2020 MLB Season Win Total Primer

It has been a long and grueling winter, but spring has sprung on the sports calendar with exhibition baseball and the Month of Madness fast approaching in college basketball.

It was a pretty standard offseason relative to what we saw last year, when free agents were unsigned as Spring Training got underway. That wasn’t the case this past winter. Accelerated timelines from oddsmakers, fewer unsigned players, and a better head start allowed us to put out our preseason baseball stuff a couple weeks earlier than last season. We’re staring down the barrel of a labor stoppage that will likely take away the 2021 season, so we’ll have to enjoy baseball in the meantime.

In order to do that, here is all of my preseason work. My annual labor of love with 30 MLB season win total previews and all of the different futures markets has arrived. These are current as of the posting date and posted content will not be edited for injuries or line moves. Once it goes up, it stays as is. That includes the PDF and Kindle versions of the MLB betting guide, which were released a little bit after everything was posted here at BangTheBook.com.

I’ve broken down all 30 teams using sabermetrics and other advanced concepts to find value for the 2020 baseball betting season. There are a lot of ways to make money across all sports betting markets, but I’ve found that utilizing sabermetrics is the best way for me to do it on the baseball side.

There is a glossary here on BangTheBook (to be updated shortly) for those of you that may not be as familiar with these terms. I will discuss them daily in my MLB Betting Picks piece and they will be applied and discussed on all of my editions of The Bettor’s Box, my MLB betting podcast.

Also, I recommend that you check out our MLB Betting How-To Guide that explains the different terminology for betting on baseball and some different strategies.

Thank you for reading and best of luck this season!
