The 2019 Major League Baseball playoff schedule is officially set! We knew the field early in the weekend, but it took until Sunday for the final wild card matchup to be settled. The St. Louis Cardinals crushed the Chicago Cubs on the final day of the season to clinch the NL Central by one game over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Earlier in the weekend, the Oakland Athletics and Washington Nationals each clinched home field advantage in the one-game playoff. The Nationals will host the Brewers on Tuesday, October 1st, while the A’s will host the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, October 2nd.

The winner of the NL wild card game will face the Los Angeles Dodgers, while the winner of the AL wild card game will get to face the heavily favored Houston Astros. The Atlanta Braves will open against the Cardinals, while the New York Yankees will face the Minnesota Twins.

The Astros are favorites to win the World Series, and overwhelming favorites to at least advance out of the American League side of the bracket. The Astros are -112 to win the American League, followed by the Yankees at +220.

The Dodgers are right behind the Astros in World Series odds, +275 to +200, but have better odds to get out of the NL side of the bracket. The Dodgers are -118 favorites, well ahead of the +300 Braves. Here’s the full list of World Series and LCS odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook, followed by the full schedule
