OVER/UNDER WIN TOTALS: TEAM BY TEAM

Arizona Diamondbacks

74.5 Wins (-106 Over) / (-118 Under)

Already lacking in starting pitching, the D’Backs lost lefty ace Robbie Ray to Toronto this offseason. They signed Joakim Soria to help shore up a struggling bullpen, and need to find some power bats to fill out a lackluster lineup.

Atlanta Braves

91.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Only the Dodgers scored more runs than the Braves last year during the shortened season and Atlanta nearly knocked off the champs in a heated NLCS. With Ronald Acuna Jr. and Ozzie Albies improving, and the pitching coaches crafting another excellent staff, the Braves are deservedly getting +500 odds to win the N.L.

Baltimore Orioles

64.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The Orioles lost the most games in baseball in 2019, but rebounded with a decent 25-35 record in 2020. They replaced SS Jose Iglesias with Freddy Galvis and flipped Alex Cobb for prospect Jahmai Jones. We should see more moves by the O’s to rebuild their farm system.

Boston Red Sox

80.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

General Manager Chain Bloom continues to trade away brand players for prospects in what figures to be a long rebuild. The Red Sox were quite arguably the worst team in baseball during the pandemic shortened season and the rest of the A.L. East continues to improve.

Chicago Cubs

79.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Kris Bryant’s name continues to come up in trade rumors and that could provide a distraction for the Cubs this season.

Chicago White Sox

91.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The White Sox are the team most pundits expect to break out this season and finally take the reigns in the tight A.L. Central. Lucas Giolito is a bonafide ace and the Southsiders have a loaded lineup led by Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez.

Cincinnati Reds

82.5 Wins (+100 Over) / (-124 Under)

One of the few teams getting even money to top their win total, the Reds are expected to take a step backwards without ace Trevor Bauer. Joey Votto is aging rapidly, but can still set the table for Eugenio Suarez. It’s pitching Cincy will have to manufacture after losing Anthony DeSclafani as well.

Cleveland Indians

81.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Instead of paying Francisco Lindor, the Indians flipped him and Carlos Carrasco to the Mets for a slew of potential prospects. They’ll hope that Cesar Hernandez can replace Lindor to an extent as another switch hitter with less power but a fantastic contact rate.

Colorado Rockies

64.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Trevor Story is next up as the face of the franchise following the puzzling departure of David Dahl and the trade of Nolan Arenado. The Rockies have a solid starting rotation and might be taking a new approach to try and win with defense at Coors Field.

Detroit Tigers

68.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The Tigers have finished last in the A.L. Central in 3 of the last 4 seasons and are looking to change that culture with former Astros manager A.J. Hinch taking over. They’ve added sluggers Jonathan Schoop, C.J. Cron, and Wilson Ramos, and hope that Jose Urena can bolster their rotation, but this is a very weak roster overall.

Houston Astros

86.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The scandalous Astros finished the 2020 season strong to sneak into the playoffs at 29-31 and made a brief run before exiting. George Springer is gone, but Houston will still be a potent offensive team with Carlos Correa and Michael Brantley coming back.

Kansas City Royals

72.5 Wins (-125 Over) / (+101 Under)

Bettors can get value by taking the Royals to go Under 72.5 wins, which is far from a longshot after they finished 26-34 last season and 59-103 in 2019. Their youthful starting pitching is a big question mark and Greg Holland might be on his last legs as a closer.

Los Angeles Dodgers

102.5 Wins (-118 Over) / (-106 Under)

No team can match the Dodgers in terms of depth at the plate or on the mound. Trevor Bauer completes a stacked rotation with David Price set to rejoin the team after opting out last summer. Having the Padres nipping at their heels should ensure that the Dodgers feel pressured to top 100 wins this season.

Los Angeles Angels

83.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The Angels starters posted the second-worst ERA last year and they addressed those issues by signing Dylan Bundy, Jose Quintana, and trading for Alex Cobb. They have a great outfield with Justin Upton and Dexter Fowler flanking Mike Trout, but are shaky on the mound.

Miami Marlins

70.5 Wins (-121 Over) / (-104 Under)

While they couldn’t follow COVID protocols initially, the young Marlins bounced back to earn a playoff berth with a 31-29 record last year. Kim Ng takes over as the first female GM in baseball history and so far she’s been quite successful in bolstering Miami’s bullpen.

