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 (97-57) are among the top five favorites to win the World Series and trail only the LA Dodgers (106-47) 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
The Mets have won eight of their last 10 games, and that’s a great thing, too. The Braves keep winning at almost the same rate.
New York is 1.5 games ahead of Atlanta in the NL East with eight games left in the regular season. The Mets host the Miami Marlins Tuesday and Wednesday before hitting the road for a three-game series in Atlanta that could decide which team wins the division.
Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker will pitch against the Marlins, which means aces Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer will go against the Braves.
There will be more eyes than usual on deGrom’s start because he has struggled lately relative to his usual pristine stat lines. In his first 43 1/3 innings since returning from the Injured List on Aug. 2, deGrom allowed eight earned runs. In his last three starts, however, he has allowed 11 earned runs in 15 innings. Saturday’s outing against Oakland was especially troubling because deGrom walked four batters in five innings. He had walked four in his previous 54 1/3 innings.
