The New York Mets are fresh off a 101-win season and will look to build on their performance in 2023. After a disappointing first-round exit in the playoffs to the San Diego Padres, the Mets have reloaded their roster in hopes of making a deeper postseason run.

New York will be without long-time ace Jacob deGrom, who left the Big Apple during free agency to join the Texas Rangers. However, the Mets were quick to replace the two-time Cy Young award winner with three-time Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander.

The Mets starting rotation now consists of Verlander, future Hall of Famer Max Scherzer, Japanese import Kodai Senga, left-hander Jose Quintana, and veteran Carlos Carrasco. In addition, New York retained all-star closer Edwin Diaz in free agency, ensuring an anchor in the Mets bullpen.

New York will return mostly the same offense from the 2022 season after re-signing centerfielder Brandon Nimmo.

This should result in another successful campaign after the Mets were third in the National League (5th in MLB) in runs scored with 772.

New York Mets Top Betting Odds 2023

New York Mets MLB betting odds are current as of Dec. 17, 2022, from Caesars Sportsbook.

  • World Series Winners: (+850)
  • Win National League pennant: (+550)
  • Win NL East title: (+160)
  • Win Total: Over 94 (-110) | Under 94 (-110)

The Mets are among the top favorites to win both the National League and the World Series in 2023.

However, due to the steep competition in their own division, a wager on the pennant may be a better bet than winning the NL East.

Mets Futures Bets 2023

These are just examples. Change futures to suit the team.

Mets To Win World Series (+850) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

After missing co-aces deGrom and Scherzer for the majority of the 2022 season, the Mets finished with 101 wins.

However, a poor string of performances to end the year left them in the Wild Card round. The Mets’ top starting pitchers were unable to pull them into the next round.

New York was one of several 100-plus win teams to suffer an early exit in the playoffs but is in a strong position to make a run at the title this season.

If healthy, the Mets boast one of the most balanced teams in baseball.

Mets To Win NL Pennant (+550) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

As mentioned above, the Mets are a strong contender to reach and possibly win the World Series in 2023.

This means New York is obviously a strong contender to take home the National League pennant as well.

Mets To Win NL East (+160) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Oddly enough, this may be my least favorite futures bet for the Mets.

The roster is more than capable of taking the division, but at +160, it may not be an investment worth making. The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies are not going anywhere, and it should be a tight battle until the end.

Mets Win Over 94 Games (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

After winning 101 games last season, the Mets return a stronger overall roster in 2023.

They will not have the advantage of beating up on the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins. On the other hand, New York will not have to deal with Atlanta and Philadelphia nearly as much.

Bet the Over on the Mets hitting at least 95 wins.

Mets Player Prop Bets 2023

Pete Alonso: Leads MLB in Home Runs (+1200) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Polar Bear looks like he will be a perennial contender to league the major leagues in home runs.

After hitting 53 home runs in his rookie year, Pete Alonso has smashed 93 long balls over his last 1,366 at-bats.

Max Scherzer: Leads MLB in Strikeouts (+1000) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Due to an abundance of caution, Scherzer was limited to 145 1/3 innings last season. However, the former Cy Young winner still managed to strike out 173 batters.

If Mad Max is able to put together a full season, he should find himself among the league leaders in punchouts.

How to Bet Mets Moneylines

Moneyline bets are a simple way of wagering on MLB games. All you need to do is pick the winner of the game, and you’ll win your bet.

The odds are quite easy to understand, too. For example, if the Mets are a (-200) favorite, you would have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.

These odds will change every day depending upon the Mets matchup, so there’s always an opportunity for value every step of the way.

How to Bet Mets Run Line

Run Line betting is another common way to bet on MLB games, and you’re probably already familiar with it. You may know it as how much a team is “picked by" to win.

If the Mets are 1.5 run favorites over the Marlins, the Run Line would look something like this: Mets -1.5 (-200) vs Marlins +1.5 (+200).

In this scenario, the Mets would have to win by more than one run to cash your bet.

How to Bet Mets Over/Unders

If you’re unsure about the Mets’ moneyline or run line on a given day, you can still place a bet on the Over/Under — or total — in the matchup.

Sportsbooks will set a line for how many combined runs they project will be scored. From there, you can bet on the Over or Under.

For example, if you believe in the Mets’ offense and think it’ll be a high-scoring game, then you’ll want to take the Over. However, if it’s supposed to be more of a pitcher’s duel, you should go with the Under.
