Cleveland Guardians 2024 World Series Odds

Cleveland Guardians MLB Betting

After making the playoffs three straight seasons from 2016 through 2018, the Cleveland Guardians made it again in 2020 and 2022. Last year was the second losing season in three years for the Guardians, who offered no value to gamblers. In the weak American League Central, better results are expected. Not much is expected by the Guardians on the future market, with little in the way of betting activity.

Cleveland Guardians MLB Betting Odds

In 2023, the Cleveland Guardians had a record of 76-86 and finished 3rd in the American League Central Division. Offensively, Cleveland ranked 27th for runs scored, 13th for batting average, 27th for OPS, 30th for home runs, and 5th for stolen bases.

Defensively, Cleveland ranked 10th for earned run average, 18th for WHIP, 1st for strikeouts, 14th for quality starts, 16th for fewest errors, and 9th for bullpen ERA. Cleveland was -1058 on the moneyline and -1000 on the run line.

Last season, the Guardians were one of the worst values on the board. Gamblers that did get involved with Cleveland did so in opposition, making a nice profit in the process.

Key offseason acquisitions include RHP Scott Barlow, OF Estevan Florial, C Austin Hedges, RHP Ben Lively, 3B Deyvison De Los Santos, RHP Carlos Carrasco (Minor League deal)

Key offseason departures include RHP Cal Quantrill, RHP Enyel De Los Santos, RHP Cody Morris, and OF Oscar Gonzalez.

Despite plenty of roster needs and a $96 million payroll that ranks 26th out of 30, the Guardians have been one of the least active teams this offseason.

They made an Enyel De Los Santos-for-Scott Barlow reliever exchange with the Padres. They dealt another reliever, Cody Morris, to the Yankees for former outfield prospect-turned-project Estevan Florial. And that’s it, aside from replacing Hall of Fame manager Terry Francona with Stephen Vogt and winning the draft lottery.

Cleveland dumped Cal Quantrill, who was due a raise to $6.5 million via arbitration, but so far, at least Shane Bieber remains. They can compete again in the decrepit American League Central without trying much. Still, it’s hard not to fault the Guardians’ approach after a third-place finish in baseball’s worst division.

Having a less active offseason than the rival Twins takes a real effort. But that’s life in the mediocre American League Central, where the incentive to improve is moderate.

Cleveland ranks 26th for MLB payroll.
