The 2023 MLB season is (basically) here.

So while media outlets continue to put out their predictions for how the season will shake out (take a look at the SNY staff picks here), now’s as good a time as ever to take a look at some of the betting odds when it comes to who will win the World Series, along with the major awards like MVP and Cy Young.

Here’s a look at how some of the major sportsbooks see the Mets and Yankees factoring into the equation.

(All odds are current as of March 29, 2023)

World Series winner

Most books have the Mets in the top three to four of World Series odds, behind the Houston Astros (the favorite in most places), Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves. PointsBet has them tied for the third best odds (+850) with the Dodgers. The Mets’ odds are between +800 and +900 on most books.

The oddsmakers are very high on the Yankees’ chances this season, with most books having them as a close second behind the Astros. Their odds on most books are between +750 and +850, with the playoff-rival Astros sitting between +400 and +600.

Win totals

Most books see the Mets and Yankees on pace for very similar win totals. The Mets’ win total lands at 92.5-93.5 on most books, while the Yankees are just a tick higher at 93.5-94.5.

NL Cy Young

Could Justin Verlander earn his fourth career Cy Young during his first season in Queens? Caesars has Verlander as co-favorite for the award at +500, tied with 2021 winner Corbin Burnes. Verlander currently has the second best odds on BetMGM and PointsBet.

Max Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young winner in his own right, is in the top three to four on most books, with odds between +700 and +800.

And if you’re looking for some value, Kodai Senga has odds between +4000 and +8000 to win the Cy Young in his first MLB season.

AL Cy Young

The leader in the clubhouse on most books to take home the AL Cy Young award this season is someone very familiar among New York fans. As he gets set to begin his first season in Texas, former Met Jacob deGrom has the best Cy Young odds on most books, with odds between +400 and +600.
