The MLB lockout is now seven weeks old, but there’s still time to look to the future – and right now, the future says New York is in good position for a potential World Series title in 2021.

New odds have come out Tuesday, what should be four weeks out from teams beginning to report to Spring Training, and our friends at FanDuel Sportsbook list the Mets at +1100 and the Yankees at +1200 to win the 2022 World Series, ranking them tied for third and tied for fifth, respectively.

FanDuel has a Dodgers-Astros rematch as the likely Fall Classic, Los Angeles +600 and Houston +1000 right now to recreate the 2017 Series five years later. The Mets are tied with the White Sox at +1100, while the Yankees share +1200 with the division rival Blue Jays.

Atlanta, the 2021 champion, is tied for seventh with Tampa Bay and San Diego at +1400, while Milwaukee (+1800) rounds out the Top 10. Boston and St. Louis, +1800 each, are tied for 11th, and the bottom of the barrel has the Pirates and Orioles at +50000 – which means, of course, that if one of them were to pull a Leicester City, they could earn you a cool $500 per $1 you bet on them.

Other major sportsbooks in the Tri-State Area seem to agree, as DraftKings’ Top 5 is Dodgers (+650), Yankees (+900), Astros (+950), Mets (+1000), and then Blue Jays/White Sox (+1200), while BetMGM has the Dodgers (+600) and Astros (+900) 1-2 with the Yankees, Mets, and White Sox tied at +1100 and the Jays at +1300.

Of course, all of this is contingent on a lot of things – the lockout ending and future free agent signings or trades, chief among them – but the Mets have already made quite a splash via free agency as it is, so it’s legitimate that they may win their first Series since ’86, or even the Yankees get their first since 2009.
