MLB playoff picture, standings, postseason odds: Yankees tie Red Sox in wild card; Phillies closing on Braves

The 2021 Major League Baseball season is in its final month, and baseball’s playoff picture is starting to take shape. We officially have our first five postseason teams, as the White Sox on Thursday joined the Giants, Dodgers, Brewers, and Rays. The Astros will likely be the next to join them.

The AL wild card is now the best race. The Red Sox and Yankees are now tied for the top spot and two games ahead of the Blue Jays, and three games ahead of the Mariners. Fittingly, the Yankees and Red Sox wrap up a key three-game series at Fenway Park on Sunday

So how will all this shake out? We’ll find out the answers before the postseason gets started Oct. 5. But it’s also worth asking, what would the MLB playoff picture look like if the season ended today? We have the answer to that question, as well as up-to-date standings and playoff odds, below.
