AL Central

Apr. 7: CHW has been hit by some significant injuries and started just 3-3, leading to their odds fading from  -146 to -116.

Feb. 10: CHW has shortened to -146 while second-favorite MIN faded to +177.

Jan. 25: The White Sox are -128 favorites to win their first division title since 2008.

The Indians wasted little time in claiming the AL Central as their own when the division was formed in 1994. Cleveland won six of the first seven AL Central crowns, including five straight from 1995 to 1999. They also won three straight from 2016-2018, but the Twins broke that streak last year and opened as favorites to win again in 2020.

AL West

Apr. 7: The still-undefeated Astros (+157 to -125) and still-winless Athletics (+123 to +218) have seen some of the biggest early divisional-odds movement.

Feb. 10: Not much change here. OAK continues to hold a slight edge on HOU.

Jan. 25: Oakland (+120) is slightly favored over Houston (+153) to defend its AL West title.
