When Is the 2022 World Series? Schedule, Time
The 2022 Major League Baseball World Series kicked off on Friday, October 28. The best-of-seven series could run through Sunday, November 6, which is when a potential Game 7 of the World Series would be played.
All games have a start time of 8:03pm ET (or 7:03pm CT for Houston fans). That means the baseball games air live at 5:03pm PT.
The first two games were played in Houston, before the series shifted to Philadelphia for games 3, 4 and 5. For Game 6 and Game 7 (if needed), the teams will return to Minute Maid Park in Texas.
Who Is in the 2022 World Series?
This year’s World Series matchup features the Houston Astros vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. The Astros return to the Fall Classic for the fourth time in six seasons, after defeating the New York Yankees in the ALCS. This is also the second year in a row that Houston is playing in the World Series (they lost to the Atlanta Braves in 2021).
The Phillies meantime, will be making their first World Series appearance since 2009. The Phillies took down the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, behind a clutch performance from MVP Bryce Harper.

2022 World Series Odds, Teams, Lineups
Heading into their first game, the odds between the Astros and the Phillies are very close. But, considering their domination over the last few seasons, oddsmakers have unsurprisingly given the Astros the edge to win — if only with favorite odds of -170 (Caesar’s Sportsbook).
Led by superstar Justin Verlander, the Astros racked up a regular-season record of 106-56, which also gives them home-field advantage over the Phillies, whose regular season saw 87 wins and 75 losses.
But, despite their lesser regular-season and home-field disadvantage, the Phillies have no reason to be dispirited with underdog odds of just +143. The Phillies’ star talent includes Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber’s bats, as well as some strong pitching courtesy of ace Zach Wheeler (who will be pitching in Games 1 and 2).
Since entering the playoffs, the Phillies have stepped up to the plate in a big way with a .442 slugging percentage. This performance has torn through their first three opponents, losing no more than one game per match up. Most recently, the Phillies defeated the red-hot underdog Padres to secure their spot in the World Series.
