Boston Red Sox
2015 W-L:
78-84
2015 O/U: 83-73
2015 Profits:  -6.5 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  87.5
2016 AL East Odds (Westgate):  2/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  David Price, Clay Buchholz, Rick Porcello, Eduardo Rodriguez, Joe Kelly
Key Departures: Alexi Ogando,
Key Additions: David Price, Craig Kimbrel, Carson Smith, Roenis Elias

Handicapper's Take: "Last to first is what the Red Sox will attempt to do in arguably the strongest division in baseball. David Price and Craig Kimbrel were two of the biggest signees of the offseason and immediately provide the team with an ace-level starter and closer. Newly appointed team president Dave Dombrowski also brought in stud reliever Carson Smith (DL to start the year) and lefty starter Roenis Elias who is a perfect fill-in arm for when one of the starting five struggles or get injured. The only key loss was Wade Miley (Seattle) who despite marginal stuff pitched a Read more

MLB Handicapping: Strength of schedule and Interleague pairings

03.28.2016     06:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on MLB strength of schedule and the potential impact it could have on regular season win totals. The National League is projected to have the six worst teams (San Diego, Colorado, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Atlanta, and Philadelphia) which could mean a few extra wins for those AL squads that draw favorable Interleague slates.


And those 20 interleague games can have an outsized effect. Just last year, the 86-win Astros squeaked in to the second Wild Card, finishing one game ahead of the 85-win Angels. One of the biggest things that separated them was interleague play: the Astros finished a lucky 16-4, while the Angels were only 8-12. They both faced the West last year, but the 87-win Wild Card Yankees faced the East, and they went 11-9, with special thanks to a three-game sweep of the Braves — and that preserved their two-win margin over the Angels.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Colorado Rockies

Colorado Rockies
2015 W-L:
  68-94
2015 O/U:  84-74
2015 Profits:  -12.9 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  71.5
2016 NL West Odds (Westgate):  50/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Jorge De La Rosa, Chad Bettis, Chris Rusin, Jon Gray, Jordan Lyles
Key Departures:  Cory Dickerson, John Axford
Key Additions:  Gerardo Parra, Mark Reynolds

Handicapper’s Take: “The Colorado Rockies finished last year in the cellar of the NL West with 94 losses -- the fifth season in a row they failed to top 74 wins. As any totals bettor or fantasy player can tell you the issue is not offensive production but instead pitching. The bullpen was awful as no unit had a worse ERA and only Arizona’s relief corps threw more innings. Only the Braves and Yankees walked a higher percentage of opposing hitters and only the Tigers and Twins struck out a lower percentage of hitters. The starting rotation, outside of Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians
2015 W-L:
  81-80
2015 O/U:  79-80-2
2015 Profits:  -13.2 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  85.5
2016 AL Central Odds (Westgate):  9/5
Projected Starting Rotation: Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, Danny Salazar, Josh Tomlin
Key Departures:  Ryan Webb, Chris Johnson, Mike Aviles
Key Additions:  Mike Napoli, Rajai Davis

Handicapper's Take: "Armed with the best starting rotation in the AL Central, the Cleveland Indians are projected to be Kansas City's closest competition this season. In fact, a number of sportsbooks currently have the Tribe with a higher season over/under win total and shorter odds to win the division.

Shortstop Francisco Lindor, who is projected to be the cornerstone of the organization, produced All-Star level numbers (.313, 12 HRs, 51 RBI) in only 99 games last season. And Mike Napoli was brought in to add pop to a lineup that had Read more

New York Yankees
2015 W-L:
87-75
2015 O/U:  77-81-4
2015 Profits:  -3.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  86.5
2016 AL East Odds (Westgate):  11/4
Projected Starting Rotation: Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi, Luis Severino
Key Departures:  Chris Young, Adam Warren
Key Additions:  Aroldis Chapman, Starlin Castro

