MLB futures betting is heating up, and there are a number of great opportunities. Below are three of the best bets to make when looking at MLB win totals.
After a long and unpredictable MLB offseason, there will be baseball played in 2022. There were times during the Winter when it looked like the season might be canceled, but an agreement was finally made, and teams are now kicking off the season next week.
This is the perfect time to make a futures bet when it comes to MLB, and there are some great options available. Most focus on the World Series champion or player awards, but betting on regular-season win totals is an option as well.
Here are three MLB win totals bets that you simply have to make.Jump to
Milwaukee Brewers: O/U 89.5
The Milwaukee Brewers have been one of the most underrated teams over the last five years, but all this team does is win games. Milwaukee is a clear favorite to win the NL Central Division this season, but they could actually be better than that.
There are three pitchers in the starting rotation for Milwaukee that could win the Cy Young Award, and that bullpen is terrific as well. Questions still remain about the offense of the Brewers, but they don’t need to score much to win.
Beyond that, the Brewers are playing in a division in which three of the teams have zero interest in being competitive. Milwaukee will have little trouble with most teams from the Central Division, and this team is winning at least 90 games.
Los Angeles Dodgers: O/U 98.5
The Los Angeles Dodgers are not shy about spending money to improve their team, and that was the case this offseason as well. This Dodgers team might be the best version of them all, and they are clearly the favorites to win the World Series.
Los Angeles does have some tough competition in the NL West Division, especially from the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres. This lineup, though, is the best in baseball, and there won’t be any long losing streaks.
Some team in MLB is winning 100 games, and it will be the Dodgers this year.
Houston Astros: O/U 92.5
The Houston Astros have continued to win games even after the sign-stealing scandal has brought some shame to the franchise. Houston is the favorite to win the NL West Division again this season, but they aren’t going to run away with it.
The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels are both going to be improved this season, and they will keep the pressure on Houston all season long. The Astros are still the team to beat, but getting to 90 wins won’t be easy.
Don’t expect the Astros to run away with the AL West Division, and losing Carlos Correa will be a big deal. Take the under 92.5 wins, but the Astros can still get to 90.
