Dan Karpuc: New York Mets +280 at FanDuel
Assuming that Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom will both be healthy heading into the postseason, it’s very tough for me to imagine that the Mets' 1-2 punch won’t give this team an edge against their opponents, even the Dodgers. With Chris Bassitt as a legitimate third starter and Edwin Diaz as arguably the game’s best closer, I have high hopes for the Mets on the mound. At the plate, this is also a very complete team, with veterans like Pete Alonso, Francisco Lindor, Starling Marte, Jeff McNeil and others as proven producers. Rather than taking a shot on a wild-card team or getting shorter odds on the Dodgers, I’d rather take advantage of these odds.

Brad Pinkerton: Atlanta Braves +440 at Caesars
I mean, the answer is the Dodgers (+170 at DraftKings), right? But what if they don't win the NL? It could be the Mets pulling the upset, but right now during the final week of the season, New York is struggling to put away the Marlins before a crucial, three-game series with the Braves, who have pulled even with N.Y. for first place in the NL East thanks to having the most wins in the NL this month (through Sept. 27). Given the current standings, the Braves (+440) are a much better value than the Mets (best price +280) considering they are tied with New York and could end up with the all-important first-round bye. If that happens, we'll see the reigning World Series champs at half these odds, so grab them while you can.

Lucy Burdge: New York Mets +280 at BetRivers
The Mets have a lot going for them this season and there’s still something special about this team. They’re 97-57 and they’ve won eight of their last 10 games. So they’re not slowing down at all as the season comes to a close and they could really make a run through the postseason. With Max Scherzer, Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil, just to name a few, on board, this team is stacked and I have a lot of faith in them to keep their success going and win the pennant.
