The Mets opened at 20-1 odds to win the 2018 World Series, according to a list released by the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
The Mets' odds were the eighth-best in the majors. The seven teams above them -- the Dodgers (5-1), Indians (6-1), Astros (6-1), Nationals (7-1), Yankees (8-1), Red Sox (10-1), and Cubs (10-1) -- all made the playoffs this past season.
Meanwhile, the Mets finished with a record of 70-92.
They entered the season with World Series aspirations, but those hopes were dashed as the team dealt with significant injuries to Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz, Yoenis Cespedes, Jeurys Familia, Michael Conforto, and a host of others.
After injuries contributed to the Mets being out of contention around the trade deadline, they dealt Jay Bruce, Curtis Granderson, Lucas Duda, Neil Walker, and Addison Reed.
Of the Mets' other NL East counterparts, the Braves have 50-1 odds, while the Marlins and Phillies both have 80-1 odds.
The Tigers, listed at 300-1, have the worst odds in baseball.
