    Playoff Probabilities (07/01/15)

    MLB Playoff Probabilities – Does your team still have a chance to make the playoffs?



    As the MLB season quickly approaches the midway point, does your team still have a chance to make the playoffs?

    A lot can happen in the second half of the season but as the MLB All-Star Game approaches, the true contenders are beginning to separate from the pack.

    Highlights:

    The Cardinals are the most likely team to reach the postseason (99.6 percent). St. Louis enjoys the largest division lead in baseball (8 games) but the Redbirds are not the most likely World Series champions.

    That honor belongs to the Dodgers. Los Angeles is 33.8 percent likely to reach the World Series and has a 22.7 percent chance to win it all for the first time since 1988.

    The Pirates have seen their playoff odds increase the most in the last month. In May, Pittsburgh had a 39.7 percent chance to reach the postseason. After going 17-9 in June the Pirates are now 74.0 percent likely to play past the 162nd game of the season.

    Other big gainers: Toronto +23.3 percent, Baltimore +19.5 percent, Texas +12.9 percent and New York Yankees +11.8 percent.

    Detroit entered June battling Kansas City for the AL Central lead but the Tigers now find themselves six games back of the Royals and 1.5 games out of the Wild Card. Detroit's playoff probability has decreased 27.8 percent, the most of any team.

    Other big losers: Seattle -26.8 percent, San Diego -16.0 percent, Boston -10.7 percent and New York Mets -10.3 percent.

    Only six teams have greater than a 1-in-20 chance of winning the World Series.

    The Cardinals (7/1), Nationals (7/1) and Dodgers (8/1) all have value to win the World Series. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.

    Congratulations Philadelphia, you are the only team that has a zero percent chance of making the playoffs. There are nine other teams with less than a five percent chance of playing late into October and will likely join the Phillies as officially eliminated from contention.

    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.
