The MLB bets we would make in 2019

The Astros to win the AL West? Sure, if you like easy money. How about Yasiel Puig for MVP or the Rangers to win a playoff game? Those are just two of the long shots our writers and reporters are eyeing.

Points in the paint: Houston 24, Ohio State 6. Confounding, considering how much Kaleb Wesson dominated off the block inside during the Friday win over Iowa State. The Buckeyes' perimeter shooting is keeping them in the game, though. They're 10 of 23 from downtown.

Francisco Lindor has already been ruled out of Cleveland's opener with a calf injury (he'll start the season on the injured list) and now Jose Ramirez was carted off the field on Sunday after fouling a ball off his knee. Ramirez finished third in the AL MVP voting in 2018 and led MLB third basemen in home runs, steals, OPS and walk rate. This could be a little break for the Twins, expected to be Cleveland's best competition in the AL Central. The Twins host the Indians in the season-opening series.
