The offseason spending spree may not have had the effect on the American League East Division of MLB like in seasons ago but that does not mean that the potency of its teams has dwindled. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are two of the leading candidates and oddsmakers have tabbed the Yankees as the odds-on faves to win the AL East.
Online sportsbook BetOnline gets got the Yankees as the -135 betting favorite to win the AL East, which will be. The Red Sox aren’t far behind at +120 followed Toronto Blue Jays in +4000, from the Tampa Bay Rays at +950 and Baltimore Orioles in +30000.
My Select To win the AL East
New York Yankees -135
I will ride with the Evil Empire with this one because I believed they had a fantastic shot to overtake the Sox last year to win the branch before Aaron Judge got hurt and newcomer Luis Severino forgot how to pitch. I expect the two of these players to have huge bounce-back seasons and for the Yankees relievers to close the door once games get into the sixth inning. In addition, I think Giancarlo Stanton could have a monster year in his second season in pinstripes and to receive them at -135 today might be the ideal value because if they begin hot, bettors won’t see their odds at a plus value again.
