Over-under suggests Twins are going to be the worst team in the AL aside from Houston

The early over-under lines are out for the upcoming MLB season per Bovada and, well, they aren't kind to your Twins.

The site set the Twins' line at 67.5 wins -- the second-lowest total in the AL behind the woeful (and new to the league) Astros. The next-lowest above the Twins? Cleveland at 76.5. Yikes.

If there is a saving grace, we went back and looked at preseason over-under totals dating back to 2005. The preseason totals we found never ended up being within four games of the Twins' actual total.

Even a Twins pessimist -- a pessimist nonetheless gambling, for our purposes, with FAKE MONEY -- would be somewhat tempted by the over this year, correct?
