The Angels’ futures odds to win the AL are set at +475, which are fourth-best on the list.

Detroit (53-38) is the second-favorite to win the AL this season at +290 and it will start the second half with a 6.5-game lead over Kansas City (48-46) in the AL Central. This is the largest lead in any of the division title races. Baltimore (52-42) has a four-game edge over Toronto (49-47) in the AL East and VietBet has listed the Orioles as +900 fourth-favorites to win the AL.

The top favorite to win the National League Pennant is the Los Angeles Dodgers at +270. They are 54-43 on the year and leading San Francisco (52-43) by a game in the NL West race. The Giants are fourth on the futures list to win the NL Pennant at +600.

Washington is the second favorite to win the NL at +415, but heading into this Friday’s weekend series against Milwaukee, the Nationals (51-42) are tied with Atlanta (52-43) for the lead in the NL East.

The Brewers (53-43) have been the top team in the NL Central throughout the entire first half, but their lead over St. Louis is down to just one game. The Cardinals (52-44) have been listed as +465 third-favorites to win the NL Pennant this year. Cincinnati (51-44) is sitting just a game and a half off the division lead and Pittsburgh (49-46) is 3.5 games back in what is easily the tightest division race in the Majors.
