Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

They are one of 3 teams with 5000/1 odds to win the World Series. They do not win the World Series in any simulations. They are not a good value to win the AL either at 2500/1. They are projected to win 78 games and go over their pre-season futures line of 71. In simulations, they have been eliminated from playoff contention. They were a +2000 'underdog' to make the playoffs in the preseason. Their preseason chances to win the division were 0.3% at 80/1, 1.2%. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #8 in the AL.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Based on money line odds their expected record at this point of the season is 62.8-75.2. At 67-71 they are in line with these expectations. If you bet on them to win every game you would be up big (+293 units). They are one of the best teams against the spread (73-65) for a +241 profit. Their under-over record is 74-60 with 4 pushes. Based on computer simulations they only have a 41% chance to beat the Yankees in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average run differential is -0.33 which ranks #9 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #8. They are the #10 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #8 ranked team among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 14 games is -1.07 which ranks them #11 over this stretch, slightly worse than overall.
