The best World Series prop bets 2022 has to offer, as the Philadelphia Phillies take on the Houston Astros.
Of course, during a seven-game series and an event as high profile as the World Series, there’s so much more to bet than a winning team. You can bet on game-by-game outcomes, of course, but you can also wager on individual performances.
Think pitching dominates this series? Look at Justin Verlander, Zack Wheeler, or Framber Valdez for MVP.
Long balls flying out of these two hitters’ parks? Take a whirl on the OVER for 12.5 total home runs in the series.
Predicting a Houston blowout? Take a shot at Astros -1.5 games on the “series spread”.
Here are some of the more interesting, obscure, or intriguing pro bets available for the 2022 World Series. Introducing our best World Series prop bets.
Game/Series Double (at DraftKings)
If you read the prediction above, we believe Game 1 will tell us a lot about the direction of this series. This bet asks you to pick the winner of game 1 AND the World Series. Here are the odds:
- Houston wins Game 1/Houston wins World Series: +105
- Philadelphia wins Game 1/Philadelphia wins World Series: +340
- Philadelphia wins Game 1/Houston wins World Series: +380
- Houston wins Game 1/Philadelphia wins World Series: +550
This is another place you could potentially hedge a Philadelphia bet. The Phillies’ path to victory is much more realistic with a game one win. But a number like +380, even if they are down 1-0, is an incredible price on a team as good as Houston.
Player to Record Most Home Runs (FanDuel & DraftKings)
Another simple one – which player will hit the most home runs in the World Series?
Yordan Alvarez is sure to be a popular pick. But at +380 it might be best to look elsewhere for a pick with more upside.
My guess is that Houston is very careful pitching to a red-hot Bryce Harper, because the value on him at DraftKings (+600) is almost too good to be true.
Other Philadelphia possibilities:
- Rhys Hoskins +900
- J.T. Realmuto +1500
- Nick Castellanos +2200
- Kyle Tucker +900
- Jeremy Peña +1500
- (Longshot alert) Yuli Gurriel +4500

World Series Exact Outcome (at DraftKings)
So this one looks a little absurd, as it requires you to pick how the series will go, game-by-game.
In other words, you’re choosing the winner of game 1, game 2, game 3, and so on until someone wins four games. Get the eventual order exactly right, and you’re a winner.
With the Series bound to last anywhere from 4-7 games, and two possible winners, there are 70 potential sequences in which the series could end.
Don’t think of any of these as predictions – it’s a ridiculous endeavor. However, a few interesting sequences and their odds:
|G1 Houston/G2 Houston/G3 Houston/G4 Houston: +850||Quite simply, the favorite wins all four games.|
|G1 Philadelphia/G2 Philadelphia/G3 Philadelphia/|
G4 Philadelphia/: +1800
|The underdog Phillies win all four games.|
|G1 Houston/G2 Houston/G3 Philadelphia/G4 Philadelphia/G5 Philadelphia/G6 Houston/|
G7 Houston: +4000
|The home team wins every game.|
|G1 Philadelphia/G2 Philadelphia/G3 Houston/G4 Houston/G5 Houston/G6 Philadelphia/|
G7 Philadelphia: +20000
|The road team wins every game.|
Have some fun with it for a few bucks, but the odds don’t even reflect how unlikely it would be to win a bet like this before the series begins.
Players to Get a Hit in Every Game (at DraftKings)
At odds of +850, Houston’s José Altuve is the most likely player to record a hit in every game – no matter how long the Series lasts.
Bonus Prop Bet: Cross-Sport Plays?
This is pure speculation on our part. Let’s get that out of the way up front.
However, if the series makes it back to Houston for Game 6, it will be played next Friday night, November 4. Thursday, November 3, if an off day for the World Series – but guess what the Thursday Night Football matchup is?
That’s right, it’s Philadelphia vs. Houston. The Eagles and Texans will tangle at NRG Stadium, about one mile from the site of the Houston-based World Series contests. If this happens, sportsbooks might be tempted to offer some cross-sports bets or parlays on Thursday Night Football and the World Series.
Imagine the excitement of a Philly-based fan, parlaying an Eagles win on Thursday night with a Phillies Game 6 victory? Or a Houston fan who bets that Framber Valdez will record more strikeouts in Game 6 than Nico Collins has receptions on Thursday Night Football.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to the best World Series prop bets. So if the series gets to Game 6, keep your eyes open for any offers!
