The defending champion Nationals 60-game projected win total set at 32.5

PointsBet is higher on the defending champions, listing their projected win total at 33.5 games. The Nationals are one of four NL East teams with a projected win total of 30+ games. Last year, Washington was able to overcome a 19-31 start to earn an eventual playoff berth. They can ill afford a start like that in MLB’s new format this year if they hope to defend their championship. The Nationals had a key departure in the middle of the lineup in Anthony Rendon, so players like Juan Soto will look to fill the void offensively.
