MLB Over / Under

Grant Brisbee is holding a poll on the MLB over/under wins for 2018. You can only pick one bet in his poll.

The Dodgers are at 96.5 which is a very high bar so I wouldn’t put all my money on that bet. I would instead look a little south and bet on the Angels to win more than 84 games. In a very quiet winter, the Angels were the biggest winner by adding Otani. Along with Otani, they added Cosart to give them one of the best defensive left sides in baseball.  The biggest hole on the Angels in 2017 was second base and they acquired Ian Kinsler to plug that hole. They also get a full year of Justin Upton, and hopefully, some of their starters will actually stay healthy in 2018. They can’t all get hurt again, can they?

The worst non-catcher position player on the team might be Albert Pujols.

Other bets I would consider.

Staying in the AL West I’d probably bet on Oakland to better 74.5 wins.

Also staying in California even with the horrible rotation, the Padres should better 69.5 wins.

I’m not a big fan of the Diamondback offseason and 85 wins is already a big drop from the 93 they garnered in 2017, I’m still going to take the under.
