Betting Odds Will Change After Johan Santana Trade To Mets
The New York Mets are coming off a season in which they put themselves and their fans through one of the worst collapses in the history of baseball.
Going into the off season, the pressure was on General Manager Omar Minaya to bring in the type of player that would help the organization forget last years horrible end to their season.
On Tuesday, Minaya made possibly the biggest trade in the history of the Mets. Johan Santana, the best pitcher in baseball was dealt to the Mets for four prospects.
The trade will not only make the Mets one of the favorites in the National League, but also a favorite to win the World Series. Sports books scurried today to pull off their baseball futures odds after hearing of the potential trade.
The smart guess would be that those odds will not again appear for the Mets until after they negotiate with Santana on an extension. Once that is complete and all players pass physicals, the trade will be complete. Then you can expect that sports books will re post the odds, and most likely the Mets will be a much lower price to win it all than they were last weekend.
