According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Red Sox and Yankees are both +200 on the money line, respectively, to win the American League East this season. The Rays aren't far behind at +225, while the Blue Jays are +900 and the Orioles have the longest odds to win the division at +1200.

Boston won the AL East a year ago with a 97-65 record while Tampa Bay finished second at 92-71. The Orioles and Yankees both won 85 games, while the Blue Jays finished dead last with a record of 74-88 despite some believing they were the favorites after making several offseason moves.

The Yankees actually have better odds to win the World Series than the Red Sox. New York is 10/1, while Boston is 12/1 and Tampa Bay is 16/1. Toronto is a 28/1 long shot while Baltimore has even worst odds at 40/1. The Yankees also have the best odds in the division to win the AL pennant at 5/1, while the Red Sox are 6/1 and the Rays are 15/2. The Blue Jays are also 16/1 while the Orioles are 20/1.

The Yankees made the biggest splash in free agency by signing Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury and international pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. Derek Jeter also announced that this season will be his last.
