Yankees Eight Games Better than the Second Place Team

The Yankees have been dominant this season and when we say that, we are not exaggerating. Last June 21st, the Yankees became the first team to win 50 games in the majors this season. Eight days later, New York is still the only team with at least 50 wins this season and they have a massive eight-game lead over the second-best team in baseball the Houston Astros.

At 46-20, the Astros are still four games short of 50 wins. The team that is closest to clinching win no. 50 is the New York Mets who are at 47-28. Meanwhile, the Yankees have gone 6-3 since picking up win no. 50 last June 21st and enter Thursday’s games having won their last four games and have matched the 2001 Mariners and 1998 Yankees for the best 76-game start in baseball since 1930.

Aaron Judge is the current betting favorite to win the 2022 AL MVP award. Judge and fellow heavy hitter Giancarlo Stanton bailed out the Yankees with home runs as they rallied to beat the Oakland Athletics 5-3. The win was the Yankees’ 24th come-from-behind win this season.

Mets Just Can’t Beat the Astros

The Mets were swept by the Houston Astros on Wednesday but despite that, the ‘other’ New York team is the second-most profitable team in MLB this season at 47-28 or +9.0 units entering Wednesday’s games. Wednesday’s loss gave the Mets their first three-game losing streak of the season. They were the last team in Major League Baseball to lose 3 in a row this season.

Although they are just 35-41 on the season, the Baltimore Orioles are the third most profitable team in baseball this season at +8.3 units. The Orioles have won only 43.7% of their games as betting underdogs. However, their 31 wins as bottom dogs are the most by any MLB team, thus making them profitable.

The San Diego Padres have the 5th best record in baseball at 45-31 and they are the 4th most profitable team in baseball this season at +5.6 units. San Diego’s 60% win rate as a betting underdog ( 15-10 record ) is the best for any team that has been bottom dog at least 20 times this season. Fifth on the list of most profitable MLB squads this season are the Houston Astros who are tied for the second-best record in the majors. Houston is a +4.9 units this season.
