How To Win At AL West Betting

The parity in the American League West leaves the division wide open for the taking each season. The Texas Rangers won it back-to-back seasons in 2015 and 2016 but prior to that the AL West had two different winners: Oakland in 2013 and Los Angeles in 2014.

The Rangers are well positioned to content not only for multiple division crowns, but also the World Series. The club boasts a deep lineup from top to bottom with young bats that include second baseman Rougned Odor and outfielder Nomar Mazara.

However it’s another Texas-based team that is rising through the ranks. The Houston Astros are on the verge of becoming a legitimate World Series contender. With a spectacular lineup that features second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa, the Astros will be a formidable force for years to come.

Another team to watch closely will be the Angels — a club that features two-time AL MVP Mike Trout. The superstar outfielder has the ability to carry his club to the post-season but the Angels will still need to improve their pitching staff in order to compete against the top clubs in the American League on a nightly basis. If you decided to but your money on the Angels, keep in mind the club performed better at home with a 40-41 record in 2016.
