AL East Standings Right Now
This is where you can find the current American League East standings and the one thing you can be certain about this division is that not much will separate top from bottom among this hotly-contested group.

Three of those teams went on to play for the World Series - the Rays, the 2009 Yankees and the Red Sox, with both New York and Boston bringing Fall Classic titles to the AL East during that span.
That's good to know from a betting standpoint because you can be certain that whichever teams comes out on top of of the American League East has a legitimate chance to go all the way.
How To Win At American League East Betting
Just when you thought the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox were in a state of distress, the two American League East powerhouse clubs make incredible comebacks to rule the division again.
The Red Sox finished last in the division in 2015 with a 78-84 record, while the Yankees missed the post-season in 2016 after placing fourth overall in the AL East.
In 2017, both clubs returned to the top of the division, led by the Yankees whose youthful bats have many wondering if the Bronx Bombers can contend for a World Series sooner than later.
However it’s the Red Sox and Blue Jays that are built more for championship runs today. The Red Sox boast one of the best batting orders in baseball and the same can be said about Toronto’s starting pitching rotation, which features Marco Estrada, Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez.
Mookie Betts, arguably the best player in the division, finished the 2016 campaign with 31 home runs and 113 RBIs while maintaining a .318 batting average.
