With 2020's 60-game MLB regular season set, FanDuel Sportsbook has already released projected win total odds for all 30 teams.

Coming off a strong 2019 season, Milwaukee Brewers fans have to feel pretty slighted to see their squad with a line set at just 30.5 wins.

A line of 30.5 wins in a 60-game season is equivalent to an 82.4-win line in a usual 162-game season. That would be a significant step back for a Brewers team that finished second in the NL Central with 89 wins (equivalent to 33.0 in a 60-game season) last year.

It's not like the Brewers' roster is any worse, either. They lost a couple solid offensive contributors, but they also brought in guys like Avisail Garcia, Justin Smoak, Jedd Gyorko and Brock Holt to make up for it. This is also still an offense that boasts one of the best hitters in the game in Christian Yelich and one of the most promising young stars in Keston Hiura.

Before the season was delayed, most expert predictions, including FanDuel Sportsbook, had the Brewers winning more than 82.4 games. Seeing the line at 30.5 now is surprising, considering little has changed in that time.
