Team Outlook and Scouting Report

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK

Their 78 regular season wins did not meet expectations. It was -1.4 below what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went worse than expected. They met expectations at home, it was on the road that they struggled. They won 35.8% on the road which was much worse than expected (45.2%). They won 49 at home and were expected to win 42.9. In the latest simulations for next season they are averaging 81.3 wins per sim, which is a solid +3.3 improvement and are projected to finish eighth in the American League. There is not much of a gap between them and the #7 ranked Angels who are projected for 82.5 wins. They are a longshot contender with a 0.5% chance of winning the World Series based on simulations and a 1.5% chance of reaching the Series. They are not a good futures betting value with championship odds of 30/1, 3.2% and odds to win the AL at 15/1, 6.2%.
