Updated MLB Win Totals Coming Out of the All-Star Break
By Dan Israeli
The MLB season will now restart, following the All-Star break, as teams shift their focus to securing playoff spots in October.
Odds have been updated for regular season win totals, with a trio of teams all projected to win above 100 games, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, who are an MLB-best 60-32 at the break, have the highest over/under at 101.5, followed by the New York Yankees and Houston Astros both at 100.5.
The Dodgers, despite losing Yasiel Puig and Manny Machado from their lineup, are still 7th in the league in runs scored per game (5.22). They also have the best team ERA in the National League (3.37), headlined by Cy Young hopeful Hyun-Jin Ryu (1.73 ERA, 10-2 record).
The Yankees (57-31) and Astros (57-33) have the next best records in baseball, as well as comfortable 6.5- and 7.5-game leads in their divisions, respectively. Both teams are heavily rumored to target frontline starting pitchers at the trade deadline, which could surely push each squad over the 100-win mark.
Not to be forgotten at the top of the wins leaderboard are the Minnesota Twins (56-33), who currently own a 5.5-game lead over the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. The Twins have been the surprise team of the league, but must stay hot to keep the Indians at a distance. Minnesota is only 4-6 in its last ten games, while red-hot Cleveland is 7-3 over that span.
