MLB Postseason 2018

The Houston Astros are our unanimous favourites to reach the World Series again with none of our five players choosing the Red Sox, despite their home field edge. We’re more evenly split in our estimation of the Brewers-Dodgers matchup, with the Brewers holding the slight edge there.
