The Atlanta Braves were largely off the radar as a World Series favorite heading into last season, with the team listed at 10-to-1 to win it all. However, the SportsLine Projection Model gave the Braves nearly double the chance those odds implied, with Atlanta winning the World Series in about 17% of simulations. The model identified clear value in the Braves heading into the 2021 season, and now the accomplished MLB expert who has helped develop that model is here with his top World Series value plays for 2022.
Before you lock in your MLB World Series bets, you need to see what the SportsLine MLB expert Jon Bollman has to say.
Bollman is coming off a monster 2021 MLB season: He went 380-309-1, returning $3,855 to $100 bettors and finishing as SportsLine's No. 1 expert. That doesn't include his playoff run picking props, which boosts him over 42 units in profit for the year! It's no surprise: In 2018 Bollman, who has a master's degree in biostatistics, worked in the Toronto Blue Jays' analytics department, focusing on high-performance sports science and player development. He combines that MLB front-office experience with a deep statistical background to deliver incredible success on MLB picks.
One thing we can share: Bollman is fading the favored Dodgers to win the World Series at +500! Even though the Dodgers added 2020 National League MVP Freddie Freeman to their lineup and return an excellent rotation headlined by Walker Buehler, Julio Urias and Clayton Kershaw, SportsLine's No. 1 expert doesn't consider Los Angeles his favorite to win the World Series. In addition to sharing his favorite, he also pegs two other teams with positive expected value on their 2022 World Series odds.
