For the last time prior to the All-Star break, we're going to be taking a look at the teams that are hot and the teams that are not in MLB betting action in the American League.

$$$-Makers

Tampa Bay Rays (8-1, +$676 in L/9) – We knew the Rays were going to go on a run at some point, and they have finally done it. With LHP David Price pitching so well off of his injury, this team is clearly one of the most dangerous in the bigs.

On Deck: Look out! The Rays very well could win at least five of these last seven games before the break, as they have the Twins and the Astros coming to Tropicana Field this week.

New York Yankees (6-1, +$496 in L/7) – New York really needed to put together a great week to stay in the thick of the fight in the American League. It got what it needed in the form of a four-game sweep against the Twins, and it did even better against the Orioles by taking two out of three to get back within a half game of second place in the division.

On Deck: The Yanks too, have a chance to make a move in the AL East this week. They have seven games at home against the Royals and the Twins, and again, they could win five of their last seven very reasonably to get to 53-42 or so by the break.


Seattle Mariners (4-2, +$422 in L/6) – The Mariners have the top two pitchers in the American League by the standard of ERA in RHP Felix Hernandez and RHP Hisashi Iwakuma. However, when these two aren't on the mound, the M's flat out stink. Last week though, the offense did enough to back up the pitching to win four of six, including two out of three against the Reds on the road.

On Deck: There really is a change for the M's to make a move here over the course of the next few weeks. They have 14 of their next 17 games at home, and the three on the road are in Houston.

$$$-Burners

Chicago White Sox (6-17, -$1,330 in L/23) – Or if you'd rather, the Sox are 10-27 and down $1,899 in their last 27 games. Both streaks are equally impressive. Chicago is one of the worst teams in the league for sure, and it is going to give the Astros and Marlins a run for their money for the worst record in the bigs.

On Deck: Does it matter? Three against the Tigers and Phillies on the road are probably only going to make the first half of this disastrous season seem all the more worse.

Minnesota Twins (4-12, -$720 in L/16) – Minnesota was always going to fall out of the race at some point, but this was an epic fail throughout a two and a half week period. The Twins have dropped 12 out of 16, and the fact of the matter is that things are going to get a whole heck of a lot worse.

On Deck: And here's why...Four games at Tampa Bay, three games at New York, three at home against Cleveland, three at LA, and four at Seattle are on deck. Thanks for playing this season, Minnesota. The next time we address this, the Twinkies will be nearly 20-games below .500.

Texas Rangers (3-3, -$315 in L/6) – Are the Rangers the coldest team in baseball? Absolutely not. In fact, they didn't even have a terrible week at 3-3. However, when you lose a game as a -320 favorite at home against the Astros, one of the worst teams that we have seen in baseball in quite some time, you qualify for "who's not" in the American League.

On Deck: Texas is only a half-game back of the A's with a week to go into the break, but this next month is absolutely brutal. The Rangers have to play the Orioles, Tigers, Orioles, Yankees, Tigers, Angels, Diamondbacks, A's, and Angels from now through August 12th!
