Some things to keep in mind: The ball won't be as juiced, there aren't the expanded playoffs we had last year, and doubleheaders will be seven-inning games.

Without further ado, here are our best bets for the upcoming season featuring many teams around the league and searchable by division below.

-200 to win AL East

You're not going to get rich laying juice for season bets. After all, sports are unpredictable and baseball is as wacky as it can get. If the juice was -250, I would pass, but -200 is low enough for me to pull the trigger. The Red Sox are not really a threat, and let's not dignify the Orioles, so this is about outlasting the Rays and Blue Jays. Yes, Tampa won the division in 2020, but that was a 60-game season. A larger sample size produces a truer outcome.
