Betting On American League Central Online

It took them a while to get it going but the AL Central Division is now as good as any division in baseball. The Kansas City Royals represented the American League in both the 2014 and 2015 World Series, winning the Fall Classic in 2015, the first victory by an American League Central club since the Chicago White Sox won the 2005 World Series. The Detroit Tigers are the only other American League Central team to appear in the World Series since the 1994 divisional realignment, losing to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2006 and the San Francisco Giants in 2012. [+]

The American League Central played weaker sister to the American League East and West Divisions until recent years, and it was a long drought. When the Detroit Tigers earned the American League wildcard playoff position in 2006, it marked the first time that two American League Central teams qualified for post-season play in the same season. 

American League Central Sports Betting Odds

When the Kansas City Royals won the 2015 World Series, it not only ended a 30-year championship drought for the Royals, but gave the AL Central Division a unique distinction. [+]

It meant that they were the only one of Major League Baseball’s six divisions in which each of its teams could boast that they’d all won at least two World Series titles. That being said, it’s been some time since most of them have won a World Series.

The Chicago White Sox took their most recent title in 2005, but that’s recent compared to the other three American League Central teams. The Minnesota Twins last won the World Series in 1991, while the Detroit Tigers were World Series champions in 1984. And pity the Cleveland Indians, whose most recent World Series title was claimed in 1948.
