It is once again time to take a look at how the bettors see the upcoming Major League Baseball season. The following come from courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV).
Reflected is what are called “MLB Proposition Bets,” or more commonly, Overs and Unders. If you believe the St. Louis Cardinals will win 89 or more games during the regular season, you take the over. If you think their total will be 88 games or less, you take the under.
As a point of reference, the 2014 Cardinals finished the regular season with 90 wins, two ahead of Pittsburgh for the National League Central Division title.
Listed below are the 30 MLB clubs. At the left, they are from high to low, and on the right, the teams are listed alphabetically.
|MLB Wins 2015||as of Feb. 16||High||MLB Wins 2015||Alphabetically|
|St. Louis||Cardinals||88½||Boston||Red Sox||86½|
|Toronto||Blue Jays||82½||Los Angeles||Dodgers||92½|
|New York||Yankees||81½||New York||Mets||81½|
As bets come in, these odds will be adjusted from time to time with the goal of keeping the over and under bets balanced. As these shift, I will report back from time to time on the changes.
