Regular Season Over And Unders For MLB Wins Per Club 2014: Gambling 101

It is time for all of the predictions to come forth for the MLB season.  Just a note here, make sure your totals equal 2430 games worth of wins and losses.  As you can see in this articles, I broke it down also for Division Records.  Remember when betting on futures, that the AL usually holds a decisive Interleague record over the National League.  In 2014, I believe the AL will register 32 more wins than the NL.  Many of the top FA sluggers headed to the Junior Circuit.

These are my predictions as of today for 2014.  Also the Odd Over/Under as listed by the Atlantic Casino In Reno and my ultimate pick for the year win totals.

The American League continues to reign supreme every year in Interleague.  Notice I have placed the AL Record at 1231 – 1199, versus the National League’s 1199 – 1231.

The AL has 2 of the 3 best divisions in baseball, and the AL East might feature the best out of the pack.  Even with these odds, we could see 8 out of the 10 teams in those division land records over .500

If I were to rank Divisions, I am going AL East, NL Central, Al West (don’t let the Houston Astros record take down the rest of the fleet), NL West, AL Central and NL East.

How can a team that has 370 Wins over the last 4 years, have added Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo in the winter (#1 and #4 hitters), be slated to lose 6 more games than in 2013?  The Rangers should be the best in a tough AL West.  However,  I think the Mariners will play at near the .500 level only, am not entirely sold on the Angels, although they will be better in 2014 compared to 2013, and the A's will recede ever so slightly in 2013.

Based on these Over and Unders set up by this outfit, the Dodgers, Tigers, Cardinals, Nationals, Rays will win their Divisions, while the A’s and Rangers would be a dead heat.

Also with this establishment’s list, they see the Red Sox as the Wild Card #1 seed, with either the A’s or Rangers bringing down the other slot as WC #2.

In the NL, they are saying the Reds are in as WC#1 and the Braves and Giants will have a game to decide the #2 slot.

I, of course have picked the Yankees and Royals as AL Wild Cards, while I had the Giants and Reds in the NL.

The Padres have not made the playoffs since 2006, and have only authored 2 winning seasons in the last 7 years.  It is not from a lack of the coach, rather the NL West has far superior talent, while the San Diego franchise has been trying to replenish the farm, went through an ownership change, and now the team needs to make some decisions this offseason, that will shape the fortunes of the club for the next several years.
