While pundits and fans alike debate whether the Mets made a dire mistake not completing the Carlos Correa signing, Vegas has weighed in with its thoughts on how it impacts the New York Mets' World Series chances.
Turns out, not so much.
The Mets' World Series odds dipped a bit following the news that Correa was heading back to Minnesota, but, on FanDuel, they remain tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the third-best odds in the MLB at +750. They were +650 on FanDuel when news broke that Correa was expected to sign with them, but the line has since moved.
Correa's former team and the defending World Series champion Houston Astros remain the favorites followed by the New York Yankees, Mets and Dodgers.
As you can see above, depending on the book you follow you can get the Mets at +1000 odds, which is far higher than the number I mentioned above. But I've been following MLB futures on FanDuel, so I can only report based on that.
Either way, seeing the Mets with the same odds to win the title as the San Diego Padres is interesting. Sure, San Diego beat us during the playoffs, but we're a better team now than we were then and I'm confident we'll continue to make moves around the trade deadline. Not saying to drop a monster bet on the Mets. Just saying I like where we're headed.
The Mets are tied with the Atlanta Braves with the best odds to win the NL East, and ultimately that's where I'm focused. After last season's collapse, the Mets understand now more than ever how important it'll be to win the division. I feel confident, based on our domination of the league for most of the season last year, we'll be in a position to win it again so I'm going to sprinkle a few bucks on us to win the divison.
Either way now's the time to pad your pockets with the offers FanDuel and DraftKings have for the NFL playoffs. I guarantee these deals won't last so if you're looking to pad your pockets with $350 guaranteed in free bets, pull the trigger now using the links below.
