New York Yankees 2024 World Series Odds

New York Yankees MLB Betting

As a perennially top-ranked payroll club, the New York Yankees are not getting much bang for the buck. Nor are their fans, who pay some of the highest prices in sports to attend games or watch on TV. For the first time since 2016 and the fourth time since 1995, the Yankees missed the playoffs in 2023. The Yankees' last World Series championship was in 2009, their only title since winning three in a row from 1998 through 2000. For all their advantages, the Yankees are not taking advantage. As always, New York remains a popular ticket on the 2024 future market.

In 2023, the New York Yankees had a record of 82-80 and finished 4th in the American League East Division. Offensively, New York ranked 25th for runs scored, 29th for batting average, 24th for OPS, 9th for home runs, and 21st for stolen bases. Defensively, New York ranked 9th for earned run average, 6th for WHIP, 20th for strikeouts, 24th for quality starts, 25th for fewest errors, and 1st for bullpen ERA. New York was -589 on the moneyline and -522 on the run line.

Last season, the Yankees were the biggest disappointment in baseball and a source of frustration for gamblers. New York had a huge payroll, but its roster proved to be inadequate both at the plate and in the starting rotation.

Key offseason acquisitions include OF Juan Soto, OF Alex Verdugo, RHP Marcus Stroman, OF Trent Grisham, LHP Caleb Ferguson, LHP Victor González

Key offseason departures include RHP Luis Severino, RHP Michael King, LHP Wandy Peralta, C Kyle Higashioka, and INF/OF Isiah Kiner-Falefa.

In acquiring Juan Soto from the Padres, the Yankees made the single best move possible this winter. New York needed a left-handed bat, they needed a corner outfielder, they needed a younger star, and they acquired the best option to fill all three. Soto alters the entire dynamic of New York’s lineup.

The Yankees’ other moves were improvements, too. Marcus Stroman signed for less and for a shorter time than expected. Trent Grisham is a nice throw-in for a team that could use a legit center fielder. And New York’s made its usual solid moves to lengthen its bullpen, even if it eschewed larger-scale additions there.

New York ranks 1st for MLB payroll.

New York Yankees Key Players

RHP Gerrit Cole remains the number one starter. Cole is a six-time All-Star and was the 2023 AL Cy Young Award winner. Last year, Cole was 15-4 with a 2.63 ERA and 0.98 WHIP.

RHP Clay Holmes is the Yankee closer. He was a 2022 AL All-Star. In 2023, Holmes was 4-4 with a 2.88 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He saved 24 games in 27 opportunities.

CF Aaron Judge played in only 106 games in 2023 after his record-setting 62-home-run campaign in 2022. Last year, Judge produced 79 runs, 16 doubles, 37 home runs, 75 runs batted in with a .267 average and 1.019 OPS.

New York Yankees Manager

Manager Aaron Boone has been in his role since 2018 and has a career record of 509-361. Boone was hired to win the World Series, which he has yet to make. If the late Boss George Steinbrenner were alive, Boone would have been fired two or three times by now.
