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

The New York baseball teams, specifically the Yankees and Mets, are not optimistic choices for the 2024 season according to data from BetMGM Sportsbook. The defending champion Rangers have more bets placed on them to fall short of the postseason than the New York teams. Despite this, both teams have seen a decrease in preseason win totals since opening.

The Yankees’ win total dropped from 93.5 to 91.5 due to several injuries affecting the team. On the other hand, the Orioles have seen the largest increase in wins, going from 87.5 to 90.5. Despite this, oddsmakers still consider the Bronx Bombers strong contenders for the postseason.

In terms of postseason odds, only the Astros have better odds than the Yankees in the American League. The Yankees and Orioles are dead even in AL East race at +180, with the Yankees being one of least bet team to win their division despite having strong odds of doing so. Meanwhile, Vegas bookies consider both teams as long shots to make it into playoffs and win their respective divisions based on low win totals and unfavorable odds for both teams.

Overall, it seems that neither team is favored among bettors for a successful 2024 season despite having strong potential for success in their respective divisions.
