Bet baseball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
In a little over two weeks, baseball is back. Before the first pitch is thrown on Opening Day, let’s see how William Hill bettors are wagering on 2021 MLB regular season win totals. After taking a look at all three American League divisions, we make our way over to the National League East.
Eleven teams have attracted at least 80% of the total number of tickets on one side of their win totals. Eleven teams are also drawing at least 80% of the total of the total dollars wagered on one side of their win total. The NL East is the only division to have zero of those teams in either category, meaning this is where there’s the most “division” among William Hill bettors.
First, let’s check out the five teams’ current odds. The NL East joins the NL West as the only two MLB divisions to have multiple teams with a win total above 90. The Braves lead the way at 91.5, experiencing a slight drop from their opener of 92.
The Mets are nearby at 90.5, though, and New York has had a 1.5-win bump from its original number of 89. The Phillies are the only other NL East club to have their win total rise, shifting from 81.5 to 82.5. The one team that has stayed put the entire time is the Nationals, who haven’t budged from 84.5.
At the bottom of the NL East is the Marlins, who have also seen the biggest decrease in the division. After first being displayed at 73.5, Miami has fallen down to 72. The Marlins also possess the lowest win total of any 2020 playoff team, with the next-lowest number belonging to the Cubs at 78.5.
Not surprisingly, the Marlins’ win total has also been the most popular under bet in the division. Miami’s under has generated 73% of the total dollars wagered, highlighted by a Nevada bettor placing $5,000 on Marlins under 72.5 (-110) for a total potential payout of $9,545.45. While Miami’s over has the advantage with 61% of the total number of tickets, that currently stands as the lowest mark in the NL East.
Meanwhile, the Phillies’ over is the division leader in total number of tickets at 78%, whereas the Mets’ over is tops in total dollars at 79%. Those teams’ overs also rank second in the other category, with New York capturing 76% of the total number of tickets and Philadelphia seizing 62% of the total dollars wagered.
The Braves and Nationals are two MLB win totals where William Hill bettors are the most divided in terms of total dollars wagered.
The Braves’ over has the edge with 52% of the total dollars wagered, as only the Yankees’ win total (51% total dollars wagered on the under) has a tighter split in all of baseball. The Nationals’ under isn’t too far behind, as it has snagged 55% of the total dollars wagered. Regarding the total number of tickets, William Hill bettors are far more optimistic about Washington (74%) and Atlanta (72%) surpassing their win total.
