Game 1 of the 2022 World Series begins this Friday at 8:00 p.m. when the Philadelphia Phillies travel to face the 1.5 runline favorite Houston Astros.

The Astros have been forecast to make it to the World Series for most of the season on MLB betting sites, but the same cannot be said for the Phillies.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves had World Series futures that put them ahead of Philadelphia, but the Phillies had other plans and are now four wins away from winning it all.

An alternative line has been released at MyBookie, offering online players the opportunity to buy the lines for larger payouts.

For some reason, lines were sparse for the first game of the 2022 World Series, but Bovada posted several props that add additional betting excitement to Friday night’s competition.

The following three MLB betting lines ask which team will hit 3, 5 and 7 runs first.

Which team will win the race by 3 heats?

  • Philadelphia Phillies +110
  • Houston Astros-145

Which team will win the race by 5 heats?

  • Philadelphia Phillies +115
  • Houston Astros 150

Which team will win the race up to 7 heats?

  • Philadelphia Phillies +115
  • Houston Astros 150

In any case, the Astros are narrowly favored to cross the predetermined threshold first. If these World Series prop bets are too specific for your liking, perhaps you could indulge in the following line, which asks if both teams’ total combined runs will be an even number or an odd number.

Odd/Even total runs

This next prop asks when the first heat in Game 1 of the World Series will be scored. This MLB prop is paid out when bettors select the correct inning in which to score the first run, regardless of which team does so.

When is the first run counted?

  • 1st inning +123
  • 2nd inning +310
  • 3rd inning +500
  • Other inning or no run +310

Placing a bet on an outcome of “Other Innings Or No Run” will include points scored during additional innings and will award cash prizes greater than three times the amount wagered.

One reason the World Series betting lines for Game 1 are so thin is that starting pitchers have yet to be announced. Once the Game 1 starters are known, head back to the top online sportsbooks we recommend here at SBL to see how the odds have changed.

Right now, MLB bettors can take advantage of the World Series total series prizes and prop bets currently populating the boards.
