2023 MLB Betting Preview: Royals, Athletics, Marlins, Brewers Value Picks to Go Under Regular Season Win Totals

We looked 10 days ago at four baseball teams for whom optimism feels particularly springy as Opening Day approaches. Now, for the other side of the coin — four teams whose over/under forecasts portend pessimism. All odds from DraftKings as of March 13.

Kansas City Royals under 69.5 wins

The pennant-winning 2014 season and World Series-winning 2015 encore seem like fever dreams at this point for the Royals, who have fallen short of 70 wins in three of the last four full seasons (and were at a 70-win pace during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign) and look like a worse team than last year’s 65-97 edition.

New general manager J.J. Picollo traded the Royals’ top position player per WAR at Baseball Reference, Michael A. Taylor, to the Minnesota Twins for a pair of minor league pitchers and dealt injury-prone but promising speedster Adalberto Mondesi — who stole 119 bases in just 286 games the last five seasons — to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Josh Taylor.

The Royals’ biggest additions were Jordan Lyles, a solid if unspectacular mid-rotation type, and perhaps Franmil Reyes, who has hit 30 homers twice in a season and signed a minor league deal with Kansas City in February. Even in a typically mediocre AL Central, it’s hard to see a path even to the fringes of contention as the Royals embark upon another long rebuild.
