MLB Odds: Last Spot in the NL Wildcard Race Up for Grabs

It’s hard to believe that in the last week of the MLB’s regular season, two of three teams in the National League will lose their grips on a postseason berth. The Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers are all vying for one spot: the final wildcard position in the NL.

At press time, the Rockies have a slim 1.5 game lead over the Brew Crew, and also lead the Cards by 2.5 games. None of the three teams have played well enough to separate themselves from the pack. Over the last 10 games, Colorado and St. Louis are 4-6, and Milwaukee is 5-5. Instead of a race, you could call this battle a crawl.

With a 1.5-game lead, the Rockies have the edge. In their final five games of the season, they’ll finish their series with the Miami Marlins and face the unstable Los Angeles Dodgers, who may look to rest players in the final series of the season. The Cards, on the other hand, are tasked with the Chicago Cubs before heading home to take on, none other than, the Brewers. Before visiting St. Louis, the Brewers will face the woeful Cincinnati Reds. Breaking down the respective schedules tells us that the Rockies have the easiest road to a playoff berth. They’re currently +4000 to win the World Series.

MLB Odds: NL Wildcard Up in the Air

Looking for a playoff atmosphere before the playoffs? Look no further than the battle between the Colorado Rockies, St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers, who each have their sights set on the final playoff spot in the NL. While the Rockies have a 1.5 and 2.5 game lead over Milwaukee and St. Louis respectively, they haven’t been playing great baseball of late, going 4-6 in their last 10 games.

The final series of the season matches the Brewers against the Cardinals in St. Louis. If Colorado continues to falter, the winner of that three-game set could capture the final wildcard spot, making for a thrilling finish to the regular season.
