Sluggers Struggle: Yankees and Mets Fall Short in 2024 Season Betting

Sports bettors shy away from Yankees and Mets as 2024 MLB season approaches

The New York baseball teams, the Yankees and Mets, are not expected to do well in the 2024 season according to the betting public. Data from BetMGM Sportsbook shows that the two teams are among the most bet-on teams to miss the playoffs, with only the Rangers being ahead of them in that regard.

The Yankees have seen one of the largest declines in their projected win totals, going from 93.5 wins to 91.5 due to injuries that have affected the team. On the other hand, the Orioles have seen a significant increase in their win total, going from 87.5 to 90.5 wins. Despite their struggles, the Yankees are still seen as solid postseason contenders by oddsmakers. They have the second-best postseason odds in the American League, only behind the Astros. In the AL East, they are tied with the Orioles at +180 and have gotten the second-fewest bets at BetMGM to win
