Odds To Win The NL East: Braves Have It Almost Locked Up

With only a handful of games left in the 2020 MLB season, a lot of division titles are still technically up for grabs, including the National League East, where the Braves look to be in the driver’s seat to take the division again.

According to the best baseball betting sites, the Braves are -10000 favorites to win the NL East title with a three-game lead over the Miami Marlins (+2000) and a four-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies (+6600). The New York Mets and reigning World Series champion Washington Nationals are out of contention for the division crown and likely will also miss the playoffs.

In what was supposed to be a shootout during the Shortened 60-game season, only three teams now have a chance to win the NL East.

Here are some key betting sources to look at when making your MLB bets.

Odds to win the 2020 National League East Division
Atlanta Braves-10000
Miami Marlins+2000
Philadelphia Phillies+6600

Odds as of September 21 at Bovada

Atlanta Braves (-10000)

Sitting at 31-22 SU through 53 games, it would take a monumental collapse by the Braves to choke this away. They’ve been far and away the best team in the NL East and are a solid 15-8 SU in 23 home games. 

Offensively, they have a +55 run differential, which is huge considering the next-best team in the division is the Phillies at +3. Atlanta has a four-game slate with the Marlins coming up that will essentially decide the fate of the Braves and the next team on the list.

Miami Marlins (+2000)

“The Derek Jeters, I mean, Miami Marlins don’t have much of a hope.” That’s what I wrote at the beginning of the season and they made fools of all of us. The Marlins are a shocking 28-25 SU through 53 games and anyone who says they had pegged the Fish to be in this position at the beginning of the season is an outright liar.

Considering the Marlins only won 120 games over the previous two seasons, expectations were low, even in a 60-game season. But Miami currently has an 83 percent chance of making the postseason and this four-game series coming up vs Atlanta will decide if they’re NL East frauds or contenders.

Philadelphia Phillies (+6600)

On paper, the Phillies should be wayyy better than what they’ve put on the diamond but “on paper” means nothing in a shortened 60-game season.

Philadelphia continues to be a disappointment after landing Bryce Harper in 2019. The Phillies would need a miracle to catch the Braves and their remaining seven games are against the Nationals and Rays. With a 73 percent chance to make the postseason, they may be able to wake up and make a decent playoff run, but their chances to win the NL East are all but gone.
