    Playoff Probabilities (05/26/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    MLB Playoff Probabilities – How have each team's chances to reach the postseason changed?



    A lot can happen over the course of a 162 games. While we are still months away from October, with more than a quarter of the games in the books, we can get a decent idea of what the postseason picture looks like.

    For some teams, their playoff outlook has already changed dramatically.

    Top Storylines:

    The Dodgers are the most likely playoff team. Los Angeles reaches the postseason 98 percent of the time in our simulations. LA is one of nine teams to have a positive double-digit increase in their projected playoff probability.

    Houston, we don't have a problem. The Astros rebuilding plan has come together quicker than most expected. The ‘Stros have a 5.5 game lead in the AL West and the team's playoff odds have increased by more than 1,500 percent.

    Boston's season has been maddening. The Red Sox have only won three games in a row once. The team started the season 7-3 but has since gone 14-21. The Red Sox were one of the favorites to win the American League but now a playoff berth is a stretch.

    It ain't over till the fat lady sings. No team has been eliminated from the playoffs. There is still a chance even for the Phillies (0.1 percent), the worst team in baseball.

MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor. There are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start.
