Philadelphia continued its recent dominance of the NL East in 2010 by winning the division by six games with a MLB-best record of 97-65. The Phillies bid to make it back to the World Series for the third straight year ended with a loss to San Francisco in the NLCS in six games. Atlanta kept things interesting for the majority of the year and locked-up the National League Wildcard with a record of 91-71. The Braves fell to the Giants in four games in the NLDS.

Florida came in third-place at 80-82 and New York won nine more games than in 2009 to finish at 79-83. Washington found itself in familiar territory at the bottom of the division with a record of 69-93, but ended up winning 10 more games than it did the year before.

Here is a brief preview of all the teams in the NL East along with their future odds as provided by SportsBook.com.

MLB 2011 Previews and Predictions – NL East

NL East Odds: Philadelphia Phillies -300
Win Total Over/Under 97

Philadelphia did lose Jayson Werth to free agency after he signed with Washington, but the addition of pitcher Cliff Lee to an already extremely talented starting rotation elevated this team to not only being a prohibitive favorite to win the NL East for the fifth straight season, but to win the NL Pennant as well. Lee joins Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels to form the Phab Phour in South Philly, rivaling the earlier formation of the Big Three in South Beach.

NL East Odds: Atlanta Braves +450
Win Total Over/Under 88.5

For the first time since 1985 Atlanta will have a new skipper after Bobby Cox decided to hang up the spikes following the 2010 season. Freddi Gonzalez will take over the reins with some huge shoes to fill. With pretty much the same roster as last season, the key to the Braves remaining competitive this year will be duplicating their MLB-best 56-25 record at home. Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

NL East Odds: Florida Marlins +800
Win Total Over/Under 81.5

Offensively, Florida will need to find a way to replace the production of Dan Uggla, who was traded to Atlanta this offseason, but it should remain solid on defense with a very talented starting rotation led by Josh Johnson and Ricky Nolasco. The acquisition of Javier Vazquez will only make this rotation better, but the real key to the Marlins contending for the Wildcard this season will hinge of the performance of their rebuilt bullpen.

NL East Odds: New York Mets +1500
Win Total Over/Under 78.5

The expectation level for New York this season is finally where it should be after it woefully underperformed the past few seasons. The Mets have a new manager, and rebuilt front-office, and possibly new ownership, but the results this year should be the same old story. This team is still loaded with overpriced talent that never earned their keep and will need to jettison some of those contracts just to stay afloat. The good news is the Mets are close to hitting rock bottom with no real place to go but up.

NL East Odds: Washington Nationals +1500
Win Total Over/Under 72

There is little doubt that Washington grossly overpaid Werth for his services, but it still remains a solid acquisition for a team that seems to be snake-bit lately in terms of player personal. Pitching phenom Stephen Strasburgh is on the mend from Tommy John surgery but will most likely miss the entire season. Bryce Harper, another No.1 pick, still needs some time in the minors, so mark your calendars for April 2012 for the start of the Nationals’ run toward respectability.
