MLB Playoff Odds
Fivethirtyeight’s MLB playoff odds have been with us for a long time. They keep you updated as to the situation regarding the teams in the playoffs and that of the final two teams in each league.
Each team has been rated based on its record, remaining schedule, odds of winning the World Series, and of course the final four games at the end of the season. Since the current playoffs are over, here is what Fivethirtyeight said about the teams: the Dodgers have had an impressive season, coming out of nowhere to win the NL West, while the Red Sox were looking to turn things around in a hurry. However, the Yankees, having had such a poor year by their standards, were placed in their place by the Red Sox.
The final standings say that it will take some good fortune and great play to knock the winner out of the postseason. For instance, the Phillies have a better record against the teams that are in the wild card, but still need the Cubs to lose against the White Sox. Therefore, they aren’t in the playoff yet.
The Dodgers have the best odds in the West, second to the Giants, while the Red Sox is third. They are also the favorites in their division with the Cardinals, with the Cubs not far behind. The Yankees are in the second spot, with the Tigers, and the Tigers again behind them.
As for the games in the playoffs, the Yankees, Dodgers, and Cardinals are all favorites against the Orioles, with the A’s, White Sox, and Brewers last in the playoff pecking order. The bottom line is that they need to play much better than they did in the regular season.
