Our Reports are updated daily in season and minimally weekly off-season and are geared towards fans who are analytical and invested ($) in their team's performance. For our latest power rankings, betting futures and the detailed Fantasy Player Scouting reports powered by our proprietary projection model check out the new Scout.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK

The regular season went better than expected. They won 103 games vs an expected win total of 101.6. They exceeded expectations on the road. They won 70.4% on the road which was much better than expected (58.9%). They won 46 at home and were expected to win 53.8. In simulations for next season they are averaging 100.6 wins and are projected to finish second in the American League. There is not much of a gap between them and the #3 ranked Red Sox who are projected for 99.4 wins. They are a contender with a 18.2% chance of winning the World Series based on simulations and a 29.9% chance of reaching the Series. Even with the juice, they are a good futures betting value with championship odds of 6/1, 14.3% and odds to win the AL at 11/4, 26.7%. The Astros are not as good as the Yankees if they all had the same schedule and same division. But given their overwhelming favorite status to win their division (81% in simulations. 1/8, 89% odds) they have a much better chance of avoiding the Wild Card game and subsequently have the best chance of winning it all out of the American League.

TEAM STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be slightly better. Since last season their average run differential is +1.59 which ranks #1 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #2. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #1 ranked team in run differential in road games, vs #5 in home games.
