MLB League Pennants Odds and Lines

The Major League Baseball regular season is composed of 162 games played during the year against the 30 teams in the league.

Since 1903, MLB has been divided into two leagues, the American League (AL) and the National League (NL). Both leagues signed a national agreement in 1903 to be combined under the MLB banner and start a championship title game known as the World Series, which has the best team of the AL face the best team from the NL.

While MLB has changed a lot over the years, with more teams and games being played now than back in 1903, it has still been a pastime sport that all Americans love and enjoy to this day.

American League

The AL has 15 teams divided into three divisions, each having five teams in those divisions. The three divisions in the AL are the East, Central, and West divisions.

The New York Yankees have won the most AL Pennants in history out of all the AL teams with 40.

Only five teams have the chance to make it to the MLB playoffs and an AL Pennant after the regular season is completed.

One team from each division with the best record will make the MLB playoffs, while two additional teams that have the best record but didn’t win their division will play against each other in a one-game elimination match in the MLB playoffs.

The winner of the AL playoff bracket will win the AL Pennant and have a spot in the World Series.

National League

The NL has 15 teams divided into three divisions, each having five teams in those divisions. The three divisions in the NL are the East, Central, and West divisions.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won the most NL Pennants in history out of all the NL teams with 24. Only five teams have the chance to make it to the MLB playoffs and an NL Pennant after the regular season is completed.

One team from each division with the best record will make the MLB playoffs, while two additional teams that have the best record but didn’t win their division will play against each other in a one-game elimination match in the MLB playoffs.

The winner of the AL playoff bracket will win the NL Pennant and have a spot in the World Series.

MLB World Series

Baseball’s championship game, the World Series, puts the best of the AL against the best of the NL in a best-out-of-seven series.

When the World Series first began in 1903, the World Series was a best out of nine series between the best AL and NL teams.

The format would go to seven in 1905; the two teams set to play the 1904 World Series never played due to the NL champion New York Giants’ refusal to play the game.

The World Series would go back to a best-out-of-nine format for three years from 1919 to 1921 before returning to the best-out-of-seven format in 1922.

MLB All-Star Game

MLB baseball has what is known as the All-Star game midway through the baseball season.

The game puts the best players from AL teams against the best players from teams in the NL in a one-game matchup.

The game was thought to have lost its luster during the 2000s, which prompted MLB Commissioner Bud Selig to raise the stakes for the game.

Starting in 2003, the winning league of the All-Star game would receive home-field advantage for the World Series, a move that was seen to help bring a competitive spirit back to the All-Star game.

How to Bet on the MLB League Pennant Odds

When you bet on MLB pennant odds, you are betting on which team will win their respective championship game.

Each league, the AL and NL, has its own pennant trophy for the champion of their league championship game. MLB odds usually have the previous season’s champion as the favorite, while the teams are given MLB futures odds based on how they finished in the previous season.

While the previous year’s pennant champion usually gets the favorite nod, it’s usually hard for a team to win back-to-back pennants in the current era of MLB.

Since the MLB playoff format started in 1969, there have only been six times in the National League and eight times in the American League that a team has won back-to-back pennants in their league.

The New York Yankees are the only team to have won the AL Pennant four years in a row, winning it from 1998 to 2001.

So while those MLB lines might show gamblers that a previous year’s winner is a favorite, the previous winner doesn’t usually win the pennant the following year.

So gamblers will need to look closer at the teams in the league to see who their MLB bet should be on when it comes to MLB futures odds on the MLB League Pennants.

MLB League Pennants before Season

Here are some tips to look at with MLB odds on teams to win their league’s pennant before the season starts:

  • Is there a team that has improved their players to make a run for their league’s pennant?
  • Is there a team that had a chance in last year’s pennant game, only to come up short?
  • Did the winner from last year keep all the same players and coaches to help their chances of repeating a pennant run?
  • Did teams in the league improve their rosters in an attempt to stop last year’s pennant winner from winning it again?
  • Are there any standout players called up or signed by a team that can help them win their league’s pennant?
  • Have any pre-season trades been made that could affect a team’s chances of winning the pennant?

MLB futures odds on which team will win their league’s pennant will move during the MLB regular season and into the playoffs.

While all teams start with plus odds, those MLB odds will go down on the favorite team as they get more wins through the season.

While early betting on MLB futures odds can give gamblers better MLB lines on teams that oddsmakers don’t see as winners, it can also be risky to bet early due to not knowing how the team will play before the season starts.

For gamblers that wish to wait before betting on MLB futures odds, there can be some different things to look at depending on how long one has waited before getting into an MLB bet on the Pennant winner.

While the team with the most wins will be the favorite as the season progresses, the MLB futures odds move toward the team in the playoffs that’s got the best chance of winning the pennant during the MLB playoffs.

MLB League Pennants After Season

Here are some tips for gamblers getting in late on the MLB futures odds on the league pennant winner:

  • Are there any injured players that will be out for an extended time?
  • Has the team made any trades before the trade deadline in hopes of making a push for the pennant?
  • Is there a team getting on a hot streak or cold streak that could affect their chances at the league pennant?
  • Does the team have a solid or weak bullpen?
  • Does the team have a batter or batters that are getting hot or cold as the season progresses?

These are just some of the critical things to look at before making a wager on the MLB futures odds on the league pennant. These tips can help the gambler have a better chance of winning an MLB bet.
