New York Yankees Pick

Yankees To Win AL East (-190)

In February, I projected the Yankees’ divisional chances at 67.2%. Since that time, the Blue Jays sustained injuries to both George Springer and Nate Pearson, while the Rays lost closer Nick Anderson for at least half the season with an elbow injury. Based upon current projections from ATC, FanGraphs, and PECOTA, the Yankees’ AL East chances range from 68-89%.

At the more conservative end of that projection (implied -212), there isn’t enough of an edge for me to place a wager — and I generally don’t lay this much juice on any MLB futures. I do make their current divisional chances 77.2%, implied odds of -339, so if you’re highly confident in this Yankees team, I wouldn’t talk you out of this bet.
