I usually don't like overs, but I have a hard time believing that the Chisox won't hit this number?

Good pitching staff & playing in the crappy Central should be enough for a winning season...

How much do you have to lay to get that line?

FWIW. Jonah Keri (http://jonahkeri.com/2010/03/11/2010-mlb-overunders/)

The numbers are from various projection systems:

Chicago White Sox under 82.5 (79, 78, 81, 84) …+110
My first Over/Under win ever was an Under on the White Sox, in 2007. Mainstream media and fans loved them coming off a 90-win season in ‘06, just two years removed from winning the World Series. Instead, the Pale Hose won just 72 games in ‘07; I was counting my stack of gummis by early August. The team has slowly incorporated a few younger players onto the roster to try to remedy some of the problems they had before with an old, slow roster. But this team still lacks the kind of across-the-board, dynamic talent you’d want to see in a contender. Gordon Beckham, Alexei Ramirez, John Danks and Gavin Floyd are nice building blocks. But this team still has too many Konerkos and Pierzynskis, and is still putting too much faith in Jake Peavy, a once-great pitcher coming off a major injury, transplanted to a tougher division in a tougher league in a much tougher ballpark that yields copious home runs.

Short ‘em.


As for me, I'm not a betting person (so take this with a grain of salt), but I'd like the overs on Colorado, Seattle, and Cincinnati, and the unders on Oakland and the Mets.

If you can get the pale hose @ -110 for the 82.5, then I like it...

If you have to lay -140 or -150, then I'd pass...

The Rangers line looks interesting as well...

84.5 with terrible starters, an offense that relys on the long ball and a manager behind the eight ball? I'll go under...

I'm sure Lead will pipe in on these matters

I like the Yankees over. I mean, I hate the Yankees, but they are going to win. With Boston and TB pushing them they won't be able to slack off. I'd be surprised if they don't win 100.
