MLB Opening Day for the 2021 season is only a few weeks away. After a shortened 2020 season, all 30 teams are starting with zero wins and the singular goal of winning the World Series. The Philadelphia Phillies will be one of those teams looking to take a significant leap this season.
The Phillies finished last season with a record of 28-32 and third place in the NL East. We will be taking a look at their win total for this season and discussing if they will be going over or under using odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
Philadelphia Phillies Over 80.5 wins (-134)
The Philadelphia Phillies will be trying to get back to the postseason for the first time in several years and go over the 80.5 win threshold. The last time the Phils went over was in 2019, when they finished 81-81.
Philadelphia is basically bringing back most of their key players, which is hopefully a good sign for Joe Girardi’s second year with the ball club. The top half of the rotation is set with Aaron Nola, Zack Wheeler, and Zach Elfin. And the Phillies still got Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto sitting in the middle of the batting order. With all those things plus an upgraded bullpen, the best bet is to take over 80.5 wins at -134.
