Atlanta Braves Projected 2020 Win Total is Disrespectful

The Atlanta Braves look poised to be one of the best teams in baseball. This assertion is backed up by their spot in FanDuel Sportsbook's odds to win the 2020 World Series, as the Braves have the fourth-best odds in the league.

However, their win total has been set at just 33.5, which feels a bit disrespectful for a team with this much talent.

For one, there are eight teams whose win total has been set at the same figure or higher. That's a big shift from being the team with the fourth-best World Series odds.

Of course, given the 60-game season, it shouldn't be too much of a shock that these teams win totals aren't as far apart as they normally would be. But it's still surprising to see the Braves have the same projected total as teams like the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics.

With elite-level talent like Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman and Mike Soroka the Braves certainly have what it takes to outperform these projections.
