New York Baseball Teams Face Betting Public Challenges in 2024 Season: Yankees, Mets Predicted to Miss Playoffs

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

The New York baseball teams, the Yankees and Mets, are expected to have a tough time in the 2024 season according to betting public. Data from BetMGM Sportsbook shows that both teams are among the most bet-on teams to miss the playoffs.

Since their preseason, both teams have seen a decline in their projected win totals. The Yankees have had one of the largest declines, 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, both teams are still seen as solid postseason contenders by oddsmakers. The Yankees have second-best postseason odds in the American League, only behind the Astros. In terms of winning the division, they are tied with the Orioles at +180 and have gotten fewer bets at BetMGM compared to other teams in the league.

The Mets’ win total has decreased from 82.5 to 81.5 wins after a disappointing 2023 season and a quiet offseason period without any major moves or signings. They are considered long shots for NL Wild Card race and have +145 odds of making it into postseason playoffs, trailing eight other teams in National League alone
