Few teams in all of professional sports leagues across the globe have a more storied and successful history than the New York Yankees. With 27 World Series titles, the Yankees are far and away the most accomplished franchise in all of Major League Baseball (MLB).

By that, albeit absurd, standard, the Yankees as of late have struggled to return to glory, especially as of their most recent season. In 2023, the Yankees missed the postseason for the first time since 2016, despite their ace pitcher Gerrit Cole earning MLB’s Cy Young Award for being the most outstanding pitcher in the league.

Looking into 2024, Cole returns along with a stacked (per usual) pitching rotation that includes Clarke Schmidt, Carlos Rodon, and Nestor Cortes. Out in the field, 2022 MLB MVP Aaron Judge returns to the Pinstripes, in addition to Anthony Rizzo, Juan Soto, Giancarlo Standon, and DJ LeMahieu. Can manager Aaron Boone return the Yanks to the promised land? Continue reading for everything else you need to know about the New York Yankees odds in New Jersey.

Whether you are reading this during the MLB season or in the offseason, there is no shortage of ways to get involved in betting on baseball. Let’s take a look at just a few of the most popular bet types for the New York Yankees you can make today.

  • Money line: The most straightforward way to bet on sports, a money line bet is simply a wager on which team will win the game, at the current odds. Teams with a negative sign (-) next to their odds are the favorites, while teams with a positive sign (+) next to their name are the underdogs.

Example: New York Yankees (-180) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (+160). In this scenario, the Yankees are heavy favorites against the Phillies and require you to risk $180 to win a total of $280 ($180 risked + $100 won).

  • Run Line: Baseball’s term for a “Point Spread”, a Run Line is how many runs an oddsmaker forecasts a team to win (or lose) by. Set at +/- 1.5, the team with the -1.5 next to their odds has to win the game by at least two runs to be graded a winner.

Example: New York Yankees (-1.5) vs. Seattle Mariners (+1.5). In this scenario, the Yankees have to beat the Mariners by at least two runs (i.e. 4-2, 7-3, 2-0, etc.) for a Yankees’ Run Line bet to be a winner.

  • Total: Baseball's term for an “Over/Under”, a Total is how many runs an oddsmaker forecast to be scored in the game, in total. The total runs scored are calculated by combining how many runs each team’s score.

Example: New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox (O/U 6.5). In this scenario, the Yankees and Red Sox would have to combine to score more than six runs (i.e. 6-1, 8-0, 5-2, etc.) for the “Over” to be a winner. The opposite would be true for the “Under” to be a winner.

  • Futures: Making a “Futures” bet in baseball is betting on an outcome that is decided at the end of the season. This could be a prediction on which team will win the World Series, their division, how many regular season wins they will accrue, and much more.

Example: New York Yankees to Win AL East Division (+130). In this scenario, you are betting on the Yankees to win the AL’s East Division when the regular season is over. While you can make this wager before the season even starts, you can also make it in-season nearly any time they are not actively on the field.

History of the New York Yankees

With 27 World Series Titles to their name, the New York Yankees have a history that goes back more than 120 years and is one of the most storied in all of American sports. Let’s take a deeper dive at how they started and made their way to the organization they are today.

  • 1903: Bill Devery and Frank Farrell purchased Baltimore’s MLB franchise for $18,000 moving the team to Upper Manhattan. Becoming a member of the American League, the Yankees opened Hilltop Park and initially called the team the “Highlanders.”
  • 1913: The Highlanders officially renamed their organization to the “Yankees”, and moved to the Polo Grounds, the home of the National League team New York Giants.
  • 1921: A year after signing Babe Ruth from their rival Boston Red Sox, the Yankees claimed their first AL Pennant. Six years later, Ruth would break his own record with 60 home runs in a season.
  • 1923: In the first year they moved into their newly built Yankee Stadium, they would go on to face the New York Giants in the World Series and win their first of 27 World Series Championships.
  • 1932: Yankee great Lou Gehrig would make history when he became the first MLB player to hit four home runs in a single day. He would be honored seven years later on July 4, 1939, when his number was retired, the first in Yankees history.
  • 1961: Another all-time Yankees great, Roger Maris, broke Ruth’s single-season home run record by hitting 61 home runs in a single season.
  • 1973: George Steinbrenner bought the New York Yankees from CBS, starting an era of Yankees greatness which would include seven World Series from 1977 to 2009.
  • 2009: The most iconic New York Yankee of our time, Derek Jeter, would beat former Yankee Lou Gehrig’s career hits record and get his 2,671 career hit. This was also the year of the Yankees' most recent World Series title.

Often featuring the most talented hitters and pitchers in all of baseball, the Yankees have the ability on any given night to light up (or shut down) a scoreboard for the opposing team.

How do injuries impact betting odds for Yankees games?

Injuries impact betting odds for Yankees games in several ways, with many focused on the health of the team’s pitching staff. If the Yankees have a pitcher who usually comes in relief for the starters injured, that can impact how well the team does to keep runs off the board late in games. If hitters who have been on hot streaks are suddenly removed from the lineup due to injury, that can also affect the Yankees' odds in terms of lower Totals and higher odds on money lines and run lines.

What are the legal considerations for betting on the Yankees in New York?

One of the legal considerations for betting on the Yankees in New York is that not all online sportsbooks available in NJ are available in NY. Online sportsbook apps use geotagging location to determine which state you are in before you can place a bet on the Yankees (and others).
