Despite being rocked by a cheating scandal and losing both their manager and general manager as a result, the Houston Astros are still the second choice at +300. The Astros have won the AL championship two out of the last three years.

The Yankees and Astros met in the 2019 ALCS, with Houston taking the series, 4-2.

The Minnesota Twins, winners of the AL Central in 2019, are listed as the third choice at +300 to win the American League in 2020.

Right behind the Twins are the Tampa Bay Rays (+1100) and Oakland Athletics (+1300) — the two 2019 AL Wild Card teams.

After dealing All-Star outfielder Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the MLB odds have the Boston Red Sox as the ninth choice to win the AL at +1900.
