September is upon us, and teams from all over the American League are hoping to stay in the postseason race. They aren't the only hot ones though, and we're here today to show you the hottest and the coldest MLB betting teams that the AL has to offer.
 
Money-Makers
 
Chicago White Sox (8-1, +$990 in L/9) – Credit to the White Sox for at least fighting their butts off at the end of the year after dismantling their team at the trade deadline. They have won eight out of nine and really seem set to challenge some of the big boys down the stretch.
 
On Deck: This team is still 21 games under .500 for a reason, and after finishing up with Houston at home, the next 17 games are against Boston, New York, Baltimore, Detroit, and Cleveland. Have fun with that.

New York Yankees (10-4, +$866 in L/14)
– The Bronx Bombers have actually played good baseball with A-Rod in the lineup. They've got victories in 10 out of 14, but they’re still having troubles with some of the best teams in baseball.
 
On Deck: The Yanks are going to have to prove that they can beat the good teams eventually. They have three at Toronto this week followed by seven with Boston and seven with Baltimore between now and September 15th.
 
Cleveland Indians (8-3, +$511 in L/11) – Manager Terry Francona deserves to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame for the job he has done this year with the Tribe. They're still within striking distance of the playoffs, but they still have a lot of work to do.
 
On Deck: This is where Cleveland will prove whether it is in it to win it or not. The next six are at Atlanta and Detroit followed by three at home against Baltimore. From there it gets easier, but if a majority of these games are lost, it won't matter at that point.
 
Money-Burners
 
Kansas City Royals (1-7, -$827 in L/8) – The Royals aren't out of it, but that seven-game losing streak was surely devastating. Just finishing above .500 right now would be an accomplishment for a team that hasn't really been relevant in quite some time.
 
On Deck: There's still time, but these next six road games against the Twins and Blue Jays are imperative. In fact, after a one-game makeup with Tampa Bay, the next 10 are all against teams out of the playoff picture; time to make up some ground!
 
Toronto Blue Jays (1-7, -$650 in L/8) – The Jays are flat out in the tank at this point, and there really aren't many teams that we would bet them against. They too, just lost seven games in a row and only snapped that skid on Sunday.
 
On Deck: The schedule the rest of the way really is tough for Toronto, too, and losing 95 games isn't out of the question. The club has to play the Yanks and Royals at home this week before a just stupid schedule against Arizona and Minnesota on the road.
 
Oakland Athletics (1-4, -$430 in L/5) – The A's haven't done all that bad, but they lost a big opportunity this week to make a move on the Rangers. They lost four out of five, kept the Orioles in the race, and they have a lot of ground to cover in these last four weeks of the year if they are going to get into the postseason.
 
On Deck: It's not getting any easier from here, though. The next 10 games are against Detroit, Tampa Bay, and Texas, all of which are going to be competing for playoff spots as well. The A's have to get at least four or five of these to feel good about where they sit going into the post-Labor Day stretch.
