The final piece of paper Major League Baseball passed across the table yesterday was torn to pieces by Tony Clark.

What ensued was the cancellation of 91 MLB games by commissioner Rob Manfred.

How long will this standoff last? Well, SportsBetting.ag has created odds to answer that question.

May and June have the lowest odds, which points to the season starting in one of those months.

April has the longest odds while a canceled 2022 season comes in at 5-1, or +500.

Additionally, the sportsbook has a prop on the highest number of games played by any teams, should there be a season. The over/under is set at 120.5, meaning the oddsmakers expect more than 40 games for each team to be nixed.

When will the 2022 regular season start?

May                 +175

June                 +200

July or later     +250

No Season       +500

April                +550


Total games played during 2022 regular season

Over 120.5

Under 120.5


While we're waiting on an agreement, we can always talk how the season is "projected" to play out, at least according to the numbers. Below are the current World Series and division odds.
