Best AL Central  Betting Sites

With the reigning World Series champion in Kansas City and a slew of up-and-coming contender teams, the AL Central could potentially feature multiple playoff squads in 2016. With the Royals locking up the American League in 2014 (as a wild card team) and 2015 (by winnning the division), they are no doubt the team to beat. The Twins (83-79) and Indians (81-80) following behind in second and third place, respectively. Every team in the division will make moves to chase down Kansas City as the Central’s top dog. 

Cleveland promoted general manager Chris Antonetti to President of Basetball Operations and assistant GM Mike Chernoff to to GM proper.  The White Sox were able to sign pitcher Mat Latos to a deal this year and it has already paid off as the pitcher started the season with an undefeated streak in April. Finally, the Tigers added veteran All-Star pitchers Francisco Rodriguez, Jordan Zimmerman and outfielder Justin Upton via free agency.The main storyline for Minnesota this year will be to see if their strategy of staying the course under manager Paul Molitor will be a bigger success in year two. 

The bigger storyline here might not be who wins the division, but how many teams make it to the postseason.

How To Win At AL Central Division Betting

In 2015 the AL Central featured the second-best regular season team in baseball, the Royals, and had the second-most consistently competitive division besides the AL East according to the combined winning percentages of each team.

In fact, Sports Illustrated picked the teams to finish in a similiar fashion from last year as the Royals were tabbed to repeat and the Indians and Tigers were chosen to finish around .500. This is feasible given the recent spending splurges of the Red Sox and Blue Jays. 

This essentially can mean a couple of things as the Central will have some solid but not great teams, so there is some room for some upsets.

The pitching rotation for Cleveland will be one of the strongest in baseball (51 wins in 2015) between the top four starters. The White Sox also upgraded their rotation and are off to one of the hottest streaks in baseball in April. Detroit made some of the biggest moves in free agency and are one of the sexier picks to make a run this year.