Handicapper's Take: "On the surface, the Yankees look like an aging team that is a few injuries away from finishing .500. But if you look beyond the elder statesmen trio of Rodriguez, Beltran, and Teixeira there's a lot of young talent. Didi Gregorius eventually became a big upgrade over Derek Jeter. I also like the upside of 22-year-old Luis Severino who has the potential to be the best starting pitcher on the staff though his workload will likely be capped at around 150 innings. And unlike past seasons, there's talent waiting in the wings with a handful of players in the Read more

Tampa Bay Rays
2015 W-L:
80-82
2015 O/U:  73-76-13
2015 Profits:  -5.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  81.5
2016 AL East Odds (Westgate):  6/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Chris Archer, Jake Odorizzi, Drew Smyly, Erasmo Ramirez,  Matt Moore
Key Departures:  John Jaso, Daniel Nava, Nate Karns, Asdrubal Cabrera
Key Additions:  Cory Dickerson, Hank Conger, Logan Morrison, Steve Pearce

Handicapper's Take: "After four straight 90+ win seasons, the Rays have finished fourth in the AL East with 77 and 80 wins, respectively, the last two years. This organization has always been up against it in terms of budget compared to the rest of the division. Pitching and defense have been key ingredients for success and if the Rays are going to be competitive beyond the All-Star Break, they'll need to produce in both areas because the everyday lineup is lightyears behind the rest of the division.

Philadelphia Phillies
2015 W-L:
  63-99
2015 O/U: 86-64-12
2015 Profits:  -8.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  64.5
2016 NL East Odds (Westgate):  80/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Aaron Nola, Jeremy Hellickson, Charlie Morton,  Jerad Eickhoff ,  Vincent Velasquez
Key Departures:  Dominic Brown, Jeff, Francoeur
Key Additions:  Charlie Morton, Jeremy Hellickson

Handicapper's Take: "It’s hard to imagine that local expectations for the Phillies could be even lower than they were heading into last season but they are. There is no surefire way to project how this mass collection of young players will respond to all the negative projections from the fan base all the way to national insiders. When teams are perceived to be this bad professional handicapper and bettors will try to see if there’s ways to capitalize on the garbage no one else wants.

Baltimore Orioles
2015 W-L:
81-81
2015 O/U: 73-80-9
2015 Profits:  -3.5 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  78.5
2016 AL East Odds (Westgate):  8/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Chris Tillman, Ubaldo Jimenez, Miguel Gonzalez, Kevin Gausman, Yovani Gallardo
Key Departures:  Gerardo Parra, Wei-Yin Chen,  Junior Lake,
Key Additions:  Mark Trumbo, Odrisamer Despaigne, Pedro Alvarez

Handicapper's Take: "With the addition of Mark Trumbo and Pedro Alvarez, there's a lot of talk that the Baltimore Orioles are going to be a powerhouse offense this season. It's a reasonable theory considering last year's squad hit the third-most home runs in baseball (217) and had the fourth highest SLG percentage (.421). The Orioles will no doubt homer their way to plenty of wins but it's only one facet of a team loaded with shortcomings.

For starters, this team is going to strikeout a ton. Even prior to the team Read more

2015 W-L:

2015 O/U: 86-66-10 
2015 Profits: -29.4 Units 
2016 O/U Wins: 75.5 
2016 AL West Odds: +1600 
Projected Starting Rotation: Sony Gray, Jesse Hahn, Rich Hill, Chris Bassitt, Kendall Graveman/Sean Nolin
Key Departures: Brett Lawrie, Jesse Chavez
Key Additions: Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis, Yonder Alonzo, Ryan Madsen, John Axford, Marc Rzepczynski, Rich Hill

Handicapper's Take: "There’s a huge difference between the two leagues this year.  In the NL, six teams are essentially out of the playoff race before the season even starts.  Atlanta, Philly, Milwaukee, Cinci, San Diego and Colorado will consider the 2016 season a successful one if they finish at .500.  You could probably say the same thing about the Miami Marlins, although that team has a bit more upside than the other six.  In the NL, there’s a clear dichotomy Read more
