Guardians Odds 2023 | Best Guardians Spreads, Props, & More

Last Updated: Mar 6, 2023

The Cleveland Guardians went 92-70 last season en route to winning the American League Central. They went 46-35 at home and 46-35 on the road with a run differential of plus-64.

In addition to the contributions of superstar third baseman José Ramirez, the Guardians received a massive boost from all-star shortstop Andrés Giménez, Amed Rosario, and rookie standout Steven Kwan.

The Guardians rotation continues to be anchored by former Cy Young award winner Shane Bieber. However, the emergence of Triston McKenzie gave Cleveland a true dynamic duo to keep them competitive all season.

Here are our best bets for the Cleveland Guardians in 2023.

Guardians Top Betting Odds 2023

Cleveland Guardians MLB betting odds are current as of Dec.15, 2022, from Caesars Sportsbook.

  • World Series Winners (+3300)
  • Win American League pennant (+1600)
  • Win AL Central (+145)
  • Total Wins: Over 87.5 (-110) | Under 87.5 (-110)

After winning the AL Central last year, the Guardians are once again expected to take the division in 2023. The Chicago White Sox lost former MVP Jose Abreu in free agency, while the Minnesota Twins look to rebound from a disappointing season.

Meanwhile, Cleveland bolstered their lineup by adding switch-hitting first baseman Josh Bell to the mix, in addition to slugging catcher Mike Zunino.

The best bet for Ohio Sports Betting fans may be the Over/Under.

Guardians Futures Bets 2023

Guardians To Win AL Central (+145) | Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Guardians will look to repeat as AL Central champions after a surprising 2022 campaign that saw the White Sox underperform.

Reigning AL Manager of the Year, Terry Francona, will be back at the helm to coach one of the youngest rosters in Major League Baseball.
Cleveland has a bonafide MVP, Cy Young, and Closer of the Year candidate anchoring their team, and the addition of Bell should allow for more consistency on offense.

It will be a close divisional race, but the Guardians competition has done little to improve. In fact, both Chicago and Minnesota are arguably worse.

Guardians OVER 87.5 Wins (-110) | Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

After securing 89 wins in 2022, hitting the over on 87.5 does not seem like a tall order with most of the roster returning next season.

Guardians Player Prop Bets 2023

José Ramirez Wins AL MVP (+1600) | Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Ramirez dealt with a hand injury that inhibited his ability to perform at his best during the second half of the 2022 season.

However, the Guardians superstar still manged to post a .280/.355/.514 slash line with 29 home runs, 126 RBI, and 20 stolen bases over 685 player appearances.

If the third baseman can stay healthy for the entire 2023 campaign, there is no reason he should not be among the top candidates to claim the American League VP honors.


How to Bet Guardians Moneylines

Moneyline bets are a simple way of wagering on MLB games. All you need to do is pick the winner of the game, and you’ll win your bet.

The odds are quite easy to understand, too. For example, if the Guardians are a (-200) favorite, you would have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.

These odds will change every day depending upon the Guardians’ matchup, so there’s always an opportunity for value every step of the way.

How to Bet Guardians Run Line

Run Line betting is another common way to bet on MLB games, and you’re probably already familiar with it. You may know it as how much a team is “picked by" to win.

If the Guardians are 1.5 run favorites over the Royals, the Run Line would look something like this: Guardians -1.5 (-200) vs Royals +1.5 (+200).

In this scenario, the Guardians would have to win by more than one run to cash your bet.

How to Bet Guardians Over/Unders

If you’re unsure about the Guardians moneyline or run line on a given day, you can still place a bet on the Over/Under — or total — in the matchup.

Sportsbooks will set a line for how many combined runs they project will be scored. From there, you can bet on the Over or Under.

For example, if you believe in the Guardians offense and think it’ll be a high-scoring game, then you’ll want to take the Over. However, if it’s supposed to be more of a pitchers duel, you should go with the Under.
