The LA Angels are +2800 odds to win the AL West. LA has a mark of 36-37 sitting 12 games back of the Astros. Their hitting has come around, but the starting rotation has been bad. They rank 30th and last in quality starts. Tyler Skaggs, Trevor Cahill and Matt Harvey all have high ERA’s. Rookie Griffin Canning has an ERA of 3.93 in nine starts.

Longshots in this bet are the Seattle Marines who return +7500 odds. Seattle got off to a hot start but have sunk to last place in the AL West at 31-45, twenty games in the loss column back of Houston. Pitching has been an issue with the Mariners as the team sits 29th and second last in ERA and WHIP. Mike Leake, Marco Gonzalez and Yusei Kikuchi all have ERA’s over four.
