2021 New York Yankees World Series, win total, pennant and division odds

The 2020 New York Yankees finished second on the American League East, won a Wildcard Series, then fell, 3-2, to the eventual AL champion Tampa Bay Rays in a Division Series. An oft-injured lineup is looking to get heathy with added roster pieces of a high-risk-high-yield variety. We look at the New York Yankees’ MLB futures odds, including their projected 2021 win total and World Series odds at BetMGM.

After 22 games last year, New York was 16-6 with a two-game lead in the AL East standings. A banged-up and streaky ball club went 17-21 the rest of the way. For the season, the Yankees ranked first in the AL in runs, at 5.25 per game. They led the AL in on-base percentage, but did exhibit some blind spots against lefty pitching (.715 OPS, ninth AL) and struggled on the road (.677, 14th AL).

1B Luke Voit (league-best 22 home runs) and 2B DJ LeMahieu (.364/.421/.590 batting/on-base/slugging) paced the offense. The Yankees continued previous years’ issues with injuries. RF Aaron Judge and DH Giancarlo Stanton played 51 games combined. SS Gleyber Torres never got going after the COVID-19 stutter start and missed nearly a third of the season while compiling a pedestrian .724 OPS.

RHP Gerrit Cole was tremendous in posting a 12-start 2.84 ERA to lead New York hurlers. Cole logged 30 strikeouts in 18 1/3 postseason innings (while notching a 2.95 ERA).

New York Yankees’ 2021 win total

Over/Under: 95.5 (O: -110 | U: -110)

The success of the 2021 edition of Bronx Bombers baseball will likely revolve around two risk/reward additions in RHPs Corey Kluber and Jameson Taillon, and the rest of the club displaying even a league-average level of health.

If Kluber and Taillon produce and RHP Luis Severino can make an effective late-season return from Tommy John surgery, a healthy lineup with good pitching can crank out a 100-win season.

That seems like too many ifs and a few that aren’t exactly likable propositions. TAKE THE UNDER 95.5 (-110).
