Who's Hot - AL Edition
In the American League this year, baseball bettors have been treated to a few teams that have really overachieved their expectations, but they have had to endure a number of teams who have badly underachieved as well. Today, we'll look at the overachievers of the bunch who are really raking in the green almost two months into the 2014 campaign.

Toronto Blue Jays (31-22, +$924)
– The Jays just keep doing well, and they are really doing their damage on the road. They're 16-11 this year away from Rogers Centre, and that has equated into $724 worth of profits. Even on the run-line, Toronto has been massive this year, posting the best record in the league at +$1,400 (33-20). This offense is averaging right at 5.00 runs per game, and a lot of that is because there have been a ton of guys mashing the baseball. Edwin Encarnacion has 16 homers on the season, while Jose Bautista has 12 jacks. Melky Cabrera and Brett Lawrie both have eight bombs, while both Colby Rasmus and Juan Francisco have lifted off nine times each. That's a heck of a lot of power from one of the better power hitting lineups in the game.
 
Minnesota Twins (24-25, +$671) – You don't need a winning SU record in order to be a winning team for your wagering supporters, and the Twins are proof of that. Thanks to the fact that this is a club with the worst pitching staff in the game, the Twins are usually underdogs against most comparable clubs. Alas, it's true that a 4.61 ERA is going to end up getting you killed, especially when your starting pitchers by just about every metric imaginable are the worst in the league. No one has more than five wins, yet this team is still way ahead of the game for bettors. Be careful, though. Minnesota has a heck of a schedule coming up with games against teams like the Rangers and Yankees, and there's a long road trip ahead in Toronto, Detroit, and Boston as well. Troubling waters are certainly ahead for Gardy’s troops.
 
Chicago White Sox (27-27, +$655) – The White Sox are another example of a team which isn't lighting it up in terms of wins and losses but is doing well in totality for bettors. Even though the North Siders are just 15-12 at home, they are up over four units this year as a result. Again, we do have to throw some caution to the wind here, though. Chicago is down $254 for the season on the run-line, and it is winning a lot of close games, especially when installed a narrow favorite. There is a likelihood that there is going to be a bit of a market correction at some point. A horrid bullpen without a consistent back end stopper is going to really bite this team in the backside sooner rather than later.
