Time to place your bets, everyone: On this week's edition of The Strike Zone podcast, SI senior writer Ben Reiter joins Ted Keith and Stephen Cannella to take on Las Vegas, as the trio discusses predicted 2016 win totals across the league and pick their standout over/under lines.

Having just completed a spring training trip to Arizona and Florida, Ben jumps on the air with Ted and Steve to discuss which teams look strongest and weakest relative to their Vegas projections, focusing on four in particular: the Angels, Rays, Rangers and Rockies. Over the course of the show, the trio debate whether the Angels should consider the unthinkable and trade Mike Trout to rebuild a talent-deficient roster; if the Rays can find enough offense to supplement their terrific pitching; if the Rangers can prove that last year's American League West title was no fluke; and if the Rockies can actually find a path to future contention. Finally, Ben, Ted and Steve do a lightning round over/under for several teams, including the Cubs, Red Sox, Pirates and more.
