The hype surrounding the Bronx Bombers is real as spring training kicks off, as the New York Yankees are favored by a slim margin to win the 2019 World Series.

According to, the Yankees (6/1 odds) have an edge over the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros, both of whom have 7/1 odds to win the 2019 World Series.

Manager Aaron Boone knows his team is a hot item right now ahead of the 2019 season. He discussed this and offered a fairly standard take on it on Wednesday as the Yankees kicked off spring training.

Last year the Yankees were booted out of the MLB Playoffs in four games by their hated rival, Boston, which went on to win it all. Needless to say, it’ll probably come down to New York needing to beat the Red Sox once more in the playoffs this year, assuming they make it to begin with.
