Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Cleveland Indians

Have you ever wanted to be like Pete Rose? Well know you can! With the power of the internet at your fingertips, you can place wagers with websites of ill repute for fun and profit!

Betting a single baseball game remains a foo’s errand, as the grand old game has its way of humbling those who think they can better the bounces, rolls, and umpires grinding axes. But the long con, the total season win totals, that is totally fair game.

Your friend and mine Jonah Keri slide the latest Vegas win total out via his twitter feed and the results are excellent food for thought. Via View from Vegas:

American League   National League
Angels 89½ ov -120 / un -110   D’Backs 81½ ov -120 / un -110
Yankees 86½ ov -115 / un -115   Reds 88½ ov -115 / un -115
Blue Jays 86½ ov -115 / un -115   Cardinals 85½ ov -115 / un -115
White Sox 80½ ov -115 / un -115   Phillies 81½ ov -115 / un -115

Twins 64½ ov -115 / un -115   Dodgers 90 ov -115 / un -115
Astros 59½ ov -120 / un -110   Nationals 90 ov -115 / un -115
Tigers 90 ov -115 / un -115   Braves 86 ov -115 / un -115
Rangers 87 ov -115 / un -115   Giants 86 ov -115 / un -115
Rays 86 ov -115 / un -115   Pirates 79 ov -115 / un -115
Athletics 83 ov -110 / un -120   Mets 74 ov -110 / un -120
Royals 79 ov -115 / un -115   Cubs 72 ov -115 / un -115

My very first reaction is Cubs over 72 all day and all night. The Angels are favored to win more games than anyone in the American League other than the Tigers? The Angels won 89 last year but I dunno. The Tigers are a whole ‘nother kettle of fish. The Astros? Oh boy, the Astros.
