MLB betting favourites for the American League
- Updated: April 18, 2013
This season’s MLB American League is expected to be a fiercely contested affair, as it will feature some of the very best sides currently competing in the MLB – including the Blue Jays, the Angels, the Red Sox and the Tigers – which will make betting on the potential winners harder than ever this season. The hot favourites with the sports betting sites are the LA Angels, who have odds of just 4/1 at most of these sites – but betting on them is no sure fire thing, as there are plenty of sides who could upset their hopes.
Another of the strong contenders pre-season are the Toronto Blue Jays, and you can get 4/1 on them at some sites as well, which reflects the fact that they have spent big to put themselves in contention – including signing the big hitter Jose Reyes. Another side rated as serious contenders ahead of the start of the season are the Detroit Tigers, with odds of 9/2, and they have also improved their batting with the signing of Torii Hunter. He may be a veteran these days, but his batting record with the Angels last season showed he still has what it takes at the very top level, and he appears to be supported by the sort of strength throughout the team that can see the Tigers go all the way.
Indeed, such is the quality throughout much of the American League that it is very hard to pick a winner ahead of the start. It may be better to wait and see how the sides actually perform, and play a game like Hot Shot in the meantime. Hot Shot, which can be found at most online casino sites like gaming club online casino, is a baseball themed slots game and features graphics of a field, bats and balls alongside reel icons of catchers mitts, baseball caps, pitchers and hitters. These impressive graphics are complemented by great use of audio effects, with the murmurs of the crowd that feature throughout building to cheers should you score a reel with the scatter symbol (the gold cup), and each winning reel soundtracked by bat on ball. Throw in a maximum cash jackpot of $2000 and nine pay lines, and you have a great game for any lover of baseball and betting.
