Back in February, we presented the odds to win the 2015 Major League Baseball World Series. Today we move to the other end of the spectrum as we look at the Battle for the MLB Basement. There are a few “contenders” here so let’s get it. Remember, you need to act soon as Team Win Total futures odds are erased from the Bet365 betting board when the season opens with the Chicago Cubs vs St. Louis Cardinals clash on April 5, 2015. We can't wait for the Play Ball call.
Philadelphia Phillies: Once proud franchise is floundering
Following a run of five straight playoff appearances, that included a World Series title in 2008, Philadelphia has missed the postseason party three years in a row now. Back-to-back 73 win seasons appear to be the tip of the iceberg as Bet365 bookmakers have posted the Phillies with a meger 68.5 win total price. Over the past 13 years, a total of 61 teams have won 68 games or less. Texas (67) Colorado (66) and Arizona (64) were the only three teams last season.
Trio of teams will chase the Phillies during the regular season race to the MLB basement
Doom and gloom is in the forecast for the Rockies and Diamondbacks again this season and, on the heels of their 70 win 2014 campaign, that spreads to Minnesota as well. The Twins join Colorado and Arizona as a trio that’s tied for the second last win total (71.5) on the Bet365 MLB futures board. Out of thse three, Minnesota appears to be the Phillies toughest challenger as they have a brutal overall schedule. As outlined below, it’s brutal in and out of their division.
MLB Win Total Prediction: Playing in what is shaping up as a competitive AL Central, Minnesota has 76 games versus the Royals, Tigers, White Sox and Indians. Once they step out of their division, teams like the Mariners, Angels, Orioles, Red Sox and Blue Jays will be waiting. We are wagering 200 units that the Twins MLB 2015 Win Total will fall short of the 71.5 price posted at Bet365.
