AL West: A whacky division of polar over/under records

The American League West has been a tough division for MLB totals bettors to wrangle this year.

It boasts the top two over plays in the majors, with the Los Angeles Angels (42-30-1 over/under) and Oakland Athletics (40-34-1 over/under) consistently topping totals, and is also home to the best under bet in the bigs, the Texas Rangers, who have been kind to under bettors with a 26-43-4 over/under mark.

How about when these over teams collide with the low-scoring Rangers?

Los Angeles and Texas have played each other six times this season, combing for an over/under mark of 5-1. The A’s and Rangers, who are currently wrapping a four-game set in Arlington, have produced a break-even 4-4-1 over/under count in their first nine head-to-head contests this season.

In fact, Texas is leaning more to the over against divisional foes, posting a 15-14-3 over/under record against AL West opponents. Oakland is 22-12-1 over/under versus clubs for the AL West and L.A. is 20-12 over/under during divisional play.

Stats as of June 21, 2013.
