It’s not too late to bet on your favorite team’s win total if you’re not too happy with your pre-season bets.
BetMGM adjusted the win totals for all 30 MLB teams before the season resumes on Friday. And teams like the Orioles, Reds and Marlins are on track to eclipse their preseason totals.
Baltimore’s win total to start the season was 77.5. The Orioles enter the replay at 54-35 and two games behind the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL East. The Marlins are 8.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves in Newfoundland East, but are 53-39. Miami’s preseason win total was 72.5. The Cincinnati Reds are 50-41 and atop the NL Central. They entered the season with a win total of just 64.5.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are well below .500, but are also on course to easily eclipse their win total. Pittsburgh’s total at the start of the season was also a paltry 64.5. The Pirates are 41-49 years old.
On the other end of the spectrum, Missouri State is the worst performer in baseball. The St. Louis Cardinals’ win total was 89.5 before the season and the Cardinals are last in the NL Central at 38-52. The Kansas City Royals’ win total was 69.5 and the Royals are 26-65.
The Royals’ win total has been adjusted down the most of any baseball team. Kansas City’s All-Star Break total is now just 52.5. Are you confident the Royals can win 27 of their remaining 71 games?
The Cardinals’ total fell to 75.5 while the New York Mets’ total was adjusted down to 81.5 from 95.5 at the start of the year.
The Reds’ total jumped 20 games to 84.5 while the Marlins’ total rose to 87.6 and the Orioles to 90.5. The Orioles and Reds represent two of the highest wagered overs on BetMGM.
Friday’s MLB Slate
The Marlins visit the Orioles on Friday night in a matchup of two of baseball’s greatest overachievers. Miami is +105 to win while the Orioles are -125. Sandy Alcantara takes the mound for the Marlins against Dean Kremer.
It’s the best series of the weekend, even though the Dodgers are in New York to face the Mets and the Guardians are in Texas to face the Rangers.
The underperforming Royals are the biggest underdogs of the day at +240. Kansas City hosts the Rays for a three-game series as Tyler Glasgow pitches for Tampa and Alec Marsh is on the hill for the Royals. The Royals were a huge underdog in Game 1 of their series in Tampa a few weeks ago and took the win straight. Will this happen again?
Favorite Mexico in Panama
The United States sat out Sunday’s Gold Cup final after losing to Panama in a semi-final shootout. Mexico have -160 to beat Panama in regulation time while Panama have +450 to win without extra time or penalties and a tie after 90 minutes and injury time is +260.
The over/under of the match is 2.5 goals and the over is +125 and the under is -175.
