Best MLB season win total best bets for 2017

For the third year in a row, ESPN Chalk has published my season win total outlook for all 30 MLB teams. Last year, there were 21 over/under recommendations which went a sparkling 16-5, and in 2015 there were 16 plays which finished 10-5-1. This year, there are 17 selections, 10 in the National League and seven in the American League, which you can find in the team write-ups.

Unlike single game bets which, in practice, I weight based on perceived edge versus the stated money line, I tend to keep my total wins plays at a constant unit level. Nonetheless, I have favorites among this year's 17 recommendations. Below are my four best bets -- one over and one under in each league.
