Thursday September 25,2014 : Playoff Teams Set for 2014, but Seeding Far From Settled
You’ve bet on Major League Baseball all season long, and now it’s time to start prepping for the postseason. Heading into the final weekend of the 2014 campaign, critics and oddsmakers will pay attention to how the teams in the hot seats handle the final sprint. Although we may know the majority of the teams in the mix, the seeding is up to them.
The final weekend of the season should be heated for three wild card hopefuls. The Athletics (10/1 to win the World Series), Royals (16/1) and Giants (12/1) can clinch their berth with one victory (and in Oakland and Kansas City’s case, a Mariners’ loss). All three will be in action against non-playoff teams this weekend.
As for the division leaders, the Angels are 5/1 to win the World Series, and the Nationals are 11/2 to win. The Angels are in front of the National League by three games, whereas the Nationals sit just one game ahead of the Dodgers (11/2) and remain in flux.
In some respects the division races aren’t even over. The Tigers (6/1) and Cardinals (17/2) may hold the upper hand heading into the final stretch of the regular season, but don’t think that the Royals and Pirates (12/1) aren’t still eligible to reclaim the thrones.
