The New York Yankees look like the clear favorites in the American League East heading into the 2021 season; their projected win total is at least nine games better than every other team in that division. But will they surpass their 95.5 wins projection? Let’s take a look at the best betting option for the Yankees’ win total line on DraftKings Sportsbook.
New York Yankees Over 95.5 Wins (-106)
The Yankees should have no problem clearing that number as long as they aren’t ravaged by injuries once again. If Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and the rest of their formidable lineup can stay on the field, the Yankees will bash their way to a lot of victories in a division where the pitching-thin Toronto Blue Jays will likely be their top competition this summer. The Tampa Bay Rays will probably take a step back following the subtractions of Blake Snell and Charlie Morton. The Baltimore Orioles remain one of the worst teams in all of baseball, and the Boston Red Sox are in the early stages of a rebuild. The Yankees won at least 100 games in each of the past two full regular seasons, so this number frankly feels low. However, taking the over here gives you better odds than the under, which is currently at -118.
