One of the most storied rivalries in professional baseball, the Subway Series, is set to begin its latest edition today, July 26.

The term was previously used for games between the Yankees and the Giants as well as the Brooklyn Dodgers when those two teams were in New York, but it now refers to interleague play between the Yankees and Mets.

Before we dive into the betting history of the series, let's take a look at the odds via WynnBET for tonight's showdown, set to take place at Citi Field in Queens.

  • Mets +100

Run line:

  • Yankees +1.5 (-220)

Subway Series Betting History

Here are some historic numbers to keep in mind when placing your bets on tonight's Subway Series game.

  • Yankees are 76-58 all-time vs. Mets in regular season
  • Yankees are 80-59 vs. Mets when including 2000 World Series
  • Yankees are 16-14 in last 30 matchups
  • The OVER is 18-11-1 in last 30 matchups
  • Yankees are 17-13 last 30 times they were favored in matchup
  • Mets are 14-16 in the last 30 matchups at Citi Field
  • Mets are 14-16 in last 30 home matchups as underdog
  • Mets won the latest matchup as a -115 home favorite on Sept. 12, 2021.

As you can see, the Subway Series has been pretty even in the last number of years. Sure, the Yankees have the all-time advantage by a significant margin, but it's been closely contested dating back the last decade or so.

The biggest recent trend to keep an eye on when these two teams meet, is the OVER. It's hit 18 times in the last 30 meetings, so with the total set at 8.0 tonight, you may want to lean towards the OVER.

Jordan Montgomery (3.24 ERA) will start for the Yankees tonight. He'll face-off against Taijuan Walker (2.55 ERA) of the Mets.

The two teams will play another two-game series, this one at Yankee Stadium, on August 23 and 25.
