    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.
