    Playoff Probabilities (05/26/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    MLB Playoff Probabilities – How have each team's chances to reach the postseason changed?



    A lot can happen over the course of a 162 games. While we are still months away from October, with more than a quarter of the games in the books, we can get a decent idea of what the postseason picture looks like.

    For some teams, their playoff outlook has already changed dramatically.

    Top Storylines:

    The Dodgers are the most likely playoff team. Los Angeles reaches the postseason 98 percent of the time in our simulations. LA is one of nine teams to have a positive double-digit increase in their projected playoff probability.

    Houston, we don't have a problem. The Astros rebuilding plan has come together quicker than most expected. The ‘Stros have a 5.5 game lead in the AL West and the team's playoff odds have increased by more than 1,500 percent.

    Boston's season has been maddening. The Red Sox have only won three games in a row once. The team started the season 7-3 but has since gone 14-21. The Red Sox were one of the favorites to win the American League but now a playoff berth is a stretch.

    It ain't over till the fat lady sings. No team has been eliminated from the playoffs. There is still a chance even for the Phillies (0.1 percent), the worst team in baseball.

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
