This season’s MLB American League is tipped to be extremely competitive, and this is reflected in the fact that there are three sides with very closely comparable odds at the top of the pre-season rankings. Clearly the LA Angels, the Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays are all considered to be serious bets for the pennant – indeed you can get odds as low as 4/1 on all of them at some sports betting sites – but even outside of these three sides, there are other teams in contention.
From the East Division of the AL, it would be hard to completely rule the Yankees out of the running, although they are behind the favourites on account of an ageing team and a couple of potentially damaging suspensions, while the Red Sox are expected to produce far better form than they displayed last season. From the West Division, the Rangers are one of the few sides that could reasonably challenge the Angels for this title, and they certainly cannot be ruled out of contention for the AL pennant – which is reflected in the odds of 7/1 that you can get on them to win it.
Any of these sides, alongside the top three, has to be considered in with a real shot at winning the American League this season, making betting on the winner ahead of the start, a daunting proposition. For those who choose to wait and see how things develop once the season starts, playing Hot Shot at an online slots site, could provide a fine way to mix betting with baseball during that period. This slots game takes the baseball idea seriously, featuring fine graphics of pitchers, catchers’ gloves, hitters, and a baseball field, and sound effects of bat striking ball and cheering crowds. These audio effects really add to the experience, and with Hot Shot offering a wild symbol – which can stand in for other missing symbols to make a winning reel – and nine pay lines, you really have a good chance of winning some money by playing – and hearing those sounds.
