After venting about the way Major League Baseball ruined Opening Day in today's A.M. Hot Clicks
, it's time to move on and focus on the season. That means recreationally betting some over/unders on total regular season wins. Bovada.lv has the totals
for each team. Here are the ones I've taken a flyer on: Rays over 87.5 (great starting pitching); Angels over 91.5 (adding Albert Pujols
and C.J. Wilson
gets them close to 100 wins); Braves over 86.5 (hopefully last season's collapse doesn't carryover); Red Sox under 90.5 (injuries, age, going from Terry Francona
to Bobby Valentine
add up for a down season in Beantown); Phillies under 93.5 (just a hunch here with the injuries to Ryan Howard
and Chase Utley
); Royals under 78.5 (they seem to be everyone's under-the-radar team to surprise, but their rotation is atrocious). I posted these picks on the Hot Clicks Facebook page
. Tell me which teams you like for over/unders and rip my picks over there.
