With less than two weeks to go before opening day, many teams are still struggling to settle their rosters. The American League is wide open with a couple of key contenders to keep an eye on, as well as some teams that have impressed early on. Here is a look at some of the early AL matchups for this week.

Cleveland Indians @ Kansas City Royals

Monday, 4:05 PM ET

The Royals have been the best team from the American League this spring, and will look to continue their hot streak when they take on Cleveland Monday. Billy Butler has hit .333 this online sports betting spring with a couple of home runs and 13 RBI to lead a Kansas City team that is looking for a resurgence this year. Jeff Francis looked good in his third appearance last Thursday, allowing just one run over five innings in a 9-1 win over the Seattle Mariners. Francis could get the start on Monday. The Indians haven't been nearly as hot as the Royals, with just seven wins through their first 17 games, but could get a boost from the returning Grady Sizemore.

New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays

Monday, 7:05 PM ET

These AL East division rivals pick up the intensity regardless of when they play, and will get a good test of where they are at when they meet Monday. Both teams are below the .500 mark so far this spring training, but that won't matter once the regular season gets underway are both are among the sports betting bonus favorites to represent in this year's World Series. The Yankees are still looking to complete their starting pitching rotation, and that will make the difference as New York has more to play for at this point.

Chicago White Sox @ Seattle Mariners

Tuesday, 4:05 PM ET

One of the worst teams from the AL East so far this spring training will take on one of the best, when the White Sox look to break out of their funk against Seattle. The Mariners have gotten what they expected from Chone Figgins so far this year after he struggled in his first season with the team, and was batting .357 heading into this past weekend. Figgins will help Seattle keep Chicago from warming up with another win, as they move one step closer to the regular season on Tuesday.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Philadelphia Phillies @ Toronto Blue Jays

Tuesday, 1:05 PM ET

The Blue Jays still have issues to sort out in their outfield, but with Juan Rivera picking up his play in right field it is looking more and more likely that he will be the opening day starter alongside Travis Snider and Raijai Davis. Toronto still has to figure out its starting rotation past ace Ricky Romero, and should get a good test against the Phillies. Philadelphia's lineup is already set and this will be nothing more than another tuneup for one of the top projected MLB betting contenders from the NL.
