Cleveland Indians (1.95) vs New York Yankees (1.87)
The 27-time World Series-winning Yankees will be looking to brush the Indians aside in this series. Though it hasn’t been plain sailing for the Yankees, who trail the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East.
The Yankees are 4-6 in their last ten games and this is why the odds are almost at evens. The Indians are second in the AL Central and have picked up 8 wins in their last ten games.
The momentum is definitely with the Cleveland team, but it’s difficult to say whether they’ll be able to overcome a roster as strong as the Yankees in the series.
Pick the New York Yankees to win.

Los Angeles Dodgers (1.31) vs Milwaukee Brewers (3.50)
The Dodgers look as strong as ever coming into the postseason. Eight wins in their last ten games and topping the NL West throughout the season. They remain favourites for the World Series.
The MLB betting odds have them as clear favourites against a Brewers team that holds a record of 5-5 in their last ten and haven’t been particularly imposing in the NL Central.
Expect a confident display from the home side. Things will have to go right from the start if Milwaukee are to take anything away from the series.
Expect the Dodgers to win here.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Toronto Blue Jays
The Tampa Bay Rays come into the Wild Card games looking like one of the strongest contenders to go to the World Series and the oddsmakers tend to agree.
They are 8-2 in their last ten games and at the top of the table in the AL East. The Blue Jays sit 3rd in the league and go 6-4 in their last ten.
The Blue Jays are worth a punt, as they are on a good run of form and can certainly win games if they’re playing at their best. It will be a very interesting series, whichever way you favour.
Take the Rays to win.
