FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook have their future odds in place for a number of sporting events. Teams in New York feature some of the best, and worst, odds and value across their respective leagues. Some New York teams, such as the Yankees, not only provide excellent value but also have great chances of winning a championship. Other teams, like the Jets, may have made some big off-season moves to better their team, but are still ways away from competing for a title.

New York Jets
The New York Jets have their win prediction set at around seven games. FanDuel has their win total set at 7 while DraftKings is set at 7.5. The addition of Le’Veon Bell may have many Jets’ fans excited, but one player (who sat out the entire previous season) can’t cover up all of the holes this team has. Based on their schedule, the Jets should only win about five or six games, so the UNDER is the best bet. None of their champion odds should be taken seriously.
New York Giants
The New York Giants are in an even worse situation than the Jets. While the Jets at least added a big named running back to their roster, they also have Sam Darnold looking like their franchise quarterback. The Giants are still stuck in the mud with Eli Manning at quarterback and sent their best player, Odell Beckham Jr., to the Cleveland Browns. Once Manning begins the season on a losing streak (most likely starting the season 1-5), Giants fans will be calling for Daniel Jones to replace him. The odds of Jones winning more than five of the teams last 10 games is unlikely. UNDER six wins is the best bet on FanDuel. As with the Jets, any championship bets on the Giants are a waste of money.
New York Knicks
Not only did the Knicks miss out on Zion Williamson when they didn’t land the first overall pick in the draft, but they missed out in free agency as well. Many thought that Kevin Durant and possibly other big-name players like Kyrie Irving would be headed to New York. Well, they did, except not to the Knicks. Based on the team’s current roster, the UNDER on their win total is a great bet.
The Brooklyn Nets won the Kevin Durant sweepstakes and added in Kyrie Irving as well. Basically stealing the two players that were expected to go to cross-town rival New York Knicks. Don’t expect to see Durant playing at all this season (although miracles happen), but this team will still be improved this season. Brooklyn won 42 games last season and their win total is around 47 games for both FanDuel and DraftKings. Look for the Nets to get 50 wins this season and hit the OVER on both books. There is also solid value in betting the Nets to win the Atlantic Division, but without Durant, that will be about as far as they will go this season.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are the best team in New York right now across all sports. They have the best odds of winning a title this season and seem to be on pace to do just that. Despite all of their injuries this season, the Yankees are one of the best, if not the best, team in the Majors. Despite the low payout, you can bank on the Yankees winning the A.L. East. They are also a great team to take to win the A.L. as well as the World Series.
New York Mets
Mets fans once again are suffering a losing season despite their pre-season aspirations being so high. They brought in plenty of big-name players this offseason, but injuries and subpar play have led them to a sub .500 season pace. You can get one hell of a payout on the Mets winning the World Series, or even their division. However, you can chalk the bet up as a loss as soon as you place it. The team’s bullpen will end any hopes that the offense can generate. Time for the Mets to tear down and rebuild around their young core of Michael Conforto, Jeff McNeil, and Pete Alonso (as well as Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard on the mound).
