  • Tracking MLB division odds in the AL East, AL Central, and AL West in 2022.
  • The New York Yankees have won the AL East.
  • The Cleveland Guardians have won the AL Central.
  • The Houston Astros have won the AL West.

In 2022, the expanded postseason format sees the winner of each division plus three Wild Card teams from each league advance to the postseason. With an extra team from each league added, even small movements in the standings throughout the regular season can mean an entirely different crop of teams playing deep into October.

Tracking MLB division odds is a favorite pastime of baseball fans throughout the season, but it really heats up once the All-Star break is out of the way and we begin to close in on the playoffs.

As you look through daily odds at the online sportsbook, below you’ll find the final weekly updated division records, handles, and odds for the AL East, AL Central, and AL West for the regular season (through October 5).

The Yankees dominated over the first half of the 2022 season, and thank goodness for that because they really fell off for a while in the second half. Regardless, they managed to hold on and win the division.
