Earlier today William Hill released their Major League Baseball season win totals. These are different from the openers from Westgate on Sunday that I wrote about on Vegas Chatter.

Any limit bets over or under of any of this totals will change the number. If you want to wager on the totals close to these numbers you should act quickly. If you need a point of reference for these totals here’s a link to the 2015 season win PECOTA projections that I posted last week.

What is PECOTA? Here’s some info from Baseball Prospectus.

(PECOTA) Stands for Player Empirical Comparison and Optimization Test Algorithm. PECOTA is BP’s proprietary system that projects player performance based on comparison with historical player-seasons. There are three elements to PECOTA:

1) Major-league equivalencies, to allow us to use minor-league stats to project how a player will perform in the majors;
2) Baseline forecasts, which use weighted averages and regression to the mean to produce an estimate of a player’s true talent level;
3) A career-path adjustment, which incorporates information about how comparable players’ stats changed over time.

Check out the PECOTA section of the glossary for more on the system’s intricacies.
