    Change in Win Totals (05/21/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    First quarter win total review – which teams have surprised and disappointed?



    And just like that a quarter of the 2015 MLB season is in the books. Which teams have surprised and disappointed thus far from a win total perspective?

    The Astros averaged 104 losses over the last four seasons, now they reign over the American League. Houston's 27-14 record is good for a 5.5 game lead in the AL West. The ‘Stros were projected to win 74.1 games before the season started. After a hot start, Houston's projected win total is 85.2 games. The Astros have a 41% chance to win their division.

    Unlike Houston, what the Los Angeles Dodgers have accomplished early in the season shouldn't shock anyone. The defending NL West champions were our second most likely World Series winner before the season started. While we estimated that the Dodgers would win more than 90 games in the preseason, LA's projected win total has jumped by six games. The Dodgers have the highest projected win total in baseball at 97.4 games.

    Back east the Red Sox's season hasn't gone quite as planned. Boston was the bookmakers' favorite to win the AL East before the first pitch of the season. The Red Sox have struggled to score runs, ranking in the bottom half of the majors in runs produced. Though the team is only two games under .500, their expected win total has dropped nearly eight games. Boston is now projected to have a losing season.

    There were 15 teams that were projected to have a .500 or better record in March. Now five teams (Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh Pirates, Seattle Mariners) have stumbled so badly out of the gate that they are projected to have losing records.

    We will keep tracking each team's progress daily throughout the season. Teams that start hot can cool off and a bad beginning can be quickly forgotten with a winning streak. The season is still young and there is a lot of baseball to be played. Check out our Rest of Season projections daily for updated win totals and projected standings.

    Note: Our "normal" or better 2015 Win Total Picks are projected to finish 6-3.

    08/09/2017 Highlight: Football season is slowly approaching and as we use our ResultsFinder tool to look back on previous seasons, we can see that ATS picks in the NFL regular season have topped 56% ATS four times in seven years, and have been profitable in all but one season on the site. NFL Playoff picks are also a stellar 50-25 (67% ATS) in our history.

    In college football, "normal" or better totals are 58% all-time and have been profitable in five of the previous seven years. Meanwhile, our strongest ATS pick each week in college football is 69-40 (63% ATS) all-time. With college football season win totals being posted this week, we can also note that last season, playable win total picks in went 28-19 (60% O/U) to turn a profit of $899 for a normal $50 player using our play value recommendations.

    MLB picks have been on a tear for upwards of a month, with our models generating $742 in total profits on ML and RL picks since the beginning of July. "Normal" or better ML and RL plays in that same stretch are a commendable 20-11 (64.5%), producing $331 in profits for an average $50 bettor.
