The Houston Astros are the Odds On Favorite To Win The American League #BangTheCans #ForTheH

It seems like all of those brainiacs in Vegas are smoking on that Astros pack along with me. It is crazy to me that even with the Tampa Bay Rays finishing the season with 100 wins and convingly whooping everyone’s ass that Vegas is still this high on Houston.

Now granted there is an ultra slim margin separating these two teams. The Astros open up with +250 odds to win the American League Pennant, and the Rays have their odds set at +275. So in all reality here we are talking about a difference of a few runs being scored.

The obvious answer to the poll here is yes. The Astros are a team with way to much talent and playoff experience to not make a deep run. I mean just look to last season, the team finished barely under .500 and was still only one game away from going back to the fucking dance.

The Rays are the new darlings in the conversation but we cannot forget about Kevin Cash and his bonehead moves. Pulling your number 1 starter in a Game 7 that he was absolutely SHOVING in?? I just can’t get behind the Rays with that still lingering in my brain.

This team is great, Bregman is back and bombing balls, Altuve looks like a MVP again, Yordan Alvarez punishes baseballs, and oh yea, Yuli Gurriel won the batting title this season.

For anyone already looking passed the Astros I suggest you stop, because we are here and we aren’t going quietly into the night.
