American League Online Betting Tips

One reason to love the American League from a wagering standpoint is the designated hitter. Since 1973, the American League has permitted its teams to send a batter up to the plate to hit for the pitcher and that’s had a twofold effect on the game.

American League starting pitchers tend to be able to stay in games longer when they are going well in a close game because there’s no need to pinch hit for them if a rally is in progress. And for fans of betting the over, who would you rather see coming to the plate with the bases loaded – a slugging designated hitter or a pitcher batting .108 with one RBI?

Look to see which teams are on a roll and which teams are currently struggling. Decipher the teams that are dominant at home and those ballclubs capable of taking their winning show on the road. Knowing this information and making it work for you will lead to improved odds when betting on American League is the goal that you have in mind.

With the designated hitter in the lineup, American League games tend to take longer to complete than those of their National League counterparts but the chances of a rally for a comeback win are much better in the American League.
