    Playoff Odds (09/22/14)

    By John Ewing, Director of Research and Analytics, @johnewing
    Odds for each MLB team to reach the playoffs heading into the last week of the regular season. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    This is the week when baseball's still unresolved playoff races will finally be resolved. Who's in, who's out? The final days of September will decide which teams join the Angels, Dodgers, Orioles, Nationals, and Cardinals in the postseason.

    The Tigers are near locks (>99%) to make the playoffs with a 1.5 game lead over Kansas City in the AL Central. Kansas City has a 7 percent chance of eclipsing Detroit for the division title but the Royals are 68.5 percent likely to reach the postseason for the first time in 25 years.

    San Francisco is hoping to avoid the Wild Card but are currently trailing the LA Dodgers by 4.5 games. The Giants only have a 4 percent chance of winning the NL West, but are 98.8 percent likely to play in October.

    The most interesting battle is for the Wild Cards in the American League. Trying to catch Oakland and Kansas City is Seattle (1.5 games back), Cleveland (3.5 games back) and the New York Yankees (4.5 games back) vying for the final spot. The Mariners are the best bet to catch the Athletics and Royals.

    Will the Mariners make the playoffs?
    Yes: +500
    No: -800

    With a 33.6 percent chance of making the playoffs, there is value (only need 16.7 percent confidence in order to place a wager at 5/1) in betting Seattle to reach the postseason.

    The Brewers were 65 percent likely to make the playoffs on August 1st, but now have just an 11 percent chance to continue playing after the regular season trailing Pittsburgh and San Francisco by 4.5 games in the Wild Card.

    The Predictalator

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
