Over/Under Tampa Bay Rays Wins In 2013: 87.5

Vegas has the Rays’ over/under win total at 87.5. During thousands of projections, the Rays averaged 88 wins. And about two-thirds of the ESPN experts think the Rays will make the playoffs. To me, the Rays feel like an 88-89 win team. If they stay healthy and get one or two career-years from lesser bats, they could win 95 and easily make the playoffs. If nobody steps up offensively and there are injuries to key players, the Rays will be down around 84-85 wins and miss the playoffs. But one thing going for the Rays is that both the Yankees and Red Sox could struggle this year. And that will make games in the division more winnable than usual. So I have the Rays winning 91 games and being one of the two Wild Card teams…OVER
