MLB Win Totals Predictions & Handicapping Insight
2016 MLB Team Win Totals
The totals are out and teams have opened anywhere from the 90’s to low 60’s. With just a month till baseball season and with spring training underway, teams will show off what they have and give fans a chance to really see where the value lies.
These totals will certainly move as the days get closer with roster battles becoming clearer.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – St. Louis Cardinals OVER 87.5
The Cardinals had easily reached the 100 win plateau last season and they did it without really ever gaining any attention in the NL Central. While the Cubs and Pirates were good enough to win most divisions, the Cardinals really ruined that with their dominant play, especially at home.
The Cardinals will return a majority of their core. Two of those players include Yadier Molina and Matt Holliday.
Also don’t forget they get the Reds and Brewers 36 times this season, which they could really take a bulk of those games.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – Kansas City Royals UNDER 85.5
The Royals have been doubted twice in the past two seasons, with one World Series appearance and now a World Series win.
It’s fair to think this team will regress a bit with all the pressure on them and targets on their back. With the division certainly improving all around and it being the closest in baseball, games will be a lot tougher to win for Kansas City this season.
Also don’t forget, 80-85 wins could be a wild card spot.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – Baltimore Orioles OVER 79.5
Baltimore is in a tough division with the AL East and having to deal with the Yankees, Red Sox, and Blue Jays, but this team made some solid moves and really has a solid offensive built lineup to produce.
Baltimore may not be a playoff team yet with their pitching, but it isn’t all that bad. They brought in Yovani Gallardo to bolster the rotation, which will be a giant plus.
This team is certainly a .500 team with the likes of Davis, Jones, and Machado leading the offensive charge.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – Cleveland Indians OVER 84.5
The Indians have been close. Real close.
Three straight winning seasons under Francona and this team has one of the best rotations in baseball.
The additions of Mike Napoli, Rajai Davis, and Juan Uribe offer the Tribe with a solid group of veterans to lead the team. This is one of the best clubhouses in baseball and this is the year they push through.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – Tampa Bay Rays UNDER 81.5
The Rays find themselves with a very young rotation, along with a very skeptical offense.
The unfortunate thing for them is the division. Baltimore, New York, Boston, and Toronto, all teams who could potentially win the division.
The schedule does them no favorites and this team is still a little bit away. They likely are destined for low to mid 70s in wins this season as they are still pieces away.
2016 MLB Win Total Predictions – Detroit Tigers OVER 81.5
While the Tigers have seen the Royals take the division over the past couple seasons, they improved this off-season.
Justin Upton was signed to a giant deal and this team is very solidified within their lineup JD Martinez has helped that cause in a big way as he was just signed to an extension, which was well deserving.
Detroit is certainly an over .500 team and the move to acquire Jordan Zimmerman was a huge addition that will certainly bolster the lineup.
