Brewers Odds & Predictions | 2022 MLB Playoff Futures & Award Props

Heading into the 2018 season, the Milwaukee Brewers had made only four playoff appearances in 49 years.  Since 2018, they’ve made the playoffs every year.

Unfortunately, Milwaukee has lost to the eventual World Series Champions in their last three trips to the postseason, falling to the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Washington Nationals.

In last year’s NLDS, the Brewers took Game 1 before losing three in a row to the Braves. It didn’t help that reliever Devin Williams fractured his hand punching a wall after clinching the division.

Aside from the collapse in the playoffs, 2021 was a successful year for Milwaukee. With a 95-67 record, the Brewers won the NL Central for the second time in four years.

The pitching staff was stellar, as Corbin Burnes won the NL Cy Young Award and Josh Hader won the Trevor Hoffman NL Reliever of the Year Award. They both made the All-MLB team and combined to pitch a no-hitter. Milwaukee also sent four players to the All-Star Game.

Even before the lockout, Milwaukee had a quiet offseason. The team lost Avisail Garcia, Eduardo Escobar, and Daniel Vogelbach to free agency. However, they filled the holes quickly and made other key roster moves, signing Andrew McCutchen and Pedro Severino while trading for Hunter Renfroe.

While Milwaukee is the NL Central favorite heading into this season, will they be able to put together a postseason run? Let’s explore some of the best Brewers futures bets for 2022.

Brewers Top Betting Odds 2022

Milwaukee Brewers betting odds are current as of Tuesday, March 22 at 9 a.m. ET at Caesars Sportsbook.

  • World Series Winners (+1600)
  • Win National League Pennant (+750)
  • Win National League Central Title (-130)
  • 2022 Win Total Over/Under 88.5 (-110)

The Brewers played at the level they were expected to play at last season, winning two more games than expected. However, even with the regular-season success, it was overshadowed by the disappointing postseason appearance.

This team was expected to make a run at the World Series last year, but fell way short of that goal.

The pitching staff is the strongest spot for the Brewers. The starting rotation sports two Cy Young favorites (Burnes and Brandon Woodruff), an All-Star (Freddy Peralta), and four other pitchers as potential starters. The bullpen is as strong as ever, headlined by Hader, Williams, and Brad Boxberger.

On the flip side, last season was another down year for former NL MVP Christian Yelich, who will look to turn things around in 2022. The additions of McCutchen and Renfroe will help a lot, along with Rowdy Tellez and Lorenzo Cain becoming full-time starters.

If everyone on the roster plays up to their full potential, the Brewers can become one of the most dangerous teams in the NL.

Brewers To Win OVER 88.5 Games (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Excluding the shortened 2020 season, Milwaukee has won at least 89 games the last three seasons. The roster has essentially stayed the same, only getting slightly better, so it’s no surprise I’m taking the Over here.

As long as Yelich returns to 2019 form and the pitching staff stays as strong as last year, this team shouldn’t have any problems getting wins.

Brewers To Win NL Central (-130) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 2 Units

The NL Central will be a two-team race between the Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals, and I’m giving the edge to the Brewers. While the position players are close in skill, Milwaukee’s pitching staff is miles ahead of St. Louis’.

The Brewers also have the second-weakest schedule in baseball. Milwaukee’s opponents have a projected winning percentage of .489 this upcoming season. That gives them an easy path to winning the division and makes this a great choice for our MLB bet of the day.

Brewers To Win NL Pennant (+750) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

The path to the World Series will be a tough one, as the Brewers have the fourth-best odds to win the National League Pennant, behind the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves.

Milwaukee has all the right pieces to go to the World Series. The team just needs to execute in the postseason.

There shouldn’t be any questions surrounding the pitching, as we’ve established it as the best part of the team. The rotation is strong, and they have plenty of depth.

This team needs Yelich to return to MVP form if they want to make waves in the postseason. If he’s playing well, it will translate across the entire roster and give the team life. The Brewers also need big batting performances from new additions Renfroe and McCutchen.

Christian Yelich To Win 2022 NL MVP (+2500) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

After winning the award in his first season with the team in 2018 and coming in second in 2019, Yelich’s performance has vastly fallen off.

In 2020, he was second in the NL in strikeouts (76) and batted a measly .205. Yelich missed a good chunk of games to start 2021 due to injury, but batted .248 and had just nine home runs.

He’s lost his power, and his plate discipline has gotten worse as he’s been striking out more. Yelich’s walk rate has been the only real positive.

Yelich has been a shell of his former self, but there’s still hope for him to return to form. If Yelich can stay healthy and fix the holes in his game, he can easily return to playing at an MVP level.

Corbin Burnes To Win 2022 NL Cy Young (+800) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

It was tough deciding who to go with for the NL Cy Young award. Burnes and Woodruff are both in the top six as favorites to win, and I even considered Peralta as a dark horse to take home the hardware. But, I have to go with last year’s winner in Burnes.

Since becoming a full-time starter in 2020, Burnes has been lights out for the Brewers. Last year, he finished with an 11-5 record and led the league with a 2.43 ERA. Burnes was stellar in making batters whiff while also limiting free passes, finishing the year with 234 strikeouts and just 34 walks.

The NL has a lot of great pitchers, so it’ll be a battle for who comes out on top. However, Burnes has only gotten better year after year and has shown no signs of slowing down.

    Betting Impact:
    The Mavericks are +800 to win the West, a huge jump from the +360 they sat at prior to Game 3. Dallas was able to win Game 4 but is not expected to emerge from the West. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 series deficit to win a series in the NBA Playoffs.

    The Dallas Mavericks are +3000 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

  • Warriors -139 to win NBA Championship

    The Golden State Warriors are -139 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:

    The Golden State Warriors have fallen to -250 to win the Western Conference, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    Golden State headed into Game 4 at -10000 to win the West but has come crashing back to reality after failing to sweep the Mavericks. It is worth noting that no team in NBA history has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit and that only two teams have even managed to tie it back up.

    The Miami Heat are +160 to win the 2021-22 NBA Championship, per BettingPros consensus odds.

    Betting Impact:
    Miami is tied 2-2 against Boston but is being viewed as the clear underdogs. Miami is dealing with injuries to Tyler Herro, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, and P.J. Tucker and is facing a relatively healthy Celtics squad. Miami was +137 heading into Game 4 with a 2-1 series lead.
