MLB Leans

Ryan brings you key insights to help you establish solid strategies in support of your MLB betting objectives.

  • Orioles Under 77.5 – The Oriole’s window is closing and Machado is likely to be moved before the deadline. This is the year that the team that has continually exceed expectations finishes in the basement of the treacherous AL East.
  • Royals Under 76.5 – The Royals have been an incredible story and fun to watch over the last five years, but this club is now fully in rebuild mode with the departure of key cogs throughout the lineup. The Royals will be drafting in the top 5 of next year’s draft.
  • Reds Over 71.5 – The Reds have an intriguing stable of young arms ready to make an impact in 2018. I like the back end of their bullpen and their lineup, while lacking superstars outside of Votto, was sneaky productive in 2017. The Reds turn the corner this year and yield the cellar to the rebuilding Pirates.
  • Marlins Under 64.5 – See Astros circa 2012/2013. This is a 100 loss team that’s unabashedly shedding top talent and salaries for the (dis)honor of the first pick in the 2019 draft.
  • Rangers Under 78.5 – An average to below average rotation and a bottom 5 bullpen make the Rangers a likely candidate to take a step back in 2018. In a division with the ascendent Angles and powerhouse Astros, expect the Rangers to be sellers by the deadline.
