Mets odds hold steady depsite Cespedes opt-out
Mon, Aug 3rd 9:59am EDT
It is somewhat surprising that New York's odds did not plummet further after Cespedes's opt-out. At 3-7, the Mets are currently just a half-game better than the Pittsburgh Pirates who own the worst record in baseball. The +290 odds are tied for second with the Washington Nationals. The Atlanta Braves seemed to be the biggest beneficiaries of the Cespedes news. They have seen their odds lower from +180 to +175 to win the NL East division.
