The Bronx Tales: Betting the Futures for the 2023 New York Yankees (Presented by DraftKings)
Updated: Apr 3
Brace yourselves for a Bias Yankees Betting Blog. I would be remised to not write about some Yankees futures that I wagered, but to be frank, I find these all realistic. I am not out here flaunting a World Series title, or Judge back-to-back MVPs, or a Gerrit Cole CY Young. I dropped some realistic and achievable bets to help you all gamble responsibly (call 1-800-gambler if you have any issues). So let's dive right into it.
Wins, Records, Playoffs
Regular Season Win Bands
92-97 Wins (+245)
M Yankees have hit this mark back-to-back seasons. Now, I would love to say they regain the 100 win marks, but with injuries and being more on the conversative side, I like them at the 96-97 range.
Division Straight Forecast
1st NYY / 2nd TOR (+310)
People are bullish on Toronto, and I think they are a good team, but I still don't belive they have the juice to jump the Yankees. Having them finishing second feels right, especially with the rest of the division. The Rays will contend for a wild card, and so will the O's. The Red Sox? That's a blog for another day.
NY Mets & NY Yankees to both record 90+ Regular Season Wins
Selfishly, I want a Subway Series World Series, but realistically, I think both teams are at the top of the table, and will cruise past the 90 win mark.
Yankees, Guardians, Astros, Mets, Cardinals & Dodgers all to Make the Playoffs
This seems like a safe pick. All of these teams are eying to win their respective divisions, so with the extra wild card, I love this parlay.
Aaron Judge Regular Season Total HRs
Over 45.5 (+110)
It'll be a tough act to follow from last season, but there is no stopping Aaron Judge. Yes, he had to prove himself and his worth for the contract, but now he has to seal the deal and become an all-time great. Some people are saying he might break the record again, and I don't think it's crazy. 45 homers is a low number, so take the over and win some cash.

Giancarlo Stanton Regular Season Total HRs
Over 30.5 (-105)
Stanton is finally in his pinstripes grove, and if he plays some outfield this year, I think it will correlate to him having a better season at the plate. Weird, right? But it keeps him lose and agile. Stanton has back-to-back 30 homer seasons, I think this year we could even see 40.
Stanton to hit 400th MLB Career Home Run during 2023 MLB Regular Season
This is free money. Stanton currently sits at 378, a mere 22 homers which he's cleared in each of the past two seasons. As long as he's healthy, this is a sure lock.
Gerrit Cole Regular Season Total Strikeouts Thrown
Over 234.5 (-105)
Take away the COVID season, and Cole has done this every year since 2017. He is a strikeout machine, and this is a no brainer pick.
Rookie of the Year
Anthony Volpe (+500)
At this rate, you have to throw this bet in! What a spring training for the kid, and what a story. Living his childhood dream, getting shoutouts from Jeter, and of course crushing a casual line of .308/.438/.590 this spring, at 21 years old nonetheless. If he flashes the leather and swipes the bases like he's done in the minors, and collects a nice stat line at bat, this is a sweet play.
