    Will your favorite baseball team make the playoffs? Updated odds for all 30 MLB teams.



    As MLB teams make their playoff push in the final month of the season, we look at the odds for each club to reach the postseason.

    Five teams are all but locks to play meaningful ball in October: LA Angels, Baltimore, LA Dodgers, Washington and St. Louis are all greater than 99 percent likely to reach the postseason. Of those five teams, only the Dodgers and Cardinals were in the playoffs last season.

    The last month of baseball has been wild as some teams have played their way in and out of the postseason.

    On August 1st Kansas City was four games back in the AL Central. The Royals now have a one game lead over the Tigers. Kansas City has used a 23-11 run to improve the clubs playoff chances by 54.7 percent.

    In contrast Milwaukee is collapsing. After leading the NL Central at the beginning of August, the Brewers have gone 13-21 falling six games behind the Cardinals and Pirates in the division. In the last 13 games, Milwaukee starters are 1-11 with a 6.95 ERA. The Brewers playoff odds have declined 44.3 percent in the last five weeks.

    Will your favorite baseball team make the playoffs?

    With two wild cards spots in each league. There are 17 teams with at least a 1 percent chance of sneaking into the one-game playoff. So you're telling me there's a chance?

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    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.
