WOW! That went fast! The MLB Playoffs are here and I have never been more excited about baseball then this season. I said it since the 90's, why can't baseball be like the NBA and give more teams a chance to make the playoffs? It benefits every aspect of the game! Remember the Lower Seeded Teams have ALL 3 games at home in these 3 game Wild Card Series!!!

Not only am I giving out my picks, I also found the Best Odds Online for you to Bet them so no excuses! I would stay away from the Big Favorites and focus on the Underdogs and you will be alright!

THERE IS SOME GREAT VALUE OUT THERE! HURRY BEFORE THESE ODDS CHANGE. Odds change every couple of minutes, so make sure to check updated odds: -CLICK HERE-

This is how I see the 1st round and let's try to go perfect:

 

AMERICAN LEAGUE

 

    1.  Tampa Bay Rays logo Circle Logo Vinyl Decal Sticker 5 sizes!! | Sportz For Less      VS       8. Is this an even better Toronto Blue Jays logo?

Rays just a little too much for the Blue Jays to handle in this series. Their pitching has been dominate and they are a +60 run differential this season. Not to mention they are rolling as one of the hottest teams right now! The Blue Jays are a -10 run differential and will have trouble scoring in this series.

Prediction:  Rays (-215 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-0

 2.   Oakland Athletics - Wikipedia      VS       7.   Chicago White Sox Circle Logo Vinyl Decal / Sticker 10 Sizes!!!

Both teams are struggling going into the playoffs. The White Sox just a little more, but they do have a great 1-2 punch that can get the job done in Giolito & Keuchel. If those bats can wake up this team can go deep. They are going up against Luzardo & Bassit is a No Brainer for me here.

Prediction: White Sox (-110 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-0

  3.    Minnesota Twins - Wikipedia    VS        6.   Houston Astros - Wikipedia

I like this match up best of all! The banged up Astros will be pitching Greinke in game 1. This is a different team in the playoffs, that's for sure! What I cannot get past is their 9-23 road record! How can a team like this win not one, but two road games? On the other hand the Twins are 24-7 at home and should not lose two here, PERIOD!

Prediction:  Twins (-120 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-0

4.  Overstock.com: Online Shopping - Bedding, Furniture, Electronics, Jewelry, Clothing & more | Cleveland indians logo, Cleveland indians, Indians baseball       VS         5. 

This should be the Best Series of all the games. The Yankees in October are something to watch, but they do have the 2nd worst road record out of these 16 playoff teams. The Indians are the HOTTEST team in the playoffs! I am a guy of momentum, so this is a No Brainer also for me.

Prediction: Indians (+100 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-1

bet now

 

 

NATIONAL LEAGUE

1.    Los Angeles Dodgers logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG     VS        8. 

The Brewers didn't deserve a playoff spot, but now anything can happen! The Dodgers been taking it easy the last couple of weeks. They do have an amazing +136 run differential! Playoff Kershaw continues his woes and maybe loses game 2! The Brewers are still undecided who is pitching? They do not have enough fire power for the upset though.

Prediction: Dodgers (-330 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-0

bet now

 

2.  FanMats® 18127 - MLB Atlanta Braves Round Nylon Area Rug with "Script A" Logo - CAMPERiD.com       VS         7.  FanMats® 18132 - MLB Cincinnati Reds Round Nylon Area Rug with "C Reds" Logo - CAMPERiD.com

This should be a good series. Both teams are matched up well. I do like Bauer in game 1, but that's about all I like! The Braves are 1 run behind the Dodgers for the most runs scored this season. That is the difference in this series as the Reds are the worst of all the playoff teams in scoring!

Prediction: Braves (-145 SERIES ODDS) Win the series 2-1

bet now

 

3.         VS         6. Miami Marlins logo Circle Logo Vinyl Decal Sticker 5 sizes!! | Sportz For Less

This will not be an easy series for either team, but yet the Cubs are BIG Favorites. The Marlins have 20 road wins this season and that should be scary for the Cubs. They do have problems scoring runs and are -41 in run differential this season. The Cubs do have a slight pitching advantage, but their bats are just starting to come alive again. Plus the Cubs know how to win important games on their home field. Cubs should win the series, but for betting value I will take the Marlins in a toss up series.

Prediction: Marlins (+160 SERIES ODDS) UPSET the series 2-1

bet now

 

 

4.          VS        5.

Here is the Best Series in the National League! The Padres are the 2nd Best team in run differential this season at +84. They play very well at home. Their offense has been the best to watch all season! How good are the Cardinals with 2 full days of rest? Who Knows? This team is simply amazing to me what they had to do to make the playoffs. All the double headers with no days off is crazy to even think. In the end the Padres will be a good young team for awhile, but just don't have enough experience to get past the Cardinals here!

Prediction: Cardinals (+165 SERIES ODDS) UPSET the series 2-1
