MLB Playoff Picture: Brewers Through, But Who Else Will Follow?Published October 8, 2018 by Sol FH
The Brewers send the Rockies hiking, but the Yankees, Red Sox, Braves, Dodgers, Indians, and Astros still on the hunt.
The MLB postseason is in full swing. It has been an action-packed first few games across the board with everything from a 445-foot homer, courtesy of Aaron Judge, to a clean sweep of the Colorado Rockies by a dazzling Milwaukee Brewers team that has not seen much of the post-season in its team history.
Braves vs. Dodgers
To begin with, let's take a look at Game 4 of the Divisional Series between Atlanta and LA. The Dodgers are up 2-1 after two big wins in games one and two. The Braves came back with an answer in Game 3 winning 6-5 after a 5-run second inning. In Game 4, which will play out tonight at 21:30 GMT, the Dodgers are favorites to win at 888 Sport with odds of 1.80. The Braves are locked in at 2.04.
Indians vs. Astros
The Cleveland Indians must win tonight if they want any chance of staying in the playoffs. They are down 2-0 after the Astros outscored them 10-3 over the first two games. Game 3 of the series gets underway tonight at 18:30 GMT and bet365 Sports are offering attractive odds ahead of the action. The UK sportsbook has the Indians as slight favorites at 1.83 on the Money Line, with the Astros just a touch behind at 2.00. This could be the time to take the underdog.
Yankees vs. Red Sox
This is the battle that everyone seems to care about more than anything else in the MLB. The Yankees will be playing at home in Game 3, tomorrow night at 00:40 GMT, which is good news, as they seemed to struggle in Game 1. Game 2 was an entirely different story as Aaron Judge set the tempo of the game with a first-inning 445-ft homerun that almost blew a hole off the Green Monster at Fenway. Betfair Sports also likes the Yankees for Game 3 with the Money Line set for the Yanks at 1.50, while the Red Sox are at 2.62 for the win.
