Kansas City Royals MLB Betting Roundup - August 13
Red-hot Kansas City’s eight-game winning streak came to an end on Tuesday night in an 11-3 loss to Oakland as a +132 home underdog on VietBet’s closing betting odds, but the Royals (64-54) run of 11 victories in their last 13 games has them a half-game ahead of Detroit in the AL Central race. The Tigers have lost their last four games to fall to 63-54 on the year.

Baltimore is starting to create some distance in the AL East race with a 6.5-game lead over Toronto and a seven game lead over New York. Tuesday night’s matchup between the Orioles (68-50) and the Yankees (61-57) was postponed, but the fading Blue Jays (63-58) still lost some ground with a 6-3 loss to Seattle as +110 road underdogs. They are now just 3-7 in their last 10 games.

It still a two-team race in the AL West between Oakland and Los Angeles, but the gap has widened to 3.5 games with the Athletics (73-46) going 6-4 in their last 10 games as opposed to a 4-6 mark for the Angels (69-49). Oakland remains the favorite to win the AL Pennant on VietBet’s MLB futures with odds listed at +220.

The gap in the NL East Division race widened with Washington’s 7-1 victory over New York on Tuesday night as a -140 road favorite coupled with Atlanta’s 4-2 loss to the Dodgers as a -124 favorite at home. The Nationals (64-53) are now five games ahead of the struggling Braves (60-59) and six games ahead of Miami (59-60).

Pittsburgh has closed the gap in the NL Central with Milwaukee (66-54) to just a game and a half with back-to-back victories over Detroit to improve to 64-55 on the year. St. Louis (62-56) fell three games off the pace by losing its last two games to the Marlins as a road favorite on VietBet’s closing moneyline and Cincinnati is 5.5 games back at 60-59.
