The baseball postseason is quickly approaching and with the season winding down the most likely World Series matchup is the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Toronto Blue Jays according to online sportsbook 5Dimes.
When you take a look at the top four most likely matchups according to the odds they either involve the Cards or the Jays. That is not surprising considering the Cardinals have five more wins than any other team in baseball and the Jays are one of the most prolific offenses to ever take to the diamond.
The Jays and Kansas City Royals are dominating the potential matchups for the American League as they appear in the top seven and 10 of the top 12 most likely matchups according to the odds.
However the National League seems to be more in question with six different teams listed within the top 12 matchups. The Cardinals, Dodgers, Mets, Pirates, Cubs and Pirates are all on the radar at the moment with each of the teams at least notching 79 wins with the final month of the baseball season here.
LONGEST World Series Matchup ODDS
On the opposite end of the spectrum is the least likely World Series matchup listed by 5Dimes. The Washington Nationals and Boston Red Sox clashing in the fall is listed as a ridiculous +930,000 wager at the sportsbook.
That clash is the longest odds by a wide margin, with the second longest belonging to a matchup between the San Francisco Giants and Baltimore Orioles at +770,000.
