Still in KC, so this one will be shorter. On our season preview podcast, Paul and I each gave five over/under predictions for 2017 (not to be confused with our PECOTA over/under game). I have listed those below. Feel free to play along at home. You can comment on this post or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Have a great Sunday!
30 Gary Sanchez HR (Paul: under, Peter: under)
23.5 Wins from the Reds first five starters (Finnegan, Garrett, Davis, Feldman, Arroyo) (over, under)
4.5 NL Batters with over .400 OBP (4 the last two years) (under, over)
2.5 Months of Jose Quintana on the White Sox (under, over)
More confidence: Benintendi ROY or Indians AL Central (Indians, Benintendi)
4 Cubs batters with 25 or more HR (over, over)
34.5 MLB hitters with 30 or more homers (11 in 2014, 20 in 2015, 32 in 2016) (over, over)
Better OPS: Jorge Soler or Byron Buxton (Buxton, Buxton)
81 Yankee wins (under, over)
8.10 Strikeouts per team per game (7.70 in 2014, 7.71 in 2015, 8.03 in 2016) (over, under)
At the end of the podcast, I also gave five podcast over/unders. Hold us to these, listeners.
May 15 Peter daily posts (over, over)
2 Hour longest podcast (under, under)
0.5 MLB players (over, over)
0.5 In studio Kevin appearances (over, over)
0.5 Pregnancies/girlfriends (over, over)
Lastly, I thought I'd share this while we're talking about gambling. It's a cruel world, so you probably shouldn't do it.
The Grizzlies were favored to win by 12.5, up 10, with the shot clock off.
