Welcome back to Win Total Wednesdays, where we’ll now venture off to the diamond to look at the latest odds and trends for the American League.
American League teams have received 49% of the total number of tickets and 60% of the total dollars wagered among all 2020 MLB regular season win total bets at William Hill.
The Yankees opened with the highest win total in the AL at 37, and it has since gone up to 37.5, only trailing the Dodgers’ 38 in all of MLB. New York’s half-win move is tied for the biggest increase by any AL team from its opening number along with the Blue Jays from 28 to 28.5 and the Royals from 24.5 to 25.
Meanwhile, six AL teams have had their win totals decrease since they were first released. No MLB team has had a bigger plunge than the Red Sox, as Boston has dropped two wins from 31.5 to 29.5. Boston has generated 9% of the total dollars wagered for all 2020 win total bets at William Hill, which is the highest of any AL squad.
A pair of West Coast teams, the Angels (31.5 to 30.5) and Mariners (24.5 to 23) are the only others in the AL to have at least a one-win drop.
It’s a different AL West team, however, whose over leads everyone in the AL for total number of tickets. Athletics over 33.5 has received 92% of the total number of tickets, with the White Sox (32) next at 78%. Additionally, Chicago has drawn 6% of the total number of tickets for all 2020 MLB win total bets at William Hill, which is tops in the AL.
For total dollars wagered on an over, no AL team exceeds the Twins (35) at 91%. Last season’s AL pennant winner, the Astros, are right behind them with their over (34.5) attracting 89% of the total dollars wagered.
On the other side, the Orioles not only have the lowest 2020 MLB win total at 21, but Baltimore is also the only AL team whose under ranks in the top three in both total number of tickets (67%) and total dollars wagered (78%). While the Orioles’ under has the highest percentage of total dollars wagered, the Red Sox’ under is first in total number of tickets at 68%.
The Angels’ under is fourth with 69% of the total dollars wagered, however Los Angeles has received two $2,200 bets on its under, which is tied for the largest AL win total wager thus far at William Hill. One Nevada bettor placed $2,200 on Angels under 32.5, while another Nevada bettor put down $2,200 on Angels under 31.5. Both bets have potential total payouts of $4,200.
