May 6: The Yankees are still atop the divisional odds despite dealing with injuries to 12 rotational players.

March 13: The Yankees have achieved some separation from the Red Sox after opening with nearly identical odds. Bookmakers appear to have concerns over the state of Boston’s bullpen after the team lost Joe Kelly and Craig Kimbrel to free agency, and Steven Wright to suspension.

The Red Sox won the World Series in 2018, but the AL East still belongs to the Yankees. New York has won 18 divisional titles since 1969.

AL Central

May 22: The Twins have leapfrogged the Indians after winning seven of their last 10.

May 6: Here come the Twins! Minnesota has the best record in the AL Central after winning seven of its last 10 games.

March 13: Cleveland’s short odds have gotten even shorter, going from -190 to -420. It’s a surprising development after the Indians depleted their roster in the offseason to trim their payroll.

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.

AL West

May 22: It’s only May, but the AL West is officially the Astros’ to lose. Houston’s odds have improved from to -1100 to -5500 since May 6th.

May 6: The shine is officially off the Mariners as Seattle has dropped seven of its last 10 games.

March 13: Bookmakers are bullish about the Astros, adjusting the team’s odds to -670. Houston now has the shortest odds of any Major League team to win its respective division.

The Astros became the first team in AL West history to record back-to-back 100-win seasons in 2017 and 2018. Can they accomplish the feat again this year?

NL East

May 22: The Braves (+210) continue to push the Phillies (-150) after winning seven of their last 10 games.

May 6: The Phillies now have a narrow 1.5 game cushion over the surging Braves after winning seven of their last 10.

March 13: Philadelphia’s odds have shortened significantly after a busy – and expensive – offseason in which they added former MVPs Bryce Harper and Andrew McCutchen, and proven All-Stars Jean Segura and JT Realmuto.

The Braves had a stranglehold on the NL East from 1995 to 2005, winning 11 consecutive divisional crowns. Atlanta never won fewer than 88 games during that remarkable span.

NL Central

May 22: The Cardinals are fading fast. Their divisional odds have lengthened from +140 on May 6th to +380 on May 22nd.

May 6: The Cubs are back atop the AL Central thanks to an impressive seven-game winning streak  against the Cardinals, Mariners and Diamondbacks.

March 13: The Cubs have pulled ahead of the Cardinals and Brewers by the narrowest of margins. Oddsmakers are counting on bounceback seasons from All-Stars Kris Bryant and Yu Darvish, both of whom struggled with injuries in 2018.

The Cubs have won two of the last three NL Central crowns, finishing first in 2016 and 2017. Can they return to the mountaintop again this year?

NL West

May 22: Can anyone catch the Dodgers? LA’s NL West odds have improved from -680 to -2300 over the past three weeks.

May 6: So much for 2019 being a rebuilding year for the Diamondbacks. Arizona sits just one game behind LA in the tightly-packed AL West.

March 13: The Dodgers retooled on the fly this winter by acquiring All-Stars AJ Pollock and Russell Martin and hard-throwing World Series champ Joe Kelly. The NL West is theirs to lose.

The Dodgers continued their reign in 2018 by winning their sixth straight NL West title. It’s an impressive streak, but it has yet to lead to a World Series championship, as Los Angeles has repeatedly come up short in the postseason.
