MLB betting excitement will continue to build for an outstanding sprint in the American League where 4 highly profitable MLB baseball wagering commodities are in contention.
The Chicago White Sox are one of those teams that are in the thick of the American League playoff race as they were 3.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins in the American League Central. Most important of all to handicappers the White Sox were the biggest money winner in the American League.
The White Sox were playing well heading into September with 7 wins in 9 games from August 26-September 4. Chicago boasted one of the top starting staffs in the major leagues as they ranked 2nd in quality starts.
The offense ranked 7th best in the big leagues for run production as Paul Konerko was hammering the ball with a team best .321 average and 33 home runs.
Interestingly enough the Twins have been the second most profitable team in the American League with the MLB odds. Minnesota has been particularly effective at their new home of Target Field where they were 44-23. The Twins were also playing well as of late with a mark of 7-2 from August 26-September 4.
Minnesota has been a well balanced team as they ranked 6th overall in the majors for run production and 9th overall for staff earned run average.
It should be of no surprise that the New York Yankees have been one of the biggest money winners with the MLB lines this year. The defending World Series champions were great at home with a mark of 48-22 and were a solid road team as well going 38-28.
The Bronx Bombers have lived up to billing as they were the top ranked offensive team in all of baseball. New York went under the total in just 26 out of 70 home games and was riding an 8 game winning streak from August 28-September 4.
The Tampa Bay Rays were the fourth most profitable team in the American League and were an equally dangerous MLB betting commodity at home or away. The Rays continued to show great balance ranking 4th overall in run production and 6th for staff earned run average. The starting rotation was ranked 3rd best for quality starts.
