Boston Red Sox
2019 win total over/under: 95.5
2018 win total: 108
The reigning World Series champs ran roughshod on the rest of the American League last year and once again at the World Series in their five-game victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Free agent nearer Craig Kimbrel is not expected back, but Boston largely brings back an identical team, commerce deadline additions included, to the one which essentially went wire-to-wire as the best team in baseball 2018. I don’t see a 13-win drop for the champs, so give me the over.
Prediction: RED SOX — OVER 95.5 (-125)

New York Yankees
2019 win total over/under: 95.5
2018 win complete: 100
The Yankees’ over/under win total is much more aligned to last year’s success, but this time I expect the Yankees to provide the Red Sox a considerably stiffer run for AL East supremacy.
They added James Paxton as a co-ace behind Luis Severino plus they re-upped deadline acquisition J.A. Happ following an 11-start streak of success from the Yankees’ rotation.
All of a sudden, the Yankees have a fearful starting rotation, a thunderous lineup, and a lights-out bullpen. I don’t have any difficulties with the over here.
Prediction: YANKEES — OVER 95.5 (-125)

Toronto Blue Jays
2019 win complete over/under: 76.5
2018 win total: 73
The Blue Jays endured an exceedingly disappointing season in 2018, but they ought to enjoy better fortunes in 2019, at least from a health standpoint.
The two Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez — Toronto’s top two pitchers — missed considerable time last year and were incredibly strict while on the mount consequently. With these two expected to enjoy healthier seasons, the Blue Jays will recover some wins dropped from last season.
Add in the inevitable promotion of high prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. along with bats sporting potent potential and the Blue Jays should be able to get much nearer to the .500 mark.
Prediction: BLUE JAYS — OVER 76.5 (+115)

Tampa Bay Rays
2019 win total over/under: 84.5
2018 win complete: 90
The Rays were one of the greatest surprises in baseball last year when they won 90 games while fighting the titanic Red Sox and Yankees in the AL East all season long.
I don’t expect the exact same amount of success this time around for a group that still only had three valid members to their turning. Their”opener” strategy was mostly successful, but Kevin Cash better expect his previously unknown relief corps can replicate their success in last year.
The Rays are constantly untrue; however, I think that they fall nearer to the .500 mark this time around.
