In the major league playoffs, we have more elimination games coming our ways before getting ready for the World Series. Here are the latest odds from 5Dimes as to who will earn the hardware.
Los Angeles (-113) – It seems like a foregone conclusion the Dodgers will be in the World Series and as these MLB odds show, they are backing to playing like they have most of the season. As of the morning of Oct. 19th, L.A. was on a 14-3 run off and had three players doing most of the damage in the postseason and a bullpen that is shutting down everything. For MLB picks, difficult to bet the Dodgers.
New York (+270) – The Yankees run in the postseason has been fueled by home cooking, excellent pitching from starters and relievers and massive contributions from the ‘Baby Bombers’. New York is 6-0 at Yankee Stadium in the playoffs and has won 19 of 22 since Sept.1 at home. Twice in the playoffs they have been down 2-0 and come back to win or lead in series. Last AL Wild Card team to win Fall Classic was Boston in 2004.
