Jeff Allen Baseball Win Totals and First Impressions

Pitchers and catchers have reported, spring training has started in earnest and the Westgate Las Vegas
(formerly Las Vegas Hilton Superbook) has released it’s 2015 MLB season win totals. Baseball is right
around the corner.

Below are the opening lines as they were released by the Westgate on February 15th followed by the early first impressions by World Champion handicapper Jeff Allen.  These are not official recommendations but observations. Jeff will release early impressions on some player props in his next report and will come with some official releases closer to opening day when all his prep work has been completed.

Once again, the numbers below are the opening numbers. Even with small limits, there has reportedly been brisk betting on the openers and the numbers and most assuredly the moneylines will be slightly or markedly different than what you see here.
The number at left is the Westgate betting number. The Over and Unders of all win totals all started at -110

Allen’s Impressions:

5839 Oakland A’s     80.5 wins (Under): Moneyball gets a tremendous amount of respect and deservedly so but Billy Beane and Co.have a monumental job ahead of them after turning over 40% of their 40-man roster and dumping six All-Stars. The Angels and Seattle are two of the best five teams in baseball, Texas can’t help but be better after their injury plagued 2014, and even the lowly Astros don’t figure to be a doormat  after taking their lumps with the kids the past couple of years. Anything close to .500 for the A’s would be a successful season.

5845 San Diego Padres  85.5 wins (Under): Give credit to the Padres for spending some money in trying to improve but this win total is much too ambitious. The Padres will have very good to excellent pitching as usual but the infield as it is currently comprised is a defensive train wreck with punch and judy offense. The big acquisitions, all in the outfield, have lots of potential but Matt Kemp’s health is always a question marks and it remains to be seen how his and B.J. Upton’s power will translate in pitcher friendly Petco Park.

5853 Tampa Bay Rays     79.5 wins (Under): The Rays have done remarkably well the last five years thanks to smoke and mirrors of the managerial prowess of mad hatter Joel Maddon. Their 446 wins over the last five years are even more remarkable in that the team’s payroll has never exceeded $63 million dollars and that they play in the same division with the big payroll Yankess, BoSox, Orioles and Jays. Tampa will have some pitching with Matt Moore, Chris Archer, Alex Cobb and Drew Smyly who came over from the Tigers in the David price deal. On offense, it’s Evan Langoria, James Loney and six guys out of the witness protection program. This team looks a lot more like a 70 win team than the 80 win team being asked for here.
