The Oakland A's are a game behind the Texas Rangers in the AL West with 24 games to play. Oakland isn't yet assured a trip to the playoffs, but Las Vegas betting website Bovada.lv is giving them good odds down the stretch.

The A's have 6/1 odds to win the AL pennant, which is fourth behind the Detroit Tigers, the Boston Red Sox, and the AL West rival Rangers. While their odds to win the World Series aren't as high -- at 12/1 -- Oakland still sits fourth in the AL behind those three aforementioned teams and eighth among all MLB teams.

The A's have a healthy lead in the Wild Card race, where they are currently 2.5 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays for the top Wild Card spot and five games ahead of the Yankees in the race to secure a playoff berth.
