Just as predicted, the Yankees odd went from +2000 to +1500 overnight with the Aroldis Chapman trade coming down.
If you had them with one of our own best bets last week, then you capitalized on the best odd you are going to get from the Bronx Bombers this winter.
So how exactly do the oddsmakers have so much faith in the Left Handed Reliever? Well it has more to do with the masses betting on New York with given hope.
We outlined at the MLB Reports about their coming season. With Chapman in the fold, forthcoming suspension withstood, the Yankees will have the man even for just 4 months.
The Yankees will won a ton of games if they are leading after 5 innings, and with the top 3 Strikeout ratio Relievers, these guys could come up huge in the playoffs for next campaign.
if you bet the Yanks, or believe they are not done shopping in the Free Agent Market yet, that +1500 odd is still not a bad wager.
Chapman’s contract makes him a Free Agent after 2016 (unless he is suspended for more than 35 days in 2016). Something the Yankees wouldn’t mind as that would give him another year of Arbitration.
I have to believe this trade also signifies that the brass will pull several more deals with players on the last year of Team Control – and that the ownership has said okay to doing this.
The Yankees are pegged about right for their odd right now at +1500. I would peg them for 88 – 90 wins with this move, which should have them within earshot of the Red Sox and Blue Jays now.
The only other big move over the last week was the Nationals inking Daniel Murphy to a deal. This contract dropped the Mets down to be at par with Washington by the oddsmakers.
I still would favor the Mets slightly for the Division right now, however both clubs have the easiest path to the playoffs in my view out of the National League.
This is the same reason why the Royals are still giving out great odds at +1200. Although I can’t give KC the nod on this website, because we have seen them at better odds on other websites – including a ridiculously great bet here at +2500.
A lot of our favorites and dislikes for value remain the same since last week.
