New York Yankees -480
Tampa Bay Rays +550
Boston Red Sox +900
Toronto Blue Jays +3300

With the Boston Red Sox selling this offseason, the Yankees’ main competitor for the AL East is the Tampa Bay Rays.

Yankees Over-Under Win Totals
Over 100.5 (-118)
Under 100.5 (-106)
Only two teams have a win total prop set at 100.5, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees. The Yankees have juice on the over as well at -118.
