Ets GM Brodie Van Wagenen has said»come get us» regarding the group’s competitors from the NL East this year. And when it comes to the Mets’ chances to win the World Series, they’re on pretty equal footing.
Even the Mets, Nationals, and Braves have 16/1 odds to win the World Series, while the Phillies — strangely — have 10/1 odds, based on BetOnline.
BetOnline must be gambling that the Phillies land among those megastar free agents still on the market — Bryce Harper or even Manny Machado. But landing among these players might not even vault the Phillies to the peak of the branch.
The Marlins, that are expected to become among the worst teams in baseball this season, have 150/1 chances.
Baseball Prospectus now projects the Nationals to win 89 games, with the Mets at 88, also Braves and Phillies both in 85.
The Yankees have the best odds to win the title, at 6/1, followed by the Red Sox and Astros in 7/1, and Dodgers in 9/1. The worst odds belong to the Orioles, that are 250/1.
