MLB gambling odds: Dodgers over/under win total is highest in MLB – True Blue LA

There is a plan in place for a 60-game MLB season, so it was only a matter of time before avenues to bet on baseball emerged. Thanks to BetOnline, we can see that the Dodgers are heavy favorites to win the National League West and their over/under win total is tied for the highest in baseball with the New York Yankees.

The oddsmakers at BetOnline have the Dodgers at 38½ wins in 2020, which would translate to just shy of 104 wins in a full, 162-game season. While it seems abnormally high, the Dodgers won at least 39 games in 61 of 103 (59.2 percent) 60-game stretches last year.

The Yankees also have an over/under of 38½ wins, with the Astros next at 35½ and the Twins at 34½ wins. The Braves and Nationals are two of four teams with an over/under of 33½ wins, the second-highest total in the National League.

The disparity is even larger in the National League West, a division the Dodgers have won seven years in a row. The Diamondbacks and Padres have over/unders of 31½, which translates into 85 wins in 162 games, followed by the Rockies at 27½ and Giants at 25½ wins.
