We are now into June, and there are a few teams that are going to be thrilled to see May leave and a few that are going to be devastated to see it gone. Check out the teams in the American League that have been the best and the worst to your bankrolls of late on the MLB betting lines.
 
Money-Makers
 
Oakland Athletics (15-2, +$1,432 in L/17) – The argument could be made that this is one of the most unlikely runs that we have seen in the majors this year. Oakland has rolled off wins in 15 of its last 17 games, and it is now right there with the Texas Rangers for the best record in the AL West, something that seemed unfathomable just a few weeks ago.
 
On Deck: There haven't been a lot of tough road games of late for the A's, and these next six on the road aren't all that difficult either. Trips to the slumping Brewers and White Sox are on deck, and there isn't a truly threatening series coming until the trip to Arlington on June 17.

Houston Astros (6-0, +$1,231 in L/6)
– If you bet a single dollar on the Astros and parlayed that single dollar and the winnings from each of the last five games together, you'd have nearly $800 right now in your pocket. The oddsmakers are essentially insinuating that the odds on Houston winning six straight games on the road are nearly 800/1, but that's exactly what has happened over the course of the last week for one of the worst teams in baseball.
 
On Deck: Inevitably, the losing is going to start again, and when it does, it is going to probably hurt. Houston has Baltimore and Kansas City on tap, and we would be shocked to see the team go better than 2-4 in those games.
 
Minnesota Twins (7-2, +$670 in L/9) – Give props to Manager Rod Gardenhire for getting his Twins back on track. It was only two weeks ago that this was one of the coldest teams in the game, but after winning seven out of nine, the Twinkies are in third place in the AL Central and only 4 1/2-games out of the division lead.
 
On Deck: The problem for the Twins is that they haven't played well on the road all year long, and that will probably continue this week on road trips to Kansas City and Washington.
 
Money-Burners
 
Los Angeles Angels (0-4, -$885 in L/4) – It's not that losing four straight games is that devastating of a losing streak, but to lose four straight games at home against the ASTROS of all teams? This really should be the end of the road for Manager Mike Scioscia, knowing that his team only scored a total of eight runs in four games against the most embarrassing pitching staff in the game.
 
On Deck: It can't get much easier than it just was, so every game looks losable right now. The team has two from the visiting Cubbies before heading East for games against the Red Sox and Orioles into the middle of next week.
 
Chicago White Sox (0-7, -$737 in L/7) – It was only a week ago that this was a .500 club, but all of a sudden, the White Sox aren't hitting the baseball anymore, and with it has come a ton of losses. The Pale Hose have been shut out three times during this seven-game skid.
 
On Deck: The Mariners and the Athletics have already held Chicago to just a total of five runs in its last four games combined, and after finishing this series with the M's on Tuesday and Wednesday, its home for another series with Oakland for four games this weekend.
 
New York Yankees (2-7, -$720 in L/9) – The sign is there that the Yankees are going to get out of their offensive woes at some point now that 1B Mark Teixeira and 3B Kevin Youkilis are back in the lineup. However, losing four games in a row to the hated Mets isn't going to make the Steinbrenner boys all that happy. Neither did losing two out of three to the Red Sox over the weekend.
 
On Deck: This series with Cleveland is surprisingly huge at this point in the season. After this one is over with, the Bronx Bombers are headed out West for a long 10-game roadie with stops in Seattle, Oakland, and LA.
