Team Futures

The Braves are given +1300 odds to win the World Series in 2022, which puts them 6th on the odds market. The Braves are just the 8th team since 2000 to not be among the five favorites to win the World Series the next year.

However, it goes a little bit deeper than that. The Braves are also given +150 odds to win the division, which puts them second to the Mets who sit at +140. Of those 8 teams that weren’t among the top-five in World Series odds, the Braves are only the 5th to be favored to win their division. Interestingly, all five teams have been in the National League, as the Braves join the 2004 Marlins, 2013 Giants, 2015 Giants, and 2020 Nationals.

That’s not the best group to be in, as none of the previous four teams won 85 games. So, for the Braves to hit the over on their win total, currently set at 88, they’d need to do something no team with their odds has done this century. The Trade for Matt Olson could certainly help in that regard.

Atlanta Braves Players’ Futures

While the team’s odds look bleak, the player’s odds look better than ever. Ronald Acuna is given +800 odds to win the NL MVP. That puts him second on the market behind only Juan Soto. It’s also a marked improvement over last year when he was given +1000 odds.

Things are even better for Max Fried on the Cy Young market. He’s given +1400 odds to win the Cy Young this year, placing him 7th on the odds market. That’s an incredible improvement on his +2400 odds from last year.

The Braves' odds to win the NL Rookie of the Year took a major hit today. Cristian Pache was their top candidate at +3000, but with him being traded their best chance is Drew Waters at +10000. That ties Waters for 31st on the odds market.
