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

The New York Yankees and Mets are not expected to have a successful 2024 season, according to betting public data from BetMGM Sportsbook. While the Yankees are seen as solid postseason contenders by oddsmakers, the Mets are considered long shots for the NL Wild Card race.

Despite their struggles, the Yankees have a second-best chance of making it to the playoffs in the American League, behind only 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 the division. However, injuries have affected their projected win total, dropping it from 93.5 wins to 91.5.

On the other hand, the Orioles saw a significant increase in their win total after a quiet offseason, going from 87.5 wins to 90.5 wins. Despite this improvement, they still trail behind both teams in terms of odds to make it into postseason play.

The Mets have also struggled in recent years, with their win total decreasing from 82.5 to 81.5 after a disappointing 2023 season and a quiet offseason. They have +145 odds to make it into postseason play in the National League and are not considered popular bets for winning their division or even making it into playoff contention. The Braves are favored to win the NL East where they also aren’t a popular bet to win their division.

Overall, both teams face challenges heading into next season and will need strong performances if they want to improve on their current odds of missing out on postseason play.
