Bovada has updated MLB odds, for everything from World Series winner to MVP award. The Angels haven't fallen TOO out of favor with the sharps in Vegas, but the trade deadline has a few other clubs climbing up the favorites pool.

Oakland Athletics                      75/1

Seattle Mariners                       40/1

Basically, all the teams you'd expect at the top are at the top, above the recently-struggling Angels. The AL West odds are also as to be expected, going off of how the Angels are playing in comparison to Houston.


Odds to win the AL West

Houston Astros                          4/9

Los Angeles Angels                  3/2

Texas Rangers                            20/1

Seattle Mariners                       66/1

Oakland Athletics                     100/1

The team's chances, according to Bovada, aren't bad, but aren't amazing, either. Of course, what do they know?! This team has beaten the odds before and...they'll...well, I don't know. I'm just trying to sell myself on the Halos chances right now. It's hard.

You know who has damn good odds to do lots of cool stuff? Mike Trout. Duh. You don't have to be a Vegas sharp to see these coming.

Odds to win AL MVP

Mike Trout                     1/2

Any Other Player          3/2

LOL....Mike Trout vs. the field.

Odds to lead MLB in home runs

Mike Trout                      3/2

Albert Pujols 3/1

Bryce Harper 5/1

Nelson Cruz 6/1

Mark Teixeira 7/1

J.D. Martinez 10/1

Todd Frazier 12/1

Chris Davis 16/1

Josh Donaldson 16/1

Nolan Arenado 25/1

Alex Rodriguez 33/1

Jose Bautista 50/1

Again, they like Mike Trout. But then again, everybody does. Albert Pujols gets some love with a 3/1 shot at taking the MLB homer crown, but I think that's a little overboard.
