Sports bettors show lack of support for Yankees and Mets as 2024 MLB season approaches

New York Baseball Teams Facing Odds of Missing Playoffs as Win Totals Decrease Ahead of 2024 Season

The New York baseball teams are not optimistic about their chances in the 2024 season, with both the Yankees and Mets among the most bet teams to miss the playoffs according to data from BetMGM Sportsbook. The defending champion Rangers have even more bets placed on them to fall short of the postseason than the New York teams.

Despite this, oddsmakers still consider both the Yankees and Mets strong contenders for the postseason. However, their preseason win totals have decreased since opening. The Yankees’ win total dropped from 93.5 to 91.5 due to several injuries affecting the team, while the Orioles saw an increase of wins from 87.5 to 90.5. Despite these changes, both teams are still being considered for postseason contention by Vegas bookies.

In terms of odds, only the Astros have better odds than the Yankees in the American League race. The Yankees and Orioles are dead even in AL East race at +180, with New York being second least bet team to win division with these odds. Meanwhile, Mets have a win total of 81.5 after a disappointing season in 2023 and Vegas bookies have them as long shots to make playoffs and win NL East title.

Overall, it seems that both New York baseball teams are not favored among bettors to perform well in the upcoming season despite having strong odds of winning their division or making it into playoffs.

Both teams have seen a decrease in preseason win totals since opening day due to various factors such as injuries and poor performance
