Look above for the latest 2024 Yankees game lines and futures odds.

How did the Yankees do last year?

The New York Yankees had an uncharacteristically down year in 2023, finishing 82-80 and missing the American League playoffs. That broke a streak of six straight years’ worth of Yanks postseason appearances.

NJ sportsbooks were nonetheless optimistic about the Yankees heading into 2024, with most putting their World Series title futures odds at around +1000. Only the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, and Houston Astros had shorter odds entering the season.

How to read a Yankees betting line

Yankees training sessionA typical Yankees game line at an NJ online sportsbook will look something like this:

  • Toronto Blue Jays (A. Manoah) +1.5 (+110) +140 O 4.5 (-110)
  • New York Yankees (N. Cortes) -1.5 (-110) -165 U 4.5 (-110)

First is the name of the teams with the projected starting pitchers in brackets. Next is the run line. Here, the Yankees are still slight favorites to win with a standard 1.5 run line factored into the final score.

The -110 odds on a Yankees run line bet mean you must bet $110 to win $100, plus your bet back, and the Yankees must win by two or more runs. The +110 odds on the Jays run line tells you that you can win $100, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet and the Jays can win outright or lose by just one run.

Next is the moneyline. Here, you bet on the Yankees to win outright and must bet $165 to win $100, plus your bet back. Or, you can bet on the Jays to win outright and get paid $140, plus your bet back, for every $100 you bet. Finally, the totals line is shown on both sides with odds on the over and under in brackets. You can bet $110 to win $100, plus your bet back, on either five or more combined runs scored, or four or under.

Yankees Vegas odds vs. online odds in NY/NJ

The Yankees are a popular team, which means people bet on them everywhere. That kind of action can force a sportsbook to move a line. The thing is, only the sportsbook where the big money is bet moves that line.

In other words, the lines​ on a typical Yankees game starts out the same everywhere, from NJ online sportsbooks to traditional Las​ Vegas​ sportsbooks. Then, when someone walks into a Vegas sportsbook and drops down a huge bet on the Yanks, that Vegas sportsbook might move the line to try to attract betting to the other side. NJ online sportsbooks will stand pat, until betting there forces them into action.

Local interest often drives​ betting,​ which means there’s usually more money bet locally on New York than elsewhere. The would normally equal a bigger chance a Yankees line will​ move​ at an NJ online sportsbooks than a traditional Las Vegas​ sportsbook. However, the Yankees worldwide popularity and place as a perennial betting favorite may be the exception to that rule, making the Vegas Yankees line as apt to change as the NJ Yankees line.

Ultimately, that means Yankees game lines start the same at NJ online sportsbooks and traditional Las​ Vegas​ sportsbooks, but either one might move at any time, making them different by the time the first pitch is thrown.

Yankees live betting

Want to quickly make up for some pregame betting mistakes or simply get more action down on the Yankees? You can do that now with live baseball betting on NJ online sportsbooks. In fact, live betting opens up a huge variety of increased betting opportunities to you with live odds that change with the action in the game.

That means many of the same markets you bet on before games at changing odds, plus inning-by-inning betting and live props at odds that are constantly changing based on things the score and inning.

Just remember that these odds change fast, making NJ sportsbook apps the best way to really get involved. Chances are you won’t get a bet down fast enough inside a retail sportsbook to wager effectively in live Yankees betting markets.

Why bet the Yankees over other MLB teams?

You should bet on the New York Yankees over other MLB teams simply because they win so often. In fact, the Yankees’ .570 lifetime regular season winning percentage is the best in the majors.

Win close to 60% of your bets on anything and you’re likely making a profit. The thing is, betting the Yankees moneyline often means laying money. However, the Yankees win so many games throughout a season, the small rewards may add up fast.

Of course, you may also find the Yankees as run line underdogs quite often, giving you the chance to bet one of baseball’s traditionally highest scoring teams winning by two runs or more and getting a favorable price on the bet. The truth is, you can be profitable betting the Yankees as run line underdogs by winning only 40% of these bets. As long as the prices are right, you’ll quickly make up for any losses by winning a few of these bets at decent odds.

Yankees FAQ

It’s hard to say what was the most ever bet on the Yankees, as sportsbooks don’t always go public with such information. However, it appears Jim ‘Mattress Mack’ McIngvale’s $11.6 million loss on the Houston Astros in the 2019 World Series might include the biggest MLB bet of all time.

Coincidentally, the Astros beat the Yankees in the AL Championship Series to get to the World Series in 2019. McIngvale spread the betting around, including a $3.5 million bet at the DraftKings sportsbook at Scarlet Pearl casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, which was the largest bet ever taken by a US sportsbook.

McIngvale had promised to use his winnings to refund mattress purchases at his furniture store, but the Astros lost. He did the same thing in 2017 when the Astros won and it cost him $13 million in refunds, much of which he layed off betting on the Astros in Las Vegas.

This list of celebrity Yankee fans is a long one. Rapper and business mogul Jay-Z “made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can,” but actor Billy Crystal might be the celebrity best known as a Yankee fan, having signed a one-day contract with the team in 2008 and getting an at-bat in a spring training game.

In 2024, the average Yankees ticket price is about $130, although there are many seats for which the cost is much less. Single game tickets for select games are available now at MLB.com.

The New York Yankees do not have an official mascot. Dandy, a large moustached and pinstriped bird wearing a Yankees cap, was the mascot from 1979 to 1981. However, George Steinbrenner once claimed he had no recollection of the mascot.

The Yankees Twitter/X account is @yankees. It uses the tagline “Official Twitter of the 27-time World Series Champions” and features a yankees.com/tickets link. The Yankees account has been active since May 2009 and boasts 3.4M million followers.

The Yankees are always one of the top rated teams in The Show MLB video game. In The Show 20, Aaron Judge was the top rated Yankee player at 95. That will likely hold true for The Show 22 as well.
