MLB odds 2014: Vegas sets over/under for Rockies wins at 76.5

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies will be in the bottom 10 in the league in wins, according to early Vegas odds. Their division rivals in Los Angeles are expected to be the best team in the game.

The over/under on wins this season for the Rockies has been set at 76.5, according to Bovada.LV.

That seems like a very accurate figure, but one that can be surpassed if the Rockies stay healthy. However, given the improvement of most of the other teams in the division -- as well as factoring in some regression to the mean for the Giants -- Colorado could feasibly face an uphill climb just to improve by three wins over last year. That would put the Rox at 77 wins. If I were a betting man, I would cautiously take the over, knowing that they won't get there by much.

Here are the over/under numbers on wins for the entire NL West:

Dodgers: 92.5

Giants: 86.5

Diamondbacks: 80.5

Padres: 78.5

Rockies: 76.5

If you buy into Vegas' accuracy, the Dodgers, Cardinals, Nationals, Athletics, Tigers and Rays will be division winners in 2014.
