Last season, the Houston Astros hoisted the AL Pennant and advanced to the World Series, defeating the New York Yankees 4-0 in the American League Championship Series. It was a dominant season for the Astros, easily winning the AL West by 16 games over the second-place Seattle Mariners. They finished with a 106-56 record, the best record in the American League. Before defeating the Yankees, they took down the Mariners 3-0 in the American League Divisional Series. Scroll down for live odds and best bets!
Below, you can find the latest odds to win the 2023 AL Pennant from our friends at BetMGM (updated Sept. 5):
*Mariners (+600, DraftKings): I still am high on Seattle this season, even if they have been pretty middle of the road in the standings. They didn't do much at the deadline to improve, but they have a team that is set up for success in October. They have four starting pitchers with an xERA below 4.00, and also have one of the best bullpens in the league in terms of xFIP. If they can get the offense going, I really like this team going forward as a sleeper pick.
*I gave you guys the Mariners back in July for almost 20/1 to win the AL, and I hope you tailed. They are still my favorite bet to come out of the AL.
Throughout the entire MLB season, we are going to have you covered on the latest odds and predictions for who is going to win the 2023 AL Pennant. Obviously, as teams start to play and as we get deeper into the summer months, teams change and so do the lines at the sportsbooks. When that happens, you'll be able to come back to this page to get our latest predictions throughout the season, as we will keep it updated every so often with the best bets and value picks that you will need to cash in at the end of the year.
Betting MLB Pennant futures are tough, and it isn't easy to predict a winner of each league to meet in the World Series. The good news is that you'll have all the experts here at BetQL to give you the advantage you need throughout the season to make sure you have a nice future on who will win the 2023 AL and NL Pennant at maximum value.

Not only will we have Pennant picks from all of your favorite experts and personalities all season long, but we of course will have MLB picks every day from the BetQL model to keep us rolling in the green all summer long, and I don't mean just the grass outside. The model ranks every MLB bet on a "star scale", which tells you the most valuable bets at the current lines every single day of the 2023 MLB season up to and including the World Series. The star ratings are ranked from 1-star to 5-star in terms of how valuable the bet is, with 1-star being a no-bet and 5-star being the most valuable bet that you should jump on right away before it moves.
It would take days for a human to handicap every side, total, and prop for every game during a day. Instead, our model is able to simulate every game 10,000 times and give you the most likely outcome for each bet. It's amazing what technology can do nowadays, and with the BetQL model getting better and better every season by adapting and learning, the books don't have a prayer.
You may be asking "What is a Pennant future, and how can I bet on it?" Well, you came to the right place. First of all, it's important to understand just what you are putting your hard-earned money on. A Pennant future bet is basically picking who will win the AL and NL in 2023 and represent their league in the World Series. Keep in mind, the money you bet on these will not be paid out until a Pennant winner is crowned, so it will be tied up all season.
Example: You log on to DraftKings Sportsbook and go to the MLB Pennant futures tab. You will see every team in baseball there along with their odds to win the 2023 AL and NL Pennant. You consult this page and find that you really like a best bet on the Cardinals to win the NL Pennant at +1000. Placing a wager on that would net you a huge profit if they win the National League, but that money will be tied up there until a winner is decided.
You can place these bets at any sportsbook of your choosing, but I recommend using whatever book gives you the best number. If one book is offering +800, while the other is offering +1000 and you want to bet it, always take the +1000.
