Can The Braves Beat Out Sports Betting Expectations Again?

  • The MLB and its players have agreed to a 60-game shortened regular season due to the coronavirus.
  • The Atlanta Braves over/under is set at 33.5 with both sides of the bet at -115 odds.
  • The New York Yankees over/under is set at 38.5 wins with the under favored at -125 odds.

ATLANTA – After the coronavirus shut down the MLB during spring training, baseball is finally back.

The MLB and the players’ association have come to terms on a shortened regular season that will begin around July 24. With the 60-game regular season format also comes a new playoff format.

The new playoff format will include 10 teams instead of seven.

Still, before getting into the playoffs, MLB teams must prove their worth and make the playoffs, often by beating out expectations at online sportsbooks.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves had a great 2019 season as they put up a 97-65 season. Going into the 2020 season, online sportsbooks have their over/under listed at 33.5 wins with both the over and under odds posted at -115 odds.

The Braves led the NL Central behind the trio of Freddie Freeman, Josh Donaldson, and Ronald Acuna.

Each of them finished the 2019 season with 37+ wins as well as over 140 hits.

As long as this trio can push this play into the 2020 shortened season, fans and bettors can expect great things from this team.

The Braves exceeded all expectations in 2019 as they were projected just 83 wins. They completely shattered that projection as they won a total of 97 games.

Houston Astros

The Houston Astros capped off a great 2019 season having finished the year with the best record in the league at 107-55.

Online sportsbooks have them listed at an over under of 35.5 with the under favored at -125 and the over at -105.

There was no excuse for this team to not have the best record in the league as they are led by Alex Bregman, George Springer, and Jose Altuve, all three of who combined for 111 home runs.

All three of them also have batting averages above .290.

Going into the 2019 season, the Astros were projected to win 98 games. Being that they beat that projection by nine games is a good sign for bettors. They have also increased their win total every year for the past four years.

New York Yankees

Continuing in the Mecca, the Yankees MLB odds for team wins is set at an over/under of 38.5 wins with the under favored at -125 and the over at -105.

The Yankees are more than deserving of the highest over/under projection being that they are coming off of a 103-59 season.

They are loaded with talent that will also push them towards that win total and maybe even break the odds and push them over. They have guys like Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and DJ LeMahieu.

Something positive is that the Yankees did go over their projected win total for the 2019 season by two games as they were projected to win 101 games.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers, like the Yankees, have an over/under of 38.5 team wins with the under favored at -130 and the over listed at +100.

The Dodgers finished off the 2019 season with a 106-35 record which was the second-best record in the league.

They have one of the best young stars in the league today in Cody Bellinger who was on an absolute tear last year. He led the team in batting averages with a .305 average, and in 170 hits, he managed 115 RBI’s and 47 home runs.

As long as Bellinger is leading the team as he has been, bettors should not shy away from the over bet here for a nice payout.

With so many MLB team win totals to bet on, the baseball betting action is beginning to step up to the plate at online betting sites.
