2013 American League Season: Detroit Tigers Claim Pennant

Detroit Tigers: Headed for repeat in American League

Detroit won the 2012 American League title to advance to the World Series, where they were swept by the San Francisco Giants in four games. Detroit had swept the New York Yankees in the ALCS, giving them a five-day layoff in between series, which could have caused their offensive woes in the Fall Classic. They should have no trouble repeating as American League champions once again in 2013.

Toronto Blue Jays: Strongest threat to Detroit in AL

With all of the upgrades made in the off-season by the Blue Jays, Toronto should be the strongest threat to the Tigers in the American League this season. The Blue Jays have added a slew of talent including NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey. Also new to the team are Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, and Melky Cabrera. The Blue Jays have not made the playoffs since they won the World Series in 1993.

For the American League 2013 outlook, we use the sportsbook found at to determine the odds for the Tigers to win the AL pennant for a second year in a row. The Tigers are at +350 to win the AL pennant in 2013. The Blue Jays, the team we think will lose to the Tigers in the ALCS, are the top favorite to win the pennant at +325. We will bet that Detroit claims its second straight crown at +350.
