Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

After Wednesday's article offered up 25 predictions for the final month of the 2014 MLB season, including full predictions on who will reach the playoffs, it's time to dive a bit deeper into those potential October matchups.

Obviously, much can change between now and the end of the season, as there is still an awful lot of baseball to be played, but based on the most likely outcomes, we can take a quick look ahead at how the Wild Card Round and Division Series could play out.

What follows is a quick overview of how the most likely Wild Card Round games could unfold, followed by a complete overview of each subsequent Division Series matchup—looking at the hitting, starting pitching and bullpen of each team.

Again, these matchups are based on predictions made Wednesday, and things could certainly play out differently. This is just a quick look ahead at how things could shape up to kick off October baseball a month from now.
