Will Jeter break Honus Wagner’s record of most career hits by a shortstop of 3,430? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the odds that Jeter will break Wagner’s record are -250, while the odds against him accomplishing the feat are +170. Jeter is currently sitting on 3,316 career hits.

What will Jeter’s batting average be for the 2014 regular season? The over/under has been set at .290 by Bovada.lv, and 120 for the number of total games that he’ll play in 2014. He’s a career .312 hitter but hit .190 over 17 games after he was limited by injuries. The last time he hit below .290 in a full season was 2010 when he hit .270 over 157 games.

Finally, will Jeter play in a game in the 2015 regular season? The odds are 20/1 that he will play another year, and 1/50 that he won’t. As the odds suggest, it’s almost a near lock that 2014 will be Jeter’s final season.

The Yankees are currently 10/1 to win the 2014 World Series, which puts them behind the Dodgers (13/2 favorites) and Tigers (17/2). The Red Sox, Cardinals and Nationals are the three teams that directly follow the Yankees in terms of odds. They’re all 12/1, respectively.
