Los Angeles Angels

Los Angeles Dodgers
11/2
Washington Nationals
6/1
Baltimore Orioles
7/1
Oakland Athletics
7/1
Detroit Tigers
8/1
St. Louis Cardinals

Obviously, the Halos are also the favorites to win the league and division pennants.  They're 5/2 favorites for the league title, while coming in at 1/2 odds of taking the division.

The Vegas sports books have also put Mike Trout into the top spot giving him 1/2 odds of winning his first A.L. MVP, followed by Robinson Cano, Jose Abreu, Felix Hernandez, and Victor Martinez.
