The National League settled its playoff field heading into the weekend, but it took until Sunday before we knew who would be traveling to face the Washington Nationals in the Wild Card game. The St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NL Central with an easy win over the Chicago Cubs, leaving the Milwaukee Brewers with the short end of the stick. The Nationals will host the Brewers in the National League Wild Card game, scheduled for Tuesday, October 1st. The game will air on ESPN. The Brewers won the season series 4-2.

The winner of that matchup advances to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the best-of-five divisional round. The Dodgers won the season series with each of the Nationals and Brewers 4-3. On the other side of the NL bracket, the Atlanta Braves will face the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves won the season series 4-2. The two winners will square off in the National League Championship Series.

Like the Astros in the American League, the Dodgers are heavy favorites to come out of the National League, followed by the Braves. Here are the full National League pennant odds, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. Below that is the full schedule for the American League playoffs.

Los Angeles Dodgers: -118
Atlanta Braves: +300
St. Louis Cardinals: +700
Washington Nationals: +800
Milwaukee Brewers: +1000
