Who's Cold - American League
Three of the teams which made the playoffs last season in the American League aren't anywhere near doing well for their MLB betting fans. Check out the teams in the AL that are burning the biggest holes in your pockets.

Cleveland Indians (11-17, -$783) – The Tribe are coming off of a god awful West Coast swing in which their offense was nowhere to be found. They scored just 13 runs over the course of the six games, which isn't going to cut it. The starting pitching staff just hasn't been all that efficient either. Things need to pick up in Cleveland in a hurry, because this division isn't going to end up waiting around for the Indians to get back in the swing of things. There are just far too many good teams to deal with.

Tampa Bay Rays (13-16, -$761)
– The Rays swept a day/night doubleheader at Fenway Park on Thursday to get them out of a bit of a slump. The difference between this season and previous campaigns for Tampa Bay is that this year's team just doesn't seem to have enough pitching to win. Matt Moore, Jeremy Hellickson, and Alex Cobb are all on the DL at the moment for long periods of time, and Manager Joe Maddon is stuck having to cut and paste a starting staff together. It's not working all that well right now, though the men who were thrown into the mix on Thursday got the job done against the Red Sox.

Boston Red Sox (13-16, -$746) – We're not really all that sure just how good these Red Sox are this year. They've got a great starting pitching staff, but they aren't all that fantastic in the batting lineup this year without Jacoby Ellsbury in the fold. The team is batting just .243 and is averaging just a tick over four runs per game, but that isn't going to be good enough at this level. The Sox are finding themselves in a lot of trouble on the MLB betting lines because they are constantly big time favorites. They're just 6-10 so far on the campaign at home. About the only good news is that no one has asserted itself as the big dog in the AL East, and until that happens, there are only three games separating first and last place. There's plenty of time for Boston to build an identity.
