MLB Weekly Roundup- April 30
The first month of the new MLB season comes to a close and with most teams having at least 25 games in the books we now have a pretty good feel for which ones look like long-term contenders and which ones are just along for the ride.
The biggest surprise out of the gate has been the Milwaukee Brewers, who are off to a blistering 20-7 start through this past Tuesday night’s games. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games and already 6.5 games ahead of St. Louis in the NL Central title race. The Brewers have the second-best team ERA (2.59) in the National League and they are ranked fifth in the NL in hitting with a .255 team batting average.
BetAnySports’ MLB betting odds
Another solid bet in the NL this season with BetAnySports’ MLB betting odds has been the Atlanta Braves. They are 2.5 games ahead of the New York Mets in the NL East with a record of 17-8. They have posted the best team ERA in the NL (2.32) in the opening month of the season and the total has stayed UNDER in 15 of their first 25 games.
The tightest race in the NL is out west with San Francisco (16-11) holding a half game lead over Colorado and a game and a half lead over Los Angeles. The Dodgers opened the season as heavy favorites to win this division and the top favorites to win the NL Pennant on BetAnySports’ futures board.

All three division races in the American League remain tight starting in the AL East. Just 4.5 games separate first from fifth in this division with the New York Yankees (15-11) holding a two-game lead over Baltimore at the top. The defending champion Red Sox are 13-14 and 2.5 games off the pace.
Detroit was not only a heavy favorite to win the AL Central; BetAnySports had the Tigers favored to win the AL Pennant this season. So far so good with a 13-9 start that has them a game and a half ahead of Minnesota and Kansas City. If you are looking for another solid team to wager on when it comes to totals, take a closer look at the Twins. The total has gone OVER in 18 of their first 23 games.
Oakland has picked up where it left off last season with a 17-10 start that has the Athletics two games ahead of Texas in the AL West. Over the past 10 games none of the five teams in this division has posted a record better than .500.
