New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles - Game Two Photo by Mitchell Layton/Getty Images | Katherine Acquavella: Every day we get closer to spring training, we’ll start to get more predictions, projections, and odds for the 2020 season. One sports book released their regular season win total over/unders, and the Yankees have the highest of any team at 101.5. That’s three more than the next highest team, which is the Dodgers at 98.5. The next highest AL East team is the Rays at 90, followed by the Red Sox at 89.5

No one who will play for the Yankees this year is a “no doubter,” but there are a couple who are on a good track and could make it depending on how the rest of their careers go, such as Giancarlo Stanton and Gerrit Cole.
