Some Tuesday MLB Helpful Information

Five teams that have dramatically improved their MLB futures odds

We’re over 40 games into the MLB season and many teams have dramatically improved their futures odds since the beginning of the 2013 campaign.

Here are five clubs with the most improved odds:

Texas Rangers – Opened: 20/1, Now: 8/1

The Rangers were expected to take a step back in 2013 after losing slugger Josh Hamilton, but Texas hasn’t missed a beat, building a comfortable 6.5-game cushion over the Oakland A’s in the AL West heading into action Monday.

St. Louis Cardinals – Opened: 16/1, Now: 10/1

The Cardinals pitching staff continues to be the envy of the NL Central as its 3.18 team ERA is tops in the bigs.

New York Yankees – Opened: 25/1, Now: 12/1

Early injuries to Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira had oddsmakers skeptical about New York’s chances this season. But Robinson Cano’s big bat and surprise contributions from fill-ins Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay have the Bronx Bombers sitting on top of the AL East.

Boston Red Sox – Opened: 30/1, Now: 12/1

Boston’s pitching staff was historically bad last season, but Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz have rebounded nicely and are back to dominating opposing hitters. Slugger David Ortiz is batting .364 since returning from an Achilles injury and continues to be a force in the middle of the order.

Cleveland Indians – Opened: 60/1, Now: 25/1

The Indians have won 18 of their last 22 contests to take control of the AL Central. The Tribe’s offense is averaging just over five runs per game. Only the Detroit Tigers have a more potent offense.

Jim Feist's FREE MLB Play for Tuesday, May 21, 2013

(921) OAKLAND ATHLETICS VS (922) TEXAS RANGERS

Take: UNDER THE TOTAL.

Oakland heads to Texas and the under is 5-0 in the Athletics last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter. They aren't facing an ordinary righty here, but ace Yu Darvish (7-1, 2.97 ERA), who has struck out 86 in 60+ innings and only 37 hits! The under is 7-1 in the Rangers last 8 home games. The Oakland offense has been struggling, on an 8-3 run under the total, and when these division rivals meet the under is 10-4-1 in the last 15 meetings. Play the A's/Rangers under the total.
