It’s almost Opening Day, so time to roll out the annual New English D over/unders. You all know how this works. I’ll be setting the value at what expect to be the mean value. So I’m setting the over/under at 87.5 wins, meaning I think it’s equally likely that they win more games as it is that they win fewer games. Feel free to suggest others in the comments section and weigh in on where you stand on some of the more interesting ones.

  1. Conservative on the ‘Times one of those Ausmus things sends me into a rage filled tweetstorm’. Assuming the Tigers lose 74.5 games, I put the o/u at 149. Would like to see Victor stay as healthy as you project.
