MLB Playoffs - National League Division Series Odds
National League Division Series Baseball Odds - MLB Playoffs Picks
The San Francisco Giants are back in the playoffs in an even number year, and we all know what that means. The Giants won the World Series in 2012 and 2014. Could 2016 be next? Before the G-Men get into the main portion of the postseason though, they've got nine more innings to play against the New York Mets in what should be a fantastic pitching matchup between Madison Bumgarner and Noah Syndergaard.
The NLDS begins in earnest on Friday afternoon between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Washington Nationals. These two teams ran away with their respective divisions and haven't played any serious baseball for quite some time. The Dodgers didn't play well down the stretch, losing five of their last six games, and now they have to open up on the road against the Nats and will have to steal at least one game in D.C. if they want to ultimately advance to the NLCS.

The Dodgers might not have home field advantage here, but they do have Kershaw set to pitch twice in this series. That alone is why they're the -150 favorites to advance to the ALDS. It's also worth remembering that the Dodgers won five of the six games in the regular season between these two teams. Of course, it's also worth remembering that Kershaw only pitched in one of those six games, and that was back in the middle of June.

The Cubs are the prohibitive favorites to win the National League and ultimately the World Series, but they had to be swearing up and down as Madison Bumgarner mowed down Met after Met on Wednesday night in the Wild Card Game. This is, of course, an even numbered year, and the Giants have won the World Series each of the last two times that statement has been true. San Fran slumped down the stretch of the season for sure, and it's definitely possible that this series could go poorly as well, especially with a bullpen that has been pathetic over the course of the second half of the season. But if by chance San Fran does steal a game in the Windy City, that's going to set the Mad Bum out to win Game 3 and push the Cubs to the brink of elimination. Don't discount the possibility. Chicago only won this regular season series 4-3.

Game Time: 9 p.m. ET ( TBS )
