Bookmakers aren’t as high on the Twins, in preseason betting odds – Twinkie Town

Bookmakers aren’t as high on the Twins, in preseason betting odds – Twinkie Town

With spring training getting underway, a couple odds-makers have released gambling odds for the 2021 season. You’re not gonna believe this, but the Twins might be getting sold short once again.

Sportsbetting.ag

Sportsbetting.ag has the Twins’ over/under for win total set at 88.5, despite the team’s 101 wins in 2020 and 97-win pace in 2021. This isn’t all that surprising, as gambling odds are largely designed to take advantage of public perception, and all the hype surrounds the 3rd place White Sox (90.5) in the AL Central this year, rather than the back-to-back division champion Twins. Of course, you still have to play the games, but were I a gambling man, I’d have no doubts on whether I should pick the over or under.

The divisional odds have the White Sox as favorites in the Central, at -145, with the Twins at +190 and Cleveland at +750. This seems like a great value bet for the Twins to me, as most statistical projection systems have them as the favorites.

I’d also consider the Twins’ World Series title odds to be a great value at Sportsbetting.ag. They have tabbed the Twins as having the 7th-best odds at winning it all, coming in at +2200. The Dodgers, who also have the highest win total over/under, are the odds/on favorites at +300. The White Sox are set at +900, tied with the Padres and Mets for the 3rd-best odds, and Cleveland is at +4000, right
