Sports Articles, Fantasy, and Predictions
Another season of baseball is upon us. Here are my thoughts on the win/loss projections.
Baltimore Orioles – OVER 82.5 – These guys surprised some last year. I know they lost a big bat in Cruz, but they have enough to win here. I think they could win the East. The pitching not sexy, but very solid. Try not to fall in love with names. Look at results. Steve Pearce could be a dark-horse MVP contender.
Cleveland Indians – OVER 83.5 – I like this bunch. I think they are winning the central. People can love on Detroit all they want. They can be an Under (84.5) team in my eyes. The rotation is the best in the central.
Oakland A’s – OVER 80.5 – 88, 96, 94 – Those are the win totals the last 3 years for Oakland. I know they lost some guys, but I am not betting against Billy Beane. And neither should you.
Seattle Mariners – OVER 86.5 – Another team I will ride with this rotation. They added Cano last year, and bring in some protection with HR basher Nelson Cruz. But it is all about King Felix and the princes behind him.
Philadelphia Phillies – UNDER 68.5 – What is there to say? I think this is the worse team in all of baseball. Hamels will be gone by the All-Star break.
Pittsburgh Pirates – OVER 83.5 – Like this bunch. I think the Cards as always will be tough. But we are getting good value here. 88-94-79. Last 3 years of Pitt baseball. I am looking at Gerritt Cole to make a huge jump. The OF can be very good.
Colorado Rockies – UNDER 71.5 – So I do like some of their bats. That being said, these guys are going to lose games 8-7 because the pitching staff is atrocious. Won’t be shocked to see some guys dealt by the end of June.
Others to look at
Under NY Yankees 81.5
Over Toronto Blue Jays 82.5
Under Detroit Tigers 84.5
Under Texas Rangers 75.5
Over Miami Marlins 81.5
Under Cincinnati Reds 77.5
Over Arizona Diamondbacks 71.5
Last season I went 235-240-11 for a profit of +1311. If you like daily underdog action, then I am the MLB capper you have been looking for.
