Handicapping MLB Teams' Odds to Make the Playoffs

It's hard to see the Orioles missing out on the playoffs entirely, but are they more like to win the AL East or settle for a wild card berth?

We know that the Cincinnati Reds have won the NL Central, and we know that the San Francisco Giants have won the NL West. We also know that the Washington Nationals will be playing in October whether they win the NL East or have to settle for a wild-card berth.

Aside from these three things, we don't know all that much in regards to MLB's postseason races. With just a week-and-a-half to go in the regular season, uncertainty is the name of the game in the last leg of the run to October.

With so many contenders still technically in the mix and seven postseason spots still up for grabs, handicapping the mess in Major League Baseball is about as difficult as handicapping a marathon race for snails. 

But what the heck, I figure I'll give it a shot anyway. Scroll ahead for a breakdown of each contender's odds to make the playoffs when all is said and done.
