If you're playing in a not-for-profit season-long baseball pool with points based on the posted odds, take the White Sox +1.6 against the Cubs in a rain-out make-up game.
Including the all-star game, the American League (AL) is 140-112 in 2009 interleague games or 55.6% winners. I am +14.5 points in toy boy Archibald's interleague baseball pool with points based on posted odds. You can't go wrong backing the AL all the way over the course of an entire season no matter who's pitching.
2009 is the 6th consecutive year for AL teams to take bragging rights in inter-league contests.
AL dominance is particularly underestimated by oddsmakers in games where an NL team is hosting an AL visitor – e.g., tonight's battle of Chicago.
