Cleveland Guardians 2023 MLB Preview, Season Odds & Betting Props

The AL Central division was weak in 2022, and it appears to be even weaker in 2023. The Cleveland Guardians have a good chance of taking the division title again with their estimated $91 million payroll, which ranks in the bottom 10 of all baseball teams.

Despite this, they have a history of existing and excelling on the margins through veteran moves, occasional free agent signings, and a strong pitcher development system. As a sports betting analyst, it may be worth considering the Guardians’ chances given their successful track record despite their low payroll.

What to expect in 2023?

According to ZiPS and Steamer projections, the Cleveland Guardians are expected to win around 83 games in 2023, which should be enough to take the AL Central division title by a few games over the Minnesota Twins. PECOTA sees slightly more in both teams, with Cleveland winning the division with 89 wins over Minnesota’s 88 wins.

The most likely outcome is that an 80-something win team from either Cleveland or Minnesota will win the division, while another similarly ranked team vies for a wild card spot. FanGraphs does not have much confidence in either team making a postseason run, giving them less than three percent odds of winning the World Series and only about a coin flip’s chance of making playoffs at all. As a sports betting analyst, it may be worth considering these projections when placing bets on these teams’ outcomes.
