With Opening Day for the 2018 Major League Baseball season here, Locked On MLB host Tommy Stokke takes you through his official predictions, from award winners to division winners to World Series champion. The season preview begins with a run through of all the win totals provided by Bovada as well as where the general public is leaning for each team. The Astros and Dodgers have the highest total at 96.5 wins. The lowest total belongs to the Miami Marlins at 64.5. People love taking the over. It shows in the numbers. After going over all of the totals, we look at the five best fake bets. The Dodgers, Giants, Diamondbacks, Reds and Twins are the teams we're taking in one way or another. Then, we look at division winners and MVP and Cy Young predictions before ending the show with the World Series call. Be careful, there's a lot of chalk in here. Learn more about your ad choices.

Welcome to Locked On MLB, your daily national MLB show hosted by Tommy Stokke as part of the Locked On Podcast Network. In today's episode, we recap some of the weekend's big news leading with two significant injuries to the San Francisco Giants and their starting rotation. Madison Bumgarner broke his hand and will miss around two months. Jeff Samardzija will miss about a month with a pectoral injury. Can the Giants survive without them? What will it take. If not, the Giants face an interesting summer with possibly changes coming that could alter the immediate future of the franchise. Those moves should at least be discussed should the season quickly go south. Also making news this weekend was the Philladelphia Phillies signing prospect Scott Kingery to a contract extension. Then on Monday, the Arizona Diamondbacks reportedly agreed to an extension with Ketel Marte. What do these extensions mean for the players, teams and future of contracts and free agency? The show ends with a quick look at Greg Bird and how the Yankees were smart to sort of prepare for a possible injury, which Bird has now suffered. Other teams may regret not taking advantage of the free agent market in the way the Yankees did. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Welcome to Locked on MLB, the national baseball podcast as part of the Locked On Podcast Network hosted by Tommy Stokke. Today's show discusses the Arizona Diamondbacks dealing with yet another outfield injury, which seems to happen every season. This time it's to newly-acquired Steven Souza, who was injured diving for a ball in the outfield. While nothing definitive is known about his shoulder injury, it looks like he could miss some time for the D-backs. Who will replace him and will the D-backs be able to overcome the injury early in the season? Greg Holland is still a free agent, and teams always need relievers. Who will step up and make a move for the closer? Holland saved 41 games last year for the Rockies for his terrible second half could be scaring teams away. The Cardinals and Mariners are two of the teams that should give Holland a call, but some others make sense, too. The show ends with a look around the league at notable performances and injuries, including Jake Arrieta's Phillies debut, Michael Conforto's big day for the Mets and Matt Kemp's role with the Dodgers. The Athletics have another injured pitcher; so do the Mets. The Indians appear to have avoided a scare, though. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Welcome to episode 3 of Locked on MLB with your host Tommy Stokke. Locked on MLB is part of the Locked on Sports Podcast Network. Today's episode takes a look at the Los Angeles Dodgers and Justin Turner's injury. Will the Dodgers regret not going after a certain free agent recently picked up? Where could the Dodgers go run this season after their World Series run last year? MLB released a list of top-10 lineups on Wednesday, and the Oakland Athletics came in at No. 10. Their inclusion on the list seemed to confused a lot of people, which is confusing because it's a powerful lineup. The Astros topped the list at No. 1. The show comes to a close with a look at injuries and notable performances as fantasy drafts get finalized before Opening Day.

Suarez signed a 7-year, $66-million extension with an option that could make it 8-years, $79 million. They're two different extensions, but they're both interesting in their own right. What kind of impact will each deal have on the market moving forward? The final segment discusses the odds released by Bovada for Cy Young and MVP. Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw are the Cy Young favorites. Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are the MVP favorites. Are they worth the investment? What other players offer good value?
