The 2022 MLB season is quickly approaching. With Opening Day set for April 7th spring training is in full swing with players shaking off the rust after a lengthy lockout. As we approach opening day, DraftKings Sportsbook has odds for home run totals for certain players. Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto has an over/under set at 26.5 home runs for the 2022 season.

Juan Soto HR over/under: 35.5

Soto is heading into his fifth season in the big leagues and he is coming off a season where he finished second in NL MVP voting. He played in 151 games and hit .313 with 29 home runs and 95 RBIs. Soto’s current career-high in home runs is 34 that he hit back in 2019. If you were to take his entire career and extrapolate his numbers over a 162-game season he would have 34 home runs in the season, according to baseball-reference. Soto is primed for another big season, but I think the ball stays in the yard a little more than is expected.

Pick: Under 35.5
