The MLB trade deadline helped us determine the contenders and the pretenders in the playoff race, as some teams decided to sell and others decided to go all in for a playoff run in 2022. 

The Baltimore Orioles were one of the potential playoff teams that decided to sell, but several teams in the American League were buyers, including the Minnesota Twins, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners. 

The National League saw one of the biggest trades in MLB history, with Juan Soto going to the San Diego Padres for a haul of prospects. The Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers also made moves to try to improve their playoff odds. 

Using the odds at DraftKings Sportsbook, here’s how each team stacks up in the playoff race following the deadline:

There are several teams that don’t have playoff odds at DraftKings Sportsbook, as division leaders like the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Houston Astros were left off since they are near locks to make the postseason. 

In addition, teams way out of the chase like the Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals and Washington Nationals were also left off the list. That being said, we also broke down each team’s latest odds to win the World Series based on consensus odds following yesterday’s deadline as well.
