2024 MLB National League East Division Winner Odds

The Atlanta Braves are favored to win the National League East for a seventh consecutive year in 2024.

It's been more than a half-decade of dominance in the NL East for Atlanta, who have recorded back-to-back 100+ win seasons entering 2024.

Let's take a look at the leading teams to win the NL East ahead of the start of the 2024 MLB season.

MLB NL East 2024 - To Win Division

ATL Braves

-280

PHI Phillies

+300

NY Mets

+1000

MIA Marlins

+2500

WAS Nationals

+12500

Atlanta Braves -280

The Braves are perennially one of the best teams in baseball, and that doesn't look to be changing any time soon.

The 2021 World Series champs are geared up for another championship-or-bust season, with a stacked lineup including 2023 NL MVP Ronald Acuna Jr, 2023 MLB home run leader Matt Olson, and Austin Riley to name a few. Not to mention

Atlanta also boasts one of the most imposing pitching staffs in the league, with near-NL Cy Young winner Spencer Strider at the helm. If the Braves are to lose their division crown in 2024, it will take a special season from someone else.

Philadelphia Phillies +300

The Phillies haven't won the NL East since 2011. They broke a 10-year playoff drought in 2022 when they earned the second NL Wild Card, and made it all the way to the World Series where they lost to the Houston Astros. In 2023, they came 2nd in the East and reached the NLCS, where they lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In each of the past two posteasons, however, the Phillies have knocked the Braves out after finishing behind their division rivals in the standings.

2024 calls for a much more stable, consistent Phillies regular season behind veteran sluggers Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, and Nick Castellanos and star pitcher Zack Wheeler fresh off signing a three-year, $126 million contract to stay in the City of Brotherly Love.

New York Mets +1000

Like the Phillies, the Mets have gone a long stretch without a division title. New York's last NL East crown came in 2015, a season that resulted in a World Series loss to the Kansas City Royals.

The Mets won 101 games in 2022 but lost the division to the Braves in the final stretch of the season, and have not rebounded since. Despite having one of the most expensive rosters in the MLB a season ago, namely pitchers Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, neither of whom are on the team anymore, New York finished 75-87 and fourth in the division.

In 2024, some lesser known names will have to step up if the Mets have any shot of challenging for the division.

Miami Marlins +2500

Excluding the 60-game 2020 season, the Marlins have reached the postseason just once since winning the World Series in 2003 - when they were still the Florida Marlins.

That season was last year, and it was thanks to a team effort led by batting title champion Luis Arraez (.354 BA). With a a few new names in the lineup and 2022 NL Cy Young Sandy Alcantara out (Tommy John surgery) for the year, it will be an uphill battle for Miami to challenge the top dogs in the NL West.

Washington Nationals +12500

The Nationals have the third-longest preseason odds to win their division of any MLB team in 2024. The only longer shots are the Colorado Rockies (+15000 to win NL West) and Oakland Athletics (+30000 to win AL West).

What those teams don't have, though, is a 2019 World Series flag flying above the stadium. Ever since the Nats won it all five years ago, the roster that did it has been dismantled, leaving the 2024 team unrecognizable to most.
