After a quarter of the MLB season, teams have begun to find their rhythm, but there's still plenty of time for each team to rise in the standings and make a playoff run.
The Oakland A’s currently claim first place in the AL West. Oakland’s record of 26-17 places them 1.5 games ahead of division-rival Houston Astros. The A’s have been on a tear as of late, winning seven of their last 10 games -- including a recent walk-off win over those Astros. Can they keep the momentum over the summer to make a postseason push in the fall? Here’s a look at the rest of the favorites to take the AL title in 2021, provided by PointsBet:
