With so many teams in the thick of the American League playoff chase, there was never a doubt that some were going to be hot and soaring, while others were going to be cold and falling off as we head down the stretch. Join us today as we look at the best and the worst of late in the world of baseball betting in the AL.

Money-Makers

Boston Red Sox (12-3, +$820 in L/15) - The BoSox are on a roll again, and as a result, they're probably safely in the playoffs. They're not taking anything for granted though after what happened in 2011.

On Deck: Taking two out of three at the Trop against the Rays would remove all doubt as to who was winning the AL East, but there is still the matter of the best record in the American League to deal with as well.

Toronto Blue Jays (10-3, +$820 in L/13)
- Some rare heart from the Jays? Ok, if you really look at it, it was really just a dud of a schedule that got Toronto to win 10 out of 13.

On Deck: The Jays have a bit of a reprieve here against the Angels, but then come the big boys from Baltimore, New York, and Boston again. That's likely when we'll see Toronto going back in the other column and be ice cold.

Oakland Athletics (11-3, +$643 in L/14) - Run production has been good for Oakland of late, and though it hasn't been able to shake the rest of the field in the AL to lock up a spot, the team is looking good for the time being.

On Deck: If Oakland is still in front of the AL West after this weekend's series in Arlington, it's clear sailing from there. What's left are six with the Halos, four with the Twins, and three with the Mariners.

Money-Burners

Tampa Bay Rays (4-11, -$1,042 in L/15) - Manager Joe Maddon will be happy when he doesn't have to see the West Coast any longer. The Rays are 3-15 in their last 18 road games on the West Coast, and that's why they're struggling to hold onto their playoff spot.

On Deck: At least Tampa Bay is back at home, but if it doesn't sweep Boston this week, there is no hope to get back into the AL East chase.

Texas Rangers (3-7, -$834 in L/10) - The Rangers picked a bad time to go in the tank, as losing seven out of 10 has taken what was an AL West lead and turned it into a two-game deficit with less than three weeks to play.

On Deck: The club has it rough this next week and a half with games against the Pirates, A's, and Rays, but after that, the last seven are against the Astros and Angels. There will be a shot to go on a run here after all.

Chicago White Sox (2-9, -$590 in L/11) - Losing nine straight road games will do that to you. The Sox have the potential to end up with the worst road record in baseball this year, and that 25-51 mark is what is really holding this team back.

On Deck: At least they're home games, but the Tigers and the Indians for six games don't exactly make for good results in all likelihood.
