According to an email posted on Twitter, at least one Sportsbook is high on the Braves going into 2022:
MLB betting odds for the 2022 season? Sure why not.
Per an email from @SportsBettingAG, #Marlins are +1200 to win the NL East (4th longest odds, ahead of only the Nationals), +3300 to win the NL pennant (ahead of five teams) and +6600 to win the World Series. pic.twitter.com/H4RF0LZa6u

Keep in mind, the MLB is locked out, and as it stands, the Braves haven’t re-signed Freddie Freeman. Even without Freeman, the Braves will still be a force in the NL East and a World Series threat, but there will be a solution at first base regardless.
Atlanta having worse odds than the Mets to win the World Series is interesting, especially considering they are tied as favorites for the NL East. There’s no guarantee things shake out this way, but I’d probably have the NL East in the same order as is, with the Braves having a slight edge over the Mets. Atlanta typically isn’t a media or betting favorite before the season, but this year, they have a chance to win the NL East for the fifth season in a row, and who knows, perhaps they manage to go back-to-back. Remember, they did just win the World Series without their best player.
