Betting on MLB playoff teams explained

Twelve teams qualify for the MLB playoffs, six each from both the AL and NL. The six division winners — three from each league — earn berths, as do the three non-division winners with the best records from both leagues. The top two seeds in each league get a bye through the wild card round. 

Winners of that round advance to face the top seeds in the divisional series. The victors then go on to meet in the league championship series, the winners of which will square off at the World Series

In advance of the season and as it plays out, bettors can place wagers on teams to make or miss the playoffs

It’s a season-long wager that won’t be settled until the outcome is official. In addition to the potential profit if you do end up winning, it’s a bet that can provide you with additional rooting interest all season long.
