New York Mets MLB Betting

In the 2023 MLB future market, no team produced a hotter ticket than the New York Mets. The Mets blew apart their budget to overtake the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees for the highest payroll in the game. However, by the end of the first month of the 2023 season, it was quite clear that the Mets were a dead-end club. New York will go down as one of the biggest future market frauds in baseball betting history. This year, the Mets have the second-highest payroll in MLB.

In 2023, the New York Mets had a record of 75-87 and finished 4th in the National League East Division. Offensively, New York ranked 20th for runs scored, 25th for batting average, 18th for OPS, 10th for home runs, and 14th for stolen bases. Defensively, New York ranked 19th for earned run average, 21st for WHIP, 10th for strikeouts, 12th for quality starts, 17th for fewest errors, and 22nd for bullpen ERA. New York was -1967 on the moneyline and -1651 on the run line.

Last season, it was no surprise that an over-hyped team that fell far short of expectations was one of the biggest money losers on the board. Gamblers were obliterated for backing the Mets in 2023. Unforgiving gamblers are not shopping them much in the 2024 future market. Contrarian gamblers wonder if this is the time to swoop in for the discount price.

Key offseason acquisitions: RHP Luis Severino, LHP Sean Manaea, OF Harrison Bader, INF Joey Wendle

Key offseason departures: RHP Max Scherzer, RHP Justin Verlander, RHP David Robertson, OF Tommy Pham (all at the 2023 Trade Deadline)

The Mets made good on their promise to stay active all winter without shopping in the most expensive aisles. After their pursuit of Yoshinobu Yamamoto fell short, the team went bargain hunting for pitchers on short-term deals -- Severino, Manaea, and Adrian Houser for the rotation, as well as Jorge López, Jake Diekman, and Shintaro Fujinami for the bullpen. They also made modest additions to their lineup and bench in the hopes of competing for a Wild Card spot.

Gamblers ask if the Mets did enough. Their bullpen seems strong, but the Mets are relying on several starting pitchers with long injury histories, as well as essentially the same lineup that finished 20th in the Majors in runs per game last season. There are no guarantees that this mini-overhaul will work.

New York ranks 2nd for MLB payroll.
