The baseball world is buzzing with excitement now that Opening Day of the 2022 MLB season is finally here. Although fans are excited to see their favorite clubs take the field, that hasn't stopped bettors from looking ahead to the sport's top prize: the 2022 World Series.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the early World Series odds for this year's title. Things can certainly change before the season ends, but fans will notice a familiar team at the top of the list.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are currently FanDuel Sportsbook's +480 favorite to go on a championship run in 2022. This hardly comes as much of a surprise considering how the Dodgers have three World Series appearances in the last five seasons, which includes their 2020 title run.

The blossoming Toronto Blue Jays have the second-best odds (+850) after their busy offseason. It's been 29 years since the Blue Jays brought the Commissioner's Trophy north of the border, leaving them to rely on their young core to do so this MLB season.

The Chicago White Sox round out the top three at +950 odds as they search for their first title since 2005. That was also the last time they won a playoff series, which only adds to the pressure that this campaign will bring.

Meanwhile, the defending Atlanta Braves will open the new season at +1200, putting them in a tie with the Milwaukee Brewers for the fifth-best odds.

Here's a look at how the rest of the 2022 World Series odds are shaping up ahead of Opening Day.
