My online sportsbook (for entertainment purposes only) has not yet released the Over/Under lines for the 2007 season. It's always one of my favorite things to research and is always a better indictator of how the teams will finish than the various magazine previews. The O/U for the Reds was pretty low last year (something like 70.5). I wonder what they will open at this year. My guess is 80.5 and will probably take the over just to be loyal. No, I really think we are going to have a winning club this year. Just barely, but a winning club. My early projection is 83-79. Won't be enough to get us in the playoffs but will keep it interesting all year. Kind of like last year. But man would it be nice to break through and sneak in the playoffs. Now is the time to bite in the National League when there are no great teams. Make the postseason and anything can happen. As the very-average Cardinals (IMO) proved last season. I mean, they were above average of course, but not a World Series team. Anyway, will be interesting to see where the people who put their money where their mouths are have the Reds at to open the season.
