With Major League Baseball and all other major sports on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is hopeful that the season will begin at some point in May.
While June and perhaps July are likelier target dates for the start of the season, one thing has remained constant for the Mets -- even with the team recently losing Noah Syndergaard for the season.
Their odds to win the NL East and reach/win the World Series have not moved much.
Here are the current NL East odds, per Bovada:
Atlanta Braves: +175
Washington Nationals: +250
Philadelphia Phillies: +325
Miami Marlins: +15000
The NL East is expected to be tight if/when the season gets underway, and PECOTA projected in February that the Mets would be the team that came out on top.
Soon after news came out that Syndergaard needed Tommy John surgery, William Hill Sports Book listed the Mets' current World Series odds at +1700 -- tied with the Braves for fifth-best in baseball.
The only teams with better World Series odds than the Mets, per William Hill, are the Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, and Twins.
Bovada did not have new World Series odds as of Wednesday morning, but the William Hill odds were similar to the ones released on Bovada on Feb. 3 that had the Mets at +1800 to win it all, behind only the Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, Braves, Nationals, and Twins.
