The New York Mets are second in the National League and maintain a small lead in the NL East Division. The Mets’ 2022 World Series odds are strong because of that.
The team from Queens is recovering well from a disappointing season riddled with injuries and controversy last year, but the team is showing a stunning recovery this year, with New York fans pumped up for the postseason.
The Mets led the National League nearly every week since Opening Day through the end of July, posting great stats on the road and at home in Citi Field. Francisco Lindor, in particular, seems to have got into his New York groove and is on fire this season. It’s a different team from 2021, and we’re excited to see if they can keep up the momentum. The LA Dodgers have taken over the top spot in the NL, and are cruising to the No. 1 seed for the MLB playoffs.
So, what do the Mets’ odds look like to win the World Series? New York sports bettors can get all the odds on the Mets here.
NY Mets Odds to Win the World Series
The Mets (93-55) are among the top five favorites to win the World Series and trail only the LA Dodgers (101-44) in the National League.
The team from Queens has shaped up to be a formidable force this season, even with aces Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer missing an extended period of time. Stars like Lindor, Eduardo Escobar, and Pete Alonso have held the team together and continued to rack up wins. But now Scherzer and deGrom are back, so the Mets are ready to hit full stride.

NY Mets Odds to Win the NL Pennant
The odds to win the NL Pennant are even stronger for the Mets:
The Mets have led the NL East for most of the season and had a comfortable lead in the National League as a whole in June. As of Sept. 19, however, the Dodgers have a 9.5-game lead over the Mets in the National League, and the Mets’ lead in the NL East is down to 1 game.
NY Mets Update
Just when it looked like the Mets might let their division lead slip away, they ripped off a four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates to maintain their slim edge over the Braves (91-55).
The good news keeps coming for New York, as Max Scherzer (oblique injury) is set to return to the mound for Monday’s series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s great timing for Scherzer to come back because the Mets can clinch a playoff berth with a win. They are seeking their first postseason appearance since 2016.
There are 14 games left in the regular season, and with the Braves so close in the standings, all eyes will be on the three-game set between the Mets and Braves from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. First things first, though, as New York faces the Brewers and the Oakland Athletics three times apiece this week.
