The MLB postseason is starting on Tuesday, October 5, with some exciting Wild Card games that have fans excited.

In the AL Wild Card game, one of the sport’s most historic rivalries determines who will advance when the Boston Red Sox host the New York Yankees at Fenway. The NL Wild Card, meanwhile, features the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals.

Ahead of the postseason, the oddsmakers handicapped the field and shared the betting odds for both Wild Card games, the AL and NL pennants, and the World Series.

Despite injuries to Clayton Kershaw and Max Muncy, the Dodgers remain favorites to repeat as world champs. The San Francisco Giants follow closely behind, while the Houston Astros are favored to emerge from the AL.
