The MLB season has reached its midway point and also the chances to win the American League and National League pennants are out. The AL has three teams that have retreated from the bunch in the Houston Astros (+220), Boston Red Sox (+235) and New York Yankees (+275). The NL is a whole lot tighter with four nightclubs holding similar odds to clinch the pennant. Those groups are the Chicago Cubs (+330), Los Angeles Dodgers (+400), Atlanta Braves (+650) and Philadelphia Phillies (+650).
Even though there are other teams in the AL that may competition for the pennant, I think it’s a three-horse race and there’s one which has the edge over the others. In terms of the NL, the four clubs already mentioned are definitely worth a wager, but there might be a couple other teams providing adequate price.
Here is my pick for the AL from the three and also my two sleeper picks outside the top four teams in the NL.
