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.
