MLB Standings & ATS Rankings

Our MLB standings and ATS rankings can ensure that you have all of the most up-to-date information available so you can place more well-informed baseball bets on all of your favorite teams throughout the entire season.


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 how many 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 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 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 baseball 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.

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 means they won 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 betting odds for 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.

Example: Let’s say the Atlanta Braves are top of the National League East MLB standings, having won nine of their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Brewers 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 win and the Brewers 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.

However, 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 Brewers at +175 would earn you a $175 profit. The larger potential payout on the Brewers highlights their status as the underdogs.


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.

Example: Hypothetically, if the Dodgers are 28.48, you would have earned $2,840 by betting $100 on them to win each of their games. If the San Francisco Giants are -4.25, you would be down $425 if you had been continually betting $100 on them 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.

Example: If we look at the Oakland Athletics and their performance in terms of the run line records for a hypothetical previous season, their ATS (Against The Spread) record could be stated as 85-77. This means that this AL Western Division team covered the standard 1.5-run handicap 85 times during the season but fell short of covering this spread in 77 games.

Run Line Betting

The run line skews the odds to make things interesting for sports bettors. If we stick with the hypothetical example above — where MLB National League East standings leader Atlanta is the -210 favorite to beat Milwaukee, 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 Brewers +1.5 at odds of +100. In that case, the Brewers 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.


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.

With the MLB regular season standings being heavily influenced by the amount of points each team has covered the spread by, understanding the average amount of points by which a team has covered or not covered can be essential in crafting an effective betting strategy.

The average amount of points a team covers or not covers can significantly impact their placement on the 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 betting 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.

Example: The total runs line could be set at 9 for an AL Eastern Division game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox. If you bet on over, the Tampa Bay 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.

Example: Suppose the total runs betting line for a game between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers was set at 10. Because of old team rivalries, both teams played fiercer than usual and the final result of the match was White Sox 6 and the Tigers 5. This means the total runs would be 11, thus exceeding the pre-set total runs line.

In this case, the net action point would be +1 for this game, as the total runs scored went over the predicted total by 1. Conversely, if the total runs scored in the game were less than the predicted line, let’s say 9, then the net action point would be -1.

MLB Standings: Frequently Asked Questions

What does ATS mean in sports?

In MLB sports betting, ATS stands for “against the spread.” It’s a betting term used in baseball to indicate a team’s performance in relation to the point spread. If a team has a positive ATS record, it means they have performed better than expected in terms of the point spread.

How are ATS records determined?

ATS records in sports betting are determined by comparing a team’s performance against the point spread. If a team “covers” the spread by winning or losing by less than the spread, it contributes to their ATS record. Conversely, failing to cover results in a negative impact on the ATS record.

Has a team with a losing record ever won the World Series?

Yes, teams with a losing ATS record have won the World Series. For instance, the 1987 Minnesota Twins and the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals, both with losing road records, won the World Series despite their regular season shortcomings.

Do underdogs cover the spread?

Yes, underdogs cover the spread when they perform better than expected, either by winning the game outright or by losing by less than the point spread. This results in underdogs having a positive impact on their ATS record when they cover the spread.

What happens if a team doesn’t cover the spread?

If a team doesn’t cover the spread, it means they either lose the game by more points than the spread or win by fewer points than the spread. In either case, this results in a negative impact on their ATS record in sports betting.
