The East division of the MLB's American League contains some of the biggest name, including the iconic likes of the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, but of course this doesn’t guarantee that these teams will be among the favorites to win the division in the coming season.

However, one thing that is true is that many of the sides rated favorites for the AL East crown are also among the favorites for the AL League pennant and the World Series, making combined bets on these popular with baseball betting fans. In fact this year, the Yankees, who are usually among the hot favorites, are not among the hot tips for the AL East.

The favorites are in fact the Toronto Blue Jays, thanks in no small part to their acquisition of the brilliant shortstop Jose Reyes. The man has proven to be a run-scoring machine throughout his career, and there is little reason to think things will be any different with the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays have odds of +150, but some may be wary of betting on a team with little prior record of success, especially when the Yankees are behind them at +165 to claim the crown again.

The AL East division is expected to be perhaps the most fiercely contested as, even with an ageing team, the Yankees won’t go down without a fight.

If you don’t have faith in the Blue Jays, and can’t stand the Yankees, you might prefer to play a baseball game like Hot Shot at an online casino like Jackpot city instead, as this game in particular is almost as good as being a baseball player yourself.

You get the roars -- or mutters, depending on how well it’s going -- of the spectators and the sound of the bat hitting the ball every time you score a reel with the gold cup scatter symbol.

Furthermore, you also get the best features of a traditional slot, including a fine $2,000 maximum cash jackpot, and the option of playing using coins as low as $0.25.
