SU
It's the record of the games a team has won, lost or pushed by winning or not the game straight up.
UNITS
Units is the number of betting units won or lost by a team after factoring in the juice or vig. It can be used to compare the betting performance of a team without being affected by the player's bankroll.

To calculate Units won/lost on Moneylines you can use the formula below (x = moneyline value):
  • if x > 0, then (x/100)
  • if x < 0, then (-100/x)
AWAY/HOME
It's the record of the games a team has won, lost or pushed by winning or not the game, when at Home and when Away (on the road).

MLB Standings

Our MLB standings page helps you understand which teams have been the most profitable for baseball bettors throughout the season.

It provides all the basic information you would expect from the current MLB standings – home record, away record and so on. However, it also goes a lot deeper.

You can find out the units of profit you would have secured by betting on each team throughout the season. There is also data on how often each team covers the run line, and how often the games featuring each team go over or stay under the total run line.

This MLB league standings page has been created specifically for handicappers. It is designed to give you an edge when betting on baseball. Read on to learn how best to benefit from the information on this MLB season standings page.


MLB Standings Page Navigation

You will see two buttons at the top of the page. The button at the top left of the page allows you to switch between moneyline, run line and totals information. It is automatically set to "Money", as moneyline wagering is very popular among basketball bettors. You can click on it to switch to "Run Line" information or "Total" betting data.

The second button allows you to switch from data covering entire games to information covering the first 5 innings. Betting on the first 5 innings is also popular among MLB fans, which inspired us to add that option to our MLB scores and standings page.


Straight Up Records

The teams are listed in order of the number of wins they have earned over the course of the MLB season. If a team has an 88-52 record, it means it has won 88 games and lost 52, which would put it near the top of the MLB standings 2021.

You can also check out each team’s record at home or on the road. Some teams turn their home stadiums into veritable fortresses, while others perform consistently well away from home. We also provide information about how each team has performed in the first 5 innings. In that case, you will see wins, then losses and finally games that were tied after the first 5. If a team is 72-50-16, it was winning 72 times after the first 5, losing 50 times and tied 16.


Moneyline Betting

Moneyline betting is the simplest form of MLB wagering. It is also generally the most popular way to bet on a baseball game. You just have to predict which team will win.

The online sportsbooks will start by weighing up the relative strengths and weaknesses of each team. They will factor in injuries, home advantage, fatigue, head-to-heads, recent results, and so on. When they have completed their analysis, they release odds on each team. The odds relate to the likelihood of each team winning, and they tell you the potential profit you stand to earn by betting on each team.

For example, let’s say the Atlanta Braves are top of the National League East 2021 MLB standings, having won nine of their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Pirates are languishing near the bottom of the NL Central standings, having endured a poor run of results. In that case, you might expect to see the Braves priced at -210 to beat the Pirates, and the Pirates out at +175.

If the odds start with a minus symbol, it tells you the amount you need to wager to make a $100 profit. You would need to bet $210 on the Braves to win $100. If the odds start with a plus, it shows you the profit you would earn by placing a $100 wager on that team. A $100 bet on the Pirates at +175 would earn you a $175 profit. The larger potential payout on the Pirates highlights their status as the underdogs.


Units

This helpful section tells you the total profit you would have earned or the total loss you would have incurred by betting on a team to win each of its games throughout the season. For example, if a team is 28.48, you would have earned $2,840 by betting $100 on it to win each of its games. If a team is -4.25, you would be down $425 if you had been continually betting $100 on it to win.

Run Line Records

This tells you how often each team has covered the run line during the season. The run line is a 1.5-run handicap given to the supposedly stronger team. There are some alternative run lines, but the standard line is 1.5 runs.

The ATS record for each team shows how often it has covered the run line, and how often it has failed to do so. If a team is 76-61, it has covered 76 times and fallen short 61 times.


Run Line Betting

The run line skews the odds to make things interesting for bettors. If we stick with the hypothetical example above – where MLB National League East standings leader Atlanta is the -210 favorite to beat Pittsburgh, which is struggling in the MLB National League Central standings – we can see the impact of the run line.

In this case, you might expect to see odds of -120 on the Braves to cover the run line. If you bet on them, they would need to win by at least 2 runs for your wager to pay off. However, you would earn a significantly larger profit if they pulled it off.

The alternative would be to bet on the Pirates +1.5 at odds of +100. In that case, the Pirates could win the game or lose by a single run and you would get paid out. That makes it easier, but your profit would be lower.


Difference

This is the average amount of points by which each team has covered the spread during the MLB season. Negative numbers are no-cover in our MLB regular season standings.


Totals Information

This section explains how often games featuring a particular team have gone over the total runs line, stayed under it, or landed exactly on it. If a team is 71-64-4, it means that over has paid off 71 times in that team’s games, under has paid off 64 times, and four games have resulted in a push after the total landed bang on the line. You can divide it into home and away, and filter down to the first 5 innings.


Totals Betting

The online sportsbooks set a total runs line for each game. You simply have to predict whether the cumulative runs scored by both teams will go over that line or stay under it. For example, the total runs line could be set at 9 for an AL East game between the Rays and the Red Sox. If you bet on over, the Rays could win 6-4 or the Red Sox could win 9-1 and you would get paid out either way. It doesn’t matter which team wins – you are only interested in total runs on this American League East game.


Net Action Points

This AP O/U figure tells you the number of net action points in games involving a team that went over or stayed under the total runs line.

MLB Standings FAQs

What are MLB standings?

caret
MLB standings list the various teams in order of their overall win percentages throughout the season. They are generally divided into divisions – MLB NL West standings, MLB NL Central Standings, MLB NL East standings, MLB American East standings, MLB American League Central standings and MLB West standings for the AL – but you can also find MLB overall standings that list every single team. There are also MLB postseason standings after the MLB final standings have been set.

What are the MLB Wild Card standings?

caret
The MLB has reverted to its usual 10-team playoff format, meaning there are just two Wild Card berths up for grabs in the National League and two in the American League. The teams that sit top of the MLB division standings at the end of the season qualify for the League Division Series, while the two teams with the best record in each league go through to the winner-takes-all Wild Card game. The current MLB playoff standings will highlight which teams are in contention, and MLB standings projections 2021 provide insight as to which teams will ultimately win the race.

What is the best team in the MLB right now?

caret
Check out our MLB National League standings and MLB American League standings to see which teams have the best record this season. You should also take a look at our moneyline MLB team standings, as there are lots of less heralded teams that have earned bettors large profits by exceeding expectations.

When are MLB baseball standings published?

caret
You will often see MLB spring training standings and MLB preseason standings, which give you an idea of what sort of shape each team is in ahead of the new season. The standings – MLB east standings, MLB central standings and MLB west standings for each league – will be issued as soon as the season begins and updated on a continual basis, so you can see MLB standings today at any time.
