With the 2023 MLB Opening Day of March 30 fast approaching, BetMGM released win totals for all 30 teams. Below, you’ll see all of those MLB win totals, two best bets to consider and our exclusive BetMGM offer to take advantage of now.
Three American League teams (the Astros, Yankees and Blue Jays) have 90-plus game win totals while four National League teams do (the Dodgers, Mets, Braves and Padres). Meanwhile, three AL teams have sub 70-game win totals (the Athletics, Royals and Tigers) while four NL teams do (the Nationals, Reds, Pirates and Rockies). Scroll down to take a look at all of them below by division.

Cardinals over 88.5 Wins -120 at DraftKings
In my opinion, the NL Central is going to be the weakest in baseball this season and no team has a 90-plus win projection, which is a bit odd. After signing Willson Contreras to take over for the retired Yadier Molina, St. Louis’ lineup is going to be dangerous from top to bottom. Reigning NL MVP Paul Goldschmidt and star Nolan Arenado will produce in the middle of the order while Tommy Edman, Brendan Donovan, Juan Yepez, Lars Nootbaar, and Dylan Carlson are young productive players with upside. Tyler O’Neill is coming off of a down year and if he rebounds, he can vault this above-average lineup into an elite one. St. Louis ranked 5th in runs scored last year and there are some top prospects (most notably Jordan Walker and Alec Burleson) who could produce in 2023.
On the mound, Adam Wainwright will return for his final season while Miles Mikolas, Jordan Montgomery, Jack Flaherty, and Steven Matz will likely round out the rotation. I also expect youngster Matthew Liberatore to enter the rotation at some point this year. With Ryan Helsley, Giovanny Gallegos, Jordan Hicks, and Andre Pallante in the bullpen, I’m confident that this team will be able to navigate and handle their competition. If they make some preseason or in-season moves, expect an impact arm or two, but I expect this team to win at least 90 games in the regular season.
Diamondbacks over 75.5 Wins -105 at DraftKings
The Arizona Diamondbacks won 74 games last season, and that was having to play the Dodgers and Padres a lot. Now, with the new schedule, they won't have to do that nearly as much, which certainly helps them get past this win total. However, there are plenty of other reasons to be excited about this Diamondbacks team. Top prospect Corbin Carroll just signed a massive contract with the team, and he is considered to be one of the best young players coming up through the pipeline in MLB. Alek Thomas showed some promise last season as well, and he'll look to build off his rookie season in 2022. Ketel Marte returns to the team as their best hitter and a reliable veteran leader for the young guys. Arizona also added Evan Longoria and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. to the squad, two more experienced vets.
The pitching rotation actually is really solid, especiallty at the top of the rotation. Zac Gallen is a Cy Young contender as their ace and one of the best pitchers in baseball. Merrill Kelly just started in the championship game of the World Baseball Classic, and is coming off a great 2022 season. Madison Bumgarner isn't the pitcher he used to be, but he also isn't completely incompetent on the mound. He's a guy who has been there and done that, and is going to the Hall of Fame at some point. Zach Davies will do enough to be able to lock down a bottom of the rotation spot.
Overall, I really like this team to go over this win total, and I wouldn't be shocked if they made the playoffs.
