MLB Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Sept. 18

Updated: .September 18, 2017

Cleveland owned the top of the MLB hot list for the past few weeks with its recent 22-game winning streak, while the Los Angeles Dodgers found themselves on the not so hot list for an extended period of time in the midst of a stunning 11-game losing streak. Following this past weekend’s betting results at BetAnySports, both teams are coming off important series wins.

The Indians’ winning streak came to an end on Friday night with a 4-3 loss to Kansas City as -205 home favorites, but they quickly got back to their winning ways with a pair of victories in the next two games to win the extended series 3-1. Cleveland (93-57) will go on the road to Los Angeles for three games against the Angels starting on Tuesday night followed by a three-game weekend series on the road against Seattle.

The Dodgers (96-53) proved that they are still the team to beat in the National League by taking two of three games from the Washington Nationals this past weekend. Los Angeles has now won four of its last five games since that shocking losing run heading into a four-game road series against Philadelphia this week. The Dodgers return home on Friday to kickoff a three-game set against NL West rival San Francisco.

Two more teams you can add to the hot list would be the Boston Red Sox in the AL East and the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Both teams have won seven of their last 10 games, but more importantly, they continue to lead their respective division title race. The Red Sox are 85-64 overall and three games up on the New York Yankees heading into this week’s three-game road series against Baltimore. They will stay on the road this weekend for three games against Cincinnati.

The Cubs have opened a four-game lead over Milwaukee and a six-game lead over St. Louis in their quest to once against win their division. Chicago is 83-66 heading into a quick two-game inter-league clash against Tampa Bay before kicking off a huge four-game road set against the Brewers starting this Thursday night.

Washington (90-59) has already clinched the NL East Division title and Houston (91-58) has won the AL West. Both teams join Cleveland and Los Angeles with berths in the postseason race to the 2017 World Series title.
