if Bryce has figured out how to calm his mind and get base hits almost at will, forget it. Harper can post a string of MVP victories. The +1000 odds on Harper are more than fair.  

Overlay or Underlay Odds: Fair
