MLB AL Odds Power Rankings: Rays Stay On Top, Yankees Charging

The Tampa Bay Rays are still the class of the American League, while New York’s odds to win the Pennant have started rising after a hot stretch.

Below are the top ten favorites to win the American League from the FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Tampa Bay Rays +280 (Last week: +330)

The gap has indeed closed for the Tampa Bay Rays, despite owning the best record in baseball, but they still hold the mark at 35-14. With the Rays continued consistent play, they’ve seen their odds once again bet down from +330 to +280. 

2. Houston Astros +360 (Last week: +350)

If you’re looking for the hottest team in the big leagues, look no further than the defending World Series champs, the Houston Astros. The ‘Stros have won eight straight games and are 9-1 over their last ten. Still, their odds of winning the American League have actually fallen from +350 to +360. 

3. New York Yankees +650 (Last week: +700)

It hasn’t been entirely positive for the New York Yankees this year, but you’re starting to see what this team is capable of. The Bronx Bombers have won four in a row and are 8-2 over their last ten, leading to their odds of winning the AL getting bet down from +700 to +650. 

4. Toronto Blue Jays +700 (Last week: +550)

After a positive start to May, the Toronto Blue Jays have hit a wall as the end of May looms. The Blue Jays have lost five straight games, leading to their odds of winning the Pennant dropping from +550 to +700. 

5. Minnesota Twins +750 (Last week: +800)

It hasn’t been an overly positive stretch from the Minnesota Twins of late, but they do manage to still lead the American League Central. The Twins have seen their odds slightly rise from +800 to +750 over the last week. 

6. Texas Rangers +1200 (Last week: +1300)

We’re certainly getting to the point of the year where the Texas Rangers have proven themselves enough that we should take them seriously. Oddsmakers certainly are, with the Rangers getting bet down again from +1300 to +1200 to win the AL. 

7. Los Angeles Angels +1600 (Last week: +1200)

Two straight wins for the Los Angeles Angels have helped pick them up from their recent struggles. The Angels sit at 26-23 but have seen their odds of winning the American League fall from +1200 to +1600. 

8. Seattle Mariners +1800 (Last week: +1600)

There’s been a real lack of consistency coming from the Seattle Mariners, who’ve posted a 5-5 record over their last ten games and continue to sit one game below .500. As a result, the M’s odds of winning the AL have dropped off again from +1600 to +1800. 

9. Baltimore Orioles +2000 (Last week: Unranked in Top Ten)

You’re starting to see the Baltimore Orioles gain even more respect as they’re back to being in the top ten odds of winning the Pennant. The Orioles boast a strong 31-16 record, leading to their +2000 odds of winning the American League. 

10. Boston Red Sox +2500 (Last week: +3000)

It’s been an up-and-down year for the Boston Red Sox, but they still manage to sit four games above .500 and continue to hold a spot inside the top ten. Boston has been bet down from +3000 to +2500.
