For the 2021 MLB preseason, The Game Day has compiled 2021 Yankees Prop Bets, including New York Futures Odds & Picks. These picks include 2021 Yankees Team Prop bets as well as 2021 Yankees player props.
The New York Yankees are the favorites to win the 2021 AL East title and have an over/under total of 96.5 wins. Coming off a playoff appearance where the Bronx Bombers lost to the eventual American League champion Tampa Bay Rays, the Yankees resigned DJ LeMahieu and restocked their pitching staff with the signing of Corey Kluber and trading for Jameson Taillon.
The Yankees have all the pieces to win a World Series and the following Yankees Player Props and 2021 Yankees Futures Bets reflect that. With so many 2021 Yankees Player Prop options, here are a few of my favorites as we head into the upcoming season.

Yankees Futures Bets: 2021 Team & Player Props
Player Props & Futures
2021 AL MVP
- Aaron Judge (+1200)
- DJ LeMahieu (+3000)
LeMahieu finished third in the AL MVP voting last season and fourth the season before. Getting 30-to-1 odds on a player that is perennially in the mix is simply too good to pass up. Aaron Judge has the shortest AL MVP odds for any Yankees player and finished second in the AL MVP race in 2017 — a season during which he hit 52 homers, had 114 RBI and scored 128 runs. For Judge, it’s all about staying healthy, and those 12-to-1 odds could provide a nice payout come season’s end.
Most Regular Season Hits
- DJ LeMahieu (+1200)
LeMahieu won the AL batting title last season with a .364 average and was only seven hits off the MLB lead in hits. Trea Turner was tops with 78 hits in 59 games while LeMahieu had 71 in 50 contests. Had LeMahieu played a few more games, he almost undoubtedly would have led the Majors in hits. In the 2019 regular season, LeMahieu again fell just short with 197 hits to Whit Merrifield‘s MLB-best 206. I think this is finally the year that LeMahieu tops 200 hits and tallies the most hits in the upcoming regular season.
Most Regular Season Home Runs
- Aaron Judge (+2000)
- Giancarlo Stanton (+2000)
It was another Yankee, Luke Voit, that led the Majors in home runs (22) during the 60-game 2020 season. However, I’m betting on two other Yankees to potentially accomplish that feat in 2021. In 2017, Stanton led the Majors with 59 while Judge jacked 52. If these two hitters can stay healthy, and that’s a big if, then either one could end up atop the home run list at the end of the 2021 season.
