MLB AL East Betting Lines

The American League East division is typically loaded with slugging lineups. Four of the five ballparks in this division are known as tremendous “hitters parks” and that’s a big reason why those teams – Toronto, Baltimore, Boston, and the New York Yankees – construct their lineups to mash the ball year after year. The lone exception in this division are the Tampa Bay Rays who have always put a premium on pitching, but even on their best days, the best pitchers in this division get hit hard by these rivals.

With all those slugging lineups, parity within the AL East division tends to reign supreme. In the six years from 2010 to 2015, all five of the teams in the AL East has won the division, with the Yankees doing it twice. That means that you’ll see a lot of differing opinions with MLB AL East betting odds from MLB bettors everywhere.

Bet On MLB AL East Games

Finding success betting on MLB AL East betting lines can be defined by one generic trend in recent years: look heavily at the underdog.

Given how much parity there has been within this division, backing these five teams when they are underdogs against another rival typically proves profitable. Boston and New York especially, will always receive plenty of support from bettors given their popularity, and it’s a big reason why you will rarely find value with them as favourites. In fact, only the Toronto Blue Jays had a profitable season for bettors in 2015 from this division.

Toronto finished the year 93-69 SU but earned bettors nearly 11 units of profit (1 unit = $100) if they had bet on Toronto every single game. The other results weren’t as kind to MLB bettors, especially when you consider the Yankees finished 87-75 SU but were -3.39 units on the year. Baltimore, Boston, and Tampa also finished with negative unit results for bettors in 2015.

Yet, with the way things can flip around in this division from year to year, don’t expect the same franchises that struggled one year to follow that script the next. That’s why looking at these teams when they are underdogs is a great starting point when handicapping AL East games. All five of these teams can hit – and will always have strong offensive lineups – and teams that can do that always have a great chance to win.
