It’s playoff time! A new format change will hopefully add some excitement to this years playoffs. These wild card series all look to be competitive and should give us some great baseball to! Check out the top baseball odds.
The Rays fell to the Guardians in four of six games this year. They scored only 18 runs and allowed 22 runs. When they met last week, all three series games were decided by one run. A 6-5 win was followed by two 2-1 losses.
You can expect similar tight games when they reunite in the Wild Card Series.
Cleveland is the stronger team this season, at least late in the season they were, and Tampa has been on a losing streak. The games will be hosted in Cleveland, which is also another big advantage for the Guardians.
In their season series, Toronto is currently at 2-5 against the Mariners. Both sides met in two series, with Toronto winning the first 2-1 at home in May and then losing all four at Seattle in July.
Toronto is the hotter team and has a home-field advantage. Seattle’s offense is not strong enough, but their bullpen can help. That bullpen makes this series tricky to pick, but I think the Jays will be a little bit better.
This season, the Phillies were 4-3 against the Cardinals. Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt, the MVP candidates, were 16 for 72 (.222) in their respective games against Zack Wheeler, Aaron Nola, and had no home runs or strikeouts, and those will be the Phillies’ game-one and game-two pitchers.
The last time Philly was in the playoffs, they faced off, and St. Louis won (3-2, in the 2011 NLDS). Philly is more motivated than St. Louis after a decade of being in the playoffs. They have better starting pitching and are much more motivated to win this series, but with all of that being said I am taking the Cardinals to win a great series.

The New York Mets are significantly more talented and have a home-field advantage. During the regular season, the Mets lost four of six games to the Padres, who won two of three in San Diego in June and two of three at Citi Field in July in the first series after the All-Star break. But you win with pitching in the playoffs and the Mets will pitch Max Scherzer and Jacob DeGrom in games one and two.