Milwaukee Brewers

82.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

After making the expanded playoffs with a 29-31 record, the Brewers look to return to the top of the N.L. Central. Their top pitchers, Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff, could both be primed for breakout seasons and Christian Yelich is set to return to his MVP form.

Minnesota Twins

88.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

J.A. Happ fizzled out with the Yankees and is now expected to lead a mediocre Twins staff at age 38. The health of their lineup could also be in question after Jorge Polanco underwent surgery this offseason.

New York Mets

90.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

If Noah Syndergaard can come back strong, the Mets will have a fantastic rotation ready to set up a strong bullpen. That’s a recipe for wins even if they still have some holes in their lineup, which new owner Steve Cohen is sure to address.

New York Yankees

95.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

This team is loaded with potent bats and an elite pitching staff headlined by Gerrit Cole. The biggest question with the Yankees is always the shaky health of Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge, but they proved last year that they can compete even if one or both of those sluggers has to sit.

Oakland Athletics

87.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Billy Beane’s club always seems to thrive during the regular season and the A’s were sharp once again with a 36-24 record in 2020. Bullpen depth is always a top priority for a team that loves to mix and match arms.

Philadelphia Phillies

80.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Dave Dombrowski is the right man to join an arms race in the N.L. East and he acted quickly by re-upping J.T. Realmuto and Didi Gregorious. Pitching is going to be a greater concern for the Phillies with few reliable arms behind Aaron Nola.

Pittsburgh Pirates

58.5 Wins (+100 Over) / (-125 Under)

The Buccos are expected to be the worst team in MLB this year and they’re getting even money on topping 58 wins. Jameson Taillon, Josh Bell, and Starling Marte have both been shipped out of town to make way for a new wave of prospects, and Pittsburgh has very little reliable pitching.

San Diego Padres

94.5 Wins (-106 Over) / (-118 Under)

The Padres aggressive front office signed Fernando Tatis Jr. to a mega deal before they had to and continued to trade the farm for elite pitchers. They now have Blake Snell, Yu Darvish, Mike Clevinger, Dinelson Lamet, and Chris Paddack to form a rotation that might even rival what the Dodgers can roll out there.

San Francisco Giants

75.5 Wins (-106 Over) / (-118 Under)

Adding LHP Alex Wood and Anthony DeSclafani is great for a Giants team that tries to win with pitching and defense, but they need some sort of help on offense. Tommy La Stella is expected to provide that lift after signing a 3-year deal worth $18.75 million.

Seattle Mariners

72.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

Old friend James Paxton is back to lead what could be a six-man rotation in Seattle and the Mariners bullpen should be dramatically improved with Ken Giles and Rafael Montero signed.

St. Louis Cardinals

86.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The perennial contenders made a splash this offseason by trading for Nolan Arenado, who could form a fearsome duo with Paul Goldschmidt in the heart of the Cardinals lineup. They managed to bring back Yadier Molina, so their pitching staff should automatically perform better with help from the smartest backstop in baseball.

Tampa Bay Rays

85.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

This franchise never rebuilds, they just continue to reload with the best scouting department in baseball. Tampa brought back Chris Archer to address their pitching depth with Yonny Chirinos slated for Tommy John surgery, and will soon unveil top prospect Wander Franco as an elite five-tool player.

Texas Rangers

66.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The Rangers posted an ugly 22-38 record last summer, but could be slated to bounce back with Nate Lowe and David Dahl adding some pop to their lineup. Texas will hope that Japanese ace Kohei Arihara can translate his success to the U.S. and give their maligned staff a lift.

Toronto Blue Jays

86.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

This is a rather big number for an unproven young team, although the Blue Jays did look sharp with a 32-28 record in 2020. With a trio of lefties in Steven Matz, Robbie Ray, and Hyun-Jin Ryu, the Blue Jays might be playing the angles in the hitter-friendly ballparks of the A.L. East.

Washington Nationals

84.5 Wins (-112 Over) / (-112 Under)

The 2019 World Series champs never got off the mat in 2020 and finished with a 26-34 record. If they can keep their fragile starters healthy, a rotation of Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg, Patrick Corbin, and Jon Lester will be quite potent, while Josh Bell and Juan Soto should provide some offensive fireworks.
