  • Feb. 25: The early money (which tends to be from sharps) is fading two teams in the NL: the Padres fell from +210 to +245, while the Cardinals dropped from -110 to +110.
  • Feb 18: The opening NL playoff odds favor the Dodgers, Nationals, Cardinals, and Braves returning to the postseason, with the Mets ever-so-slightly favored to claim the final spot.
