Looking for 2019 American League Pennant Futures Odds and MLB Betting props today? The American League is a real story of the haves and the have nots entering this season. Some team popping up and establishing itself as a threat to the elite clubs is inevitable, but it’s really difficult to envision a team outside of the top four or five squads representing the AL in the Fall classic.

Here’s a look at five teams in the hunt for the No. 1 spot in the A.L. this season:
2019 American League Pennant Futures Odds – My Top 3 Teams
New York Yankees +275
The Yankees (somewhat surprisingly) weren’t able to make a major splash in the offseason, missing out on both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, but there’s still no shortage of talent on the roster. One needs to only look at the middle of the order, where both Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge reside, to fear this roster.
A more comfortable Stanton with a year in New York under his belt, and a healthier year out of Judge, should help the Yankees catch the Red Sox in the AL East.
Don’t be surprised to see the front office make a move to add another starter to the rotation around the deadline in an effort to get back to the Fall Classic.
Boston Red Sox +300
The Red Sox are coming off their fourth World Series win since 2004, but there hasn’t been a lot of buzz around the team in the offseason. The roster’s going to look largely the same from the group that beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in October.
A lot fell right for the team a year ago – particularly in October – so a dip in output is to be expected, but there’s too much talent on the club to reasonably expect them to fall too far or even be at risk of missing the playoffs.
Houston Astros +300
Call it a quiet offseason if you’d like, but the Astros front office will surely point out their offseason was quiet because they didn’t have any significant moves to make. One move they did make was the addition of Michael Brantley, which is the kind of under the radar signing that could have all 29 other general managers kicking themselves.
Brantley has been terrific in Cleveland when he’s on the field, and a healthy year out of him could be the kind of thing that helps Houston find another gear. And they may need that from the offense with the starting rotation losing a couple key cogs, but with the way that unit’s shaped up in recent years, that may not be a concern come April.
2019 American League Pennant Futures Odds: With A Little Luck
Cleveland Indians +600
The Indians seem to perennially be the forgotten team among the true contenders in the American League. Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer both remain on the roster, so the team’s starting rotation remains the deepest and most feared in the American League.
The trade of Edwin Encarnacion came as a bit of a surprise, but Cleveland fans will be happy to see the return of longtime favorite Carlos Santana. Scoring runs should be an issue for the team, but pitching will remain their strength.
Tampa Bay Rays +1500
The addition of Tommy Pham at the deadline didn’t make a lot of waves, but it was a signal from the Rays front office that this team is ready to contend. A slew of injuries to the pitching staff may have wiped out their chances in 2018, but this team may be ready to take the next step in 2019.

If that wasn’t enough, the team went out and threw a bunch of money ($30 million over two years) at Charlie Morton, who’ll slot in behind Blake Snell as the No. 2 man in the rotation, ahead of Tyler Glasnow. The Rays are a team to watch in the early part of the 2019 season.
