Dan Karpuc: New York Mets +500 at BetMGM
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 1-2 punch won’t give this team an edge against their opponents, even the Dodgers in the NL. 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 any American League team or getting shorter odds on the Dodgers, I’d rather take advantage of the Mets' odds here.

Lucy Burdge: Houston Astros +425 at DraftKings
The Astros were as close as possible to winning the World Series last season and I think they can get it done this year. They’ve won over 100 games this season and they have what it takes to barrel through the playoffs and win the World Series. Especially with powerhouse players like Justin Verlander and Jose Altuve, just to name two, I see this team being unstoppable in the postseason and have solid value to win the World Series.

Matt Horner: Toronto Blue Jays +2000 at FanDuel
I know, the Blue Jays are incredibly disappointing compared to what we thought they would be this season. They haven’t been able to put it all together, but in the last month or so, they have started to play more as a cohesive unit. This is a team that will still win over 90 games, and they have the talent on the roster to compete with anyone. The Dodgers look like the best bet on paper, but they are a measly +350, so there isn't much value there. With the Blue Jays, you are getting 14/1 odds on a very talented team that has every chance to go off this postseason. I see some value there on Toronto at this number.

Brad Pinkerton: New York Yankees +550 at BetRivers
Even if the Dodgers and Astros are more logical choices here, there's just not enough value on either to pull off winning the World Series. And while the Yankees have had their ups and downs this season, but their ups can be much higher than any team heading to the postseason right now. Teams won't have the luxury of pitching around Aaron Judge when every run (and base runner) counts in a playoff series, and Aaron Boone has plenty of options to give Judge some lineup protection in October -- don't forget about the returns of DJ LeMahieu and possibly Matt Carpenter and Andrew Benintendi. And with MLB's No. 4 rotation and No. 4 bullpen in terms of ERA, the Yankees have the arms to hang with Houston in the ALCS and even the Dodgers in the World Series long enough to let their No. 2-scoring offense take over. The Yankees are a great choice for BetRivers' World Series promotion: Bet $50 on any team to win the World Series and get $5 in free bets for each playoff series they win.
