How To Bet On American League West

While the AL West showcases its big bats and array of strong starters like the other divisions in the American League, where it lacks is in postseason success. While the Rangers have been to the World Series on a couple of occasions, the division’s only championship came with the Angels in their lone trip to the Fall Classic.

Whoever you wager on in the AL West, the odds are usually provided by a money line. For example if the Angels are favourites in a game against the Mariners, the Angels will have a negative line and the underdog Mariners will have a positive one. If Los Angeles is at -155 and Seattle is at +155 you would have to wager $155 on the Halos to win $100 and $100 on the M’s to win $155. Money lines are routinely used for action on single games and series wagers. 

If you live in the east and you stay up late to catch the action in the AL West you’ll see a lot of runs, but you may also see your fair share of tight ball games as well. While some of the more exciting young hitters call the AL West home there are also some of the of starting pitchers in the league on AL West rosters. They may play most of the games on the west coast, but the action is anything but laid back.
