The New York Yankees won the second most games in the regular season last year with 103 total wins. The only team that had more wins than them last season was the Los Angeles Dodgers. Both of those teams come in as co favorites to win the World Series for the 2020 Covid shortened season. The Yankees look to be the team to beat in the American League on paper. Here’s a Yankees season preview.

- D.J. LeMahieu

The Yankees dealt with a lot of injuries last season and they still won 103 regular season games. It will be fun to see what they can do this season and if they can stay healthy. Slugger Aaron Judge is already dealing with a sore neck but the Yankees don’t believe it will be a long term problem.

New York Yankees Best Bets 2020
I think that the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to win the World Series this season but I do think that the Yankees will represent the American League. With that said, you can bet on the Yankes to win the A.L. right now at 8 to 5 odds which is pretty good value. You can also bet on them to win the American League East at 1 to 3 odds. The Tampa Bay Rays finished 7 games behind the Yankees last season. The Red Sox have no starting pitching. The race for the division may look closer than it really is due to the shortened season but I don’t see any way the Yankees don’t finish on top.
The Yankees 2020 season win total is set at 37 games. They won 103 out of 162 last season which is 64%. They will be playing 60 games this season and if they win 64% of those games, they will finish with 38 regular season wins. As mentioned before, they dealt with injuries last season and still finished with 103 wins. They will get to play the Baltimore Orioles, Toronto Blue Jays, and Boston Red Sox 10 times each this season which don’t seem to be much of a threat on paper. Best bets as far as the likelihood of happening are Yankees to win Division, Yankees to win over 37 games, and Yankees to win American League.
