The New York Mets’ odds to win the World Series in 2023 are +1600, as of June 10, ranking them sixth in MLB behind the Atlanta Braves (+500), Los Angeles Dodgers (+500), Tampa Bay Rays (+600), Houston Astros (+700), and New York Yankees (+900).
Prior to Opening Day, the online sportsbook had the Mets at +1100 to win the World Series. As the team has struggled to find their feet in the NL East, the Mets’ odds have fluctuated accordingly.
New York Mets World Series History
The Mets have won two World Series titles in their franchise’s history — 1969 and 1986.
Founded in 1962, the Mets won their first World Series title in their eighth year of existence (1969), becoming the first expansion team to win a division title, a pennant, and the World Series in the same season, and the fastest expansion team to win a World Series (at that time). They beat the Baltimore Orioles in five games to win the World Series, with Mets first baseman Donn Clendenon winning World Series MVP.
The Mets’ second and most recent World Series win was in 1986, meaning that as of the 2023 season, it’s been 37 years since the team’s last title.
In 1986, New York beat the Boston Red Sox in seven games to win the title. The Mets’ stunning comeback from a two-run deficit in Game 6 and eventual series win in Game 7 entered baseball lore as part of Boston’s Curse of the Bambino curse, a superstition used to explain the Red Sox’s championship drought after the 1918 World Series.
